That's interesting. It does create a lot of friction so that makes sense. To be honest I love the 860hr cloth but I thought it was suppose to be more burn resistant. I got a bunch of marks and I don't break that hard and my balls are cleaned every 2nd or 3rd playing session.I got out the slow mo video to find out where all the marks were coming from since I wasnt hitting the cloth with my tip when jumping.
Turns out it was coming from the ball not the cue.
