Thanks for the replies.

Already trying things and seeing some flaws.

Looks like my cue tip goes to the left across the cue ball when striking it. I am not coming through straight or accurate. I make it work when things are good, but when there is a bit of pressure it quickly falls apart.

It's a bit pricey, around $150, but the Digicue Blue with interactive app is a very good stroke training tool.

Jonas111...Is Seattle WA an option? I will be up there the first of March teaching, and I can definitely help you. You can then take the lesson home to BC, to practice on your home table, because I video record the entire lesson.

Yes. Used it to help the timing of my stroke. It definitely lets you know if there's any tip steering or other wonky stroke things happening. It's the next best thing to having a good instructor stand next to you to point out any flaws. Sometimes even better, because it picks up things that are difficult to see by simply watching.

I just now ordered one. I've had to shorten my bridge length. With my normal bridge, at break speed, I have a little left English and can not get rid of it.... except with a shorter bridge.

Here's a screenshot of the things it detects. The app explains what each parameter means.

That looks like a great stroke. Was this after you have worked with the device? There is a guy with this device on the Main Thread asking about his results.

Yes, I was inquiring if itís normal to see lower follow through on draw strokes. The best Iím getting is a 6 or 7 on follow through.....and even worse on draw shots, Is that normal? Thanks!

This was after a few dozen shots, working on staying down after the shot and working on that slight pause before the final stroke. The other parameters were already showing good from the start. Having slacked off over the last couple of years on how often I play, I developed a bad habit of rushing shots and rushing from one shot to the next. This little gadget allowed me to get a good feel for my timing. Now I'm back in tune with a more timed shot process and more consistency. It's a great boost to confidence when you run a couple of racks then check the app and see every shot in the green on every parameter. That's what makes the thing so beneficial -- immediate, real-time feedback.

The "Follow Through" isn't how far you follow through with the stroke. It measures the acceleration of the cue during follow through, and that's what gives a good result.
