Someone who must not be familiar with that automatic raise your bid to a specified maximum thing bid $125.00 outright when she could have got one for 109.00. Whats the regular retail on those things anyway?

If the seller threw in a couple of screw on tips, he might have sold more. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

According to the same auction, the gizmo retails for $169.90; therefore, dealer price should be around $85.00

Harold...The Sardo folks had several dozen at the L.A. Billiard Expo a year ago! They couldn't GIVE them away, even at $90! LOL Admittedly, the attendence was poor, at best, but the people who were there WERE poolplayers...and
NOBODY was buying!

One thing about Lou Sardo...you have to give him a lot of credit for supporting pro pool with all the added money they put into some of the mens and womens tournaments! I liken it to a philanthropist supporting their favorite charity, even though it may be nonprofitable, and/or insignificant to their overall bottom line! Hats off to Lou, Carmine, and the rest of the Sardo family (even though I personally don't care for the Sardo Rack)!

You cannot take anything away from Lou Sardo. He has done everything possible to promote this sport. He wanted us to have that perfect rack but nobody ever imagine the disaster it would cause.

I remember the price of this thing being in the $300 range but now, like you say, they can't even give them away!

Actually, I briefly considered bidding $1.09 each for the entire batch so I could melt them down and make something useful. On further thought, whatever I created would probably leave craters everywhere..... /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Don't mean to ask a stupid question, but as a newbie I wanted to know what the problem is with these gizmos....

The intentions of the Sardo Rack was to have a perfect rack for every game and most probably to stop Earl Strickland's wining on every rack. Balls connected to each other, as they are supposed to.

After a while, the Pro's figured out how to break and pocket a ball everytime, so the Sardo people, several promoters and TD's decided to move up the rack and spot the 9 on the head string, obviously disregarding the rules of pocket billiards where the first ball of the rack goes on the spot.

In addition to this, the Sardo racks creates dents on the cloth, where the balls rests thus creating another problem with the cloths on the tables.

This pretty much sums up the problems with the Sardo gizmo....
