This short slow-mo video demonstrates three key things you need to
This video was taken on a lesson with top snooker coach Brian Cox and shows you the potential spin you can get by going through the ball and having a long backswing consistently on every shot.
Long or Short?
- It offers consistency if you do it on every shot
- You can control the power in the shot and have time to look at the object ball before delivering!
- You can create a pendulum motion in your cue action and the long swing will naturally open the three back fingers!
To get through the ball you need to go through all the way to the chest to complete the shot so that the cue arm goes forward of the vertical! Your cue arm starts vertical, and then ends forward of the vertical!
Keep your head still. Pull the cue back in a consistent and controlled manner and follow through! And finally, relax the grip. Having a longer backswing will ensure this by opening the three fingers naturally on the cue!
And that’s it! Once you can do that consistently on every shot, then the world is your oyster and it’s up to you to remember to be consistent!
