I think the CB hops on every hard break, more or less depending on angle and speed. If your best hard break tends to jump up off the head ball you can adjust the cue elevation, starting place and/or speed to better match the length of the CB's hops to the length of the shot. I'd try to keep the speed up and adjust first the cue elevation and then the shot length.
