I thank all of you so very much for taking the time to watch my video and for your kind comments. Confirmation that my efforts are appreciated
reinforces my enthusiasm to continue to provide new videos.

Got any ideas? Share them with me. I might just take a shot at producing them.

I always wonder about the different strokes one pocket players use. I see Efren apply different use of his wrist.
How he kills the rock is amazing. And getting maximum spin on the cue ball is great.

I posted this video in the links and review forum on Friday but no one seems to go there. Only 5 visits in all.
So, I'm taking this opportunity to post it here in hopes that you guys will take more notice. Many of you know much of this stuff already
but there are so many others who I feel can benefit from these videos. For that reason and because I just enjoy putting them together.
I hope you enjoy this one. If so please encourage me by saying so and sharing it on your own social pages.

I didn't get the up load issue fixed. The problem belongs to cyberlink but I did learn a way around the problem and it works something like what Sheldon was telling me.
So thank you Sheldon. You know your stuff.

When I was in Phoenix I noticed Scott Frost has about 50 bridges he uses in tight situations, and when he is on , he is very formidable.
I asked him about it, but of course he said something like, he didn't even realize he did it.
That could be true , but he sure has a lot of them, for it to be accidental.

That's a lot of bridges, Billy.
I use a few different bridges but mostly I just vary the length of my normal bridge. I do this in accordance with my primary needs for that particular shot.
As an example, when shooting a shot with distance between cue ball and object ball I might use a slightly longer bridge than I would if the two balls are close together. If I had a shot which required precise cue ball positioning I might bring my bridge hand in considerably closer to the cue ball. If need be I can still generate power on these shots but the contact on the cue ball will be far more accurate.

In retrospect I know I do these things but because I've been doing this for so long I may be making these adjustments unconsciously. A kind of automatic adjustment.
It may be the same for Scott. I think I have three varieties of rail bridges.

Nice observation!

Tom
