Spot on. Though I disagree with Terry about weight of cue. If you can accelerate a heavier cue at the same pace as a light cue, and go through the ball the same amount, you will achieve more spin with a heavier cue. The heavier cue has more mass, and F=MA. More force, more spin. But the difference between the 16oz and the 19.25oz I play with now has meant I can hit the ball harder and achieve more spin ceteris parabus. Some folk believe a soft tip grips the ball more and imparts more spin. I'm with Terry on this one. They offer more feel yes, more spin, no.

Harder than you think is a beautiful thing.
