My brother has black felt on his 8' Olhausen in his basement with poor lighting. Worse shooting experience ever.

I'm with the crowd of the only color worse then black is red.

Good choice to choose a different color.

Yeah red is bad...Now imagine it on a snooker table. I really had no idea that someone

would figure, 'hey all the balls are red...lets cover it in red too!' TBH it was in a college

bar, but someone could of talked them out of it.

I can see them well enough to see the two down the left side aren't in line with each other. They form kind of a "V".

Yes, the dark pockets contrast with the light colored cloth is a target that can be seen even in our peripheral vision - a critical factor in aiming/shooting.

Any dark color (dark blue, dark green or especially black) are strongly not recommended for serious pool playing. The biggest issues are how badly the burn marks will show up the darker the cloth gets. Burn marks are a natural unavoidable wear and tear issue with normal pool play that occurs on all pool cloths. The darker the cloth color is, the worse the burn marks show up.

The other huge reason dark colors are not recommended for serious pool playing is that the balls and the playing surface just simply don't show up well for the shooter. Even if you have excellent and ideal high quality LED lighting over your table, the balls will always show up better the lighter the cloth is. Most home tables and even most poolrooms have far from ideal lighting - another reason you need a lighter, brighter cloth color.

The third thing to consider - black cloth means you'll be using black chalk - so that the chalk marks won't discolor your cloth - which will blacken your pool shafts and your hands every time you play! Is that what you really want just to have a cloth color that you think will look on your table / in your room?

Have played on black and really hated it, also once played at Northern Illinois Univ. and they had the tables in the school colors which are red and black, either red rails and black table or vice versa. Not very good.

once it's done and looking great, you'll be glad you went that route!

I have had tan/camel on all my home tables, looks great and you don't get the ugly chalk all over your hands, at least you can't see the chalk on your hands.

We used tan/camel Simonis in our pool room here once. I love the color for playing on, but it is no longer practical for a public poolroom to use - since so many players now use their own personal chalk - almost always blue. Blue chalk marks tend to leave permanent blue chalk stains in the camel colored Simonis, which is why we will never again use it here - although it's one of the absolute best colors to play on and no question hides the burn marks far better than any other color cloth we've ever used.
