It really forces you to learn CB control by limiting CB movement, creating stop shots, and playing delicate shots.
Jim Rempe says that is the best drill to practice for straight pool patterns. When I was younger a lot of the old timers recommended that drill and the circle drill for cue ball control. Thanks for the information .
