I kind of use part of this method. I makes using side spin easier. The only issue i see with this method is aiming with shots smaller then a 1/4 ball. I kind have to figure out how to ghost ball it figuring out the edges of the ball.Using basic fractional references (full, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4) in conjunction with the edges of your shaft/ferrule, or even quarter increments of your shaft/ferrule, is a great aiming method.
You don't.I use SVB type aiming. He is not bullshitting anybody. If people can´t understand how it works it does not mean it can´t be true. Why would SVB lie?
Anyways I made video just to show lil bit how SVB aiming works. I did not plan it or take it again so it is a lot of mumbling ...
I disagree.Using basic fractional references (full, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4) in conjunction with the edges of your shaft/ferrule, or even quarter increments of your shaft/ferrule, is a great aiming method.
Using basic fractional references, you should aim your body and center of the tip and cue ball.
I use different parts of my shaft to aim. That what SVB say he uses. Dunno about rest of his system but for me that´s close enough. I don´t know specifics of his aiming but i figured out my way and it happens to be same or similar what SVB uses.You don't.
Svb's is different.
Assuming he aims as he described in the DVD.
I doubt if Shane can tell what 45 or 42 or 39 degree hits are consistently.I don´t have much of records from my aiming drills but i found one where I drill various half ball positions and then 35-38 degree cuts and then 40-42 degree cuts. This one was just with follow because i played just carom few months and got into habit always put sidespin.. I needed little recalling how to aim without sidespin.. I was rusty on these but still made ok work.. i think.
35-38 degree cuts I aim without sidespin with my edge of cue to edge of object ball. I don´t always put exactly same angle on purpose too. So i kinda have to be aware minor details when cut is slightly more or less than that. Those cuts start around 19:30. After that i drill 40-42 degree cuts where i aim edge of my shaft few millimeters to air from edge of object ball.
I have made a lot of research to this matter. Not only to myself but to teaching purposes. There is a lot of cueball control stuff hidden in many of my aiming drills.I doubt if Shane can tell what 45 or 42 or 39 degree hits are consistently.
But, I bet he can visualize the hit to pocket the ball and send the cue ball where he wants .
Sure.I have made a lot of research to this matter. Not only to myself but to teaching purposes. There is a lot of cueball control stuff hidden in many of my aiming drills.
Example : those half ball cuts to corner around 11:30 mark will bring cueball straight back from rail very accurate. It is great reference to know. It is then easier to then estimate english needed for position. Those side pocket shots after those corner shots are exactly same...
