With all this talking about jumping its making me mad that i cant.

Mind you iv tried and tried and read and read, but notting. People have told me that its all in the stroke, but i do have a good stroke people have complemented me many times over it.

I was just wondering if anyone had some hidden tips, b/c it makes me pissed and i get soo frustrated esspecially b/c i thought i had it once, but i realised my cue just sliped under the c.b and lifted it that way. anyways plz help somehow..

You may well have a good stroke but a jump stroke is different. Jumping IS throwing the cue. By that I mean your grip when you contact the c/b should be very very light. If not you trap the c/b between the tip and the slate/cloth. It may still jump to a fair degree but it skids first which is a no no when balls are close. I have no idea what your cue angle is or what your trying to jump but hold the cue very loose and don't tighten up when you strike the c/b.
