Here's some tips for becoming a great setter, from Al Scates, longtime coach at UCLA.
1- First, become a good setter. Put up the best hittable set under each circumstance, giving your hitter as many options as possible.
2- Once you're "good," become a smart setter. Learn and exploit your opponent's weaknesses, know who your hot hitters are at the moment, learn where they like the ball and set it there, and listen to your coach's suggestions.
3- Once you're "smart," become a deceptive setter. Try not to give clues as to which way you'll be setting, mix it up, make every set hittable and don't become predictable.
