Dear struggling potter friends…
RE: Your increased confidence in potting starts now!
Imagine this scenario…
You’re in an important league match and your team are relying on you. You’re the last player to take to the table and your opponent is known to be a high scorer. You’re shaking like a leaf. You’re profusely sweating underneath that waistcoat as you break off for the final match.
The first frame doesn’t go your way – and your opponent got in and cleared with a 50 plus break. You, however, calm down in the second and you knock them in off the lampshades. Your opponent doesn’t know what hit him. You take the third but he comes back at you in the fourth! It’s 2 – 2, and it’s the final frame, and he’s at the table. You’re sure he will clear from here, you think to yourself.
But, shock! He misses. He bangs the cue down as you approach the table. He’s left you a nice easy starter. Your opponent’s still fuming in his seat mouthing his fury at missing. You focus. He’s thinking, will you miss? No! You end up clearing coolly up and potting the final red that leaves him needing two snookers! He tries to get them but you can see he’s gone! You win!
You can see your mates are celebrating the win in the bar. Your team is through to the semi-finals of the League, a first for two years. Your opponent shakes your hand and nods in appreciation.
You get to the bar and a pint is waiting for you. Your mates are in glory over the win! One asks: “You’ve been potting them off the lampshades recently! What’s been going on?” Your reply: “You know what, here’s the secret…”
You show them all this…

What is the Ghost Ball Potting Aid?
This pocket-sized simple tool is the size of a playing card and is based on the ghost ball theory in snooker.
What is a Ghost Ball?
A ghost ball is an imaginary ball in front of the object ball and a player must hit that ball at a certain point on the ghost ball for the object ball to go where they want it! In the pocket! The Ghost Ball Potting Aid is based on this theory.
Watch this video, as Six Times World Champion Steve Davis explains the Ghost Ball!
How it Works: 2 Easy Steps
The tool is simple: On the card, there is a red area.
- Place the object ball on top of the red area on the card leaving the circle area on the card as the imaginary ghost ball.
- Then place the cue ball anywhere at an angle where you want and strike the cue ball into the target area of the circle. The ball will then go into the pocket (or should do)
It all comes down to how you cue the shot.
Most training aids require you to have a good solid cue action first, so it is important to work on that aspect of your game too!
Ghost Ball Potting Aid: Four Advantages

2) It’s small and lightweight. Because it is the size of a playing card, you can stick this tool in your pocket, your snooker cue case, or your ball case. You can carry it around while you travel and then when you feel like practising with it, whip it out!
3) Easy to set up. There’s no complicated gadgets or software devices or anything like that with this tool. It’s a good old-fashioned training tool which you need no technical skills to get it to work!
4) This tool gives beginners like you the confidence to pot balls so you can move on quickly to practising other parts of your game such as break-building! You’ll feel more confident once you’ve had a few sessions with the Ghost Ball Potting Aid!
Who is Rob Reed?
Rob Reed (pictured) is a WPBSA coach (see SnookerZone’s interview with him here) who have used the product for a few years with his private students and it has helped many boost their potting skills. He also has a business making bespoke Cue Cases and has created products for top players such as Dominic Dale.

Ghost Ball Potting Aid: Exclusive Review
I took this product for a whirl over the weekend, and impressed with its simplicity (click to see video below). Once I got into it, I potted balls freely and at one point even forgot I was using it!
SnookerZone said: This product gets you to train your eyes to understand where on the object ball you need to hit to pot the ball!
This was useful with long potting! The Ghost Ball Potting Aid also teaches you the specific area near the object ball where the cue ball will meet for the ball to go in the desired direction you want.
What’s Better? Nic Barrow’s Aim Frame or Rob Reed’s Ghost Ball Potting Aid?
Although Rob Reed’s product isn’t as detailed as the Aim Frame, it is much simpler to understand at first and easier to set up (initially). However, the Aim Frame has much more detail on the four most important angles in snooker you need to understand recognising those angles on a snooker table.
If former World Champions are using it and loving, then you can too!
