Only if that's where your "vision center" is (the place where your brain, usually favoring your dominant eye's image to one degree or another, puts the two images together to look like a single one pointed at the target).
I am leary of someone claiming they have the Magic Bullitt. I have seen and heard it before. Including just recently.
I haven't read the last month of this thread, just checking in now...Did you Skype Geno yet DCP? If not, why not?
Well Genomachino came to AZB years ago, hyping his "Perfect Aiming System" & DVD by the same name.
Hawking his $80.00 CD. If the man was some World Class player he would be a sponsored player. Non of the places like Pool Dawg, Muellers, Seberts, etc, have his "Perfect Aiming DVD" in their inventory for sale. Wonder why if it the holly grail?
Like I said before I have actually view the DVD, returned it to it owner, Fast Larry of Lawrenceville, GA. Say nothing that personally excited me.
Aiming or perfect aiming is only one small part of a person arsenal of tools to play pool. If you can not hit a ball straight down the length of a 9 foot table, and get it to roll back in a straight line, you got problems, and there are a lot of other, if's that are all skills one must master to become a better player.
Genomachino is a pretty good salesman, I expect he could make a good living selling Jewelery, Cars, or Hime Improvements. JMHO
Totally understand. I actually thought all this time you were pro perfect aim and con spf instructors.
Back in about 2011 I was on the phone with Stan Shuffet after I had explained how this worked and he told me this. Gene, players are not ready for this.
I did unlock the real secret of aiming and I will not back off on this. The story is the same as it was 10 years ago when I first started teaching this.
When I would go to pool halls around the country I had to do free 10 minute mini lessons so the players could understand the problems that this fixes.
I would usually do about 10 mini lessons and end up with 2 or 3 full lessons. Soon the 2 or 3 players would tell their friends and eventually I would end up with about 10 lessons. By the time I left I did 20 and it was time to go. Why? because everyone else in the pool hall knew it all and they knew that there was nothing that would help their game as I claimed it would. I guess they would just have to stumble and bumble with their game like they always did.
Jerry Stuckert called me from Phoenix after I left town. He said I had the whole pool scene screwed up there. I asked him why? He said he would usually win this one tournament each week. He just played in it and got 5th. The first 4 places went to players I had worked with. He was laughing when he said it but he told me it was the truth.
It sure was fun meeting you on the road when I was teaching and it was great working with you on skype.
Good luck my friend...
I still waiting for my answer about what your were proposing to get the Money Shark to finance, or Shark Tank.
Hope you find time to reply, about your idea. Jerry Stuckart was a strong "B" Player, we have many strong "B's" in the Valley of the Sun.
Jerry was one of my favorite people/players in the valley when I was out there teaching back in 2009.
As far as Shark Tank. Not sure how that will work out. First you have to do a pre show at one of their 4 locations in the USA. Had a spot on a show but didn't do it because of health reasons.
I'm still alive
That's the good thing. Need to figure out if I have the energy to do all this or not.
This isn't something that you just pop on the show and do it.
If we do, do the show you will just have to watch and see what happens.
If I do the show it will be for all the pool players everywhere so they will know that this will help them play so much better and enjoy the game to the fullest.
With my health trouble I might be gone tomorrow. If I could leave this info to the pool players forever That would be as good as it gets for me.
I am not pro Perfect Aim and I am not con SPF instructors. I cant speak about Perfect Aim. I would assume if Geno ever starts traveling and he gets close to Indiana I would have him stop by.
And there are some good things about SPF instruction too. But I feel there are some less than good things about it as well. Obviously others do as well.
I have personally seen him play @ the US Open 9 ball tourney. The man can play.
Very few 60+ year olds are world class, that doesn't mean they haven't learned something about the game to give back.
If you only had an open mind.
Can you give the rest of us a little bit more info? Can you tell us one or two things that you teach in order to get us to bite?
As I've said before, myself and probably others are leary of people that claim to have some kind of magic bullitt.
With the personal lesson at $300 and the skype lesson is only $150 there is no reason to wait.
There are 413 other posts about this and you want one or two things.
He talks about what his system is, it's a sighting system.
The former quote is what this thread is about.
As for systemic content, I have a sighting system that works better than anything I've tried and it plugs into my aim/stance/delivery/ quite nicely etc...
...and he says it's rong. :shrug: :bow-down:
boogieman, meet Geno the Ad Machino.Whew.
Wise sage, oh anointed one, your holy knowledge is filled with blessing.
F* sake, this is a 28 page thread that explains nothing other than you trying to shill your lessons. Why not post in the for sale or instructor section rather than crap up the main forum with a 28 page thread filled with no useful info besides you saying you have the secret to the universe and arguing down anyone with any other thoughts?
This thread is basically useless shilling and I'm surprised the mods haven't moved it to a different forum ages ago. There's not much useful info in it other than saying to know your dominate eye... well no shit. Know how to aim without making your eyes go ooga booga inside your head... yeah that's a given.
Please quit acting like a some holy martyr who rains blessings down on us. You don't get the option to act like god's gift to pool if you're charging. The money is the reward.
I have no hard feelings toward you, and I believe you probably are a damn good instructor who does enjoy teaching and helping others improve. The issue is, this entire thread is a sales pitch and nothing else. Personally I say spill your secret if you want a discussion, or go to the correct spot on the forum to sell lessons. I'm not saying you don't know what you're talking about, I'm not saying your not a damn fine instructor. What I'm saying is, take your sales pitch to the proper forum please. There's no info here other than the secrets of the universe can be yours for $.
Anyone getting a paid or free lesson from you sure are the lucky ones Gene. Keep doing what you are doing. You are a blessing to the pool world.There is only one best way to envision a shot. To find out what the brain and the eyes are trying to do and why they are doing it.
Straightline is good and it will get the dominant eye there. But it can also get the non-dominant eye in the rifle position.
Does it address what the eyes are trying to do? What I teach does.
The eyes naturally sabotage the shot just by how they work. Unless you understand this totally it is hard to fix it totally.
The problems this causes can't be understood looking down a line on a table.
Been done before with tape and string and who knows what else.
It's definitely on the right track.
Bottom line is I know that when I get done with a player they know the whole story from top to bottom and they can see with their own eyes that the whole story is correct.
When I'm gone someone will pick this up and say: This guy really did have it figured out.
Might be 100 years from now though.
CTE is good because it gets the player to move the eyes around but it doesn't address keeping the dominant eye in the correct position. This is why lower level players struggle with it and higher level players sometimes don't see the big deal with it. They are already there naturally with the eyes or pretty close from repetition.
I'm just doing the best I can do to help as many players as I can.
The few that I reach are the lucky ones.
