I was at the All Japan last year. Very nice tourney on all levels. Players dressed nicely. Tables rolled horribly, I just watched of course but wow the balls were rolling all over the place. Honestly I donít recall what tables were used. 5ís maybe.


I hope the 6ís are better than the 5ís. The GC5ís look nice theyíre where it ends. Iíll spare everyone the story. Glen/RKC knows the story he was part of it-in a good way, Thx man!

Actually later Iíll make a new thread about that particular GC5, was a great story and bit of Mosconi Cup history. I was lucky enough to be a spectator for. The table was fine for that purpose. They just never stayed level-ever.

Best

My guess is the red rep was for the use of that 4 letter combination "bruh" I believe it was??? What is a "bruh", sounds like it my be some sort of female sanitary item???

Not sure where any of this applies to me being that I am married and have a 16 month old Lil Baby Girl at home. I also can ignore your speech!

I have to ask you guys when these turn into who likes what...and what’s better than...and why thread.., I think the average joe is not going to pay 10k + for a new gc. No one ever seems to bring this up which is a huge factor for the average player. I love the look of the gc5 !! My favorite! But damn they are priced out of their minds. Especially after reading the thread a couple months ago about a gentleman who paid 10k and his table wasn’t set up correctly.... wtf.? This is why diamond is king now!

The table is built very well and that costs money, just like cars or houses. The table will last a lifetime. Not many things you can use your whole life.

Just because a dealer messed up a guys install does not mean the table is not an excellent purchase.

I sell both brands and both can be messed up by a crappy install.

Diamond is one of the players in the mame and clearly the leader in the US market. Brunswick dropped out of the commercial market. Diamonds tables are about 40% less in price. The OP's thread is about a tournament in Japan on GC6's. Matchroom mainly uses Rasson. I am also set up to sell Rasson tables as well and I feel they will be a major player once they get their tables right. Test driving the Victory 2+ and OX table in January. Lots of things are changing in pool!

Trent from Toledo

P.s. MSRP='s NEGOTIABLE. Like I said, I can be very competitive on brand new GC6's. Diamonds are factory priced and that is what I sell them for, no negotiation.

Trent, I agree with your entire statement ! It’s just the price is scary. I’m sure they are built as well if not better than a diamond but from my understanding it’s close to 4K difference in price. One day when I get close to that number I’ll call you and we can deal hopefully

As far as that botched install on that gentleman’s gc, there is no excuse for that. To pay that much $ and have have a bad install is complete bullsh*t and reflects badly on Brunswick. Perhaps I’m not as forgiving as some.

Nobody has ever had an issue with any other brand table ?

Don't want a Gold Crown?...fine, buy something else, lots of options out there. But seriously, do we really have to act like Brunswick makes nothing but garbage because some guy on the internet says he had a big problem?

That glorious old school sound of the corner pocket!

Btw, that cloth is hideous.
And it plays slow.
Would be a nightmare to play on after it gets broken in.

There have been so many break and runs.
So many blowout matches.
Ignacio was one game from goose-egging Yoshiaki.

Bruh is the phonetic sound of the first syllable of Ďbrotherí..synonym of Ďbroí

Nothing even remote to "short".

This is how a cushion is supposed to play, IMO of course

I watched about 45 min of the first match, but didn't see any of the other ones. The ball reactions off of the rails is simply beautiful. Thanks for listening

Geeee, I wonder how much of a difference that cloth would make in how a Diamond plays.
