I'm looking to buy a pool table for my basement bar that I am finishing. I just wanted to know if there are any suggestions on when to buy a table. Is it better to wait until after Xmas? before Summer? or any other season?

Also, I will probably buy the table locally, but was wondering if anybody has experience with "Zbilliards" (they sell on Ebay, were featured in the magazine)?

Spring is generally when retailers discount their tables since the warm weather is usually when the pool/billiard business drops off.

Spring sounds reasonable as far as table discounts would go, with people getting ready to spend time outside.
But one thing to think about is would it be worth saving a couple hundred bucks (possibly more) and waiting for nice weather to get here, or would it be worth spending a little more so you can enjoy it all winter?
For me I would go ahead and get one if the room is ready, I would spend more on table time at the local pool room for practice time than what I would save on the cost of the table to wait /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
