This is the first I've heard of Bob's technique. 1/2 Tip below center does it for me. Also the angle of attack of the cue stick at the point of impact is important. If the angle is too much, the cb will bounce on it's way to the rack and lose force by the time it hits the rack. It may even jump forward after hitting the rack --- as in off the table forward.
