2K stopped us from seeing the shot feedback in the practice mode this year for reasons unknown to us. But that didn't stop us from finding a way to bring up the shot feedback to determine the real advantage to using the shot stick versus just shooting with the button. The test was simple - hold the button down view the grade a couple times to make sure there was consistency, and do the same with the shot stick. The results are below
As you can see, there is a enormous advantage when using the shot stick when compared to just using the button IF your aiming is excellent.
