What is the best tip for achieving draw English?
I bet I get this question 2 or 3 times a week, usually from beginner or novice players, but that’s fine,
I’m happy to give my take. Is it LePro, Tiger, Elk Master, or maybe Moori? No, my answer is always
The same, the best tips for getting draw English are located on the ends of your fingers. It is developing
a good stroke that will help you master reverse English. Don’t grip the pool cue too tightly, nice and loose,
good follow through is essential, and practice, practice, practice. You can experiment with different tips until you find one you like, but the real key is in a solid stroke, don’t obsess about the tip and your results being too closely related.
Now that you’ve mastered draw English, stop using it so much. I know the rush you feel when you yank
the cue ball back like it’s on a string, but honestly it is too difficult to control ball speed with reverse English and one often gets into trouble. You should play position with high or follow English whenever
possible, you’ll have much better luck judging the speed of the table and be much more accurate. Draw
English can also throw the object ball off and actually cause you to miss shots. I realize there will be times
where reverse English will be a must, so you definitely need it in your arsenal, just don’t over do it. Now
you know my tips on tips, thanks for reading.
