    Thanks for making me laugh!!

    I still don't know why I was so low on the ball when it only needed to come back a little. Got confused with my h1 to 10's.

    apart from you moving on to the lineup i recmended, a few things you might like to try.
    -slow the back swing down. then when your ready to go stay with the cue all the way though to the chest. close the back of the hand on shot completion. stay with the shot till the ob reaches its target hit or miss
    -try getting a bit lower to the table with your cue, jack down a little
    .
    Yeah I certainly won't disagree with your comments as I think you're spot on.

    I sometimes get to the pause and then it's like cutting an elastic band. I struggle with the slow start and then accelerate finishing with the hand on the chest.

    I'm back on Thursday for the afternoon so I'll try a little warm up and see how I get on in the practice session. I'm continually working on things, maybe you could lend me your arm.......

    which one?
    .
    i think if you just do the slow back swing and stay with the shot 'from beginning to end' these pauses will come, as you find your own tempo to every ball you play

    Sorry, the second pause, then struggle with acceleration.

    Out of interest, what are your eyes looking at on your 1st pause in the video prior to pulling the cue back?

    Sighting sounds good to me and no shocks thank God..

    Yeah, the Tuca looks good and I think would help me as don't live that close to the club.

    I'll keep an eye for it's progress.

    Thanks for all your help.
