I thought this would be interesting and I have never done a poll before so I'm hoping that I don't screw this up too bad.



If there are enough responses I tabulate and post the results. Let me know if you have questions, objections, opinions or comments of any kind.

I have a 9 footer & I'm hoping to sell it or trade it for a Bar Box very soon. All the tournaments are on Bar Boxes, so I'm chunking my pride & my passion to practice on the same size table I will be competing on. I should have done it 3 or 4 years ago.

I have a table, but it is not set up. Sadly it rests in the garage waiting for a place to set it up. /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

When you click on yes, I have a table, then click on the size, it deletes the yes vote....so you're going to have to figure if someone gives you the size, they probably have one.

Yep...you are absolutely right Steve.
I should not have put the "Yes" option in there... /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif
I'll know better next time /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

I have a bar box now but am hoping to build a room next year for a nine footer. Leagues are on bar boxes but this would beat going to the pool hall once a week.

Eg8r. Go to rebcobilliards.com in the list of tables go to Collender Imperial. That is what I own, that is what you get for being in the pool world for 60 years. But you should see what got away.####

I have two. A nine foot Circa 1945 Brunswick Centennial with automatic ball return fully restored by Rebco Billiards. I've gladly devoted half my living room to it. I also own an 8 foot Circa 1950 Brunswick Anniversary drop pocket that I've currently got up for sale. My son's been using the Anniversary while he was away at college. He just graduated and now, sadly, there's no home for it.

Hard to beat classic Brunswicks when it comes to fine tables.

I wouldn't part with my Centennial for love nor money.

I have a 8ft table setup in my garage. I bought a portable air conditioner/dehumidifier and put in there. It is always great to be able to go out and play a couple of games anytime that you want, in the privacy of your own home while drinking your own beer. LatER.

Very interesting stuff.................At this point is is a close race between the 9 foot tournament size and the 8 ft. regulation size but the 9 footers are leading by a small margin.
I guess this sort of tells us who we are dealing with when we pose a question on the CCB....he he /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Here are the numbers so far...after 58 votes......

Less than 7' ( or size or playing size less that 40" x 80")
1 = 01%

7 ft. (Like a Bar Box with 40" x 80" playing surface)
8 = 13%

8 ft. (Regulation size with 44" x 88" playing surface)
16 = 27%

8 ft. (Professional size with 46" x 92" playing surface)
5 = 08%

9 ft. (Professional and Tournament size with 50" x 100" playing surface)
19 = 32%

Don't know what size, don't care, don't want to say or whatever!
3 = 05%

Boo Hoo! I dont have a table at home!
6 = 10%

Same here, kind of. The garage is where my GCI is sitting in pieces, waiting, but I've got to build a floor first. Then insulate the walls and ceiling and pop in a couple of windows. And now after remeasuring, it looks like the 12-foot bar is NOT going to fit.

Guys I can't believe no one signed to www.Rebcobilliards to see my 3000+ lb cast iron table,a 1879 H.W.Collender table.####

Dick!
Of course I had to go to that web site and see that table.
Here is what I found so everyone else can see it without scrounging around looking for it.

Really a cool table...it is hard to believe that ANYONE owns such a table!
Do you play on it? Do you let anyone else play on it?

BigRigTom. That has been in my basement for 20+ years, I only played on it when I bought the table. My cast iron sides are different than the one in the picture. MY sides are from the Occidental model table. I will have to learn how to use my computer to transfer pictures.

Tom I sold a gorgeous inlaid table to Blatt in NYC that was a work of Art in Wood. The finest table I ever saw, the only drawback was it was a 4 1/2x 9 Billiard Table.

If it was appraised on the Antique Road Show the twins would estimate it's value at $100,000 +.It was not manufactured by Brunswick or Collender but a Small Table Co.####

Makes me feel like a pauper with my Brunswick Sierra 8 Ft. Pro in my garage which I bought used for $250. But all my friends say I practically stole it. I really like it for playing pool but at the same time I envy anyone who has such beautiful table like that and a place to display it, play on it and maintain it's pricelessness.
I don't even have a basement, here in California hardly anyone has basements here but maybe someday I can have one of those fancy rec rooms and fix it up like I like it. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif It never hurts to dream.

BigRigTom, the Volunteer Firehouse in Menands NY has a rare 6 legged Brunswick Pfister Model in their Clubhouse. It is in exceptional shape. I would estimate its value at 40/50 thousand.####

Finally hit 100 voters and here are the final results:
The 9's beat the 8' and 7's hands down.
But if you combine the 8' professional and the 8' regulation sizes then the 8's would squeak ahead by 2.

Less than 7' ( or size or playing size less that 40" x 80")
1 01%

7 ft. (Like a Bar Box with 40" x 80" playing surface)
11 11%

8 ft. (Regulation size with 44" x 88" playing surface)
30 30%

8 ft. (Professional size with 46" x 92" playing surface)
8 08%

9 ft. (Professional and Tournament size with 50" x 100" playing surface)
36 36%

Don't know what size, don't care, don't want to say or whatever!
