...your stroke when it is perfectly executed.
I've been hitting with various shafts this morning on the home table, one with a factory Lepro that is optimal in hardness(IMO.) Then there is the single layered WB that still sings when it hits it's target, sweetly sliding the OB down a long rail causing the CB to drift perfectly in line for the next shot. The final ingredient for me is the crisp sound of the tip coming off of the CB. I know for a fact that not all players like this, Spiderman for instance can install a new experimental tip and make every ball he shoots at, BUT if the tip "talks" too loud, he's bothered to the extent that it must be cut off and replaced. I'm not criticizing SM, others here have expressed a negative opinion in the past about the same thing. I for one, lose the total appreciation I get once that crisp sound is not heard, and if it were to be totally removed I'd enjoy pool much less. The thing it does today, coupled with the appealing nature it gives me, is that it tells me I am stroking exactly the way I should be for my optimal game. Can I get a renewed head count on those here who like or dislike a tip with a voice of it's own???sid
