Keep working at it, especially the wrist snap, and the closed-open-closed feeling described above.
The thing that helped me with the wrist shot was when I went from owning 10 to 40 pucks that I would shoot on my shooting pad.
It sounds stupid, but having that many more before I had to go chase them all down, really let me get in a grove, and make each one slightly improved over the next. It was that repetition, that being able to feel the shot feel "sweet" and build on. It took me a while to focus on each area of the myriad of things I needed to fix with my shot.
