Brunswick Superspeed Cushions - 07-25-2017, 04:34 AM

Has the quality gotten any better with the Brunswick Superspeed Cushions? I'm needing my cushions replaced on my Brunswick table.

It is believed so, yes.


So keep your nose clean keep it on a shoe string
With no opposing no undue disclosing
Nothing stale nothing old or decomposing
Nothing empty nothing bold or over knowing
Nothing more than tasteful reconstruction
Of the plot that edifies all our instructions
It's on the goodness of our dime that you can function

Question: Are there better cushions available for a Brunswick than Superspeed's?

If you feel your k55 table is slow with superspeeds, and yours dont feel dried out, the diamond k55 (diamond black? Black diamond?) Cushions do play a bit faster than superspeeds and are cheaper too, IIRC.

Might be worth looking into, yaknow?

As long as I can get 4 1/2 to 5 table lengths from the head spit with these new superspeeds then I'm good with that.

Dear Mr. RAM Shot:

There is no "best".

I see you are attempting to temper your desire for absolute anwsers. My younger daughter is like that...everything has to be measured or quantified.
I dont tell her this, but i will tell you- stfu with that shit. It is a fruitless pursuit, at best. It comes off as a pas/aggessive attempt to paint respondants into a corner.

Whats fast? The HR? We are talking a different table here and diamonds are known for having notably mkre rebound than brnswks.

l feel the rail/ bed speed is disproportionate on the diamonds, havin grlwn up on the GCs

Here's the thing most of you seem to fail to understand, the superspeed cushions are made to the same specs from one set to the next, yet can definitely play different from one table to the next....why is that? Is it the cushions, or the sub rail design that creates the difference in playability? Yet, all of you who judge how the cushions play, good or bad....fail to understand the separation between the two....cushions.....sub rails, then ask if they can be installed on other tables, then comment that the Diamond black cushions play faster....hmmmm, on which sub rail design to they play faster than superspeeds? I'll tell you this, when i calibrate a set of rails to fit the superspeed cushions, i get 5 times the length of the table and 9 rails around....so, are you says the Diamond blacks get more distance, get there faster, I'm lost, please explain.

I go to a room sometimes tha has the diamond cushions on gcrowns and those tables play very differently than the tables aroind them, also gcs and presumably oem cushions.

I have never attempted max distance on em, but will try to remembet to do so next time through.

The diamond black cushioned tables are notably more lively off the rails...and presumably in total distance, therefore.
