Portland, TN: Pool Tables
Solids or stripes? That is the question. Whether you’re an expert-level pool player or not, every pool player has their favorite. Whether you’re solids or strips, it really doesn’t matter… What matters is how well you play the game and the table you’re playing on.
You may know that your playing abilities matter but you might be sitting there scratching your head at why the table you’re playing on should matter… Well, it matters because all pool tables are NOT created equal.
You may not realize it or even pay attention to it but the way a pool table is constructed is one of the most important considerations to think about when playing pool, but especially when making a pool table purchase.
You may walk into a typical pool table supplier and see pool tables with metal brackets and fringe… you know, with all the seemingly “bells and whistles.” But at all costs, you want to avoid tables with big metal brackets in the corners of the frame. You also want to be wary of quad-center bracing. A well-made pool table won’t use quad beam construction because they simply don’t need it.
Another aspect to look at is the finishings on various pool tables. High-quality pool tables are made from true solid hardwoods like maple and oak, so if you find yourself looking at pool tables with painted finishes that hide the actual wood of the table, you need to continue your search because that billiard distributor is hiding the fact that the table isn’t solid hardwood.
A solid hardwood pool table should have nothing but a stain that allows the real beauty of the wood to shine through. As far as the cushions for your table, you want to make sure they’re warranted for life. So if your cushion dry rots, it should be replaced at no cost.
