Semantics...?Aiming line........is really CB direction of travel line
Mind explaining your thoughts here...? Speaking for myself I know where my cue tip is pointed when jacked up over a ball.When shooting jacked up over a ball, it is impossible to know if the cue tip is pointed correctly like mentioned.

Except for the portion of the aiming line that still in your field of vision. Blind shot 101 is to only aim the CB down the first 6 to 12 inches of the aim line. If your fundamentals are solid the rest really shouldn't matter.There are shots where the OB is not in your field of vision, like shooting jack up over a ball.
And since the cue is pointed at a downward angle toward the table, the “ aiming line "is pretty useless.
You kinda responded to my post out of order. The example of semantics was you correcting "Aiming line" with "CB direction of travel line". It's the same thing. Well hold on, let me recant that.... Your "aim line" may differ from the actual direction of travel if you're applying enough spin to develop squirt. However I don't think you're digging that deep.Not semantics.....better definition.
Who doesn't....? Do you have the decoder ring..?I bring alot of real world pool playing experiences into the mix.
Possibly. I think the $100 system will work, but who the hell has time for that when you can already make make-able shots? If I miss, it's because I couldn't leave an "interesting" shot alone and instead shoot a higher percentage shot or play safe. Missing for me isn't aim related, it's that I asked too much, attempted "trick shots", lost concentration/focus, had bad form, or couldn't figure out a way to recover from a bad table situation. Even on days I feel my "aim" is off, it's not that, it's usually bad stance from back pain and takes more concentration to have good form from a goofy tight muscle position/stance.Does this mean you have come to a conclusion about the $100 you just spent?
Yeah I agree with this. I've not used Poolology (looks interesting), but I've done lessons with Gene and the Perfect Aim System, you're 100% right, there are quicker ways to build the database and not all systems are "junk". I find good systems sort of like a force multiplier, gets you on track and on target quicker and makes your practice much more valuable. Instead of a million balls, you might only have to hit a hundred thousand . If you liked this video at all, I'd highly recommend his "Efrin's Elbow" video, it's presented very well. I think he is more of a practical teacher and assumes we are good enough players to evaluate and adapt what he's saying to our own play style. I find his content a breath of fresh air, good advice and some things to think about.I agree with every point he makes in the video, except how he stacks all aiming systems into the same junk pile, with the exception of "quadrant" ghostball aiming. The same type of quadrant practice can be used with traditional fractions or contact points. It's called rote, or HAMB, all based on trial and error and guesstimation. Eventually, with enough practice, your brain figures out where to aim, and that's when you finally start building a visual database of "sight pictures" (as he calls it) in your mind. There is a quicker way to reach that point, he just doesn't know it.
Or maybe this is a democrat making a video to push there agenda through. You know the kind they make, like CNN, doesn't matter if it's true or not. Besides it's kinda funny so who really cares.In political terms, aiming systems are democrats and this video is the republican rebuttal.
Apparently the CTE crew either missed this thread or the cat's got their tongue.
Sure put me on that list. My pleasure.Or maybe this is a democrat making a video to push there agenda through. You know the kind they make, like CNN, doesn't matter if it's true or not. Besides it's kinda funny so who really cares.
Should we add you to the list of those that know nothing about CTE but have become obsessed with it anyways. Now there are some funny individuals on that list, believe me.
