How Fast Is Your Break? Break Speed Powered By Predator can tell you!

To use the app, set your phone on the rail and tap the screen. Now you're ready to break. Tap the screen once again after your break and the app will display your Break Speed speed.

Break Speed is more than 10x the accuracy of a radar gun and has become the standard for break shot speed measurements, privately and professionally. With such high precision, you can use Break Speed to provide that feedback you need to improve your breaks. Break harder and more consistently with Break Speed.

Don't worry about others breaking around you or other pool hall noise. Even shouting players won't fool our Break Recognition technology.

Find out why professional pool players are using and recommending Break Speed to others.

Our collaboration with Predator has been very effective. It's been great to work with a team that understands the science of billiards. The Predator R&D team has been testing the application along side their own speed measurement equipment and the Iron Willie robot, following a number of testing sessions, the Predator R&D team found the application so accurate that a partnership in pool science began.

"The application is really spot on. During my many testing sessions with the Predator Team there was very little deviation between the Predator testing equipment and the application," said Predator Pro Mike Dechaine.

If you're a serious player, and you don't have Break Speed Powered By Predator, what are you waiting for?

Nice but needs updates


I use this tool with BreakRak. Two tools for serious players wanting to improve.
The app states you can delete an outlier but it doesn't. I couldn't get it to delete all attempts even which previously I could.
Don't stop here, keep tinkering to make it a great app. Graphs, charts, forecasts would all be nice addition to a nice program.

Works as expected


Nice to see the difference in speeds. Occasionally doesn't seem accurate but i think it depends on the background noise too.

Overpriced, ugly but it works


$4.99 is far too high especially considering there's a huge Predator advertisement everywhere!

The design is pretty ugly, not extremely usable.

It does work though.
