I tried to delete this because I decided it was too confusing.

I don't believe in the technique of throwing the cue anymore than I believe in a teacup grip. Tried them both over the years and have come to the conclusion after watching the top players play, that these methods are more of a Band-Aid approach to stroke flaws and movement than they are good, reliable fundamentals.

Hi , I've ran into many guys over the years that have done his, either throwing the cue , or worse yet , to me is when you have one or two balls left on the table, they take there cue and rake the remaining balls to the side and walk off, no handshake ,, no nice shooting ,, no nothing---- I love beating these guys---Mikey

I did not mean it literally. I meant holding it light so all that there is is the weight of the cue and the pendulum swing, no muscle involvement. Based on sids response, I tried unsuccessfully to get the thread deleted.

When scott was teaching me the stroke, he said if you are doing it right, it is like 'throwing the cue', although your fingers do keep it from flying across the table LOL.

I would agree with that.
