easy, three balls between the fingers and one ball palmed aginst the balls with the thumb. how is it hard to figure out. kind of like when you first did the dirty deed, eventually you figure it out. practice

If you need an aiming system, you have no natural talent for the game. Sorry.

I have pretty small hands, sometimes I’ll get 4 if I grab them just right but if it feels a little risky I just go with the standard 3 grabs. 2 + 2 + 1 x 3 in a fist. If I get a 4th ball in there somewhere it changes the program

Well you’re close. The reason the British call it screw instead of draw is the courser the threads the further you can draw it. However finer thread allows for a more precise draw uh I mean screw back.

You two guys (you and Bob) are going to have a bunch of newbies all screwed up.

And here is the dumbest reason to master the dumbest answer to the dumbest question.

Once you learn this both hands, you can pick up 9 balls with the 9th held between the thumbs. Once you learn how to stack'em, you can dump the balls into a rack and have a ready to tweak 9 ball rack.

Guess I don't have to rack that often...

Never tried 4 balls, happy doing 3. Will try tomorrow for fun though.

Thank you. I can do it and I only have average size hands. I've been able to do that for so long that I can't remember when I learned how. Maybe it's because I've had to be a rack boy for so many players.

That said, I rarely grab four balls. It's just easier to grab three at a time, and only takes a couple of seconds longer to clear the ball tray. Mike Massey can grab five in each hand no problem, and hold nine balls in one hand on a bet. He has massive hands and Tarzan like strength though!

P.S. The only dumb question is the one you don't ask.

Now that the thread is elevated to a higher level, what do you do with an elephant with three balls?

Throw it another and get the giraffe at the plate. Everybody knows they can't hit an inside pitch.

I'd like to know how Jimmy Caras did his counting balls trick where he took 3 balls in each hand and rolled them up table and added them together before they hit the end rail.

A guy might be able to make a few pennies on that trick.
