    • These are easily my favorite training tools because they provide immediate feedback on stroke accuracy and with the included object ball show the effects of throw on cut shots and transfer of spin.

      Chalk marks show up very well on the cueball's stripe, letting you know how close to your intended contact point you actually hit and raise your awareness of exactly how true you shoot.

      The set also includes a carrying pouch and an instruction book that takes you through some simple exercises to improve your game and see what's really going on with those shots you have trouble with. It takes a little time to get used to setting up the cueball's stripe correctly but this also encourages you to take your time on the shots so you can learn the most from them.

      I would definitely reccomend these to anyone looking to play better, no matter their skill level.

    • 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.

    • In Soviet Canada, this keeps my shaved skull from freezing. I found it a little long but it's quite warm. During tournaments where they often keep the room cold it also helps keep you comfy between sets and looks good at the same time.

    • I've found this to be much better than the regular Masters and certainly far above Silver Cup. I layer it with Kamui chalk and find the combination works very well for reducing miscues even with very hard and/or phenolic tips. It does seem to be very gritty but that was what I was looking for. I will continue to spoil myself with this more often.

    • I didn't have high hopes for this product, but thought I might give it a try. I do strip and reseal my shafts fairly often to keep them clean and playing smoothly so this seemed to be a good experiment. I don't even have to wear a glove anymore with this wax, it keeps everything slick and there's no buildup to deal with. As was mentioned before, but bears repeating:

      - Clean the shaft as usual (for me a Magic Eraser, then a Q-Wiz (both sides))
      - Apply the wax with a soft cloth and let it haze
      - Wait a few minutes and buff it off
      - Run all night
