HIGH RUN STILL TO COME !
I can play shots either way but I know I get a lot less skids with outside English
In my experience, if the balls are polished and the cloth is new, inside will only take significantly on very soft shots where the CB hits the rail at a near 90 degree angle. I’m always surprised when the inside seems to disappear after a firm hit comes off the cushion at an acute angle.When you need to kill the cue ball on a cut shot to hold position for shape on the next ball on the same end of the table (as opposed to going all the way down the table and back) inside spin can really come in handy if you can use it and feel confident in making your shot. Bottom inside even moreso.
I love using inside as well on our worn cloth, but I’m pretty sure you’d feel a little differently if you played all your big matches exclusively on freshly installed new Simonis cloth on the bed and cushions, like the pros do.I love inside english. I never understood why folks have an aversion to it. outside english deflects just like inside english. You just use outside more often. Spend some time on the table practicing different amounts of inside from different distances, get the aim and angles down. It becomes a powerful tool. Plus it's cool to watch when you hit shots well with inside. Chicks dig it and you become a hero to millions of people around the world. Just like me.
That is very interesting...sounds like a Titanic Thompson hustle.A quick cushion nose rub with 2k grit sandpaper
"You have to play for the skid." LisciottiThe Friction Factor is enough to make inside my last option considered. Sometimes it's the best option even after considering all else first. So if it's, "oh shit I got a kick", I knew it could happen.
How is aiming harder with inside?It's not just the pros that avoid inside spin, it is a harder spin to aim with
it's not. it's the same as any other aiming with outside or center ball. It's just that folks don't do it very often so they aren't as dialed in with it.How is aiming harder with inside?
I think it was shot 4 of Bert's 60 minute work outit's not. it's the same as any other aiming with outside or center ball. It's just that folks don't do it very often so they aren't as dialed in with it.

It's funny you say that, I saw a segment with trump and lisowski, doing a Q and A at last years UK championships. And thay said almost the same phrase. Thay called it helping side.It's not as natural and ends up going against the angle so a miss is more likely due to needing to judge for throw and deflection. Outside is talked about as "helping" english by Buddy Hall and a few others when pocketing balls, inside is probably called hell english LOL Going against the grain so to speak of the shot vs with it when using outside.
My preferred shot on Gold Crowns was to go 3 cushions around the table."Get in english" is often inside. Some like to use it to make the pocket effectively larger.
I think using inside follow on a ball on the side rail to go three cushions around the table used to be far more popular than today when players tend to use more outside draw. I wonder if it was harder to keep the draw in the old days. The follow shot would have been mandatory with the big cue ball.
