You are here :   HomePage » Follow shot
The follow shots are used to make the cue ball rolling ahead.
For that, we position the tip on the high part of the cue ball:
hand

THE GESTURE

The gesture must be slow.
If we want to advance more, the gesture will be slow again and we put our hand at the end of the cue.

STANDARD DIRECTIONS

Full aim:

We aim on the center of the 2nd ball.



The deviation is 0 ° ( Straight on )

Aiming 1/2 ball:

We aim at 1 radius from the center of the 2nd ball



The deviation is 37° compared to the axis of the cue



Aiming from 1/3 to 3/4 ball:

The final deviation is the practically the same when aiming 1/2 ball

ANY DIRECTION

This is a method for any direction with a follow shot:

* to draw a line from where we want to go and the center of the played ball
* to aim the imaginary point located at the intersection of this line with the back part of the the played ball circumference's

Here is a diagram illustrating these remarks:



This is illustrated in the following video:
