I read its even possible to set up diamonds k55 cushions on a different profile table, like a common american heritage, Just "a lot of work". But saving 4500 for a used table sounds like more work... if I can get a good hardwood 3 piece slate table for 200, buy the simonis 860, then the better cushions, and have it professionally set up it will still be in my 1k range, will it not make a comparable playing table?
The answer is no. I owned an American Heritage table. If you are serious about having a good playing table stay away. Spending the money on cloth and cushions won't do anything to improve the quality of the frame and slate bed. If it's the only thing you can afford then so be it but I think you might be better off buying a decent bar box like a Valley and upgrading that.
