Here’s a pool table we finished setting up last week in Yorba Linda, CA. Our client had purchased this seven-foot three-piece slate pool table used from a guy in San Clemente, CA. We disassembled it and moved it into our client’s home. This seven-footer was formerly covered with Laker’s purple felt. Our client was not thrilled with purple felt, he wanted to change it up a bit. He decided to go with gold felt on the slate and bobcat animal print on the rails.
Unfortunately, this pool table was manufactured using inferior cushion rubber adhesive. Once we arrived at the client’s home in Yorba Linda, we started to strip the old purple rail cloth from the rails. I immediately noticed that cushion rubber was not attached properly to the rails. I explained to my client that if we did not repair the cushions the table would play very poorly. (He actually noticed a rattling sound when he was at the seller’s home checking out the pool table.) He decided to have us replace all of the cushions with new Velocity K-66 rubber.
We guarantee our cushion rubber for fifteen years. The C.L. Bailey Co. uses this same cushion rubber on all of the pool tables they manufacture. I personally stand behind this cushion rubber and believe it to be one of the best in the Billiard Industry.
