If Simonis 860/860HR is not an option for you whether it be cost or availability, what would you go with as a backup? Bear in mind I am asking (obviously) because I want the best bang for the buck but without the hefty price tag for a home table to just have for family fun and knocking a few balls around here and there.

Champion seems to be an alternative that a lot of people like.

I'm thinking this too, but which, #3030, or #3020?

Thanks. I actually just emailed their rep. It seems they have no color/price options on their website.

Championship Mercury Ultra (without backing).

Great price and great performance. The hybrid fabric plays a lot like the worsted options at an appealing price.

Thanks, I look into it. How would you say it plays compared to a typical worsted cloth?

If EJ can get you the Andy readily - get it!!

You will probably get tired of looking at the cloth before it wears out just knocking a few balls around here and there.

In that regard it is the best bang for the buck.

Thanks. I'll wait to see what the rep says when they get back to me unless you know a different route to get prices/and colors.

In case you have not viewed this page yet there is decent descriptions of Andy cloths. The next time I recover my table I will support the company due to the tournaments that they have in my region.

Checked out the link, thanks. It doesn't look like they carry the color I am looking.

Day 1 it plays just the same as day 1 worsted. Ridiculously fast. You think the ball will stop rolling in the next 3Ē but trickles on for the next 6-9Ē. You almost have to hit everything as a stop shot or at pocket speed. Stunning around the table for two rail position is risky of overrunning by a mile. I think even Simonis is a better experience on a 9í table than a 7í table for that reason. Bigger zones to work in.

After not long, it still plays very fast but gets more manageable. Mine is a few years old. Itís definitely time to refelt. My table at this later stage is still as fast or faster than all the bar tables in town that I would call fast but just not quite as quick as the regional tournament tables here. Thatís because they use the same felt (it is why I use it) but theirs isnít as old as mine is getting now.

Why would it not be available?

Order on-line and have it shipped.

If you want a bright green contact Simonis in Chicago and ask for Apple Green. For some reason its still not on their website. I have Apple Green 860 on my GCIV, looks really awesome.
