From your lips to Gods ears.There is none. The whole thing (aiming "correcting" your stroke) is complete hogwash that cannot be believed by a thinking person.
An aiming system can help you point the cue in the right direction. You yourself have to find a system to align your body correctly in order to stroke on the line provided. If you want help to stop twisting, try stroking the cue back and forth and focus on the cue moving in a straight line, while just "forming" your hand around it. At the very least you'll become acutely aware of the influence your hand is having.
I'm glad he puts up the videos as they are. It's no knock on CTE, for all I know, CTE helps him a great deal and he could have missed many more shots without it. The point is, that they are real and give an accurate representation of his skill, and maybe what a lot of people can expect to achieve. I'm aware that talking/demonstrating does take away from your performance a bit, as well, but that is real too. Most people don't realize how hard you have to try to play well, they think pros just shoot without looking. What I dislike are demonstration videos with chalkmarks or chalk traces in the cloth, indicating that there have been dozens of attempts before. That is fakery, designed to make people believe that they will hit center pocket every time, they don't even have to work on their mechanics, because the system will magically fix their mechanics and compensate for all table and ball factors. That to me is way, way worse.It would do your cause well if you could admit the obvious once in a while. I would not post a video where I failed to execute the demonstration shots. I would figure out what I was doing wrong and why and then redo the video.
You only say this because he's not preaching your sermon.Lmao. Well, he, has no clue concerning anything CTE so how in the hell could I possibly agree.
No. I’ve asked Dan specific questions about CTE and all he can do is quote other CTE users for the answers. Shows he had no understanding clearly.You only say this because he's not preaching your sermon.
To say Dan doesn't get it or the rest of us don't shows a lack of intelligence.
If we really didn't get it, and most of here if not all. have got a good understanding on how aiming works.
Beginners clear up to very advanced players just wouldn't understand it according to your logic and most of cte users...really..lol
Be thankful that there are people willing to experiment and help others. Otherwise none of you would have anything to ridicule. If you want to do a shot making contest on 4" pockets I have some people willing to accomodate you for big $$$.Be thankful there's a margin of error in the pocket.(we should all be thankful) you'd see the truth in everything.
Again, you can't control everything that's happening in the collision, many factors come into play. I'm alright with believing otherwise.
9 hours and you were a whole 3 games ahead. I GAVE you most of the games you won. You didn't EARN them. And you're scared to ever play again. Oh sure played for fun. You were a huge effing ASSHOLE on RSB, far more than you are here, because of rules. So don't act like that match wasn't meaningful. And don't brag about the 10k, you got 2k of it. Your backer had to drag you off the porch to play after you ducked me 3x. You would have NEVER played had you not been goaded into it with the promise of a team to jack with me online during the lead up.The score that counted was 9-6 for $10k.
JB is also counting games we played for fun way back when. If that isn't laughable and pathetic, I don't know what is.
I bet you do...your awesome.Be thankful that there are people willing to experiment and help others. Otherwise none of you would have anything to ridicule. If you want to do a shot making contest on 4" pockets I have some people willing to accomodate you for big $$$.
I think he gets it( we all do, just how there's no adjustments for all those shots) but what he's really trying to do is help you with how you're doing it.No. I’ve asked Dan specific questions about CTE and all he can do is quote other CTE users for the answers. Shows he had no understanding clearly.
You have referenced this thing about us pointing out failures and ignoring successes with CTE several times. I think you are missing a key point so let me clear it up:
When you are successfully making shots you may or may not be using CTE. The observer has no way of knowing, other than recognizing that CTE CANNOT work as described. It is geometrically impossible. So when you play well "with CTE" many of us realize that you are making those shots with some kind of altered CTE method that you yourself probably do not fully understand. If you did then you would have no interest in constructing experiments in your shop to test what is really going on with CTE.
When you are failing at pocketing balls with reasonable frequency while doing CTE demonstration videos, it says that you are either not performing the CTE steps correctly, or that you are and it doesn't work. It is inconceivable after over a decade that you could still be doing it wrong, so that leads to the idea that it just doesn't work. See the difference?
I know you will reject this reasoning but I don't need to get a reply. I just wanted to explain why success does not mean CTE works while failure might mean it doesn't.
LOL, help......that's hilarious. Nothing you or other knockers do is aimed at helping anyone. You even use objective aiming and yet you make yourself subservient to those who reject the objectivity in the methods. Because of objective aiming you have achieved a decent level and yet you make yourself into a tool for those who would rather that all such aiming systems go away.I think he gets it( we all do, just how there's no adjustments for all those shots) but what he's really trying to do is help you with how you're doing it.
