    i always thought hitting the table would mess the felt or whatever up

  7. Mystix212 says:

    if your not careful there is every possibility that you can tear the felt, so be cautious.

    NOONE TRY THIS. You will tear your felt and need a new table no doubt. This guy is seriously stupid if he thinks your not going to tear your felt..

    allright, its fun to jump balls on a pooltable… it’s also a foul tho, so fail.

  12. girlwon1 says:

    It is not a foul if you jump the ball this way. It is only a foul if you scoop a ball. Also, when you are good at jumping, you will not tear the cloth. It is only people who are trying to get the feel of how to jump correctly that end up ripping the cloth. What he did was both legal and correct.

    Is it possible to jump the cue ball without striking the table?

    @XxTheMetalxX don’t be ridiculous. You probably think you’re gonna get in a wreck every time you sit in a car.
