To OP. Are you having problems with drawing itself or landing in certain target zone? If zone are you over hitting or coming up short or not drawing back in straight line?

Grabbing and releasing should be left to the experts and maybe done only on shots where the player really needs extreme power, as with hard break shots. Many pros execute long draw shots without grabbing and releasing their hands.

This type of "try this and try that" advice can be harmful and create bad habits. The OP should be careful of what advice he heeds. And just because something is in video doesn't mean it's right for you.

Just make sure your cue stick moves in and out on the SAME ANGLE OF ATTACK .. No dipping, and whatever angle you choose, keep it throughout the stroke, and move your arm fast enough and hit your mark on the cue ball. That's it. Seriously. Once you start playing around with hand grabs, you risk twisting the cue in a big way, especially if you're not an expert.
