Banking Line

You ask why? How about one of the greatest all-around players said so? Nick Varner uses this drill to get a feel for bank shots. Itís a great exercise on your home table and an effective way to read unfamiliar rails.

Line up eight or nine along the long rail (somewhere between the two red lines to start). Take ball in hand and try to pocket each ball in the bottom corner pocket. As you move from ball to ball, keep the cue ball moving along the blue line.
