pigbrain...There is no such thing as a "9ball table"! They are all POOL tables, on which any game utilizing cuesticks and balls can be played. There is no BEST table. There are many quality manufacturers out there. In the U.S., Brunswick, Diamond, Ohlhausen, Connelly, and Gabriels tables are among the most desirable, and sought after, professional style tables. Price and availability are the most logical factors for a table purchase, as the differences between "brands" is fairly insignificant at this level.

Don't forget Kim Steele tables. I had never heard of them till I moved to the NW, but they're even better than the Brunswick Gold Crowns IMO.

I really don't rate Olhausens, though. Not junk, but not in the same league as GC's.

Just curious..does Kim Steele have a website? I've done a couple of searches and have been unable to find them.

Thanks, Chaz

Oops. I did a quick online check and found this. Seems they're no longer in production, which is a shame.
