Cue extension on all break shots? - 02-13-2019, 11:17 AM

In watching the video of Mika Immonenís 201 ball run in this yearís DCC straight pool challenge, I noticed that he was putting an extension on his cue for many, if not all, of his break shots - whether he needed extra length or not. It certainly appeared that he was doing this in order to get more weight, not length, in his cue when playing break shots. Maybe Iím late to the party on this one, but is this ďa thingĒ?

Iím not sure if this is ďa thingĒ or not, but I did ask Mika after his run why he used the extension. He said he felt that the extra weight helped him to drive through the cue ball better.

you noticed that too huh....

The way i figured is that he can get more drive in the cb without having to swing harder and risk missing the shot as well.

I tried it this weekend with my extension on, and I'll be damned it worked great. Part of me feels this is cheating though..lol

Maybe it is becoming a thing - in the 260 ball Orcollo run, I saw him doing it too!

My next cue (on order) is being built to have the port for the quick release extension.
