Practice this TML pattern on your table until each one becomes a known and trustworthy shot.
The reverse spin straightens out the path. If you're kicking to a ball in this area, you have more than one opportunity to make a legal hit.
The path is predictable off the 1st rail. The ball hits the 2nd rail with reverse spin - which straightens out the path. A little bit of speed will send the cue ball into the side pocket.
This is one of the cool shots in the TML. It allows you to go all the way down-table to get a ball near the pocket. This is one of the MUST practice shots.
Other Sized Tables
For 8 foot tables, the same type of pattern requires about 1-1/4 tips out from center to get the paths shown. For 7 foot tables, 1-1/2 tip out from center is necessary to follow the pattern. The distances on small tables are less, so when the cue ball travels around in a trapezoid pattern, the rail contacts are more distorted.
