Bank shot

Post by Zico » Wed Jan 23, 2013 6:59 am

Just want to ask for advice on bank shots, I've been practicing at home and its very inconsistent. I also find it quite hard to get the sharp angle from the middle on the 2 bar.

Thanks guys! I would love to bank like Dave Oates, Simon, etc!

Hi what table are you playing on as if its a tornado banking will always be unreliable due to the shape of the foot.

If its a fire ball then you should be ok and to bank you need to hit the ball in a forward but slightly side ways motion aiming at just under half the ball. It also helps if the ball is slightly back from under the bar but not too far back.

Most importantly Zico if you score you must shout "phez" or "el phezante".
