    I'm a poor player but I think there's no substitute for going down the club and committing to solo practice. Vary your routines and try to learn from the balls you miss, think about why you missed. Set yourself goals, try to beat your highest line up break, or improve in the t exercise. How many times out of ten can you clear the colours. Keep a diary and measure your progress.

    If anyone wants a set of routines, I can send them. I'm going down the club today or tomorrow for a couple of hours practice. My problem is I haven't been dedicated enough but I'm determined to improve and beat my highest break of only 36.

    This is for working out the angles is it not, it will do nothing for your cue action, that's down to you.

    It is, but you are implying that all you have to do is look at it and things will happen automatically which I don't believe to be the case. Otherwise we'd all be potting them off the lampshades with minimal effort.

    Correct. There are many elements to be able to play snooker. Rob has never said this will solve all of them. And in fact has said that a decent cue action is required to be able to do this part of the game; potting. This is just to visualise and see where the cue ball needs to hit the object ball for it to go in a certain direction. It won't be for everyone and the target market is certainly not for pro's or amateur players. If you have a look on his website, it has been reviewed by many coaches and they have said how great it is. As per any training aid, it won't fix everything, it won't make you pro, it is used for a small part of your game and you need to put the practice hours in. There is no easy fix in anything; practice is required. This (and many other tools) just help some people. And if it helps just one person, then that's good for the sport.

    How one reads certain posts is subconsciously biased to ones own misunderstanding of ones own shortcomings. If you're not seeing the angle or the line of aim then you're not looking at the proper targets, work that out first before employing some alledged potting aid.
    None of these contraptions work or we'd all be buying one and potting them off the lampshades.

    What exactly is it I have to look at then. Because tbh I could stand and stare for hours at a certain shot and still wouldn't get it. And please don't say just the contact point because I seriously doubt anyone can see the exact point on a fine cut across the length of the table

    You've grossly misunderstood the reason for the aid then. Shame. Maybe see the product first before having an opinion? This helps people see the angle - to some it doesn't come naturally as they are visual learners. It doesn't pot for you. But thanks for your input.
    I've just had a look on the website and it's had many professionals say great things about it - but let's just ignore the professional coaches and use guess work to figure it out.

    Ok vmax you win. Went to the club tonight and did as you said. After all what's the point having an argument if you don't try to see the other persons point of view, right? I made a conscious effort of focusing on the object ball and let my body get onto the line of aim by feel alone never taking my eyes of the object ball. Not a particular point, just the whole ball. When I felt happy I made sure I went down nice and straight never taking my eyes of until I was fully in position. A quick check to make sure I hit centre ball and focus straight back at the object ball. Cut a long story short, I beat two players who would normally wipe the floor with me. So thanks mate

    The potting aid shows you that. Some pots you certainly won't need it as it's obvious but it visually shows you a system for where to play the cue ball to. As mentioned before, it's really useful as a training aid to help your game (and it will). The more you use it the less you'll need to use it because it will then become natural. What it WILL do is make you more consistent.

    Hello everyone.

    Thank you for the thread (for a product that isn't even on the market yet!)

    I have read through and appreciate all the feedback! I would love full feedback from vmax and rimmer10 if you would like to try it out?
    Send me your address to sales@rrcuecases.com and I'll send you one of the prototypes that the coaches received (FREE of course).

    I fear that there is a misunderstanding for the use of this tool so I'll be doing some short videos explaining it fully in the coming weeks.
    There is also a bit of the unknown, so hopefully with more people trying it out and some explanation videos, that will make it clearer whether you would benefit from the tool or not. I would suggest anyone who struggles with consistency would do well to spend just a few pounds on getting one.

    Any questions on anything, please just email me rrcuecases.com

    Keep well and keep playing everyone!

    Rob Reed
