Yeah, that's probably overkill for me. I love the Diamond look but unless I find used, that's out.I bought a new 7' Diamond pro am at the end of 2018. Table was $5,125.00 +250.00 set up, +$800.00 shipping. Grand total $6,175.00. Something to think about. I like my table but could have probably got into a very nice used gold crown for half the price.
What about an old pool table from a 1960s pool hall? I know someone whose grandpa owned the pool hall and she still has the tables in storage. They were big tables in those days, had leather pockets. I wonder if that is worth looking into.
