Dr. Dave also has a system for aiming fast or frozen banks - he increases the angle 1/3 diamond from the equal-angle (maybe that's equivalent to your half-ball hits?).

This reminded me of an old post of mine about calibrating the amount of sidespin to get 1, 2 or 3 diamonds of crosstable angle change. Don't know how relevant it is to your main question...
