DC2 Spheda: How the hell?

So far, it’s pretty much blind luck for me to actually complete a level. How on earth do you judge distance? What effect does aiming up or down have? How do you keep the ball on the narrow pathways in the canyon? I’ve got all 5 clubs now, but it doesn’t do me a bit of good; there’s virtually no situation where you have a clear enough line of sight to use the big one, and I have no idea how to get the smallest one to fire for less than 50 feet.

It’s not like I can really just figure it out through trial and error, what with the 5 minute interval between attempts. Grr.

Max’s dad sells a spheda stick for shorter distances…

I’ve already got that one. I’m starting to vaguely get the hang of it; I can do extremely short distances now.
