    I've thought for a while that using screw can affect the angle of the pot but if you hit the cueball straight it should be fine?

    I play on some tables in the league and they can have a heavy nap and it is certainly apparent more there.

    Even if you hit centre ball across the nap at an angle from a reasonable distance the nap isn't perfectly against or with the line of your shot so it must affect the angle as some of the grip of the ball has to be across the line as the nap points that way.

    obviously on super fine and match cloths the affect must be minimal, just my take on it.

    I think it's just more difficult to hit centre ball when playing with screw perhaps?
    One shot i'm particularly strong/confident with is the drag shot usually when playing into the middles and across the nap. Not sure why but it's maybe a shot that suits my action and I find playing with drag actually allows me to
    control the cueball's path very well.

    I suspect this is caused by getting unintentional side on a more powerful shot. It may not be a lot but it will effect the path of the CB a little bit. I too use drag and haven't noticed myself aiming thicker or thinner at all and I use drag over an 11ft shot sometimes.

    It's not drag after 11ft

    Is that because the cue ball is airborne?

    He said he uses drag on a shot of that distance. Not that is drags over 11 ft

    Then the drag would have no effect on the object ball.
