The Acuerate® cue technology is a result of over 25 years of dedication towards the in-depth analysis of snooker from a playing and coaching perspective. The inventor of the Acuerate® cue technology is Master Coach Chris Henry, coach to the 7 times World Professional Champion Stephen Hendry and former coach to Ding Junhui, World Professional Champion Peter Ebdon, Jimmy White and many other top players from around the world.
Chris has identified the major problems experienced by players at all levels. The biggest challenge for players is to consistently strike the cue ball in a straight line. All players apply un-intentional side spin to the cue ball causing it to deflect from the line of aim resulting in missed shots. Following years of experimentation, Chris has successfully identified the critical cue dimensions, wood densities and other specifications that directly causes differing degrees of cue ball deflection.
Based on this research, the patented Acuerate® LD ( Low Deflection ) and ULD ( Ultra Low Deflection ) cue technology has been developed to control cue ball deflection caused by the application of intentional and un-intentional side spin. This results in a player not being required to get used to a cue but rather the cue coordinating with the aiming and technique of the player immediately.
Technological advances are being experienced at a rapid rate in sports such as Golf and Tennis and the Acuerate® cue technology is an exciting break through for the world of billiard sports.
