6 Racking Tips
Racking is one of the most critical elements of any game of pool. If your rack is too loose, it can affect the results of your break.
If you've ever hit a great break shot but didn't get the spread you were hoping for, your rack may not have been tight enough. Luckily, correcting your racking strategy is easy with a professional pool triangle rack and these six tips.
1. Keep the Billiard Balls Tight
It is essential to ensure the pool balls are tight within the rack. Once you get all the balls into the pool table triangle, make sure they touch and leave no space in between.
2. Place the Apex Ball First
The apex ball is the most important ball when racking because it is typically the first ball for most pool games. When racking, put the apex ball into the correct position before adding the remaining object balls.
3. Spin the Balls on the Perimeter
If your pool balls will not settle into position, you can try spinning the balls on the outer edge. Turning them will push the fibers of the felt outward and help the balls sit better.
4. Remove the Frame Properly
Use caution when removing the rack to ensure your billiard balls stay in the correct position. When removing, lift the billiard triangle rack upwards from the back end and slide the rack forward away from the apex ball.
5. Keep the Felt Clean
If your billiard balls do not stay still while racking, take a second to brush the table felt in the area where you're racking. Brushing the felt will help raise the cloth fibers and provide a better surface.
6. Take Care of Your Equipment
A worn triangle rack or pool balls that have lost their roundness can cause irregularities. Make sure your gear is in good enough shape to hold a solid rack before you play.
