Yep. Here's the thread (http://www.billiardsdigest.com/ccboard/showthreaded.php?Cat=&Board=ccb&Number=182561&page =0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=&vc=&PHPSESSID=) discussing it.
FYI, other interesting video thread links can be found under "videos" on my threads summary page (http://www.engr.colostate.edu/~dga/pool/threads.html).

I contacted Andreas Efler and he said they would be coming out with an English language version of this video.
I'll let everyone know when it is available.

Cool! The segment that shows an ultra-slow close-up of an off-center hit is interesting. It seems to show that the tip itself flexes (deflects). Makes one wonder whether one might get less squirt with a more flexible tip.

I guess Fred just passed over that thread.

I've wanted for years to know what the tip does during contact. People debate endlessly the affects of the shaft, the joint and other things but the tip and or the chalk are the only things that actually touch the cue ball and the touching only last for a few thousandths of a second if that. I'm not saying that the shaft (or other components) have no affect just that their affect has to be dramatically less than that of the tip/chalk. I would love to see more videos like this.

I find those videos amazing. Having played pool only 2 years now, I never imagined for a moment those reactions. I think I shall always be watching to see the dust fly, whenever I bank a ball.
Thanks to whomever made those great videos, what an artist.

There is an English version of this site...
I wonder how many looked close enough to realize that there is a link near the bottom of the menu on the left hand side that allows you to read most of the site in English.
Check out this page about the History of Billiards
The English is not the greatest but you can understand the majority of what is being said. Interesting stuff too.
