If you haven't guessed these are questions about Breaking.
What are the "general" factors that go into a good hard break? By
general I mean common.
What are some individual preferences?
1. Hand placement on the stick: End of the ***
2. Break off the rail or on the table: Off the rail
3. Point of aim on the cueball: Low as if to draw
4. Pause at the end or juice it from the start: Pause as if drawing
5. Point of aim on the rack: Spot just below the one ball square
6. Foot position and body movement: Balanced
7. Follow through: I usually freeze in my follow through position
until either the balls stop moving or one is about to run into my
8. Stroking arm position at the moment of impact with the cueball: I
try to get my forearm perpendicular to the ground.
Am I missing any?
I listed my preferences after each one. I find that pausing right
before I let loose helps my hit on the cueball.
Any comments or suggestions would behelpful.
