I like it but I think the 5 looks better. The 6 with its teardrop corner castings, looks like the 2000's Ford Taurus, with all of its ugly ovals all over the car.

I msg'd. them via FB. They said drop-pocket version didn't have a storage slot. I sent them those pics of the Japanese market 6's and am waiting for response. The way Bruns. answer was worded i'm not sure if the person on the other end was sure either way. We'll see.

Apparently, that's the new Diamonds, only. That's all. I've become a BIG skeptic about table manufacturing.

Nice looking table, though, isn't it?

I think they are curved. Look at the last two pics on the Japanese site link. Not as bad as the Metro, but still curved a bit (unless an optical illusion).

They look straight on Brunswick site but the photo angle could be funny. Not much of a curve if so. Still trying to figure if drop-pocket has ball rack. Those Japanese tables look like it but Brunswick is telling me otherwise. I guess we'll know soon enough.

12k was with certain options. Like tournament addition and ball return etc.

It was confirmed in the bruswick interview that the table does slightly curve inwards towards the ends of the table. Itís supposedly slight.

You would think they could sweep the floor before they took pictures.

I am sorry but this VI does not look good to me. The wood colors etc look cheap. The drop drown casting are however growing on me. The rest of it I can certainly live without. It just has a cheap look to it.

I got my GC IV used..... been pretty unhappy with the castings (?). The metal pieces that surround the pockets. Yes the flush pockets are nice, but damn, those casting are all coming up so you cant shoot off the top of the castings unless you use a bridge to keep your cue from scraping on the castings.


Maybe mine is a fluke.... or maybe it was just taken apart and put together one too many times, but either way, I will be staying away from GC's in the future.

Really makes the GC V look like the one to get between the two choices. I assume they will stop making the GC V now that the VI is coming out.

Are you saying that all tables, with the exception of Diamonds, are designed in such a way that if it's taken apart after the first installation, the second set - up will produce a table that has a lessened quality of playability? Where are they discussing this?


.........but oh - OH....those su - UMMER.......nigh - IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHTS...........❤️
