Ok. Still confused but only as to how CTE is supposed to work. The Raga thing was more like incremental clicks on a gun scope. It was an easy shot but the cue ball landing was tricky and perfect.Stan's sweep has nothing to do with the cue stick. It is a visual sweep. The sweep replaced the manual pivot, which was something definable and shown to be in conflict with physics. The sweep took care of that because it was no longer measurable. Pivoting 1/2 tip with a 10 inch bridge results in something concrete. Sweeping your head into the shot from 4 feet away is hard to measure, but let's see what the book says.
This book has got to be the longest tease in all of publishing. Now we're waiting on the website to be redone? Why couldn't the website have been redesigned sometime over the 3 or 4 years that fans have been patiently waiting on the book to be finalized? Seems like an odd way to do things, but maybe the final result will make the wait worthwhile.
