    Pool Experts Bruce Barthelette and Andy Segal demonstrates the pool trick shot, spinning rack.

    Andy Segal: Hi! I am Andy Segal.

    Bruce Barthelette: And I am Bruce Barthelette. And we are here for trick shots with partners. Andy Segal: Now we are going to show you the Spinning Rack shot. Now obviously we have a special device here which is the spinning rack. Now you are not going to have a rack like this so what you can do is, if you could just stand the rack up on a little block of wood to practice this shot on your own before you go to the expensive building a prop like this.

    What we are going to do is we are going to be jumping the 8 balls together at the same time through the opening into the opposite corner pockets and then doing the same thing for the 9 ball. Now you have to be careful, because you want to make sure the balls are offset enough so you don't jump into each other. And again this shot is for the advanced players. The beginner, just have fun with it, be very careful, because as the balls are coming at you, they could be going a little quickly and you want to make sure that you stay safe. Bruce Barthelette: Okay, one of the things you have to remember too, a little tip for your shooting jump shots. To shoot a legal jump shot, you have them down on the ball which makes it go up. So the thicker the slate is on a table, the easier is to jump. So it's just a poking motion, hit down, hit hard, and that's what will make the ball jump and go into the corner pocket.

    Let's do it. And that's a Spinning Rack shot. Well, we hope you enjoyed the shots. With a lot of practice you can become proficient of these shots yourself and who knows, if you get good enough, we will seeing you out on the tour. Andy Segal: Thanks for watching.
