Uh... for those of us who are utterly without clue, what is a "bar table"?

Go to www.vnea.com and check out their site. I'm sure they show a bar table there.

Most Bar tables found in Pool rooms are the oversized 7 footers. The playing surface is 5.5" longer and 3.5" wider than a normal 7 footer.

Most 'bar tables' r smaller than pool hall tables but that's not the main difference. It could be a 10' tabel & still be a 'bar table'. Replace 'bar' w/ 'coin'. A 'coin table' is different from a pool hall table because the cue ball has to be differnt to keep it from going where the object balls go when both of them go into the pockets. When a cue ball goes into a pocket it has to take a differeent route to get to the head of the table & not go where all the other balls go, which is locked up.This is done in several different ways. One was with what we called the mud ball. It was a larger than life ball that would not fit where the object balls would & would be re=routed to the head of the table. Others have metal in the ball and a magnetic system in the table actually pulls the ball in a different direction than the object balls. Hence, unlike a pool hall table, the coin cue ball is different in some way, bigger, heavier, or with a magnet or metal bar in them. Controlling the cue ball is completely & totally different on the 2 types of tables. So much so, that with ALL of the balls positioned exactly the same you might, no, you would have to shoot differently (if only speed wise) to get the 'exact' same position on the next ball. Believe me it is like 2 totally different games if U know how to control the cue ball. So much so, that where U might draw a ball on 'real' table U would shoot high & use 2 rails on a coin table. I hope this helps U even though it might sound unbeliveable but it's true. How else does the cue ball not go where all of the other ball go?

Don't ask Greg Sullivan of Diamond Billiards. He doesn't have a clue. Keeps telling me Diamond only makes four sizes of "pool" tables. Small (3.5 x 7), medium (4 x 8), large (4.5 x 9) and extra large (5 x 10). Must be a bar box in there somewhere !
