    And harder to reliably strike anywhere else.

      Care to say why ?
      Speak up, you've got to speak up against the madness, you've got speak your mind if you dare
      but don't try to get yourself elected, for if you do you'll have to cut your hair

        I don't normally do this, so forgive me, but I will answer your question with a question. Why don't more snooker players use tips as large as 11mm?

          1. Deflection increases with end mass
          2. You can strike lower with a smaller tip
          3. More accurate on the white

              I wouldn't expect to pot it 25 times in a row if it's a shot you normally struggle with but yeah you could either do best out of 10 or 25 or you could aim to make 10 pots or make 25 pots and just try to reduce overall the amount of times you miss getting those pots I like the idea of just potting the ball 25 times and if I miss one or two that's fine I'm not aiming to get 25 out of 25 I'm aiming to get some feel for that especially if that is a particulary awkward type of shot like under the cushion or a thin cut. Something like a black off the spot from a foot away then yeah you shouldnt really be missing many of those anyway if you are something wrong with your sighting or technique in general
