APA Dr. Cue Instruction – Dr. Cue Pool Lesson 34: Foundation for Jumping!

www.poolplayers.com – Dr. Cue Pool Lesson 34 Foundation for Jumping – One of the most common skills that fascinate players is the jump shot. Many believe they can not jump, when in fact almost everyone that has moved a cue at a rapid rate of acceleration has in fact jumped. A skipping action of the cue ball occurs when struck at a fast speed due to the tip causing a slight downward pressure on it. Anyone that has ever thrown a stone across water has the principle in hand, so to speak, using speed and a slight incline of the motion being applied to achieve this beauty! A faster and more inclined cue generally creates a higher jump effect!!

    Thanks Tom. Mike Massey showed us the thing with the coin last week. I had no idea that even a little bit of cue elevation can cause the cue ball to jump.

    I’ve always had trouble jumping because of the way I held my cue. After seeing this I will make sure to practice more and more on jumping before leagues start soon. Thanks Dr. Cue

    Tom Rossman did a clinic at a local hall in my hometown several years ago. After a mindblowing exibition he asked if anybody in the house wanted to play him in a game of 9-ball. There were only a few takers and I was one. (I’m just a hack but guess what….I get to play Dr. Cue,right.) Finally, it’s my turn. I break making the 6. I make the 1 then he proceeds to run out in about 30 sec., smiling and talking the whole time. We shot the breeze and he gave me some pointers, too. SUPER nice guy!

    @sandrobl1

    Yes, a moron is what you are don’t act surprise I am sure you have been told this all your life or did your mommy and daddy not want to hurt your feelings? aw poor poor little baby. Me personally I would call you a retarded ass motherfucker to your face if I could because you really do need to hear it if you haven’t then maybe you can get a life and stop working at that crappy ass fast food place that you do.

    my bf can jump over a ball that is practically right infront of the cue…. how do I do this?

    I think kobe’s style is? miles ahead of lebrons. I feel like lebron is just some sort of giant super mutant that can muscle into anything, but it’s not nearly as pretty as kobe.
    geez man, take a look at this if you play basketball at all – “goo.gl / JdHU3”
