Southern California Pool Table Experts…

When most people are researching quality American-made pool tables for sale, Connelly Billiards is probably not the first name to come to mind. Most consumers just assume Brunswick Billiards is the only/best pool table brand to buy. Pool table consumers are also led into believing that Brunswick produces an American-made product. The fact is Brunswick has not made pool tables in the U.S. for over 10 years. On the other hand, if you’re a consumer that buys popular name brands and doesn’t mind paying extra cash for it, Olhausen Billiards builds one of the finest American-made pool tables. But the fact is you’d be paying for Olhausen’s bloated advertising budget and not for their superior construction. We represent Connelly Billiards, the other, lesser-known American pool table manufacturer.

When you invest your hard-earned money in a Connelly pool table you need to understand what you’re paying for and what you’re not paying for. First, what you’re not paying extra for is Connelly Billiards’ utilization of real lumber, such as solid Oak and Maple which is used to build their cabinets. If you buy an Olhausen pool table you’d be paying an additional upcharge for these species of wood. Secondly, when you invest in a Connelly pool table you’re paying for the most rigid cabinetry in the Billiards Industry. Take a look at the inside corners of a Connelly cabinet and you’ll see rock-solid 45-degree mitered corners with permanently glued, nailed, and screwed leg mounts. Connelly beefs up their cabinet corners even further by incorporating solid poplar wood gussets into the four corners producing a 100% more solid union between the legs and the cabinet. There are many other design attributes that set Connelly Billiards apart from the competition. So, before pulling the trigger on the first big name brand pool table you come across, take a closer look at the intricacies between Us and Them.
