tailor chalk - 05-12-2018, 10:12 AM

We use the tailor chalk as well, also I learned some people will try to use a different (larger) rack then the original rack that was used to draw the outline - during competition - I wont let em do it. This will result in them manipulating how high or low the balls can be racked during a run - in rack yer own format - all to familiar too me with no referee's. Also may want to make sure the original rack that is used for outline does not leave much extra space or you will cheat yourself on open space/ close quarter break shots.I hope this helps.

I got the Dritz. Hmmm... That sounds like and old-person's disease. The leads are pretty hard so the line tends to be thin, which is fine.

My understanding is that the outline is part of the set up rules for the game, kind of like the spots on a snooker table. If there is no outline I would say that using the triangle to measure should be fine since you aren't using the equipment to get an advantage. The rack outline was supposed to be there to begin with.

A slightly different example: measuring the break ball indicates that it is half a millimeter outside the triangle and the triangle is used to rack. The ball should be marked, removed from the racking area, and put back after the balls are racked.

Another example: if you are using a Sardo rack, which has a much larger outline than a traditional rack and also a very complicated outline, the outline should be marked with a traditional rack to avoid changing the game significantly.
You are right. I think I got carried away. That is what I usually do - i.e. use a marker. And it sure would not be an option to use balls and setting them down on the table for checking purposes only.
