Did you ever go frog gigging when you were a kid? The bridge stick should never touch the palm of your hand. You were right while ago. You really do (spear) the shot.You have to shoot It with your fingers not your palm. No good player "except Scott Frost" would try or should try to shoot with his normal grip. I'll bet you don't use the bridge like Scott does.And I'v never seen you hit a ball. What are you going to do..Scoop It? LOL John B.[/QUOTE
THats how I shoot with the brige and I think I can draw the cue ball pretty good. Now that I am older I lost pretty good distance but. I will shoot it my way you shot it youre way and we aill see howe much difference thier is.
Spearing the ball came from a one handed player because he could reach further. and it was better shooting that way one handed jacket up. Because it was harder to reach and shot over the ball. And by spearing Jacket up you could do it.
I like the way Scott does it And I did that 50 years ago. And I have a great wi percentage on top off all that. And I would make a game with anyone. I didnt care who they were.
And I think I have the best recorcd in the history off pool after 24 houers. Its a hundred %. I dont think that can be beat. Maybe tied. I never played in tournemets. BUt I have some pretty good records that I dont think will get beat. And I alawys got a game.
I never had to sit around waithing for a game. And I would back and bet on 4 and 5 games at a time. And I was in on the scores weather it was pool cards sports whatever the game I was in with it.
And if you dont no what you are doing that can never happen. What chance do you think that all these players would have if they had too hustle for a living playing pool?
Maybe 5% and 2% off the women.One last thing you said too look in a book and see howe they do it. You wouldnt want my discreption off what I think about the pool books. And If I would breack them down to what is said.
It would be a joke. Some books are great other books shouldnt even be out thier. Do you think the greatest players or athlets learned out off a book.
THey learned it themselves and what works for them. By trial and error. And they made up thier own styles and fundametals. Whatever worket for them. And felte comftrable too them. THe recorded and programed themselves and theur minds and practicet and played tell they could do it.
All the greatest players have thier own style and way off doing it. And if you cant do it you will never be great. And everyone has a limite to what thier ability can do. And if you dont have the ability you can practice and play for ever and you will never be a champion.
And I am saying it. so someone doesnt bull shitt you.
