Replacing cb with ob

Postby Practice8 on Mon Dec 17, 2007 5:55 pm

What is the best way to replace the cb with the ob. I don't want to stop the cb, I want in the exact spot the ob was.
Alot of times if you just stop the cb, your out of line on the next shot.[/WEI]
I also tried to enter a diagram, but not sure if I saved it.

If someone can explain how you save the diagram, I'll post it. But the question is pretty straight forward.
I clicked on the wei button, pool table came up, clicked to activate, put balls in position then couldn't figure out what to do next as to saving it to the post.
Help would be appreciated.
Thanks

There are a couple ways to replace the object ball with the cue ball on a straight in shot. If the object ball is close to the pocket (within 2.5 foot) it is fairly easy to do by rolling the cue ball with just enough force to bump the OB into the pocket. The cue ball will have just enough roll left to roll onto the spot occupied by the OB. At just slightly longer distance (up to a 1 foot more) you can shoot low and soft on the CB (don't draw it just let it roll) which will kill some of the CB roll but still have sufficient force to bump the OB in and replace it. The other method is to shoot a stop shot with the cue tip very slightly above center which let the cue ball roll just a little depending on high above center the tip hits. Needless to say both methods require a good sense of touch to execute.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CREATING POOL TABLE DIAGRAMS USING WEI (CUETABLE) TOOL.

1) click on the WEI button. A new window pops up with the WEI program in it.
2) Draw your table layout in the WEI program

THE FOLLOWING STEPS ARE WHAT YOU ARE MISSING

3) Click on the "Export data" button on the WEI program to copy the WEI code into your clipboard.
4) Close the window where the WEI program is. You should now be back on your forum post.
5) Paste the WEI code that you copied on your clipboard after the [WEI] bbcode.
6) Click the WEI button again to close the [WEI] bbcode.

Here's an example of what you should have between the [WEI] and [/WEI] bbcodes:

Hope this helps.

true if you hit soft with low the cb will roll forward but its almost guaranteed to go at least two inches. the shot here is centerball with medium speed. getting the cb to stop exactly on the ob position is one of the harder shots to execute.
