Doesn’t matter where things are made.
What matters is it correct, is it quality, is it a fair price.

Yes, Brunswick Superspeed are the best for GC’s.

NO, it does matter. Back when the GC3's came out they changed supplier and the cushions were horrible. With all the upheaval at Brunswick i'm just curious as to who makes their cushions now.

You would have read RKC’s response.

“I like installing Superspeed cushions on GC'S as that's their cushions in the first place. Just became the superspeed cushions had some product issues in the early to mid 80's, that don't mean they're bad cushions now and should be avoided today.”

“If the Diamond or MBS cushions cost more that superspeed cushions, no one would buy them, so that's the real reason for installing them, save some money and put it in your pocket, i personally like Brunswick cushions on Brunswick pool tables.”

Unfortunately its not that simple. The rails need a little modification to properly accept the new cushions. Other than that super speed.

Thanks for info BUT still doesn't answer my question: does anyone know where Brunswick/LifeFitness, whatever they're called now, has their cushions made?

I did a number of searches but most pointed me towards a retailer.

I also looked on the Brunswick site....Nada.

Try This......
You could call Brunswick direct or one of their authorized dealers and ask.

BTW.....It looks like Brunswick is selling off their fitness section.

But then....further down it reads that Billiards is also for sale?

Bruns. Billiards has been part of Brunswick Corp's LifeFitness division for a while now. KPS Partners now owns it. What they do with it is anybody's guess. They could put $$ into it, upgrade its worth then sell it(likely) or just shut it down(also likely).
