    It doesn't take a lot of pressure on the shaft to bend it. When I'm making a cue and need to look down the shaft to check for straightness, if I have the tip end touching the bench it will have a slight bend in it until I raise it off the bench into the air.
    You're all reading too much into this as a technique when it's simply a by product of chin contact on cue.

    There's more to it than that. Try it yourself and you'll see

    I’ll sum it up in one word, this word should actually be a disclaimer on all coaches resumes “Placebo”

    I tried it solid for over an hour. Nothing placebo about it. I found it hard to get it right but when i did my delivery was nothing like ever before. It felt like the cue delivered itself and the accuracy was nothing like I ever experienced before. Believe me or don't believe me.It's fine by me. Life goes on☺

    That's great if it helped you better deliver the tip to the intended point on the CB, just don't expect it to actually have any effect on the CB reaction.
    Anything that helps you achieve this goal is right for you and should be encouraged provided it is a repeatable and consistent method, there is no right way and many new players waste their time by focusing on things that do not matter.

    Wise words Slasher and I agree with you 100 per cent. And to be honest i wasnt screwing back like Ronnie all of a sudden. The real difference was that the white actually went where I intended it to go and my potting accuracy was amazing for my standards anyway.

    Hihi:-) if you hold your cue same for each shot it will develop into a banana soon :-)

    You not going to improve much if you haven't noticed that the cue bends like this for every single player that has a chin contact. If you are one then it was bending for you too. I would love to see the bow you have now. Hehe:-)
