Laser Guided Pool Cue.


The Laser Guided Pool Cue. Man, there’s some serious laser action going on in the sporting world lately, isn’t there? Everywhere you turn little beady spots of light splashing onto cowering bits of equipment. Sheesh! So anyway this doozy will let ya out hustle Mr Newman hi’self, providing you’re allowed to walk out of the joint unaided at the end of it all. $49.95.

 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…


  • Great idea, but it will likely adversely affect the weight distribution of the cue, which are measured in ounces. The ad doesn’t say what weights are available for the cue (shipping wight 3 lbs?) Once that problem is solved, you may see them in pubs but I doubt it would be allowed for professional play.

  • Doesn’t make the least bit of sense. Lining up WHICH “perfect shot”? You hit the cue ball into another ball, intending it to go into a pocket. Which other ball does the cue think you’re aiming for? Which pocket? What about back-spin or top-spin or side? Maybe all it does is show you where on the cue-ball you’re aiming for? That’s no use. Plus, does the laser shine through the tip? Then how do you put the chalk on it? The whole thing looks ridiculous to someone who actually plays pool.

  • I think this is a brilliant idea. Assuming the tip is still traditional leather and it can still be chalked.

    I would use it to maintain a straight draw and have a perfect stroke. These are what I am always working on when I shoot pool.

    Obviously whether it arrives in where I intended is up to the 3 key factors : my competitive nature that day, my BAC and distractingly beautiful bar patrons.

  • The problem is not where to hit the ball, but the stright draw and action of the cue. But it is just as important to get the cueball at the next location. Otherwise it will not do any good if your next position stinks.

    To sink the other balls is relatively easy to learn. The hard part is to control the cueball, so that the next ball will be easy to sink as well.

    No laser can help with that…

  • I see where the price on this is 49.95 in the description but when I click on it I get to the one offered by Hammacher Schlemmer and listed for 129.95! I guess you are not really the dealer and will not sell it for 49.95? Or you are the dealer and in cahoots with Hammacher Schlemmer and are trying to stiff us for an extra 80 dollars!

  • this idea was mine and some who you got it,there is a law against you got it ,i dont know ,but i'm going to find out.
