How far can you draw? - 11-29-2007, 08:32 PM

Put the CB about 10 inches away from the short rail, the object in the jaws of the far corner pocket and see how far you can draw back! I tried this today and I just wanna see how close I am to the average AZer.



PS: I got about 5 and a half feet of draw.

I've been able to draw back the length of the table and back out just past the side pocket...

Run the set up by me again. Say I'm standing at the head rail and have the CB 10 inches off the head rail on the LEFT side of the table shooting for a straight in on an OB in the jaws of the lower RIGHT corner?

Is that what you mean?

Thanks

Yeah, that's what I meant, sorry I'm really trying to work on my draw at the moment it used to be better a month or two ago but I'm slowly getting it back.

I did this on a seven foot valley with nappy cloth and the mudball a few months ago. I was about 5 inches from the short rail and drew it back to the rail I shot it on with a house cue. I thought it was pretty good for the conditions. I don't have a 9' to try it on though.

i can draw full table. I just got back from tournament and my opponent hung the 2 ball in the top left corner and the 3 was on the bottom rail about one diamond out the cue ball was 2 inches from the bottom rail about a half diamond away from the side. Now there was too much traffic to go 3 rails. I know my stroke pretty well and i knew i was capable of drawing it that far. So i went for it and got the cue ball to zip back all the way and bounce a few inches off the bottom rail, leaving me perfect on the 3 ball. I ran out that rack from there............too bad I still lost the match

I could make draw shots very well and easily too. I was told that is was because of my predator shaft having the ability to produce alot of spin.

Does anyone else notice the same?

you think that's something...I've heard Cuetec's SST shaft is incredible - look at some of the other threads here

I can normally draw at least a full table length (9 foot) easily from about 6 diamonds away. I can't draw much further no matter how far I try! Sometimes if I'm hitting them good 1 and 1/4 table lengths.

I use to play with a predator and it does help, I now play with a regular shaft and my stroke is developed enough that I can juice the ball with whatever english I desire. But there are some people that just cant produce the stroke well enough and the predator technology does aid in it. But a local pro in my area (Dave Hemmah) plays with a predator and he does the craziest stroke shots Ive seen, which I dont think can be done without a predator

Hey, I'll be happy if I pocket that object ball!
