    SnookerZone did a video to illustrate just how good these tips are from Steve and here's a short video of me practicing cue power...

    Firstly Chris, that looks excellent. Some lovely shots there. Getting through the ball nicely and getting lots of reaction out of the white.

    Secondly, thank you for supporting the videos I'm making and all the positive comments you've made. It really is much appreciated.

    This was in my head today while I was practising (first time in months) Are you in the "get that cue moving" camp of having a long action on every shot, or just pull it out the bag when you have to?

    P.S What's the name of that coach that liked a long cue action? He always gets mentioned when Anthony Hamilton is on TV, coached Stephen Hendry. I'm quite sure he's dead. RIP

    I wouldn't have a 'long action' on every shot. You can feather how you want. The amount you then pull the cue back, is determined by the power of shot you require.

    If you're dropping a red, I don't have a long action for that, and my feathers would match the 'feel' for that shot. But if I'm playing a black screwing back off the cushion like in my video, I will use a long backswing to generate the speed and spin on the white with much less effort. Also, as I say in the video, this helps to keep the muscles in the arms and shoulders relaxed. The more relaxed you can remain, the more the cue will stay online.

    The coach you're referring to is Frank Callan...I think...

    I agree with Steve here, although, if you watch Higgins and Selby and I maybe wrong but they seem to have a long (ish) cue action for most shots?

    yep, always noticed Higgins nearly going off the back of his V he pulls back so much


    Steve, many thanks for the videos; played last night and thought of this video when I needed that 'little bit more' and I got some superb reactions that were noted by some player-friends on the other table
    cheers
    Up the TSF!

    i have been told to keep the long back swing and vary the speed of delivery for different shots. it stops jabbing and encourages a smoother delivery.
    this is what i do rather than changing the length of back swing
