If set-up correctly they all play great. Most mechanics i've talked to say the 3 is the least desirable. That being said i'd love to have one of the super-shiny piano finish GC3's like the tv table at the older US Opens. Killer lookin' table. Have you asked this in the 'Table Mechanic' section? Probably get the best info on this subject there.I already have a Gold Crown IV. Bought it brand new from Orner Billiards in Indianapolis for Christmas of 2002. Was delivered/setup in early January of 2003.
I was hoping to get some SPECIFIC answers as to which table posters, players, etc, think is the BEST Gold Crown. So far alot of responses about tables but not alot of posts indicating which one they consider the best.
