hopefully by wed it should be here my dealer asked me if i wanted 860 or 760 , i chose 760 cuz of the more games that id would like to play ,does anyone have a prefrence? what do u like or prefer? the color is tourn blue , i thought the electric blue might be too strong on the eyes but i couldnt tell from the small sample on puter, i will be installing myself i have installed the cheapy cloth , i hope it goes smoothly...

The 760 is noticably faster, great for straight pool!

Yes it's faster but won't last as long. Its a 2 weave and 860 is a 4 weave.Thats why most rooms use 860.But if your just after performance 760 will spoil you. I really like the tournament blue color.I can see the balls much better.Your gonna have alot of fun. Don:cool:

I just put it on my table, and WOW, what a difference between the 860 and the 760, the balls don't stop rolling on the 760, really fast, some times I think to fast at times.

You will get a long time out of it on a home table. Keep it clean and your good to go.

I have 760 on my table and I love it. I enjoy straight pool the most and it is very nice. I honestly think it forces touch in your game since very little differences in your speed and english can get you out of line quickly. This is also very noticable playing one pocket.

If I had to do it again I'd be very happy with the 760 although I would be curious how some very tightly pulled 860 would play also.

I always stayed away from 760 cause I was afraid, and rightfully so, that I would never see it outside my home. I try to keep my home equiptment close to pool hall tables so I will have to adjest less. Same goes for the new rubber I put on. I really wanted to get the fast speed but I opted for the medium...

As far as balls go. Centenials and Arimith are made by the same company. Centenials cost more and are, supposedly, not machined as well... At least JoeRackem has that in one of his Ebay ads for the Super Arimith Pro sets...


Also, be prepaired for the table to change on you. New cloth always plays different for the first week or so. Skids on the second rail are real obvious. Draw shots are alot easier. And balls that should not fall tend to... Once it all settles in you will get a feel for what you are workingt with... The rail skid is the only real problem with new cloth...

I have 760 on my table and I did notice the skidding problem when it was still new. It actually is still new at only three weeks, except that I have played over 100 hours on it already.
