If You are beginner pool player, You’ll find this useful: Laser-Guided Pool Cue will help You to hit the ball correctly. At the end of the cue stick there is a laser that points to the ball for accuracy shots.

This is the first laser-guided regulation-sized pool cue. When activated, the harmless visible laser provides a precise guide for lining up the perfect shot with pinpoint accuracy. The touch sensor on/off switch features both manual and automatic shut-off to preserve battery life. The set includes a 58″ two-piece cue with a secure microfiber grip and an aluminum joint and ferrule, in addition to two tip scuffers, two chalks, three replacement leather-tipped ferrules, and a hard-side, zippered nylon carrying case with shoulder strap and accessory pocket.

Golf a good walk ruined, unless of course you have a remote-controlled golf ball, and then it’s hilarious. Just as your partner reaches their backswing apogee (or whatever it’s called) you set the ball trundling off the tee! It’s exceedingly stupid and great fun.

The ball has a little spinning gyro in it, and when you activate it from the remote it spins off in random directions. The acceleration varies depending on the ground, and due to its small size it obviously works best on smoother surfaces such as green and tees. All you have to do is make sure you’ve completely charged the golf ball in its neat little charging cradle, switch on the transmitter, and select the frequency band shown on the ball.
