    Actually the elevation and angle depend of the distance from the cueball to the ball you try to jump. He also forgot to mention that the best way is to grip the cue very light and aim like a normal shot and just stand up, also the backarm is best to be in a straightdown position and not with an offstroke.

    I seen a lot of good players using a jump cue: Alex Pagulayan, Francisco Bustamante, Efren Reyes, Larry Nevel. Fact is it is easier with a jump cue then a regular playing cue, some people don’t like to use it because it is nicer to see a kick shot then a jump. But it is about personal preffernce.

    I know that jumping a ball, while hitting the cueball below center is considered a foul shot. Maybe you have some different rules, but I compete and the propper way to jump (calling a jump is only in 8 ball and 10 ball) is to strike from above with an angle and above the center of the cueball.

    u poor nobb that is legal ilegal is when u aim at the cue ball really low and chip it up

    maybe you play with people who don’t know a lot about billiards but your way is definitely an illegal shot. there’s only one way to legally jump a ball, and the way in this video is it.

    illegal shot

  10. lewismcmahonmusic on July 17, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    yea. but you hit the cue ball hard enough/ with enough force that it jumps. plus i didnt say anything about scooping the ball – which is illegal. i do this in matches all the time and no one has ever said i was playing an illegal shot………….

  11. stevesp101 on July 17, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    no dude, it’s always illegal. it’s called scooping the cue ball, and it’s illegal because the cue comes into contact with the ferrule of the stick, when you’re only legally allowed to touch the cue ball with the tip for an instant. calling it had nothing to do with it. that’s like saying if you call a scratch on the 8 ball you win that game.

  12. lewismcmahonmusic on July 17, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    my way isnt illegal if you “call” the jump shot before you play it.

  13. stevesp101 on July 17, 2011 at 10:22 pm

    yeah except his way is legal and your way is completely illegal.

  14. lewismcmahonmusic on July 17, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    good players dont need to use a different cue to jump.
    just aim like a normal shot but aim ihe tip right at the bottom of the white. hit with “considerable force”.
    use my way for short distance jumps and his way for long distance.
    it is also sometimes easier to play off the side or coushin than to play a jump shot.

    wow nobel prize winner here…of course you bank if you can…but if its going to be more than 2-3 banks then it would be sometimes easier to jump (or play safe)

  16. lilmelo94 on July 17, 2011 at 11:30 pm

    bugga it play bar rules

  17. aidencurl on July 18, 2011 at 12:17 am

    you could always come off a cushion to hit the ball but that would probs be too difficult for this guy haha

  18. thegreatNEb on July 18, 2011 at 1:10 am

    yeah that is also how I can do it…but that kind of jump is technically illegal as you are lifting the ball instead of shooting it with one touch….

  19. lilmelo94 on July 18, 2011 at 1:45 am

    this is how i do it
    i put my hand flat on the table so it hits below the middle of the ball then raise your other with the cue
    doesnt leave a mark on the table

  20. thegreatNEb on July 18, 2011 at 1:49 am

    ive tried this so many times and it NEVER seems to work. all it gets me is chalk scratches all over the felt :(

    the vid is perfect though….mystery
