Seven Rails of Follow - 08-11-2020, 10:40 AM

Here is a little shot you may want to learn. Try to figure a way to shoot a 7 rail follow shot before you open the link. It is worth winning a couple beers from time to time.

I can think of a far easier way to it than that. Iíll try it out before I confirm.

While in your diagram it froze on the 7th rail, I wouldn't count that unless it hit and came off, even a hair.

At snooker, if you hit a hook by freezing on the ball...itís a good hit.
...hitting a rail is the same thing.


Lionize your game.

And if a ball is froze to a rail you have to drive that ball to another rail.

Just my thought on this.

That is a case wher it starts on the rail, not finishes on one.

Good hit!

I was thinking when you said "Follow" it was going to be a much fuller hit with high english.

So, if your opponent is playing a soft safety and just gets the one ball to a cushion and it freezes, you're going to tell him he didn't get a cushion.

I think that will lead to an interesting, earnest conversation.

Here's a 9-railer that VP4 says is possible. A thin cut like this isn't a follow shot - in fact, hitting the CB high could slow the CB's rebound off the first end rail.

Yeah, that is much more of a carom shot then anything else. I would not consider to to be a follow shot either.

Yeah, it is a carom shot to see how many rails you can get the cue ball to go, not a follow shot. Question is, do you need to make the ball in order to win the bet?
