NOTE – Standard kicking and banking systems work fairly well on most pool equipment; although, adjustments will be required based on table conditions. Also, Diamond brand tables (especially the 7′ tables and the older “Red label” 9′ tables) play much shorter and faster than all other table brands, so significant adjustments will need to be made (by aiming down-table more) when playing on Diamond tables. For more information, see Diamond table kick and bank effects.
