    Gotcha and no coach would ever recommend a see-saw cue action but that comes from his bridge a lot, loop bridge and how low he doesn't go, no chin on cue for this fella. However, he's foot in line which proves that snooker tips do work for potting in general. The lady in the video posted earlier is ankle on shot, toes pointing out to the right, all wrong! She makes it work, but loses cue power IMO from this stance. And her cue action doesn't look dead straight or reliable. Yes, I am saying that power and accuracy comes from alignment. Most Americans haven't got a clue.

    hi guys,it's been a while since i posted this thread,the last few months i've worked really hard on my cue action,i have taken all the advice here and i think i finally fixed the cue going offline,i think my problem was that my back arm was a bit too far back and not vertical in the address position and i wasn't unfurling my fingers which both caused a bit of tension in my upper arm and the cue going a bit up and down and not parallel with the table.but i'm not sure if i've fixed it yet so i've posted a video cueing on the kitchen table,is this a straight cue action?i'm not using the chest as a guide in the video.
