My Rack of choice, but one note...
I played in a 10-ball league for 3 years that used this rack exclusively. Works amazing well. You can get the front ball EXACTLY on the spot, you can get the rack virtually exactly parallel to the foot of the table and the balls rack tight, tight, tight...UNLESS you have a set of cheap or mis-matched balls (which lots of pool halls do). When all the balls are not the same size an under-sized ball will not rack tight. This is the fault of the ball (not the rack) being too small so it just does not fit right. You only discover this using the Magic Rack because it is so precise and not subject to table irregularities.
Why should you care about a tight rack? The balls break easier, have better action and spread more consistently with less effort giving you a better chance at a run-out.
FYI: The set includes 2 racks. the triangle is for full racks like 8-ball, 14.1, etc. The other works for both 9-ball and 10-ball. Too bad you cannot buy just one or the other.
If your looking for a perfectly tight rack you have to get one of these. I know its a little pricey for it but you won't regret it. We have played over 200 to 300 games with it and it is still holding up just fine. A perfect rack everytime!!!! I should order another one just to have on hand for when this one finally wears out.
This is a great product to use. The racks forces all the balls to touch each other to make a tight rack.
However, I'm giving this 4/5 stars because supposedly when you receive the magic racks, you are to remove a plastic film off the racks. I did not see any instruction on removing anything, but I went to forums and players say that you do indeed need to. I still have not removed the films because
1) there's really no need to
2) it's too damn hard to remove them; there's no tab or anything to pull the film off
Next time there should be clear indication on what to do in the instructions instead of stating the obvious

Just wow, these are great! Keeps the rack super-tight with no need to check for slug-racks and intentional gaps. It does take a few tries to get quick with it, but there's no fiddling or tapping balls down to keep them frozen. The instructions are still reading that you need to, "remove the film", but there is none to remove so do not attempt this! Be prepared for far more action off the break, and much more consistent results.
Works great if you just use it as is
These racks work very well, the balls set quickly and the break response is excellent showing that the balls are all touching each other.
One small complaint is that the instructions that come with the racks tells you to peal off the protective plastic. I worked on doing just that for almost 5 minutes before giving up.
In the process of trying to separate the parts (I am still not sure that they even come apart) I slightly messed up the edge of the 9 ball rack. Rather than totally destroy it I decided to use it as it was.
In my opinion, there is no reason to try to separate anything, simply put it on the table and put the balls on it.
The plastic is so thin that unless the ball is barely creeping along and only going to roll an inch or less it does not affect the rolling ball.
Even if the ball is creeping I saw no influence on the roll after closely watching dozens of racks as my opponents broke.
