Stopping the cue ball “on a dime,” so to speak, for Any straight shot in the right spot Requires hitting on the cue ball with the right speed for a respective distance Between the cue ball and the object ball. Rule of thumb – stop for longer shots, one must hit the cue ball lower and / or Increase the speed applicable to the shot.

    @TheFairOH When playing pool you shouldn’t have to up or lower your power for a stop shot within 4 diamonds of distance. Please subscribe to my channel as I will be uploading a new video on Stop shots in the next week or so. I will show you how to calculate your tip location based on the diamond distance using the same stroke. not upping or lowering your power :)

    @manningcues You are the only person that agrees with me! i can’t make anything when i try this shot

    very good pool lessons!

    Measuring a stop shot can be done using the diamonds. You don’t have to increase or decrease you power. Using the diamonds to measure distance can determine tip location. This can also be used for calculating shape ahead and back. increasing you speed and power can easily cause you to miss your stop shot as you will not have a consistent stroke. This video is informative however, I would not recommend learning this technique as it will cause inconsistencies.

    I think it’s important to know how/why the cue ball stops. It MUST be sliding when it makes contact. If it’s spinning or rolling you wont get a true stop. Practicing with a stripe if you don’t have the fancy cue ball in this video will help animate the effect. I hope this helps someone because this is one of the most important shots in the game.

    This is a good explanation of a stop shot showing the difference of how distance effects how hard and low you have to hit the cue to stop it. Different cloth and how clean the cloth is has a big effect on this shot. You have to adjust to different table conditions.

    i hate these people who always have somethin smart to say bout these pool videos..got news for you, fucc off! go criticize yo own self

    @dorismash1 What you did was a drag shot; the cueball skids for a while and then it picks up forward roll before contact with the object ball, thus causing the cueball to have the same effects as follow. To achieve stop, you have to make sure the cueball is sliding when making contact.

    And like you said, it was a long shot: the longer the shot, the more speed you need and the lower you need to cue to achieve stop. Also a good follow through stroke helps.

    Great video! But I still need to know what I’m doing wrong, that when I make a long stop shot, after the cue hits my object ball, it stops spinning backward and starts rolling forward following the object ball (which has caused me to scratch on the 8, like too many times to count).

    Great video…I really needed this. Awesome exercise.
    I just realised this video was uploaded the day Heath Ledger died…aww man. Coincidence sucks.

    Thanks :P

    There are other aspects to consider as well. A properly shaped cue tip and chalking before each shot is important to avoid a mis-cue. If the tip is too “flat” then when using english, only the outside edge of the tip will contact the cue ball, increasing the likelyhood that you’ll mis-cue. Make sure to use proper tools when shaping a tip, so that any shaping you do will be uniform all the way around the tip. Remember to chalk before each shot. And most importantly, don’t give up! :)

    Actually, it’s not the spin that stops it but a lack of spin.

    When you hit the center the cue ball, it actually slides across the felt with no spin until friction takes over and makes it start rolling forward.

    When you stop a ball, the goal is to make the cue ball contact the object while it’s still sliding. Then the cue ball transfers all it’s energy to the object ball, and the cue ball stops.

    the lower i hit the cue. it just bounces over the ball im trying to hit depending on how close it is lol

  20. milsumla on August 13, 2011 at 5:08 am

    wow, now im going to practice stop shotting like this instead of stop shotting at dead center

    more skills, and stop shots at every angle lol

  21. MarkMayrProductions on August 13, 2011 at 5:55 am

    im not sure,
    but i think its because the backwards spinning counter-reacts to the ball moving forward, therefore meeting at a mid-point. u know wat i mean?
    that why everytime he adjusts the speed and placement so they match eachother just enough to stop.

  22. aznelf13 on August 13, 2011 at 6:31 am

    it’s not exactly a ful backspin, it’s like half way, so when it hit the object ball, it loses the backspin and stops in place

  23. nikeisgolf on August 13, 2011 at 6:57 am

    the lower the hit on the cue ball the more backwards spin it gets

  24. wiiwouldntliketoplay on August 13, 2011 at 7:34 am

    No, because you put just enough reverse english on it that when you hit it the ball stops, but you also have to hit it hard enough that without reverse english after the cue ball hits the objective ball (aka the ball your trying to hit in.) that it would normally keep going forward.

  25. hibikino on August 13, 2011 at 8:12 am

    he’s not putting any more spin on the ball than is necessary to stop it.
