    Not only is the overhand technique better, its the only legal way to do the shot in many leagues. Many leagues have the rule: “No ‘scooping’ to jump the cue ball. Jump shots must be struck above the centre of the cue ball”.

    Great video, by the way. It’s very easy to learn from.

    @M4N1F3570R Like he said, at the end of the day, it’s preference and comfort.

    maybe if you are 5’6″ like this guy.. but try doing this as a 6’6″ guy.

    Very helpful. I just got a break jump cue and I haven’t spent any time learning how to jump, but I will definitely give this a go.

    One thing tho, I definitely wouldn’t do the splits attempting to get a low angle jump shot. I’d probably try the underhand method lol. I laughed out loud when you spread your legs so far to get low. But hey, if it works, that’s all that matters.

    Yo fredm4315, if you would like to get better in basketball, you ought to start following a actual training plan. I used widely known nba training program here at (50 inch vertical [dot] com). I didn t even tell this to my basketball teammates yet lol

    i like you video it help me i been doing the other method for years but i lke this one alot i been playing for 30 yrs now so i guess you can say a old dog can learn new tricks

  15. snakehead52 on September 15, 2011 at 2:21 am

    Awesome!! I am so happy I found this clip.
    I could never jump before but I just got finished successfully jumping the cue ball 20 times in a row. Amazing. And so easy. Very little power needed. Like he says, just a flick of the wrist. Important to hit just below center (1/2 tip) when looking down at the ball. Thanks again!!!

  17. GORDON49X on September 15, 2011 at 3:18 am

    Thanks for the good video. I have just got into trying jump shots and this has helped with the basics.

  21. willecue on September 15, 2011 at 5:00 am

    Hey Fred,
    Interesting video, I build cues and have just created a 5.62 oz. Dart jumping style cue that will go over a ball at 1mm of space between the balls.Nevel is the only guy I’ve personally seen jump a ball from that distance. This cue helps a normal person jump balls as close as a cube of chalk. If you see this send a reply to me at the ya-hoody, I’ll send a reply back quickly.

    thanx this was a very helpful video

  23. machinemen165 on September 15, 2011 at 5:34 am

    Brilliant instruction, I’m working on this and I’ve made a few good jumps and I don’t consider myself as a good player.

    Thanks a lot!

    Just wanted to comment on the phenolic tip that you mentioned; a lot of tournaments and leagues are banning the use of phenolic tips, so consider whether you will be playing in any before purchasing a new jump/break stick.

  25. poolshooter2007 on September 15, 2011 at 6:16 am

    One good advice to everyone, until you master this jump shot, use a piece of cloth (same thickness as table cloth) put it under the cue ball, to keep burn marks from your cloth, also, it would not hurt to cover the table precious wood work so when cue ball jumps up, it would not dent it.
    Again, i cannot thank you enough, i will pay you something when i win next match.
