For me the benefit is "Touch"again... releasing the cue at the point of contact or millimeters prior to, will produce none of the claimed benefits of a slip stroke (throw).
The point is to eliminate the potential stroking errors during the "push" portion of the stroke. If this is not the case, and I have it all wrong. Please someone explain what possible benefit comes from letting the cue slide through you hand once you've made contact with the ball.
