PT, I said it before, I had a very hard time adjusting to the online chitchat. Hell, I'm still adjusting. It's a huge learning curve for some.

AZB is like a box of chocolates. You just never know what your gonna get.

One could join and then be asked about the level of play or whatnot with the ghost. They proceed to answer the question and about that time he is bombarded with:

Why you got to always talk about your level of play?

And then that new comer will hear:

People that actually play at higher levels don't talk about it.

Lol...PT, I didn't think I was gonna survive this place for a bit there. And that's funny because when I was a good bit younger I survived a LOT of very, very dangerous situations. Some of those situations was military related and some of them came about while hanging around in some of the world's roughest neighborhood rooms.

Decades of ^^^^^^^^^ and then retire......and then have problems adjusting to a DAMN KEYBOARD...lol.

Go figure,

Jeff

I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

The beat to death last decade topic of Diamond or Bwick tables is a topic I thought Iíd never mention again-10 years ago. Yet here we go again....


I like Diamond as a company and I can call the owner or guy who designed their tables anytime I want and talk to them. Thatís pretty solid and great biz. Diamond is a better company from that perspective for me anyways. And they are assembled in America which is cool, parts sourced from all over the world like anything. They have their share of internal drama over the years like any business. Of course thatís private and ends here. They are a solid company and will continue to be-thatís very certain. They solve their problems and move forward.


I like GCís better tho. I donít like Bwick the company so much. Itís a huge public company with a billiards division. I had a contact there and used to buy direct from Bwick (they were breaking their own rules) but that is long in the past and I can mention it now. I never exploited that opportunity like I could have-meaning buying more and selling more product. I had better ways to make $ and it was too small. Kinda got side tracked here.

Anyways my point is I like Diamond as a company better and I like GCís as a table to play on better. Assuming they are both properly installed.

Diamond has a better quality product overall. But for my taste I like playing on GCís more given the choice between tables.

One last note anyone spending $10K on a new GC has lost their mind. But thatís another topic.

I think I drank too much coffee Iím scattered today j/k

Diamond Pro, Pro Am or Brunswick GC6 are not very far off in price. Not many things in life you can keep and use your ENTIRE life. That to me means it is worth the price.

I cannot even have one cup of coffee and if I do I would be BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS!!!

Not even close in resale value if one ever needs to sell after buying new.

Not to mention, the cheapest of those mentioned to manufacturer, is also the most expensive to buy new.

Unfortunately least cost combination economics are a reality.

MSRP does not mean there is no wiggle room= just can't advertise it.

Factory Direct = No less than the factory.

There's a big difference between the perception of value, and real value, and resale brings about the realities of the truth. There are lots of GC's in storage, wishing they could be sold, while most looking, wish they could find a Diamond used at a cheaper price.

Just think how much more affordable diamonds could be if they were manufactured by YALIN and assembled here. They could easily make those tables

Glen,

I have tried to explain to Trent how much difference the cloth makes.

TrentFromToledo just doesn't seem to want any info from people with more Pool ability and experience so I just gave up.

I play on Simonis cloth all the time on Pro Cut pockets. Worsted wool is far faster than napped felt. I understand what you said about trying to get shape on the old napped felt. Common knowledge. Whats your point?

Trent

P.s. not to mention we were not even talking about cloth or how it plays, so really, help me understand how what you just posted has anything to do with what we were talking about ?

P.s.s Are you going to continue to try and tell me how Pro Cut Pockets have no place in pool as well?

I wonder what would happen if YALIN bought the design rights to the Brunswick Anniversaries and Centennial's, and produced the same tables today for half of what you sell them for, but new. You think customers would jump on them instead of buying tables from you?
