Been saying this for years. I also compare it to golf. Swinging the club harder is not going to make the ball go farther. Club head speed makes the ball go farther. Swinging hard tenses up the muscles and it is harder to swing smoothly.

Same with the break shot in pool. Tip speed and hitting the center of the cueball while also hitting the head ball in the rack square, will result in a good break.

Oh and keep everything still except that arm delivering the cue. Any movement can cause you to hit the cueball off center.

Unless of course you have an 750+ Fargo like the pros who ALWAYS hit the cueball where they intend to.

When you are breaking, it's most important to hit the center of the cue ball. This is one key component of generating speed and action on the rack. If you're hitting with too much power, you will have inaccuracies and hit the cue ball off-center. This will prevent the cue from transferring all the energy to the cue ball. The cue ball will not only have less energy but also deflect off the line, due to the applied side spin. You won't hit the first ball on the rack dead-on. This will once again fail to transfer 100% of the energy to the rack. Therefore, a less powerful attempt can make you more accurate, and at the same time, generate more energy at the rack.
