Here it is....again, you can't really see but my eyes are closed BEFORE getting down on the shot...I cannot "see" where my bridge hand is landing in relation to the cue ball...as you can see from some shots I am off to the side. Yes it is cheating if you close your eyes while getting down on the shot...they must be closed in the standing position.
I must say, I am absolutely amazed! In my 63 years, I have never seen anything that comes close to what I read and watched.
You come on here, state that aiming systems are for noobs. Knock Stan's curtain video by stating that your Jedi system can do the same, and then actually post a video showing you taking almost 5 minutes and a large number of attempts to pocket ONE ball! And, in your mind that somehow disproves CTE. Just mind boggling.
Since your Jedi system absolutely sucks, here's a video of a self proclaimed dog at pool that you could get some lessons from. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSY3R0wCCn4
Ha ha. I've personally known Matt since he was 15. He is no better now than he was then. Maybe half a ball in all these years.
True nobody as far as I know has ever made the shot I just made on film. But this isn't about accolades. I'm sure I could make more with some practice, I almost made the first one...and without actually having to pull my hood down I made it on my third attempt. The pulling action kind of messes up my shot routine. You know how if you play with a ball cap on and get used to flicking it up...and you will do it even without the hat on. Anyway, this aiming system proves that you don't need aiming systems...I mean I just made a shot, and came close several times while blind folded...forget about curtains covering up half the table...I essentially had a curtain covering up my face.
Appleton - ghostball (per a recent article of his in billiards digest)
Van boening - side of ferrule aiming (per his aiming video)
I understand what you are getting at regarding systems, that many of the best players use one, and I agree, but it also seemed like they were all lumped in with CTE by your post.
