    great video

  3. TSBillards86 says:

    from the beginning of your video to about 38 seconds in is complete opinion. A perpendicular masse as you called it is really called a full masse and is usually just as much used in a billiard game as the half masse shots you are explaining. Both percentages are low and it ticked me off how you think a perpendicular masse shot is only used in trick shots. I use them in both when need be.

  4. TSBillards86 says:

    Also the type of shot you explained through out your video is probably the same percentage of making it with a masse then a kick or bank from the part of the table we could see. Please do not associate a FULL MASSE with trick shots as it is not the case all the time. Thank You

    you’re the man. Dean from Dean’s pool tips kills me. he doesn’t know shit he’s not fit to teach. I’m banned from commenting on his videos so I’ll bitch about him here and give you props. For anyone trying to learn you’ve come to the right guy.

  11. alewisgb says:

    i use the other end of the cue and it works

  12. hasukumori says:

    Well done Sir, and thanks for the info. Also I deffinately agree with you about Cue control and kick control being the best way to spend practice time. But sometimes your opponant just leaves you with that CRAP shot that requires Masse because a bank shot just wont due.

  13. hasukumori says:

    @sonictapz I hope you’re not expecting to watch this Video and start curving your ball all around the table. The most important and subtle part of the Masse is the tip grooming so your Cue grabs the ball correctly. But after that it’s all about experimenting with the Masse and the english and getting a FEEL for it after HOURS of practice. Especially if you dont have an expert standing over your shoulder correcting your minor shot errors because with the Masse it’s all about the small stuff..

  19. thebnzwalch says:

    any tips for not wrecking the table? i was doing the shots alright and gettting fair amount of curve but the follow through kept hitting the table

    Another great video. I just started playing pool and I appreciate Your calm and easy language. I stumbled on Your videos today and will surely come back to improve my skills. Good job!

  21. viemaillot04 says:

    does the quality of the table have an effect on the curving of the ball? because i’ve tried it many times, but mostly i couldn’t curve it..
    but at time it did! =D
