This is Rod's tag line:

<font color="blue">be smooth, better control, more power, with less effort.</font color>

This is probably the best advice I've read on this board. My BCA instructor tried to drill this into our heads, but seeing it here has reinforced it. This has won at least a few matches for me. Just Monday night I had a thick cut down table into the corner and I needed to follow to the short rail and back out to the center of the table. I stroked it smooth with a good follow-thru and got perfect position. Later on I had to draw back between 14 and 18 inches to get position on the match ball. I stroked it smooth with a good follow-thru and drew back 16 inches.

Thanks Rod.

So there's not enough o's in smooth to describe you now eh Wally? lol

Yes i'm with you on that one buddy. I used to tighten up on the money ball and stab at it. You know right away when you do it too, but by then it's too late. Now when i have to cut down a tester, or cinch a ball, it's a long, smooth stroke that's been getting it done. Great advice that. "thanks" from me too Rod. St

Okay, Rod, I'll jump on this bandwagon too. I regularly use this tag line while playing, particularly on the tough shots that require the smooth, powerful stroke - like the follow shot and the draw shot described by Wally. I don't always get the saying exactly right in my head, but I'm close enough to make it count.

If you ever change your tag line, I'll be lost!

Hi Stretch,
It's a wonder anyone could be smooth in that blizzard country of yours. I'd be shaking everywhere. They would call me Shakey. Don't know how you people handle it, I'd need more antifreeze!
