Nothing, if the table is designed right, slate backing isn't needed.

Not saying I don't trust you, I just want to see the difference myself, not that I'll ever work on one.

Nice looking tables. Not Tournament edition?
How are the pockets out of the box? Calibrated fairly well? The pockets on my GC4 were wide and inconsistent. Was that the table or installation? I think I would get the Tourney edition if I get a Vl.

One of them was T. Edition, The pockets were within tolerances. the castings are kind of hard to mess up on the 4 5 6. I would go T. Edition as well.

Quote from my client who has the T edition GC6 " Dude!!! I'm still in awe! Got some buddies comin' over again.....they can't believe how nice this plays!", "Play every day. No regrets on that beauty!"

You have to be able to slide your Starrett 98 across the seams in both directions with no clicking before you use the liquid dowel method.

So let me get this straight, when I glue a 3 piece slate together....I have to sand the seams to get them flush, is that what I'm understanding you're saying???

No, this is what was said.

If you re-read this and then what I said you will understand.

The first line is from someone else's bull$h1t post. I clearly said this is not true

The seams of the slate are matched flush on both sides before being superglue together, there is no sanding done to match the seams. The only sanding done is sanding off any excess bondo used to fill the seam, no different than any other 3 piece slate.

I do not see the stretcher on any GC6 pictures. Is smaller, modified or am I seeing pictures not showing it.

Yes the GC VI has a stretcher, below is a link to a thread that Trent posted of the manual for the GC VI. It looks to be bit smaller than previous stretchers of the earlier
models.
