Draw shot

The draw shot is used to spin the cue ball backwards.

For that, we position the tip of the cue on the low part of the cue ball:

STANDARD TRAJECTORIES

Here are some backspin trajectories:

Full

Aiming center

full billiard aim
Angle 0 °: we returns on the initial spot

drawshot with full billiard aim

3/4 full

Aiming 1/4 radius from the center

3/4 full billiard aim
Angle 22 °
draw shot with 3/4 full aim in billiard

3/4

Aiming 1/2 radius from the center

aiming 3/4 of the billiard ball
Angle 45 °


1/2 ball

Aiming 1 radius from the center

aiming 1/2 ball
Angle 90 °

1/2 BALL DRAW SHOT

The final direction corresponds to an angle of 90° compared to the axis of the cue and, a ball before the impact point.

Here is the demonstration on the table:

How to determine easily the 45 degree's final direction ?

Visualize this angle with precision, we proceed in 2 times:

1) to imagine a 4th ball representing the cue ball in contact with the played ball
2) to visualize the direction of the cue ball, look for a point at a distance "4th ball - cue ball" from the cue ball's center situated on a line perpendicular at the cue axis.

This is illustrated by the following video:


OTHER DRAW SHOT TRAJECTORIES

In practice, the real direction of the cue ball is not exactly one of the previous ones.

Here is a method to go in any direction:

* draw a line from where we want to go and the center of the played ball
* aim at the intersection of this line and the played ball's circumference

The following sketch illustrates these remarks:
