Differences in how the pockets are cut - 10-25-2010, 01:04 AM

I don't know much about how the pockets are designed, but the tables where I play have corner pockets where the ball pretty much passes the pocket point, but will rattle back and forth as far into the pocket as deep as the ball can go.

For example, if you are 2 diamonds away and nearly frozen to the end rail, and you shoot to a corner pocket with speed, it's nearly impossible to make the shot. Shooting down the side rail, if you shoot with more than a soft stroke you absolutely can't hit the side rail or it won't go in.

It makes it especially hard shooting down the rail when you need to shoot with speed.

I watch many accu-stats matches and see shots that would not even be close to going in on the tables I play on. I even hear the best players at my pool hall complaining about the pockets, but in the end I think it might make you a better player.

I was just wondering if anyone else plays with pockets like this.
