I am in the market for a pool table in about the $2000 range. I spoke to a local Olhausen dealer and he said I could purchase an entry level 8' table for about $2000. Anybody know how good this table is and what it looks like. What about an entry level Brunswick? Or am I better off looking for a used table? Im in Albuquerque, NM and it doesn't seem like there are many used tables in the paper. Thanks for any information you can provide.

2 k will get u a table,most likely with 3/4 in unframed slate.olhausen and brunswick both make tables in that price range but are kinda cheap looking,take your time looking for one,bargains are out there.i just moved a nice 9 footer for a guy that bought it for 900,i charged him 525 to move and recloth it with championship titan and it is a sweet table for a total of 1425$.

If you shop around and deal with a reputable dealer, you can find an entry level Brunswick for about that or a maybe a couple hundred more. And I mean a "real" Brunswick, not the game room 3/4" slate stuff, but the real furniture tables with 1" framed slate. Look at the 8' Bradford and Brookstone models, both are less expensive than my 8' Avalon which I paid about $3500 for two years ago. That including a Centennial Kit, Simonis 860, delivery and setup. As I recall the Bradford was around $1999 for standard cloth and Brookstone was around $2400 or so. That was two years ago, I don't know how prices might have gone up.

an 8' brookstone with a standard accesory kit and 1" framed slate goes for around 2,500$-3,000$ these days. dealer markups make up the price difference

Consider looking around for a nice used table. That's where the real value for your $2k will be found.
