Good post. The truth is that the amount of "followthrough" has no bearing on the effect with the CB. That effect is predetermined at contact with the CB (CB leaves the tip after 1/1000th of a second). Certainly decelerating the cuestick can cause problems with speed control, which is why we develop a standard 'range of motion'...which can be a pendulum swing or a piston stroke. A pendulum is easier to repeat and very likely more accurate because it's a simpler movement of the cue, and doesn't involve the shoulder (which is a ball and socket, which can easily steer the cue).
How about kill shots ?
