Damn it we are talking about the pendulum stroke not a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG pause in the stroke. Sorry I got side tracked thinking about the players stroke, but I am 100% sure John Mora has a pendulum stroke

With a non-elbow drop stroke the follow through is going to be limited and it will have an angled-downward motion. Players should stroke in the way that is their strength. Some player are natural elbow-droppers with excellent timing. They shouldn't suddenly try to conform to a pendulum stroke just because some instructor said they should. And I'm an instructor.

You do something my playing partner does a lot, especially when needs a lot of draw. We call it "screwing the ball in". The back hand twists to the right in a screw driver motion. I don't think you do that all the time, as my friend also does not.

If you end up just a little left of straight, consistently, it is very hard to change. I end up a hair left of center. I am always told I need to fix it but it is so much a part of my aim and overall game I am not sure it is worth the effort. anything you can repeat consistently is reliable. I know that is heresy but it is the ability to do exactly the same thing each time that makes consistency. If you ever figure out how to get that stroke perfectly straight let me know how you did it.

I see a lot of pros who finish slightly off to one side consistently. They don't finish off randomly left then right, it is always to one side and most commonly a touch to the left. It might be they slightly favor one side of the cue ball, inside or outside, and the force of impact off dead center results in a slight deflection from the impact.

Do you finish slightly off on very soft hits?
I hear what you're saying and it's intriguing, but often, players who struggle with consistency but consistently finish to one side have aim/alignment issues.
