Any drills or suggestions for banking with a low deflection shaft? Have had my z-2 for a little bit now but banks are still so so with it

Thereís no difference unless youíre banking with side spin - then itís just adjusting your aim to hit the OB where you want to, like any other shot.

Try this to experiment and determine deflection. Find your pivot point or at least use the same bridge length.

Put the cue ball on the head line 1/2 inch off the long rail. Now put an object ball a couple inches past the side pocket on the same long rail, also 1/2 inch off the rail. Shoot this several times with stop shot.. This will give you some feeling of shooting straight.

Now do this with left spin stop shot until you consistently make the ball and the cue ball stops and spins in place.. Next try right spin. Then go to left draw...then right draw...right follow...left follow.

This is a great exercise for beginners also.

Good call.
