Grid-fu is easier said than done. one may read about it, and know about it, know how to do it, but you have to have patience, time, and the need to pull it off. There's very little need to use grid-fu when you run alphafleets, and if you don't fail at sniping, you have no need for it either.

Sniper fleets got a major buff with the new BC's. Something that can motor around at 1900m/s with 10K alpha out to 80km sounds like a pretty good sniper boat to me. Or a 1700m/s Naga landing 550DPS DPS out to 250km. All you need is an FC with half a brain, a competent group of people, and a plan, and you can make sniping work.
