Humm, Joey I guess he assumes we all need a straight stroke! Have you ordered one yet? LOL I view it like this. If you hit a c/b with the tollerance given on that board it is still not near accurate enough. There is probably at least a tip of english from side to side variance. I know it's just to train. Buy a long neck beer, drink it of course and use that. How would McCready handle that gizmo? I need to invent something, as they say, there is a sucker, well you know the rest.

I haven't. It might have some use.
I like the real test. Kinnister's shot number one.

Joey,
What is that shot, since I don't have the book, tape or what ever it is? I'm sure I've shot the shot many times, just curious.

Shoot the ball in, cueball REPLACES the ob. It has to roll half a ball after contact and replace the ball.
Bert says you have to shoot this shot a hundred times a week if you are not a great player yet.

I was taught the same shot except it was just a stop shot. The instructor that showed it to me has a fair number of Bert's tapes, I think. Here's another one. The 9 ball is actually showing a 2nd cueball location. Shoot both of these as a stop shot, first A then B. The cueball should move no more than 1/4". After that, shoot both as a draw shot, drawing the cueball as close as possible to position A.

I was taught to practise this shot.

First shooting it with center ball for a stop shot. Keep shooting it like that until you reach a high percentage..(8 of 10) maybe?

Second work the same shot using a draw stroke..Once again, keep shooting until you achieve a high percentage..

Third work the same shot using a follow stroke...Once again, keep shooting until you achieve a high percentage..

Last, if you are successful at the top 3 shots, then try to incorporate left or right english, using the same procedure.

Its a pretty tuff shot to get consistent on a 9',,,you will definately begin to understand the need for the perfect stroke..

&lt;--still workin the left ta right!

Perk, Bert does this shot in his video. He uses a barbox though.
