Does anyone know a bank shot drill?
I want one that allows me to improve my game.
If I know one please tell me.

Just line up a row of balls along the rail, each ball spaced about 5 inches apart and bank them in. You can have the balls frozen to the rail, then next move them out a couple of inches from the rail, and last drill a row of balls across the center of the table.

Also with a friend, you can play bank 8 ball where you must bank the 8 to win. Or even require that every shot must be a bank.

This is a reasonable facsimile of a bank exercise, except BB puts it backwards. The frozen balls are the toughest banks. Begin with the balls all along the long string, in the center of the table. Then progress to halfway between the center of the table and the side rail; then moving closer to the rail, and finishing with frozen rail banks.

If you want to improve your banking, might I suggest getting a copy of "Banking With the Beard"? It is a great book with wonderful insights on banking, then work on the drills that have been mentioned.
