after playing about half a year i found it sometimes usefull to just give the ball a light flip to get the ball under controll in cradle situation, I'm not talking about flick passes. Inspired by this, I thought about using weak shots for "dangerous shots"- like targets with a high drain risk.
I found it very hard to aim with this technique, because sometimes the flipper wont move and the travel paths also seems to be different.
It helped to route the middlefinger below the button to get a sense for the distance. I pulled it off some times, resulting in a slow ball hitting that target and it was easy to predict its path.
Anyone uses soft shots and to what extend?
