DESCRIPTION

What do pool players hate more than anything? Missing a shot. This is why Practice Pro was created. Practice Pro consists of a set of six pocket reducers and is used to improve aiming skills and sharpen accuracy.

It works by reducing the size of the pockets, therefore allowing less room for error. It also forces you to concentrate and be more accurate on every shot. This is the same principle that college and pro players apply in other sports such as basketball, where smaller rims are used in practice to improve a shooter's accuracy.

If you're serious about improving your game, this is the tool for you.

Specifications

Color: Black and Green
Use: Reduce your pocket size by 30% to improve aiming skills
Includes: 6 Pocket Reducers

  • 0.3 product Charles 2014-01-02" 1.0 5.0 4 I have a Brunswick table with 5'' very friendly pockets all around. The pocket pros reduce the size of each pocket to 3 1/2 inches. In my opinion the best way to use them is to either put in only one pocket pro and shoot into that pocket from many different places or set up a series of balls on paper holes and only put in the pocket pros on the necessary pockets and shoot the series over and over. Again in my opinion putting all of them in and trying to play a game would only be frustrating and counter productive. If you do the exercises I outlined you WILL find your accuracy increasing but you will need to do it often if you want the improvement to last. Do the exercises before a match until you are making the balls consistently.

  • 0.3 product Curtis Lloyd 2013-06-12" 1.0 5.0 2 I recently bought a used pool table and didn't get the pockets shimmed prior to it being completely put together. You can't tell what you need until it is finished and by then it is too late. Would have cost me for felt and recovering the entire table to get it shimmed. It is said that the corner pockets should be about 4 1/2 inches wide. About the width of two balls. Mine was two balls and then some. Since I play league and the pockets are very unforgiving at my pool hall I figure this would improve my game. Pros: I have to say it has helped in improving my game. The tighter pockets force me to have to put the ball down the center or deep in the pockets so they won't pop out. In that aspect it has helped. Cons: They don't stay stuck to the pockets. When I am playing there are always one or two that fall down constantly. I understand they can't stick like glue but they are always falling down and it is very annoying. As of yet I haven't had anyone else playing on the table at the same time. However when I do I am taking them down as it would be embarrassing for them to keep falling. Add to it that they are green not gray as the picture shows. My table is Olive green which the gray would have been a nice contrast. The standard green is not bad just not what was advertised. Also it seems they only make one size. If you don't have a nine (9) foot table they don't fit properly. I have an 8 1/2 foot table and they don't fit the side pockets at all. The corner shims are actually too short and don't go all they way out the tips of the pockets. The price wasn't bad so if you need them for practice they are fine. Just don't expect it to be the answer as they are not.

  • 0.3 product Nelson Brake 2012-12-21" 1.0 5.0 5 I bought this product for my friends that had recently bought a used pool table. THEY HATED IT AT FIRST! Now they appreciate the product for when they practice on a tough table at home... it makes pocketing balls seem easy when they play league pool or in tournaments. Sloppy pockets make for sloppy players. Great product.

  • 0.3 product Ken Cline 2012-02-27" 1.0 5.0 4 I enjoy a better game when the pockets are harder to make. The only thing I had problems with this product was the side pockets kept slipping out. I have a very expensive table cloth that's stretched tight and the springs would not hold on the pockets. No matter where I set the reducer in the side when it was hit the reducer would fly out. Sometimes it would just fly out on its own. I gave up and removed the side pocket reducers. It does make you learn to shoot for the center of the pockets each shot.

  • 0.3 product Dan Twing 2010-11-02" 1.0 5.0 4 Just got a set of these. My table has pretty wide pockets which makes it fun for the average player. But when I play league games the pockets a 1/4 to 1/2 inch smaller. These make the pockets tighter than most and are good to increase accuracy. They stay put. They do change the angle of the pocket sides so balls will bounce out and not deflect into the pocket. This just makes it tougher which is the point. Another thing that should be obvious but was not is that the spring that sticks up makes shooting out of the corner difficult to impossible. Not a problem for practice time but didn't think about this until I started using them. They do make you sharpen your aim and I do recommend them.
