I’m hoping someone comes out with a new system for aiming.

The question as to whether good equipment makes one play better can't really be addressed by asking if everyone would play more weller with premium equipment.

A more accurate question would be would a given player play better with a premium cue, vs a lesser quality one.

Presuming all are structurally equal:
I think a pro would play better with a quality cue, vs an cheapo.

I think I play better with any of my quality cues, vs the dufferins I have.

I don't think a true beginner would play better due to cue change though.

Use to fish with this old retired guy, he fished with one fly pattern, in one size. He always got fish because he could read water, read fish hiding spots, and know how to fly fish.

Remember when their was like 3 brands of Pool Chalk, most people play off the wall. Great player improvised, adopted, overcame, and won because of skill not equiptment,

If a Cue was so important, all you would need is a 20K Black Boar Cue to be best player in the World. Sorry 20K Cue will not make you better player, or World Beater unless you have skill of World Beater.

Take a lesson or 10.

Tables?? IMO Since the major fire @ Brunswick, and their business focus shift? Not only their tables but all tables don't play according to any of the math/systems.

I'm not a system player but I expect if I hit a ball from here to there, it should go there, and no pool table does that.

Cues?? Ya I think there's been some advances, but I think most of those the average player will have a difficult time taking advantage or them.

I'm an average player.

Member Geno, has his Perfect Aiming System, the word is from Geno, it's perfect.

I was going to bring up Poolology, invented by BC21, Brian Christ. It really is an advancement in playing pool. The thing that sets this system apart is that it tells you the fractional aim point that will pocket two balls randomly placed on the table, given a normal amount of throw. The idea is to speed up the learning process for beginners so that they begin to recognize when the shot "looks right." When you master Poolology you no longer need it.

I'm not aware of anyone who has found such a simple relationship between the balls and the rails. I think it qualifies as a new advancement in the game.

Not unless your expensive cue is adding something to the task. I don’t write any better with a silver pen than a 25 cent Bic. Doesn’t matter if the silver pen is 90% pure silver or 30% pure...or has a titanium nib.

Joe Tucker’s “Aiming By Numbers” training system comes close (with the help of numbered training balls). Here’s Bob Jewett’s article about it:

It is in one sense, but it uses kind of a brute force method. With Poolology you use the same balls you play with and the answer is derived with simple math. I believe it is revolutionary and is not getting the attention it deserves.

Tucker reminds me of a Rube Goldberg contraption whereas Poolology is more like a nice, clean iphone.
