Here is my question of the day, with apologies to the curious Mr. vapros.

Ball is frozen to the rail and you want to bank it. What is the maximum percetage of the ball you can hit with any spin and not get a double kiss going to pocket A? These shot drive me crazy. See below.

I play a lot of banks and the way the shot appears on the layout it is not bankable. What say Freddy?

skin the way it looks it cant be banked without the double kiss. to answer your question of how much of the ball you could you hit without a double kiss id say 1/2 ball hit at best. obviously freddy will have to give the definitive word.

Larry, half-ball is fattest hit I have been able to get on these without the double-kiss. But you know, the bank pool guys sometimes have tricks the rest of us don't know about. Nobody so far is saying it will bank, though.

The shot is possible, but I wouldnt shoot it unless the q ball was no more than a foot away from it. Even then I would have to be desperate. Artie's shot is probably right for 1 pkt. In bank pool I would play it four rails unless, like I said, I was on top of it. Eddie Taylor hit these better than anybody.

Thank you FB. I have shot AT that sucker for years. As a chile' I used to could make it MAYBE 50-50 while now it is a 5% play .... what an evil deflection is and how much greater it is on 'directionless' cloth. A couple of feet can make all the difference can it not? Is a 4 railer legal from there?.... I did not know one was allowed to play hangers.....

Pay attention to rail rubber on a shot like that too.
