Here's most of the setup
The cue ball and 1 ball are aligned to the long rail point of the corner pocket . So they aren't both 1 ball width off the rail, the 1 ball is actually a little bit closer.
The 5 ball is on a coin wrapper, centered about a 1/2 ball width off the point of the long rail . Just make sure it has enough room to drop and not catch the top of the rail.
I aim about 3/4 on the front face of the 1 ball, hitting max 1:30 o'clock on the cue ball. I use lots of elevation too. Normally I start in my regular, level cue stance, find my aim point, elevate first without taking a step, and then take one step in. Spin the cue ball really good to get the full curve effect.
Mike Massey says this shot was shown to him by Edgar Nichols. Check out how much spin is on the cue ball at the end!
