Set another object ball on the spot and shoot it in with draw again. Never touch or reposition the CB again. Just keep shooting the shot and drawing back. See how many you can make before getting too far out of line and causing the CB to hit a rail.
Wow, that is one I have done and forgotten about. Thanks for reminding me! Will add variety to practice.

Turning practice into little games like this is a very effective method for rapid improvement. The brain really handles this type of development well.
My way of getting competition practice is to do the drills left hand against the right. My left hand(my second) has won the last two days of practice. Today he set a personal record of 4 in a row of the bounce back drill on the 10 foot table.

I do the same thing -- pit left hand against right playing 6-ball. I can't run 9 very often left-handed, but using six balls gives my left hand a better chance when my right hand gets out of line. I also like to use two different cues -- Mezz vs Schon, or Mezz vs Joss, or Valley bar cue, etc.... It's great practice to highlight exactly how much you depend on your normal playing cue's deflection, or lack of deflection. Playing with anything other than my Mezz, I use less english and focus more on natural roll. It's weird, but when the Mezz loses I feel bad. I mean, she's my regular shooting partner! Lol
