It makes it especially hard shooting down the rail when you need to shoot with speed.

I watch many accu-stats matches and see shots that would not even be close to going in on the tables I play on. I even hear the best players at my pool hall complaining about the pockets, but in the end I think it might make you a better player.

I was just wondering if anyone else plays with pockets like this.
In order to answer you with some reasons...I need to know what kind of tables we're talking about here
