How much deflection does a cue of given pivot length produce?

from Patrick Johnson: MEASURING PIVOT LENGTH: A shaft’s pivot length is the distance the CB travels to be offline exactly the amount of sideways tip offset. It’s different for different shafts, but for each shaft there’s one pivot length for all tip offsets. The example in the picture assumes a pivot length of 1 diamond (12.5 inches) for illustration purposes. ADJUSTING FOR SQUIRT: Pivoting your shaft at its pivot length (pivot point) to apply sidespin makes the shaft duplicate the CB squirt angle in the opposite direction, adjusting for squirt to send the CB along the original shot line. Find your cue’s pivot point, pivot there, make shots/get shape. Simple, right? Well, except for swerve, which changes the “effective pivot point” for every shot.
