    The technique might not be as recognised but you can generate spin with a short follow through - a few inches - Mark Allen here for example is more jabby.

    Still, you're good at googling. Have you spent a couple of minutes finding where I've 'admitted to have never even played snooker'?

    You know, 'for other people's information' and that. I would hate to think you're trolling or deliberately misleading people.


    What about the 9 ball pros you watch ? Do they not have long follow through ?

    Without going on YouTube to check . I think from memory Shane , Earl , Shaw etc all have long follow through .

    Must be a reason for them to use it too

    He has a shortish backswing sometimes and a fast swing,not a short follow through, it looks around four inches or a bit more, how much do you need? Looks like he gets through the ball very well, just cues quickly.
    This is how you play darts ,MVG two nines in the same match!

    Big Shot is right, from a Physical point of view, but wrong on a biological one. If you were a robot you wouldn't need to follow through the ball, or even build speed up in your delivery, but you're not a robot.

    Hi J, do you have a link of you playing where you only follow through two inches past contact on the cueball, except on soft shots of course, I have always thought you had a standard follow through of between four and six inches on most shots.

    that would be two inches after the white so, after contact with the cb being roughly 2" thats four in total. then on power you could be looking at 6.
    i think m doing this more often than not if im not dropping the elbow, but i may have a vid somewhere.

    anyway this guy creates a lot of pace with little follow through

    I'm glad you watched and enjoyed it. I was hoping to waste some of your time like you constantly do to others.

    No I totally agree with that, that's exactly what I see you do, for me that's just about perfect for over ninety percent of shots, maybe more.

    Trump could do that to pretty much every snooker player in the world on his day.
