    Well its on his cue so technically I suppose he is. Either way, you can't deny its a great thing for Feeney and Sightright because what better way to endorse a product than the World Championship finalist and potentially winner 2015. They will undoubtedly put his success down to sightright and you know that many gullible people will buy into anything if they believe it will make them a better player.

    Good time to give this thread a bump. Steve Feeney must be rubbing his hands together, I get the feeling he is going to market this to its fullest off the back of Bingham's performance at the WC.

    Could these cues become a major seller now, I can imagine quite a few will jump on the bandwagon. Especially if they come fitted with patented Ballrun technology!!!

    Sorry I kind of miss lead you..LOL it is actually called Cue Action Recorder. This really helps when you are not following through and taking a stab at it instead. The first time I tried it at Terry's it showed my cue tip strike the cue ball then instead of this nice long follow through and holding it my tip actually returned back to almost the V in my bridge and I wonder why I struggle to pot balls and miss cue when I try to screw back. I have provided a link to the infor.

I have a 360 here for my students and started using it on the advice of Nic Barrow and I found it really helped to stop me from gripping my cue too tight and too early. When you use it you have to keep the grip relaxed and now I've gotten to the point where I can pot a long blue and screw back about 2ft (however can do 6ft with my own cue).

    When I first started using it when I tried a long blue with deep screw and a lot of power I couldn't even hit the cueball! Give it a try if you can get your hands on one. I can remember Dominic Dale trying one out at the SWSA and to him it played like a normal cue so I don't think he has any problems with his grip or his stroke (after me trying it out with little success for about 20 shots and then have Dominic come along an pot any long straight shot on the table was very humbling for me).
    Good Morning Terry. I remember the first time I came up to your place for coaching, you put 10 balls in front of me and said pot these long blues and I potted 7/10 then you gave me the 360 cue and I had no trouble with it either. Next time I am up which I hope is next week I want to try the 360 again and possibly the wrist band stroke analysis as I still find myself stabbing at the CB something my last table brought on. That tentavie I am going to miss shot with a big steer. Kind of like when you stand on a long par 5 with bush down the right and water down the left and you try to steer the ball out there instead of letting the driver take its natural path.

    I still can't see the purpose of this and I'm going to ask Cliff to show me when I see him next. It must be that you have to lay your cue on the line of aim when you are standing behind the shot and at that time if you see a solid line then your head is correctly on the line of aim. Now it's up to the player to ensure he drops the head straight down over the cue.

    Since I am not of the school that the cue should be placed on the table while standing up behind the shot I can't agree with this training device. I think there would be more improvement if players were taught to select the line of aim while standing up and then ensure they dropped straight down on that chosen line of aim. I can't see this device helping and besides their most expensive model is 600GBP and the craftsmanship sucks!

The list of snooker players currently endorsing the technology include Stuart Bingham, Jimmy White, Martin Gould, Barry Pinches, Rory McLeod and 10 times lady world champion Reanne Evans. I'm going to try a laser guided cue ball!

    kind of agree as I did get mine when I near enough first picked up a cue or at least within the first few months IIRC,but if you grip too tight, or close it too soon or twist or dip the cue by putting pressure in any direction with the grip during the stroke it will break the spring, so it encourages a light touch and a gradual acceleration to avoid the spring breaking, personally I can pot the pink into a bottom bag and screw back up past the middle bag ,on a very slow table, with mine( saying that I haven't used it for ages).
    I would say it's not for everyone, but out of all the gizmos out there that say they help but don't really , this one does.Two things I would like to add, first when I reread my post it could be read that I was potting the pink from baulk, I wish lol, the pot was only from say three feet away into the bottom bag and screwing back up past the middle bag, and the second is another good thing this cue does is it forces you to open your grip on the way back and this helps keep it on a level plane, if you don't and pull the cue up and into your chest too much it will break the spring.
