So, you’ve got a pool player on your gift list and you have no idea what to get them? If you’re looking to get the biggest bang for your buck on your gift giving, these are three excellent low-cost gifts for the pool player in your life.
First of all, we’ve got The Magic Rack. The Magic Rack is one of those awesome “why didn’t I think of that” type inventions. It’s essentially a small, plastic shape that is laid directly on the pool table. The pool balls are then placed directly on the Magic Rack, thus forming a perfect rack without the need for an actual wooden rack. This is a superb gift since it’s lightweight which means it’s cheap to ship to your recipient, easy to use so they won’t have to read any instructions, and it’s one of those things that most players don’t typically buy for themselves (but they almost always want one).
Next up is a set of Pocket Reducers. These particular reducers are from Practice Pro. Pocket Reducers are portable plastic devices are designed to fit right over the pool table pocket and reduce the overall width that a ball has to make it into the pocket. The idea here being to reduce pocket size and, thus, increase the accuracy needed to make your balls. If you know a pool player who’s always looking for ways to improve their game, a set of Pocket Reducers is an excellent choice.
Finally, we have a Pro Cup Cue Ball. This ball looks identical to any other cue ball with one exception; there are precision red dots dispersed over the surface. The goal of the dots is to give the player an idea of how the the ball spins after it has been struck. This is another great device for the pool player who’s always practicing at improving their game.
