    Came across this article. What do you think of this aiming method?

    source: http://www.saluc.com/html/billiard-e...ker_system.pdf
    http://www.pool-tools.com/blog/

    In the 1960’s I read a book by Willie Mosconi that described an aiming system that used a paralell line thru the cue that was paralell to the line through the object ball to the center of the pocket. The idea was to align the opposite point of the cue ball to the aim point on the object ball and you would have to pocket the object ball if these two contact points met. Over the years I would use this method on long shots or difficult cut shots. It was uncanny that I would make these difficult shots a high percentage of the time.

    In 2008 I adopted this aiming method for almost all shots. My pocket making ability jumped significantly. However it is difficult sometimes to visualize these lines. I discoverd Mike Massey’s and Joe Tucker’s ”Aiming by the Numbers” training aids. Mike and Joe have assigned numbers on the cue and object balls. The number is derived from the object balls position relative to the pocket to be pocketed. You aim or match the number on the cue ball to the object and shoot.

    It is second nature for me now to walk around the table and select the numbers and execute the shot with confidence. In addition, you can use the numbers when object ball is stuck on the side rail and you want to place the object ball at center of end rail to nail a safety play.

    I walk around with the discs in my pocket included in the “aiming by the numbers” package so I can practice pool anywhere at anytime.

    the point is how would you visualize the "numbers" on white ball and target ball. How would you make sure that the number on cue ball "meets" the number on the target ball. Compared to "the ghost ball" method, this sounds good but ain't easy in practice.

    This guide is only useful if you hit the ball right at the centre. if it is spin, this method may not be useful.

    This is a guide for learning. it is not practical to draw on the table.
