Break cloth patch - 10-19-2019, 03:46 PM

Pretty simple, if you own a table do you have separate small patch of cloth you put the CB on when you break?

Finally about to get the table recovered and it crossed my mind. It's gonna get marks anyway. But I do break from the same spot most of the time.


The rail is your best friend.

Have you thought about not breaking on your home table?
Play straight pool, do drills, do the one pocket prop bet.

The grand touring rooms, back in the day, would not allow rotation games or eight ball
on their main tables...straight pool and one pocket were welcome.


Lionize your game.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

Yes, every time. Your mechanic can hand you a sashimi of cloth and you can make a bunch of them. The only thing is doesn't protect against is the burn lines from your cue follow through. You can prevent that by hitting the break shot as just a really hard shot with center ball (you get the most energy transfer that way too.)

I think the break pad is the dumbest thing ever. Letís guarantee a screwed up feel on the break to protect the table from looking like a pool table. If you insist on this unecessary thing, just use a piece of paper or the Outsville one. Ruins the break less.

The break pad is a huge pet peeve of mine. Never once seen someone advocate for it that had a good break.

Break pad? Like there's an actual product that is too thick? I don't even use my outsville ones, just a 2" square piece of Simonis.

I wonder if it makes the CB jump more or less.

I also hate the way they feel, but if I ever get my table recovered, probably going to utilize one.

I usually dont bother with one on my home table. I play enough to recover every 3 or 4 years anyway. I use Mercury Ultra....only 100 bucks. 25 bucks a year is minimal cost in my book

It will prevent ball Mark's on the spot you are breaking from. But every time you break, the cue ball WILL leave the table. There is no way to hold the cue butt low enough to prevent it. The cue ball will again contact the cloth in front of the rack, leaving a burn mark.

Here's how I keep them to a minimum. Every few weeks, I change break ends. This is easy on a drop pocket. Kind of a pain in the ass for a ball return table. But it works.

Changing break ends, and with regular vacuuming, the break spots fade over time. So do the track marks from the back of the rack corner balls to the rear cushion. You can practically double your cloth life. Should do the same for the cushions.


Playing cue...OB17EMW OB1+ shaft.Everest tip
Playing cue...Predator Icon 1-1 ... 314-2 shaft
Morri hard tip
Playing cue...Viking Millennium (VM25)
Everest tip
Jump/break...Players S-PJB5

I've been to pool halls that required you to use break cloths on certain tables. Chris's here in Chicago has a couple of one-pocket-only tables - some good games on 'em most days.

Break cloths are a pain, but, to each their own.
Pat,
We enjoyed Chris's from 9 til CLOSE Wednesday night! Was awesome, wish you could have stopped by.

Substantially more. Like breaking off a mattress. On a bar table playing 8 ball, I like to break hard. Well goodbye cue ball if you use a pad.
