yea i have a blocky and i hit the cross bar 8/10 times with pin and snake shots. Like others have said shooting from the back also hits the 5 bar. At warwick i found it much easier to snake and pin tho because of the change from blocky to pin.

If you use blocky I'd swap out the magic balls and use some older WC05 (white) balls or Bahrenherz white balls.

You'll find these don't hit the bar (as much) and they don't hit the five bar either when shooting from the 2.
