Low cue sighting: why do some players do this?


Low cue sighting: why do some players do this?

Why do a lot of pro pool players sight with the cue stick very low (if not on the table) before shooting--even if they don't actually hit the cue ball low? Does this help in aiming somehow, or is this just a personal preference (for example: Earl Strickland, Bustamante, and Wu Cia Ching)?

    Personal preference. They have found what works best for them and many other have done the same.

    Notice that these pros place the very top of the cue tip at the very center of the cue ball at address. Thus getting the aim they want.

    They then go on and make the spin adjustment natually without doing much thinking about the stroke and such--because they have hit that shot 1M times before.
