It looks like some of the masse shots involved a little ferrule action, but the angle was not perfect to tell. Do you think that there might have been ferrule contact? It's clear that the shaft moves over by at least its own diameter during the shot.

I wouldn't have guessed that the double-kiss-back-to-the-cushion shot was possible with a level stick. It's likelihood may depend on the cushion.

So, no beginner videos yet?

This last batch burned me out a little, so it will be a while before I do another like this. That gives you lots of time to watch the vids, maybe during the Olympics commercials.

I'm sorry to be such a burden posting so many videos. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

Do you think that there might have been ferrule contact?</div></div>Agreed. It is difficult to tell from the view in NV B.38 (http://billiards.colostate.edu/normal_videos/new/NVB-38.htm) and NV B.39 (http://billiards.colostate.edu/normal_videos/new/NVB-39.htm), but the amount of forward CB motion does look a little suspicious for the amount of cue elevation. In NV B.40 (http://billiards.colostate.edu/normal_videos/new/NVB-40.htm), judging from the motion of the CB, which doesn't seem to be altered, I would guess there is no secondary contact with that shot. The viewpoint is a little deceiving. The tip is slightly behind the ball with the bottom-left English.

HSV A.60 (http://billiards.colostate.edu/high_speed_videos/new/HSVA-60.htm) is an example where secondary contact with the ferrule or shaft is clear. If there were secondary contact, it wouldn't be considered a foul, would it? As with miscues, if secondary contact isn't visually clear (with normal vision, and not high-speed cameras), wouldn't a double hit be allowed. Do you agree?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Bob_Jewett</div><div class="ubbcode-body">It's clear that the shaft moves over by at least its own diameter during the shot.</div></div>Agreed.

With slick conditions and a draw shot, transferred spin on the object ball (top into the cushion, bottom out of the cushion) might be retained after rebound allowing it to return to the rail. For example, see "roll with slick conditions" in HSV B.15 (http://billiards.colostate.edu/high_speed_videos/new/HSVB-15.htm). Is this what you were thinking?

I would also think most people would be less interested, even if they might benefit more from fundamental stuff.

By "beginner" do you mean stuff like "grip," "stance," "bridge," and "stroke?" I have some basic stuff in my early NV clips, and I do plan to improve and expand on some of that in the future. What else do you think is needed that isn't available already?

Dave

Yes, that's exactly what I've been inquiring about, the fundamentals. If you can link me to whatever clips you have now, I will review and reply. Thanks

These clips are not as good as I would like them to be, but I plan to improve them (especially the stroke video) one of these days. What do you recommend beyond what I have already?

Thanks,
Dave

FYI, there were audio problems in most of videos originally posted. This has been fixed, so now you can hear the narration and commentary.

Enjoy,
