I don't remember model numbers, but I grew up playing in a pool hall that had some 8-foot Schmidt commercial tables and 8-foot Brunswicks. I preferred the Schmidts.

Remember too, that this thread is 7 or 8 years old. Prices will not have gone up, and the available 'cheap' Chinese knockoffs will be even more plentiful. The key factor will be how long you want to hold out for a potentially higher price.

AES tables are the tables at Dave And Buster's the last time I was there.

I wouldn't touch a pool table today that does not read Brunswick or Diamond.

The first cue I ever had made was by A.E. Schmidt. It was made from a Titlist blank.

The guy who made it was named Lloyd Benson.

After he retired, he traveled all over the USA covering and repairing the tables for Dave and Busters.

Here is a link to AE Schmidt archived tables. They are still in business with the factory in St. Louis.

A E Schmidt tables are built very solid, and play well for years. They are much better quality than Golden West tables (also a US manufacturer), and play better too!

They play fine. Built sturdy and have a traditional look. I live in the Midwest and there are many of them in homes around here. Most have buckets for pockets but they are decent tables.

I have played on them in the past and they were very solid tables. I think if you just want a home table for recreational use they would be fine. if you want a table to train on for very serious competition- probably a Diamond or maybe a GC and nothing else as someone else suggested. I once had an Olhausen home table from the late 1980s and it did not translate well when I competed on a Gold Crown from that era- the speed and the rails and the pocket openings were all so different from commercial GCs- it was always a big adjustment on game day for me. I finally switched to a GC.

Brings me back - 11-03-2019, 10:40 PM

Some of the happiest times of my life were spent playing on AE Schmidt tables.
I was about 15 or so years old when I sneaked in the Cotton Bowling Palace.
They had AE Schmidt 4x8's with over size slate and rails. They had these black
and white speckled aprons and red rubber pockets. I think they were that model
named Comet. I thought this has to be Heaven. It was like a cock fight or like the
action you see in the Philippines. The crowd was so large you had to get people
to move to shoot every shot. Billy Stroud was playing this guy, I think his name
was Joel Shotsman (Billy correct me if I'm wrong if you read this). People were
waving money in the air taking bets,and it took 20 minutes after each game to
get bets down before the next game could start. You had to be 18 to play so I
had to get someone to get the balls and hope they didn't see me. The tables
were a strange size and it took a out of town player a little while to adjust. I
became friends with Billy and Alf Taylor and they got the house man to look
the other way so I could play. The tables were really solid and seemed well
made. The Cotton Palace got busted for gambling and they had trustees from
the Dallas Jail haul the tables out and that was the last time I ever saw an
A E Schmidt.
