    I made a sightrite thingy with a folded piece of card and the broken straight line was only complete when I had my left or right eye looking right down it. I couldn't see a complete line somewhere between my eyes, it had to be bang on one eye or the other and as my left is my natural dominant eye the feet position for my stance is now the go to position when standing behind the shot, left foot just outside the line so my left eye is right on it; this way I don't turn into the stance as I'm already in the right position and I can drop straight down and the cue is on the complete line in the middle of the folded card.

    As with all sighting it was easy to turn it around with a square stance and different head position and see it with my right eye but the stance felt all wrong and totally unnatural even though I could pot balls that way.

    Will sight right help me throw plates and cutlery at the missus with more accuracy when my tea's late...?

    You do a hard days work, put your feet up, stick the TV on and wait for the snooker...................... and where's my tea..! Seriously. So if Mr Feeney is reading this, then please PM me and i'll pay, so long as you can guarantee my dinner is always in front of me when the snooker starts.

    Your vision centre then, which in my case is directly under my left eye.

    Anyone know what happened with the legal case between the various investors in sight right?

    I think I'm on the right track when I stand behind the shot with my feet in my stance position so that my dominant left eye is sighting down the line of aim and I then don't have to turn my body or head when I drop down into my stance, or is this completely wrong ?

    The truth is, there isn't much to it. Don't bother with sight rite cues, they were a complete gimmick really for anyone other than someone who has no natural feel whatsoever for the angle of the shot but still has a desire to play the game.

    The gist of sight rite is to stand behind the shot and sight the angle of the pot. As you will most likely not be standing in perfect position for the pot immediately the idea is you sight it then shuffle your feet slightly to get into the right position to get down on the shot.

    I think you can learn much by watching sight rite trained pro's like Kyren Wilson, Stuart Bingham, Mark Williams and of course Ronnie more recently. I'm not saying it's rubbish,far from it, but it is re instating good fundamentals to sighting an angle that many players including Ron have taken for granted due to the level of natural talent.

    Now if you decide to pay a Steve Feeney sight rite coach to tell you this and he divulges more information than this, we would all like to know.
    I had a session and ya it's not hugely complicated. The big part when I had my lesson was finding my vision centre or where my body position is for seeing a straight line. I think the cue is at least sort of helpful in that respect to find that standing position along with your vision centre, at least that was my experience. It definitely signaled to me that I just have a tendency to stand wherever and just find my way to the potting angle on the way down. It takes a lot of discipline to change up your pre-shot routine.

    Mr Feeney is a pretty shrewd business man, he patented sight rite and official training courses for coaches so they could be accredited sight rite trainers.

    Sound adice...it sounds painful until engrained so not for me, but great to watch some who are able to change their technique successfully.
    Cheers buddy

    I didn't go to Feeney mate so couldn't help u there. If your only wanting to enjoy it and have a game don't go near sightright, it'll just waste your head lol

    CC, I've started to practice again and when this happens I keep things very simple which includes life...
    Your answer however is premium, mine was just to the point

    NOTE:
    Watch Jimmy White at his peak and he'll teach anyone to sight right

    Not really for me as I just wish to enjoy the game and not endure hours of pain in the process.

    Out of interest, how much does Feeney charge? Ball park - I'm guessing he varies the fee - but just for sheer curiosity

    Yeah I tried it for about a year, I struggled with it tho and haven't done it for a while, it's very hard, I think doing it u gotta do it constant especially at the start which I couldn't do, I was maybe doing it once or twice a month which is nowhere near enough, guys working with Feeney will be doing it 5 days a week to begin with for hours and hours cause u gotta get it drilled in, I did see why it works and can see why the guys doing it pot the way they do and manage to pot some of the ridiculous balls that they do, definitely worthwhile if I can afford to do it the amount required but unless your serious about the game and trying to really do something at the game then I wouldn't recommend it cause it's hard and a lot of hard work involved

    Have you tried it Frazz? Does it work for you? Sounds interesting, especially if the likes of ROS can find value in it - a muppet like me would probably find it very useful!
