The half masse has a special beauty of its own, as evidenced by one of the most popular challenges of all time the Passing Lane shot! A cue ball frozen to an object ball provides pure shooting enjoyment when the half masse allows the cue ball to pass the object ball on the way to the corner pocket with the object ball following it into the same pocket. Also called the Great Race and Sea Biscuit shot!! Mike Massey calls this shot Scratching with Style!!
