Choosing the Right Pool Table for You


There is something to be said for buying the right pool table. Buying a pool table is really similar to buying a car. In many ways, you can associate the entire billiard industry with the automobile industry. Surprisingly, how many lessons our pool table manufacturers and retailers can learn from the o-reliable car industry. There are dozens of different manufacturers in different countries. Next, you should choose where to buy your pool table. Will you decide to buy from an authorized dealer or a small timer in your garage? In it, you will notice that there are several different designs and sizes. There are various options in the raw materials from which it is made. Moreover, you should decide which options you need to decide, including stains, fabric, landscapes and accessories. Will you get new or used? And the list goes on and on.

The new purchase proposal is always the best. Why is that? For a moment, forget about different qualities and brands. Now consider the disadvantages of buying a really new pool table. There is only one real drawback, the price. If you are considering buying a pool table and are only motivated by price and price; then it may be best for you to settle for something that is used only. However, if you can wait, now if you can take some time to slow down the buying drive; you will realize that you will give you all the advantages of new purchasing. Remember that there are many brands and quality. You abandon customization, quality, belt transition, warranties and guarantees. Need something more? Obvious.

Buying a pool table is a huge expense. Whether it’s for a used or a retailer’s stock, you don’t just have to settle for less. You won’t settle for the car you don’t want because it’s not cheap, right? Maybe, but you know what you want. You know what you love. Create and be part of the process. This will be something you can transfer to your kids’ children. However, there are certain situations in which it may make more sense to purchase stock inventory or used products. Just know what’s right for you.

Ok, then what is the best pool table available? This is open to discussion. Over the years I have worked on almost everything and saw. Some are great, others are firewood. In general, I suggest you buy something made in the United States, use a flooring in construction and include a Brazilian or Italian slate in a three-piece form.

As a side note: Chinese paintings are not good. Slate from China is not good. If you think slate is just slate; then say that you need to buy new parts that make the mistake of purchasing them and cost more money than frame rebuilding, slate replacement and new parts pay for the whole table brand new. Chinese slate does not allow to be stiff and stretchy, so it easily cracks and breaks. Their pool tables are produced by spraying stains and surfaces on the series and “line”. Of course they look great. They can even play well for a short time, but this finishes cracks and cheap forests used, warp. It doesn’t take long for this to happen.

There is also a difference between what is done in the USA and what is done in the USA. There are many government companies alleged in the US but actually only gathered here. I am not buying from such a person. Do research, talk to the right people and train yourself. I can list many American manufacturers for you, but this will move away from the value in product research. Let’s try to remember that this is more than a process of impulse buying.

One-piece slate tables are dated for the home. The bars are nice, but that’s not what you want in your home. Who wants to move first? Nobody knows. Second, they cannot achieve the level of precision that the three-piece slate table can take. With the general leveling, one piece slate and three pieces slate, all you get is not only giving you this, but also adds a fine adjustment element that will keep this level longer and resist bending.

Finding the right manufacturer and retailer will take some time. Find the ones that best suit your budget and, more importantly, your needs. The internet can give you an idea, but you should get there and see the product. Do not hurry. Find out what’s best. Remember, your money.

Size and style is entirely up to you. There’s nothing anyone can do here to influence them. How much room do you have? This will help you measure what size fits in your existing home. But consider this carefully. Remember that we act as Americans often. What might fit your existing home may not fit in your next home. What decor do you have and offer in your home? Does a traditional look, contemporary design or tournament style suit you and your home? There may be options on the billiard table from the legs, frame (with belt, no belt, double belt) and rail edges (guided, straight, scalloped). All this should be taken into account. Go there and look at them!

There are more common types of trees used to make billiard tables. Often you will see chipboard, poplar (or tulip), oak (white or red), hard white maple, hickory, walnut, mahogany or other exotic wood with veneers and laminates. There are tables made of marble, car parts, metal and other strange materials. However, your standard hardwood trees will be oak or maple for most traditional models, and usually a laminate will be used in your modern tournament-style corner tables. Rule of thumb: stick to the standard forest and go up.

Which of these are important to you? Which is not? Generally, your domestic hardwoods will last very long. Another important note on “hardwoods” is poplar technically considered hardwood, but most do not recognize it this way. It is soft and bends easily even if you press it together in layers. Don’t be fooled by the salesperson. All tournament style tables are made of chipboard wood with a high or low quality laminate. Don’t keep this from buying you, because the particle isn’t that good. Not, but some good branding brand stuff makes a good picture.

There are many different stains and varnishes these days. The stain is basically the color they make the wood, the finish is what it is for protection and shine. Stain colors range from natural and light colors to dark and black. Coatings will usually be available in just a few different options, matte, semi-gloss and high gloss are the most popular. These two items are about your personal wishes and decor. Especially check all of your fabric color options.

It is no longer the days of traditional green fabric. There are dozens of colors right now, and you’re not limited to the greens and blues of the past. There are, however, different types of fabric. They will fall into two types: woolen and worsted.

Woolen cloth or nap cloth is standard in home and leisure cloth. Most retailers include this type as a standard cloth when purchasing a table. Unless the owner is cheap, you will very rarely see a pool room. This cloth is usually a mixture of nylon and wool. It is also sometimes referred to as a nappy, because it has micro fibers that resemble carpet. Professionals stay away from this gland, because they do not pull the slate tight for less speed and accuracy, they tend to make pills, the balls enter the grooves and “move”.

Worsted fabric is also a similar blend with much higher wool content. This thing is the best of the best. It is flexible enough to flex the game to incredible tightness that is consistent enough to allow professionals to maintain their positions throughout the game, giving extreme accuracy and speed. His brother is pill and tear like wool and is heavy and durable, extending life in most scenarios. If there is extra cash, take it! Don’t be lacking in fabric, but know that it’s really just a real manufacturer, and other worsted wool brands are just cheap knockouts.

Landscapes come in many different materials and styles. You’ll see round and diamond-shaped landscapes made of plastic, mother-of-pearl, abalone and metals like brass and chrome. You can have different colors for them or look at them with double diamonds. The most common double diamond style will consist of a mother of pearl sight surrounded by abalone. This gives a pool table a completely different look and feel.

Then we come to the accessories. They are what they are, and most of the time you will receive a kit that comes directly from China and usually sucks from your desk. Still, it’s okay because these are starting items. Naturally, you want the best you can get with the purchase, but don’t let a man tell you that his desk is better because he has better accessories. Once you learn the game and get more involved, you will appreciate and understand the value of upgrading the equipment over time. Personally, if the balls are not Aramith and the tips are not good in the American; then I don’t want them. However, they get expensive and get the feel for the game, and better equipment is not as much required.

The last thing you need to mention when looking for the perfect pool table is warranties and guarantees. Why is this important? Simple, if the manufacturer does not support the product for a lifetime and a retailer does not support their work with a lifetime warranty; then how good is the product and service provided. Do you remember this generation transition? How can you expect this if the producer and seller don’t even believe in their products? It is difficult to find the right manufacturer for the dealer combination, but they are there. If you can’t offer these two simple things, then you shouldn’t be at work. Forget them.

If the brand is right, call the manufacturer and tell them you want their products without the involvement of retailers and tell why. If the retailer is correct and the brand is wrong then you may need to search for other options or find another brand.

This is all about you and this is an insight for your analysis. After all, you are the one to decide what is right for you in brand, cost, quality and style.
