Hey thanks for the response.
I don't find CTE to be particularly foreign actually.
I am new to pool, and have no qualms trying anything that pockets balls.
I had been using shishkebob for my main aiming method for the last 6th months with good, if not inconsistent success. Before that I tried ghost ball (of course), CJ Wiley TOI, and Hal Houles quarters system.
I'll keep trying CTE and see how it goes.
The question still remains though, how do you determine whether the shot is inside/outside? Experience? Some sort of visual reference?
You must at least have enough experience to be able to visualize where the OB will go if shot from the initial fixed ccb provided by the visuals/perception. That is how you know whether or not the perception needs thinned with an inside pivot/sweep or thickened with an outside pivot/sweep.
