    Operation: Bar Box Rescue

    Everyone has green or blue, and i wanted something different. The table i grew up playing had orange cloth, so i gravitated to it out of nostalgia... In the end, it paired up well with the colors of the table, and the room. With the first break, one thing became very clear... Blue chalk must...

    Operation: Bar Box Rescue

    I can't handle the smell. and i have to live here... Over the summer, i walked into a gas station where they were doing a fish fry... I immediately ran back outside and vomited. Also, the band is "Quarterback", because we're 5 times as good as the original, but only 25% as good as a good band...

    Operation: Bar Box Rescue

    the valley tables support both magnetic and oversized "mudballs". My buddy's dad (previous owner) swore up and down that there were no magnets in the table... should've seen his face when i dropped a magnetic ball in, and it was separated correctly. The sound of the balls vending is my favorite...

    Operation: Bar Box Rescue

    I was rather impressed by the customer service at Penguin. They contacted me with a million questions, to ensure i was actually ordering the right thing. very quick to respond.

    Operation: Bar Box Rescue

    update: after a bit of trial and error, my table has been restored to Coin Operation, set for free play. Purchased a new ball trap directly from Valley, as the original went MIA many moons ago. Had to do some tweaking, as the last ball, sometimes gets hung up. the biggest challenge ended up...

    Extra cue balls - Valley owners

    I wanted a purple, but my local shop only had greens, and i didn't want to wait for shipping. it plays fine with my dynaspheres, but I have to clean it a lot. chalk sticks to it so bad, it looks 20 years old after only a handful of games.

    Extra cue balls - Valley owners

    That's interesting. wonder if they worked some sort deal with a distributor? i've never seen a set commercially that included one. Honestly, i prefer the ball to return at the head end. my table was "converted" many moons ago, and i'm currently working to "un-convert" it. the sound of the...

    Best balls under $100

    This thread specifically asked for sets under $100 the bronze are nearly 100 more than you can find the tungstens, and for that price, why wouldn't you just get aramiths? Also, i already have a set of aramith crowns... i don't need another set that looks exactly the same.
