lol billiard players and their opinions will always be a mixed bunch

i like green and royal pro brand, no heating needed anymore, which is just a simplistic plus to me
its also cheaper

its good enough for sir raymond ceulemans personal home table

Have tried Simonis (several times), Royal Pro (once), and Gorina (several times). I only use Gorina now. Less fuzz than Simonis; a hard, fast cloth. Royal Pro is fast but didnít care for the ball marks.
To each their own. I enjoy a heated table to play on. Been playing 60 years. Great game.

My 10' Gabriels came with new Simonis and after that, my next cloth will be Royal Pro.

I don't like running the heater at home. Plus it's broken.

actually now that ive been out playing i have changed my mind
always preferred green, but i played on a table with royal pro SKY BLUE and this will be my next cloth on my table
the clarity makes it a no brainer, much easier to see than even green

and as it was next to 2 other tables with that delsa blue simonis, it looked like night and day
the simonis is far to dark
