    Where do you hit the CB to get the most spin in a draw shot?

    Try it this way also--bridge to center cue ball, but then raise the cue SLIGHTLY rather then spread your bridge hand as for regular draw. Try to play a regular center cue ball stroke, the feel will be different now, and the ball will draw, especiallly with a soft stroke, start with the cue ball...

    One main "straight" stroke fundamental

    Better for the instructors' forum, but a commitment to a straight stroke whether or not you feel aim is off. This is the very fastest way to both straighten your stroke and learn instinctive, correct aim. If conversely, you feel aim is off but don't commit to a straight stroke, you will likely...

    Another observation: PSR

    The last part of the PSR is the "checkoff point" -- your time to stop left-braining shape, speed and etc. and get down to feel and do/in the zone. Billiards and golf are static, in other stick-and-ball sports we respond creatively to a moving target. Is there time to tighten on an incoming...

    lack of fundamentals or lack of practice?

    Put differently, the people who practice incessantly without improvement need lessons/direction/a look at their fundamentals.

    The Ask The Instructor subforum is best.

    My friend Tom "Dr. Cue" Rossman has a superb banks and kicks series on YouTube. Free to watch.

    CB Path vs Stroke

    Unfortunately even those doing as you describe struggle with draw. There are solutions, though.

    Tip shape

    In general, amateurs who like a nickel shape find they get more spin with a dime but more errors, too. Most amateurs should use a nickel roundness on a 13 mm tip IMHO.
