View Full Version : Proper racking

I was thinking about racking and how some players take it for granted and it lead me to a question... Is there a proper trick or technique to racking the balls tightly?

I'm not sure if this is the best way, but here's how I do it. I push the balls firmly against the head of the rack, find the spot where the 1 ball settles, and instead of lifting it up as fast as I can like I see a lot of people do, just slide the rack slightly forward so there's a little space all around, then lift up. If they don't hold, just barely move it to another spot.
