    First...I Eat

    Depends on how well you are shooting.You could always thin the 11 and put the cue ball on the bottom rail preferably on the 3.

    Jump sticks have changed the game

    I own a jump cue.It is 20 years old.I rarely use it.I like the challenge of kicking so unless I really have no chance to kick and get a hit,I will jump.(Doesn't mean it will be a successful jump).Depends alot on how important the game and match are.If I am playing for fun,I won't use a jump cue.
