What are your preferences for pool(pocket billiards) games...

1. table/cloth
2. balls
3. triangle(ball rack)

Researching for possible future pool hall. Mahalo for your time up front and good shooting.

GC Box, the old 860 cloth, 4.5" pockets, what ever cue works the best for me-with a triangle tip, diamond light(new model), a good triangle to rack the new Aramith balls with, old Master chalk, pounds of baby powder-preferably J&J, regular tip tapper, white terry cloth crying towel not washed with softner, a good case for my cue, bank-roll. Action. Anything else isnt necessary.

optional is a iPod.

Thanks Fatboy. I'm sure you racked with a lot of different racks. Which brand and model (if apropriate) do you prefer.

1) TABLE; Either a Diamond Pro-Am/Professional or any GC set up by RKC with 4 1/2" pockets (9 footers of course).

-CLOTH; Simonis 860 HR Tournament Blue (you definitley want the HR if its going into a pool hall).

2) BALLS; Any Aramith for playability and longevity. For playability, longevity and looks, either Centennials, or the new Aramith Tournament (all are made by Saluc of Belgium).

3) TRIANGLE; Doesn't matter to me, but if I was purchasing for a pool hall they would need to be wood with metal reinforcements at the corners to help prevent warping or twisting.

jmho..

I've never been there. I live in Los Angeles and we have a lot of Korean Markets here. I'm addicted to Kimchee. The hotter the better. My good friend is Korean and she brings homemade stuff from her Aunt. Awesome.

GC, or Diamond table with atleast 2 of em being 4" pockets, Simonis electric blue or tournament blue 760, Diamond lights, Super Aramith balls, Master chalk and any non-cheapo rack which isn't flimsy plastic that bows out when you press on the rack.

I generally play on a Diamond or GC with 4" pockets and Simonis 760. I of course wouldn't make all the tables that way simply because non-pool players wouldn't have fun on them.


Yes my custom cue also doubles as a light saber. You might say that it shoots lights out. You are now activated Agent 92395. Obtain the funds from Goldman Sachs and deposit into my Swiss account. This message will make you shit your pants in 5 seconds. Sev found it first.

Table: Gold Crown 4.25" - 4.5" pockets

Cloth: Simonis 860HR then 860. Must be green or T. blue.

Rack
: Delta (Full rack games) and Delta or Magic Rack for 9/10 Ball

Balls: Cents or Aramith Tournaments

Light: Fluorescent over incandescent.

Chalk: Blue Diamond

Bridge: Tiger Corona leather bridge head.


Since you are doing research for a possible pool hall, I sure wouldn't be disappointed if I walked in to a place and found a room full of Diamond tables either. But to me a great pool hall has good cloth, premium ball sets always clean and polished, good table lighting, enough room between tables and comfortable seating.

Spinali racks are my favorite wood racks, I need to check on the spelling.


I dont know if he is still builing racks, the Delta-13 racks are great(the expensive ones, not the cast ones).

Table: Gold Crown and Diamonds

Cloth: Simonis Tournament Blue

Rack: Delta

Balls: Cents or Aramith Tournaments

Notches in the seating tables and shelves for the cues.

Hot water, soap, and hand towels in the lavatory.

None of this matters if the equipment and building is not kept clean.
