Very very trueI have a favorite aiming system that works exceptionally well for me. If I wasn't a "geezer" with a "somewhat" nervous stroke and inconsistent alignment I would be 200 Fargo points higher.
I have beaten several pros over the years with it.
I'm a former Physics & Mathematics scholar in the Honors College of a large well respected university. I love that system because I know WHY it works not simply HOW it works.
It also has the added benefit of being pretty easy to explain to someone who listens rather than argues just to argue and/or defend what they've been intellectually invested in for years [whether that has been 2 years or 62 years]
I didn't invent it and I don't sell it ... I simply use it.
I came to this forum to see what others think of other systems. All I've learned here is that is that "if you 20 pool players a question, you'll get 25 answers and most of them aren't worth much" ...
Btw, I had already learned that over 50 years of playing pool and this experience suggests not much has changed over that 50 years.
Discussions have value, whereas Arguments have lots of energy and little else to offer.
It's been interesting, but fortunately I love the aiming I already use ...
I'll just work on my execution ... how & where one aims doesn't mean much if you can't hit your damn target.
