Wrong, they were 5" at the mouth but never the same in the throat. Stock Brunswick tables since the 40's up until the GC5 came out ALL came with 5" corner pockets and 5 1/2" side pockets. Corner pocket miter angles were 142/143 they varied, but the throat of the pocket was 3/4" smaller than the pocket opening. The pockets on this table are huge, not even close to stock!!!Pockets used for years in 14.1 were this size. I watched Sigel's 150 and those pockets looked pretty roomy to me.
