    GC IV Side Pocket Issue

    Hello, I have a Gold Crown IV that kicks balls out of the side pockets if not hit dead center and at slower speed. I believe the issue is that the rails were lengthened causing the pocket rubber to push out, causing the balls to spit out. I'm curious of the recommended solution to this...

    Purchasing a used Gold Crown, what to look for?

    Well just got back from looking at the table and pretty sure it is not a GC3 but a GC4. There is no Brunswick emblem on the rail top, it has flush pockets and what look to be levelers under the table for the slate. I went ahead with the purchase and now will just arrange somebody to dismantle it...

    Purchasing a used Gold Crown, what to look for?

    Purchasing a used Gold Crown, what to look for?

    Hello, looking for advice on what to look for to ensure a table is in good condition..slate, legs, apron, etc. I have made an offer on the table and when I go and look at it need to know if its worth the money ($2300) or not. I'm not sure of the age but guessing it is either a Gold Crown 2 or 3.

    Jacoby Soft Hit, What others?

    I recently tried a buddies new Jacoby (HB4T) with the Ultra shaft and loved how soft the hit was. To ensure it wasn't just the shaft I tried the Ultra on my Dishaw and it softened the hit slightly but nothing like when its on the Jacoby butt. I have owned a OB1 in the past and found it way too...
