Similar to when you hit very low right inside and it spins outward to the left,
Doesn't seem to make sense lol but it still does it!


Man those are some strange balls and a small tip

Mr. 3C, Howdy;

What is the angle of the cue? As the elevation of the cue's butt is increased doesn't that also raise the equator of the Cue Ball?
Have read and heard many opinions regarding that in reference to Masse and other high angled cue shots. So, basically it is hit
below the equator even if it appears to be hit above. Perception, is not always as it appears.

I can assure you, the CB was contacted, 'center/above center' in relation to the angle of cues descend.

NOTE: The cue never descended to the cloth!

Pilot replied, "The spin is pretty powerful." Lets ask this question, "Where does a player contact the CB to apply Extreme effect, (sidespin)?"

Rich, the tip is 12mm.

The slight cut angle and the object ball being froze help the cb with enough of a glance hit backwards that it gives the effect of draw english. It glances slightly backwards for the top to throw back into the rail then the left english takes over and masses the cb back. Just my thoughts

You guys do realize the OB is frozen on the rail at the center diamond, (2 diamonds from the long cushion).

When the OB is contacted by the CB it hits the rail and sits there for a millisecond before it travels backwards on the, 'bed cloth' before it even contacts the 2nd rail around the 1st diamond on the short cushion, then the extreme English takes over!

Not draw but spin only. Upon contact with the object ball, the cue ball basically stops. The imparted left spin allows the cue ball to float the rail. The side spin does the rest.
