I believe years ago when I was having this problem, it was because of the things you mentioned. As I spent more time making the ball it went away.So, the shot is tough already, right? Now, we throw in pulling shape with proper speed, angle and English. That makes the shot harder, for sure, but perhaps more importantly, it divides your attention. No longer are you solely just focused on pocketing the ball. Now you've got to pocket it, account for deflection, throw, speed, all that stuff.
Today with ball in hand on my game ball, I still cinch the shot and never try to play the CB safe. I'm now very comfortable with making the ball and my percentage is very high.
