Your percent for this drill? - 12-06-2019, 09:33 AM

Here's a drill I do a lot. Line up all 15 balls in a line between the side pockets. Set up a straight-in shot from the second diamond (like shown on the diagram) and shoot into the corner with a stop shot/slight draw. Repeat (ball in hand, straight-in) for all balls, 7 into one corner, 8 into the other.

What percentage do you make and what do you consider your playing level? Just curious to see how I compare.

Thanks.

Ball in hand each time? I mean setup a straight shot each time?

I make about 95% of these. I've been playing for around a year and a half. I'd consider myself intermediate.

What is your percentage?

Yes, set up a straight-in with ball-in-hand.

Ok. Probably a great drill for developing a consistent stroke, and for working on your focus/concentration.

I'm around 12-13 out of 15, I'd say I'm a bit under intermediate. I do hit all 15 maybe every 5th time.

Not for every ball do you have bih right, just to start?

No particular order either?

Ball in hand for each shot, start at one end to the other in order.

I haven't done this drill but with bih each shot, I would imagine my percentage would be fairly high. I'll have to get to the pool room early Monday and try it since I don't have a 9' at the house.

Same, if I missed in this scenario it is just because I lost concentration. I typically shoot 30 or so long straight in shots (corner to opposite corner) to start every practice session. I rarely miss the straight in one. Scoot that sucker over and give me 10-20 degree cut and my percentage goes way down!

And to the OP, I am not a strong player. I bounce between APA SL-5 or 6 in 8 ball, 7-8 in 9 ball.


E. Pluribus Unum...that is what our country was founded on...and what we should be striving for today

Disclaimer: I am only an APA 5. I am scared to play for the cheese, even if I have the nuts. I only play on toy 7 foot tables and am terrified of real 9 foot tables. My proudest posessions are my APA patches. Take everything I say with a grain of salt.

If you make 14/15 the highest % you can have is 93.

My best was doing the drill 3 times in a row without a miss, 9' table. I also tend to miss only when I lose concentration for a second or shoot out of rhythm (usually too quickly). I've also done the drill with the cue ball 1 diamond farther back twice in a row without missing. I tend to lose focus if I do the drill too long, so I might only do it a few times to prevent developing bad habits from rushing/getting bored.
