i was shooting this shot/drill last night, concentrating on my SPF. there is about 1/4" total clearance here. obviously if the 1-Ball or 6-Ball move, the shot was unsuccessful.

just wondering what everyone thinks here? good concept? ok, but nothing great? waste of time? i was hitting the shots with various positions and speeds on the vertical axis. also, practiced shooting this with break speed using SPF principles.

Looks like a variation of Mother Drill #3. I like it.

Set up balls on either side of the cue ball track so that you have to shoot through a tunnel of balls. Can you still make the shot with the distractions?

sounds like an interesting thought. i have even done that before on draw shots, into the corner pockets.

have to give it a try tonight after i get home from the HS B'Ball game.

What is your goal for this drill? Is it to strengthen your shooting routine, or to increase your accuracy?

A drills should be focused with one specific goal.

Waste of time imo.Go to the poolhall and play cheap sets.
