As somewhat of a traditionalist, it's always been my favorite color. Now that I'm setting up an old table with new everything I'm doing a little second guessing.

green is traditional and like it much better than red or gray. tournament blue is my favorite, especially with good lighting. I upgraded our tavern's league tables lighting after they got new 860 Simonis tournament blue installed with these which are very bright and a true color:

I also have always been a traditionalist and was not a happy camper when the game changed from Green to the Tournament Blue many years ago, then the hall I played in at the time followed that lead and went to Blue.

As time passed I realized the Tournament Blue was far superior to view Pool on video and that it was easier on the eyes when playing.

Now it’s moved on to this new hideous Shark Grey which for me personally is not as pleasurable to play on or watch Pool on video. It’s all what you like, everyone has their favorite.

As with all colors, lighting is the key component. (Somewhere I learned that ancient civilizations sometimes ground up emerald and ingested them to improve eye site. Green (warmth) was known to be soothing to the eye). ;)

This is the table light that caught my eye. it is 5500K and CRI of 90. My only issue with it is that it's not color adjustable.
Blue is the only other color I'll consider at this point.

Pool cloth is green, the 5 ball is orange, baseballs are white, footballs & basketballs are brown, stop signs are red, etc., etc. Change is confusing.
Im sure the technology exists to better improve video visualization without discarding traditions.

That’s not an accurate photo - it is much brighter. It is as bright a green as tournament blue is a blue. As others have said, good LED lighting is the key. Can’t go wrong with Simonis green.

Years ago my first table was a Brunswick Viscount and when I got it home it obviously needed new cloth. I went to an old blilliard supply company on mission street in SF called Whitehead and Zimmerman maybe some of you old timers will remember it. Brought in the rails to be recovered and the guy said "what color do you want"? Being rather new to this I said "well what color should I get" and he said "Son there are two things is this world that need to be green, one is a dollar bill and the other is pool table cloth!" I've never had any other color on my pool tables, including my current Gold Crown 3.

It's all I use on vintage tables.

I'm especially annoyed because 860HR green was out of stock, so now I have blue 😫

It has been years since I have played on anything other than blue, when out. But in my home it will always be green. Admittedly, it’s not a Diamond but it’s what makes a home table warm and inviting as opposed to commercial and bar like. IMO.
