Leather is used for the cue tip, and pool chalk is used to provide more friction against the cue ball. Pool chalk is an abrasive using materials found in sandpaper. It is not a form of chalk.

What does drake mean by bet he felt that like the end of a pool cue?

i thought it had something to do with the blood crib line before, end of a pool cue is blue... Edit By Blackjakal: I actually made an account for this. Drake used the word "felt" as a double meaning.

Can you hit backwards on 8 ball pool?

Yes, and having the cue ball spin backwards is called draw. It is one of the most important early skills to learn for shooting pool. This is done by striking the cue ball slightly below center and accelerating the cue as you stroke through the cue ball. With practice a draw stroke can easily go 2 full table lengths including the bank at one end.

Where can you get your cue weighted?

Most cues are made to be adjustable. The weight bolts are changed, added, or removed as needed from the butt end of the cue. Remove the rubber bumper from the butt end of the cue. If there is a weight well, then your cue is adjustable. If there is no weight well, then I would recommend you have a cue maker or cue repairman determine if your cue can be made adjustable.
