    Default Sidespin on a snooker table both with and against the nap

    I don't think anyone quite gets what I'm trying to demonstrate on it.

    I was not swerving the OB that's for sure.

    I'll make another one tomorrow and explain better

    Well, I thought you said you were attempting to curl the pink around the red to pot it but only 2mm or so at best. I just tried this with a spotted CB and couldn't get any type of spin on the OB and no curl. I tried 5 times on each side of the red and I set up the red so I didn't have any pocket at all just to see if I could get the pink a little closer to centre pocket.

    No way Jose. The spots on the OB hardly turned at all, at best 1/8th turn (if that) and it went absolutely straight with no curl. Do you have an old set of balls where you could use a felt tip marker (not indelible) to mark a ball like pink or yellow? It will wipe off easily with a damp cloth or even some spit.

    Then get some sticky tape and put a dab of the sticky backing on the OB and try that too. Might see more effect with that so if you play in a tourney carry some sticky stuff and tell the referee you're going to 'clean' the OB.

    I get what your trying to say now by aiming wider and throwing the OB on a slightly different line. I'll give it a go tomorrow, but I have my doubts that it'll work

    I don't get the same bite with soft tips at all, hate them with a passion!

    Cracking efforts here to try and get to the bottom of this issue. Great stuff Pottr enjoyed watching the vids. Slo Mo with pool stripes or training spot ball might just close the deal. This deserves TV quality camera status in my opinion now. Anyone listening on the BBC ? 😀
    No cheap shots...well maybe the odd one if its funny...

    Strike a light - terrible so far!
    Nothing's ever depressed me more than that Biggie, this don't come close. I did have slight concern that he doth protest too much on "it definitely doesn't pot" and that may have hindered his case in the long run. More work to do!

    Maybe an idea to use something heavy that won't be moved to prove that the ball doesn't pot, a can of beans or something. A can of worms?

    Not practical. Les lives over 2hrs away plus he is now doing 2 jobs, building custom homes and selling real estate which of course makes his weekends his busiest days. I think he's also golfing. I would hate to send him extra work and I know he's very busy.

    Les has resigned from our Association although he will still run the website.

    oddly, my explanation on tbe video is similar to what you just say.

    A combination of the nap and perhaps generating a small kick of sorts.

    saying you can't put spin on the ob isn't true... we have all had balls kick which deviate massively
    I've found they slide more than spin or the cueball 'climbs' the OB which I think is static electricity between a neutral OB and a charged CB.

    Tomorrow I'm going to put some chalk on my OB and see what happens.

    LETS CRACK THIS TOGETHER!
    We would only end up arguing about what's happening. If you can get an OB to spin fast enough to alter its course, even with a kick, I'll come over. That chalk thing I mentioned should do it but of course that's cheating. I think SIT and some minor amount of transferred spin is more likely in pool with more dense balls but I'm sure BS can set us straight.
