Looks like it to me. I only recognize it because I had a 9' - they are Oak with Italian slate. They went for about $2,500 street price 9' in the pool table stores, retail was probably $3,000. It was...

Looks like an Olhausen, entry level model, 1990's or 1980's. Look for an oval plate mark on the foot or head rail.

I'm bumping this thread. This is rich knowledge and worthy of practice. Hopefully Dave will add to this. I would like to see more of the common multi rail bank safeties, not just blocking shots.

From what I've heard from Revo players, you will get used to sighting with the all black shaft. The 31" 5.1 shaft plays fine but eventually what I will have is a black 5.1 with an extension and I...

I just picked up a Cynergy to test. It plays fine. The red one is very attractive, somewhat more subdued and darker than in the pictures. Compared to my Becue with the beefy 5.1 shaft, it plays more...
