shotmaker test - 03-20-2012, 10:06 AM

Hey guys,
I uploaded a pdf file with a shotmaker test.
Here you can download it if you like.

http://issuu.com/ekkes/docs/my_shotm...ode=singlePage

It's a good tester for your pockiting skills and your concentration!
All important balls are in this test. Long follow shots-long draw shots, long stun shots, short follow shots and short stun shots.

I included some important information for stuns in the video I uploaded on you tube too!

Here you see me making the test for all cuts to the right 20 min. UNCUT


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxNXfxI7Jc0


Watch the video and then go to the table for yourself and TRAIN!

Thanks for posting this.

FYI, another good shot-making test presented on AZB in the past (by Colin Colenso) is Colin's Potting Drill. It is a good drill for practicing and assessing shot-making ability. It can also be done with stun, follow, and draw at different speeds for more of a challenge.

Regards,
Dave

Hey, did you ever try this? I remember you being part of the discussion, but when it came time to put up a video...only 3-4 guys did it.

Yes. The drill is a little boring, but it is certainly a fun challenge (if you are in the mood for such a thing).

That's what I remember also.

Did you post a video? If so, why?

Do you think more people should post videos? If so, why?

Regards,
Dave

I did post a video because that was one of the original stipulations. You know, lots of b.s. on the Interwebs and video can sometimes be proof positive.

How did you score? Why didn't you post a vid?

I like it also. Just one question: Is the placement of the spots on the table exact or just close enough to get the right angles, ect.? I'm guessing the later and that's fine. I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything while conducting the drills. Thanks.

I think if he posted an uncut video of Ekke's drill (or Colin's), people would laugh at him. Is that what you're getting at?

While that might happen, the original point was that the other Dave was quite vocal (still is) about these type of threads, just curious why he wouldn't participate?

Maybe he doesn't have video equipment??

Nice if some
of you like it!
I would like some people to try it at the table and post their experience.
I think I will do a little contest:
For the next 4 weeks anyone that posts a video doing that drill on one side like I did on youtube will get a free copy of my book/ video THE SEE SYSTEM for free.
The player with the less mistakes prooved by an uncut video gets dollars 50 from me via paypal and a free lesson from Darren Appleton and me on pool training content of his wishes when we will our (SIGHT) SEE ING TOUR in summer 2012
How about that?

Rush to the tables now!!!

It s a nice practice test- i would call it more *focus-test* -- And the test from Ekkes also- Hard shots you usualy have to make just a few times in a complete match. But necessary to make it and also to practice.
I like tests like these- so players can measure themselves and set themselve new goals.

Ekkes- if you have a pdf-version of it, would appreciate it to receive it per mal from you :-)

I have a question? Why is it necessary to shoot stun, draw, and follow? If this is just a pocketing test couldn't we just shoot a rolling ball on all 3 shots? I'm a beginner, so please excuse my ignorance, but is shooting draw, or stun going to affect the aiming of the shot? I've never felt I have to adjust aiming unless I'm using sidespin. Thanks in advance for ur patience and response

I was sure it would be no problem. Took me a couple of hours to get it down. Ill be adding this to my practice routine.
