I would like to thank each of you for taking time to respond to my
post. You provided some good advice.
I would like to clarify my original statement. When I said 30%, I
meant that on the power draw shot that I described, I failed to
successfully pocket the object ball 30% of the time due to a miscue or
accuracy was my problem. Draw was not an issue. It was just harder for
me to pocket the object ball (using a power draw shot) with a Predator

times with your Predator 314 and record how many times you pocket the
object ball (drawing the two diamonds is of secondary importance).
Then repeat with a non-Predator cue.
