You'll need an ultralight jump cue for this shot, whether it's a Chilton Flying Eagle, Dr. Popper, Jester, Skip Stick, something less than 6 oz and even down to 4 oz is preferable. It's almost like a masse shot, but you need lots of speed. Think of throwing the cue at the cue ball. Hit it at straight 6 o'clock with ~80 degrees of elevation. If you hit off to the side, the cue ball could make a turn after it lands. You can still catch the cue ball pretty thick; no need to be right at the edge, but letting go of the cue helps it bounce out of the way so you don't trap the ball. Start small and work your way up. Maybe throw a third rack underneath if you're really feeling lucky.
This is one of Jamey 'Sharpshooter' Gray's signature shots.
