Review for 'Mike Massey's Advanced Series Ultimate Pool Challenge'
Purpose The second edition of the extremely fun and popular Ultimate Pool Challenge game offers 52 more challenging shots for hours of entertainment. In this new Advanced Series BCA Hall of Famer and World Trick Shot Champion Mike Massey challenges you and your opponents to master an array of shots that are sure to advance any players abilities. You can play this new deck of pool cards in the original or the new Texas Hold 'em version. User-friendly I’m still a huge fan of the concept of a deck of training cards and how simple and fun this can be. These cards can be played as easily or as challenging as you want them to be. Just draw cards and try the shots or follow the suggested game. Your choice. Comparison This is the sequel to the original Ultimate Pool Challenge game which was also a great product. Level Intermediate to Advanced I wouldn’t recommend this product for complete beginners. Appearance Again I love the packaging and the concept of a deck of cards! Each individual card is beautifully printed with full bleed with very clear illustrations on the table layout. Players can keep these cards in their pool case and take them anywhere. My students love them and it’s always a great one to pull out at my monthly clinics when we don’t have a specific agenda. Price / Value Retail price: $24.95 PoolDawg price: $19.95 Depending on what your objective is it may seem a bit pricey. However if you think of it as purchasing 52 drills or shots in the form of a small convenient deck of cards that can easily be carried around in your pool case then it could be worth the 20 bucks. Gripes My gripes are very minimal. Some of the illustrations and explanations are a bit vague. Perhaps many of the shots are left up to interpretation since this is the advanced version. Also the point value for some of the shots seems a bit off. Many of the extremely difficult shots were worth fewer points than some of the easier ones. Maybe this was built on Mike Massey’s strengths and weaknesses?
I would recommend this product to a friend.
