    Rail height

    Wondering if anyone had THE correct rail 'nose' height? I heard that it is 70% of the ball diameter. In this case 61.5mm. Would a higher nose cause the table to play shorter? I would think so. And how low can you go without risking the balls flying off of the table? Thanks for any input!! JJ
