    Default Break Practicing Tool ?

    hi guys, i've heared about a practicing tool for the break that u can use instead of the regular balls, so u won't need to go rack the balls while practing just the break...

    i was trying unsuccessfully to find anything concerning it on the internet.

    so if u know anything regarding this subject, i would be very greatfull.

    Don't be lazy, rack the balls.... :twisted:

    besides learning how to break, you'll learn that it's hard to produce two identical racks so it'll be impossible to produce an identical break.
    So it's better to use real balls so you'll see the difference.
    It's also better to practice with real balls so you can see the outcome of your break.

    skor,
    i'm not lazy, and this tool will only be a part of my practice.
    u got a point (as always) but as i told u, i need this tool to practice a specific "aspect" in my break.
    thanks for ur advice anyway, i really appreciate it.

    after seeing the video, i'm sure that the impact on the cue ball is not the same.

    I'm not sure whether it's right or not. I think that they should have made a 236 sec. video and on the second one they should have made the same break shot (I know it's impossible but this equipment is created to make your break consistent) on a normal rack to see if it's useful or not - because seeing only this 0:36 vid... no one will tell whether the cb reacted well or not (in my opinion).

    they said that the tool can fit all the tables...
    now, since it has an elastic cord, and that depending on the size of the table this cord will be more or less stretched ... that led me to conclude that it's nothing more than a toy.
    u may use it to practice speed , but not cue ball control after the impact.
    again, this is only my opinion.

    A couple of things Wavy.

    It comes with three separate pieces for 7', 8', and 9' tables. Plus the cord length is adjustable as well. The purpose of the cord is to pull the rack into place after every hit.

    I also find it very useful for practicing cue ball placement. From what I can tell the CB reacts the same as hitting a normal rack. Or at least close enough to not matter.

    It's also built rather solidly, nothing I would consider a toy.

    Hope this helps
