If you play well or bad, the equipment, in general, does not dictate the outcome.


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?

I have never played on a diamond so I cannot comment on the quality,
but I have owned 4 Brunswick tables from a 1926 regency to an 8 foot glenwood and 2 GC in between. Cant say I ever had a problem with any of them. The pockets on the glenwood are a bit forgiving but that helps when you are 73.

What I can say for sure is, it's nice to have a table to play on.

Especially a 9' table.

Honestly I thought I'd recieve some contrasting comparisons suggesting I'm experiencing a negative bias with a sprinkle of your crazy and campy opinions.

What I got... wellllllll... a hate clique convincing of another depth (couldn't skip a rock off of it). Is it Azbillards or the rhyming HazingBilliards?

Happy Friday none the less.

Are you of the Cron Tílan Imass? Anyway what I like about diamonds is that they are pool tables, they have nice cushions that allow more manipulation than others, they look really nice, I donít own one myself but those I play on are always level..probably because of the ease of the leveling system. Iíve had 1 ball come at me bro, never snagged my glove and ripped it, and the rail is nice for bridging on. So thereís your proof that diamonds are up to their hype.

works for me.

I, we, play on heavily used diamond's, they're tough, get moved around and stuff,
they still play a dollars worth.

For being such an expert on Diamond tables, I was just wondering what kind of pool table you bought to go along with that first ever cue you bought....you DO own your own pool table, don't you??
