Im looking at pool tables, and its crazy how many color choices there are out there. I like the blue, what color is your favorite? least favorite?

Even though I voted for the green and dark green looks best---since I am a senior citizen the tournament blue seems to highlight the ends of the balls better.

while Im not a senior citizen yet, I too feel that I can see the balls better on the blue.

There may be a lot of color choices in bed cloth, but if you are a pool player there are really only two choices: green or blue. How often do you see any other color in a pool a hall? Not very.

All the other colors are really only there for home applications in order so wifey can match the drapes.

I can say that I never thought I would like anything better than green until I played on blue felt. I've played on greens, blues, red, tan and black with blue being by far the best color to use.

I feel the same way. The light blue is the best for eye sight to the object ball.

Pool tables have green cloth. That's the way God intended it. :groucho:

I'm normally a traditionalist, but I go with the light blue because it has better contrast with the balls and you can see better.

A well lit table, with blue cloth is hard to beat in my opinion. I can see the balls so much better, especially the darker balls, 2,4,6, and 8 when they are close to the rails.

I loved the green cloth because it was in every pool room/bar I would frequent. The TV Blue is the NUTZ and I sinced divorced the green and started a torrid love affair with the blue!!

Voodoo~~~still sick, 44 yrs later

If that was true, then slate would be green and worsted.

There's actually different shades you can get of each colour, too. It's crazy how many options there are. I personally prefer Tournament Blue. It's so much easier on the eyes.

In our small poolhall we use powderblue cloth. This is the cloth that has the best contrast to the balls and what I prefer to play on. And it looks good.

For many years "regulation green" was the only color I thought a pool table should be covered with. Many years ago a pool hall trying to appeal to the young crowd put in every color available, from black to light tan and everything in between. Blue and the lighter green were OK, everything else I hated.

My eyes aren't what they once were and I strongly favor blue now. I played on a green covered table last trip just to see how I played on it and things were OK but I am used to blue now.

I've always preferred "old fart green" (sometimes called "regulation green"), simply because that's all that pool tables had for many years and it's what I was used to. To me, anything else looked like something that should be in a "family fun center" instead of a pool hall. But now, with the eyes getting worse by the day, the next recover will be with blue.

I really like the the blue/green that Diamond used on their original tables. It was easier to see the balls on that cloth and it made the tables very distinctive looking.

I use the tournament blue in my room, everyone likes it, it just shows the dirt and chalk so much. Im going to let the customers vote blue or green next recovering.

I'd be so anal I'd make sure they were cleaned at the end of every day. Maybe multiple times a day lol

Oh, and I hate any shade of red on a table.

pool table cloth has always been green and should stay that way.

Call me old fashion. But Green is my favorite. Black would be my least favorite.

Looks like the results are pretty evenly split. Im just worried that if I get blue cloth at home, which I want, that it will be hard to adjust at the green felted pool hall. Anyone else do this?

I think lighting is harder to adjust to than cloth color. Get the color you want man.

Chalk up another vote for "old fart green", but Tour Blue is
catching on mighty fast and I don't mind playing on it at all ...
