    Cyclop Balls in pool halls

    I found that Cyclop tend to crack in a commercial environment. I own a 14 table pool hall with Cyclops provided by Diamond. Seven of the 1-Balls and one 2-Ball developed cracks and a chip came off of one of those. I’ve been waiting 3 months for replacements. On a positive note they still look...

    Cyclop Balls Suck read on

    I got 14 new sets of Cyclop March 2015. All was well until I had to replaced the eyeball cue balls with red dots due to cracks at my own expense. All was good again until 7 of the 1-balls and one of the 2-balls developed cracks. I called Diamond and have been waiting for replacements for three...

    Brunswick Ball return Box

    Are all late model (not an antique) Brunswick return boxes the same? In other words will a GC box work on a Medalist?

    I'm not a mechanic so lets not shame me for coming here. This is kinda long but I figured y'all needed a good laugh. I agreed to help a friend "recover" his boss's table. I get there and its too late to back out after I find out its a T-Rail of unknown origin. I told the boss he should have...

    8-Foot Diamonds

    I've asked a similar question on the room owners forum so I hope this doesn't get dumped ... but how many 8-Foot Diamonds have you Mechanics seen in Pool Halls. Private homes don't count.

    Diamond Smart Tables achilles heel

    Almost a year ago I sold the Valleys out of my Pool Room and got all Diamond Smart Tables. This resulted in very happy customers. They play better than the Valleys but they have a quirk. In one word "chalk". Most of the time a small brush on the end of a long handle through the rack slot or...

    Simonis Spots

    I don't have to have Simonis spots but Diamond wants $2 each and Pool Dawg wants 95¢. I replace spots a lot so I'll probably order plain spots from Cue & Case, 100 ~$7.00. Is there a source for Simonis spots I haven't found?

    Shout Out for a Diamond crew

    Josh and Brandon from Diamond did an excellent job of delivering and setting up 18 Smart Tables this weekend. They responded to any resonable request with a positive attitude. If you are planning on getting Diamonds ask for Josh and Brandon to deliver.

    Diamond Smart Table Maintenance

    I've got a good handle on keeping 14 old Valleys up and running. I've repaired ESDs and drop mechanisms, cleaned tracks and aligned magnets, etc.. I've decided its time to upgrade. What can I expect from Diamond Smart Tables?

    Room Owner's observation ... Simonis 860 vs Championship Tour Edition

    We've had our 14 tables covered with Simonis 860 in May. We had been using Championship Tour Edition before, recovering once a year. Already the 860 is not holding up as well as the Tour Edition and that is during the slow summer months. We may not make it a year. The Simonis site purports...

    I'm not a mechanic ...

    but I finally got tired of covering friends tables for free. So after 4 years and 2 dozen tables I made my first few dollars covering a 7-foot Valley in a private home. I used 3M-10 and Championship Tour Edition. I tightened and/or replaced missing casting bolts, vacuumed out the table, cleaned...
