I didn't mean the cut angles increase linearly. If vertical lines follow the contour of

and would be increasing narrower from center to edge. Think of a flat disk instead
of a sphere, with evenly spaced lines, or 5 vertical aim points on a pencil glued to
the front of the OB. CCB aim at the 5 points would be OB overlaps center to edge.
I know 1/4 ball isn't exactly 15*.. If someone put both arms up, one at 15* and the
other at 14.5*, I doubt if I could tell... 0, 15 & 30 are just easy to remember. IMO
Thanks for 1/8 ball overlap angles increasing wider than 8 degrees after 30*.. Carl

Yes, I understood what you meant. My comment about nonlinearity was referring to your use of the equally spaced angles of 7.5, 15, 22.5, and 30, not to the spacing of the vertical aim lines. I know you just use the multiples of 7.5 as "close enough" out to the halfball aim; I agree. For anyone interested, I just listed the cut angles with a little more precision.
