The video on the site was absolutely useless. Would have liked to seen a closeup of the device in action.

So it levels off the chalk again?

I'm amazed that someone even thought of making this product.

How about just walking outside and rubbing the chalk on the sidewalk like I've been doing for years?

Completely useless. What does chalk look like when done?

That's too obvious.

On a similar thought. When I worked at the BCA offices in Co. Spgs when they first moved from IA, these items/objects/inventions/people would show up ''here and there'' with their newests' and bestest's products/inventions. The one that ended up ''staying'' in the office, but never used was the infamous ''Rack Around''.

A plastic template that would rack all 15 balls in a circle, start with the cue ball in the middle.

This Chalk Gimmic/invention/''thingie''....what ever you wanna call it may be a sign that the NON pool playing minds are getting involved/intrigued in our game and they are trying to '''jump on board'' get on the ''Sardo'' mind ship, that will change the game forever. Even the FIRST Gen. Diamond 9' tables, were the worst. The K55 profile GONE....next 80's/90's the cloth went from Grass (nappy) to FAST miniature golf type conditions (billiard cloth blend/weave). That's a good thing. Those are the only True changes I've seen in 50. House cues got cheaper wood, if its wood. Table lights got allot better. Pool players tho, are the same, no matter where you go.

Hate to knock innovative ideas and the time, money and effort involved...but, get the same results (and if not quicker) from my old-school tip pick/chalk shaper (for about $.50 forty years ago). Just a bit more convenient and portable than the sidewalk.

Not sure I need that but If they support a Pro tournament, I think it’s the new next best thing.

So that's where those blue streaks come from outside the 'hall.

I'm not planning on one either. Its definitely aimed at those who go for the $25 chalk gaff. I get free Master at the ph. When it gets a lil deep i chuck it. No file, no gizmo, no nothin. Just reload.

Not being a judge of such things WHAT was so bad about it? You a ad producer of some sort? I've seen a lot worse/cheesier ads before. I doubt they sell 10,000 of these things but i've been wrong before.

It was not close in enough to see anything of value...that's what.

I like gadgets (or maybe I should say specialty tools), but I think I am going to forge on with my life without owning one of these. If I did even have this need (I don't), I'd play a piece of sandpaper on a table and rub it around a few times.
