Is there anywhere I can get some help?
All I see is Snake & Pull Shot assistance, (zzzzzzz), and I figure a good PUSH
shot, because its not used as much, is what I wish to learn as my second shot.
I have a crude version of one already, but would appreciate help and advice
regarding grip, stance, practice methods etc.
My main shot is the Pull Kick - see, I aim to be unusual, but I also remember
how lethal and sucessful that used to be..(old TS player here). Does anyone
else shoot this sucessfully?
Push: this may not work for you, because it hardly ever works for me.
When I hit a good one it seems I start hitting the ball around the big
dot and following through to the long hole. This makes my shot faster
and it still gets out there a good way, 3/4 or more.

Pull kick: I've seen a few people score fairly consistently by
starting the ball closer to the middle of the table Instead of the way
they shot it back in the TS days. (I think?)
I'll exchange some ideas with you, but first tell me how you shoot yours, open
or closed handed?
The thing is, theoretically, it should be as devastating as a pull, and every
so often it is, but theres no consistency. Also, the long seems harder to
square off - but I have a faster long when its a spray.
I figured that open handed, you wouldn't be able to sneak the angles either,
either pushing or pulling back (recoil) after the shot. Still, as I said, I
will bow to your shot.
Question: When YOU shoot open handed, are you executing the, say long, from a
closed hand position? If you are, I definately can't do that !! Lol.
My straight, funnily enough, I can shoot both open and closed.
Finally, are your legs level, or is one in front of the other? And is your 5
bar away from you, near side or in the middle on the set up?
Thanks Kev - sorry to be a pain.
