Question This is weird,, try this out and report back... - 02-08-2013, 08:40 AM

Just for fun, and something different....

Step 1. Line up every shot, (that is not straight in), as a half ball hit.

Step 2. Use your tip or some other adjustment to 'fix' the angle, since most wont be exactly half ball hits....

Step 3. Fire when ready..


The human body, or mind, will do the proper correction, and you will make the shot... Is this crazy or what ?

What do you mean by "fix" the angle. Like parallel shift or pivioting at some point.

Yep, it's definitely crazy. Especially coming from a self proclaimed pro! If it was that easy, everyone would REALLY be 100 ball runners.

We'd all love to see a video of one of your 100 ball runs Steve. That would be awesome!

I practice this often.The mind figures a lot out if you let it.

Any offset or angle that works at 1 diamond separation between the CB and OB will not work for 7 diamonds.

Mr. Yoda,

Would that be something like CTE?

I'd love to try what you're suggesting, but based on your post-- I have no clue what you're really saying.

Re-post and give us step-by-step details as to what you're doing so we can replicate it.

Does anyone else understand? If so, help me catch-up.

Dave Im not sure what he's doing but what I do sometimes is set up some angled shots.(close to a half ball, clear to a 90 degree cut)

My start is at the half ball,try to let your eye's find the correct line and shoot.I dont spin the ball at all,just something I practice.Just try to pocket the ball.

I think he means align on the centre to edge line, then 'judge' the cut angle from that perspective.

I guess it makes some sense as you are positioning yourself right in the centre of all possible cut angles.

Whether it's easier to judge the angle from there I guess I need to give it a go.

Must be his other 'secret aiming system'.

I think he is telling us to make the half ball hit on all cut shots our starting point. Now this places the starting “contact point” exactly at the quarter ball mark. Now you have at most a quarter ball adjustments to either side. You make an adjustment left or right and let your subconscious finish of the shot. It seems interesting and worth a try.

Actually this works. When I first heard of CTE I thought I would try this. Stand right on the cte line and simple adjust thicker or thinner as needed and go straight down to that position. It's not consistent but if you are a decent player then it will work pretty good for most shots.

You can do the same thing by looking at the shot as a dead straight shot as well and adjusting off that. This is what Tommy Kennedy said he did in the 96' article on aiming.

You're not exactly using your subconscious, at least I wasn't. You just start from a known point and adjust to what you think is about right.

I understand your 1/2 ball aim yields a 1/4 ball contact but from that set up one still has a 1/2 ball variation in aim point, 1/2 ball back to center or 1/2 ball farther out for edge to edge. I do not see this narrowing it down to a 1/4 ball adjustment, at least not visually. Am I missing someting?

This is the right idea, but remember, just bored and playing around with things, not extolling a new or revolutionary aiming system. Or any aiming system at all. Just being interested in how the human spirit can make a correction from a half ball starting point.

I liked that thread that tried to describe every aiming system on the planet, wish we could start that one up again !!
