I posted this on a regional forum & it spurred some decent conversation.
Such a simple topic, but so hard to teach and describe.
Why can't I hit a shot to save my life ?
I understand where on the flipper I need to hit the ball to reach a specific area of the playfield.
I understand a moving rolling shot vs. a cradled shot.
I understand practice makes perfect. Yes watching great players helps a ton.
I can drop catch,live catch, post pass etc etc.
The problem is, I would put my shot accuracy at 20%.
I have probably played tens of thousands of games & I still stink.
So how do you aim ??
Do you focus on the flipper bat & make the shot ?
Do you look at the shot you are aiming for , do you use the artwork on the playfield (near the flipper or a little bit out ?)
Let's see if we can get a decent discussion going, you never know what small tidbit of info, could help out us Z division player.
