The Kicking video is the best demonstration I have ever seen or read about. This information is very valuable for kicking (of course), position play and safety play.

I have a table at home and hit the pause button many times. To this day I still watch the whole thing from beginning to end to reenforce my memory on a bi-weekly basis.

Actually all of the videos are excellent and presented very well. At $8.99 each you cant go wrong.

Have a good day.

My banking and kicking has improved so much since I purchased the 4 DVDs and watched them so many times and took notes and made drawings and diagrams. Tor's system is so easy to understand. I've practiced by myself for several hours, several times, just doing one-ball banks and end-rail kicks and now I've improved a whole lot. Today, the best pool player in our town told me I was "really good at banking". I highly recommend his DVDs.

I downloaded them all. It's top level instruction and very well presented. Tor is a great teacher and player and has worked hard to produce a quality product.

RJ and the other posters are right on 100%

Not only is the Kicking video great for Kicking its also great for position, safety and banking play.

The best $9 you will ever spend for instruction.

You may have to watch it many times. But once its locked in your game will sky rocket.

Have Fun (Oooops just noticed.......double post)

Here are my notes - 06-20-2016, 07:31 AM

I think they are great, the one struggle I ran into was trying to keep all of the numbering adjustments and such straight in my head.

I thought it would have been helpful for Tor to include a 'cheat sheet' of sorts that gave an overview of the different adjustments based on ball position.

To help myself learn, I created this cheat sheet that covers the adjustments for single rails, and also 2 rail and 3 rail kicks. They won't be especially valuable if you haven't seen the vids.

I use when practicing and just as a reference when I get confused - perhaps someone else will find it useful - the pdf was too big to attach, click here to view as images (2 pages)

All the stuff Jimmy Reid ever released is great and useful to have in your toolbox.
knowledge is pure power. lowry presented it well- no question. but nothing new. just enough time (decades) inbetween the release.

back to topic. if oyu work on it, and understand it, it s worth. as usual. and noone can tell you, if it s worth FOR YOU, hm? Noone can tell you that your game will raise several skill levels just by watchin some hours of pool dvd s

I have it, and I think it works great. Some of it is information that I have previously had, but he explains it really well. My kicking game has improved tons. Totally worth it.
