Slate Pool Table Benefits

Thinking about buying a pool table? Let me tell you about the differences between a pool table and a slate pool table. What is slate anyways? Slate is very heavy, fine-grained, foliated, homogeneous metamorphic rock. Billiard table manufacturers use slate because of its flatness and sheer weight. Slate adds hundreds of pounds of weight to a pool table, which adds stability and allows for precise billiards play. Even though you may not be at a pro level of billiards play now, you can always bring your game there with practice and desire. All pool tables may look alike, but a slate pool table will outperform and outlast a non-slate pool table for many, many years.
