How do you know if you are going to hit a second diamond instead of the first one, is that guaranteed because of ball weight/speed? Can a ball go past two diamonds? Don't they call no bets before you can traingulate?
good qwestion. To set up a target diamond ( drop zone) we need to look directly how long ball takes to arrive to different diamonds ( drop zones).
Easy way to understand is to use stop watch. When you think it's right moment ( prediction moment) - start stop watch. When ball beat diamond ( or numbers)... stop it. Gather 5- 6 of these timings and pit them side by side.
Arrive to target diamond- 10 seconds.
Overshoot- 9 seconds
Undershoot 11 seconds.
This timings are for explaining only, in reality may be other. But from this example you may see that difference in timings between diamonds are 1 second. If rotor speed will be 4 second, it will not really matter wich diamond ball will beat.
To understand this phenomenon of overlaps, take some timings from spins with avidemux software and experiment with them.
Learn how to determine favorable rotor speeds wich compensate for different situations and how to change your aim time or reference place to adjust for different conditions . It's only way to understand it, need to make " homework".
My prediction moment vary depending on conditions. Sometimes l already placed bets and wait for nmb, sometimes l barely able to place a bet... it depends on whenever ball have past his caotic state or not and on type of throw, rotor speed. I use vb3 most of the time, it has different moments of prediction into the spin, depending on rotor speed. So it looks only natural.
