  2. rotinknee2 says:

    just curious what kind of stick do you play with?

  3. forcefollow says:

    Mcdermott m14b, but that particular cue is a Strickland cuetec with a thunderbolt shaft.

  6. culiced says:

    nice vid.. appreciate it…

  7. chupicdog says:

    Good vids. Nice job!

    you cant always follow through (1:54). if balls are close you must avoid a push shot with a fast but short stroke. this is one of the most common mistakes by beginners.

    Check my vids or biljartkaitzer’s whipshots collection, you’ll see that neither of us draws the cue back, the proper technique is a “weightless” stroke, this means that no additional weight from your hand grip comes to play (pressure on the cuebutt means additional weight). I get that by holding the cue just with middle finger and thumb, the weight of the cueball is enough to make your cue squirt and get out of the way.

    Damn. I always jab, like hitting the cue ball fast will hit the ball harder. I have to start with changing from a hard grip.

    im a filipino really fun of playing pool and i am so thankful with your vids. Its really great watching all ur vdeo clips.

  12. COGsoldier17 says:

    It is a myth that most players try to keep it level as possible. The try to keep the cue on the same plane, be it a few degrees above level or what not. It’s never jacked up high in the air, but it is FAR from level as possible for most pros.

  13. forcefollow says:

    That’s what I’m saying.

    Thanx,
    Marcus

  14. mikejmcgro12 says:

    i get confused..i dont know if my elbow and forearm should be in a perfect line or not….

  15. forcefollow says:

    It would be ideal. But some pros (Gabe Owen) do not have perfect alignment.

  16. mikejmcgro12 says:

    when YOU shoot do you have your elbow and forearm perpendicular to the floor?

  17. forcefollow says:

    yes…

  18. sttsquash says:

    Is that wrong if someone in pool goes down as a snooker player?

  19. forcefollow says:

    Snooker technique is great for pool. Have you ever seen Steve Davis play pool? He’s awesome.

  20. califoolio says:

    what kind of shaft do you usually play with? have you tried the mcds i shaft?

  21. 123flashdrive says:
