APA Dr. Cue Lesson 38 – Cushion Compression and Curve Effect!!

One other type of curve is achieved by keeping the cue stick as level as possible. Mostly the result of an extreme draw application as the cue ball compresses the cushion. A resultant bend or arc of the cue ball provides what is often referred to as a level stroke masse. This one is easy to learn and will give you specific knowledge for getting out of some sticky game situations.

  5. Larrygallis says:

    my cousin did this

    We all know you missed that shot but luckily it tapped the ball. I love how the cue ball just glides into course. 🙂

    How can he both miss the shot and make the shot at the same time? Sometimes it is beneficial to err more on one side or the other.

  8. TheRealEmskiHelp says:

    I did this and I got it exactly on target on my third try. I have a video to prove it as well.

  9. TheRealEmskiHelp says:

    haha he did what I did. He split the videos and added the shot after he got it right. I totally forgot to put a ball inbetween to curve round my bad loool.

    I have a video of me doing thi but forgot the ball…

    I know this because his last finger next to his pinky is not bent when getting ready to shoot and when he hits it, it’s bent again.

    TheRealEmskiHelp, What are you trying to prove? Dr. Que obviously knows what he is doing. You sound like an ass, and I wouldn’t want to watch you, let alone learn from you based on your comments.

    Wow that’s amazing. I am an APA league player and I never knew this shot existed. I’m going to practice these last two lessons for sure, because that shot in lesson 37 was pretty sick too!

  13. bigdaddyofaz says:

    dang I never thought of doing the shot this way.

  14. greenManilishi says:

    or you could just say that draw causes a ball to curve off the rail
