As I was double-checking the few new links I added, I saw this video:

I actually haven’t seen that done before, so… I’ll be trying that today. 🙂

Previously, I had ran across several videos that explain and demonstrate throw (as involved in bank-shots), like the one below, which proved very helpful in my game.

I’ve made a lot more bank shots in the previous few weeks because of that video.  I have known for some time about how the speed of the bank shot affects the angle off the rail – especially when coupled with the angle going into the rail – but I couldn’t quite figure out why some of them were either banking far off or hardly at all … Throw was my answer.
