Oh contrair....The OP has stated pocket size or cut isn't the issue. He can't adjust to the different speeds of the tables.
Smaller table and the way it plays are what I mean. The deal shelves make the corner pockets reject some shots that should go. I just don’t feel like I can let my stroke out.
I have and can adjust to those type of shots, but my point is I shouldn’t have to. Those shots go, playing off the long rail on a normal pool table.
Then on post 103...
Your assessment is pretty accurate. One of my biggest problems is shooting on the diamond, I have to shoot so much softer. Then when I play on any other type of table, my speed is way off. As for hitting center pocket, I’m ok in that aspect. Rattling balls isn’t so much the issue. The diamonds are fine if it’s all you ever play on, but for my situation it’s just too different from all other pool tables and the practice time is not as effective as it is with a real table, like a GC.
So..... which is it? Is it because balls rattle in the pro cut pockets? Or isnt it? Or should he have gotten league cut pockets? Or is it a psychological thing..... remorse for getting rid of the beloved Gold Crown?
I can understand the latter. I wouldn't want to see a Gold Crown go either.
Since the wife wont play on it, dump the Diamond and buy another Gold Crown. Someone would love to have the Diamond. Problem solved.
