COMBINATION SHOTS

Combination shots are allowed; however, the 8-ball can’t be used as a first ball in the combination unless it is the shooter’s only remaining legal object ball on the table. Otherwise, should such contact occur on the 8-ball, it is a foul.

  This states that you can only hit the 8 ball first if it's your only legal shot, meaning, you're shooting the 8 ball. Otherwise, as long as you hit one of your balls first, the 8 ball can be used in a combo.
