I am in the market for a new table to complete my finished basement. I am considering one from ebilliards.....
http://www.ebilliardstore.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=109_76&products_id=471
Can anyone offer experience with their service/product. I am looking for a table that will last a lifetime has a high quality look without actually being heirloom quality or price.
Another table that interests me is from proline....

It is twice the price but I don't know if it is twice as nice.
Thanks for any feedback.

If you're spending $2.5k, look for an Olhausen dealer or something and get yourself a proper table. I could be wrong, but I don't think too many people here would recommend ProLine (or the other one).

Why do you dislike Proline,There table construction meets every standard set by the BCA.There even made in the Usa.

I don't dislike them. But I went looking for a table recently, and not once was ProLine recommended. That's all I'm saying.

As a parallel, there are a lot of USGA conforming clubs out there. Doesn't mean I'm gonna play with them.

iacas...There have been many negative posts about the 'ebilliards' tables...poor quality and construction, made in China, etc. You can search them out in the archives. ProLine is okay, and American made...but in that price range, I'd pick Ohlhausen or C.L. Bailey first...if you don't want a nice used Brunswick Gold Crown. I saw an ad in the poolmag for Muellers (www.poolndarts.com) that listed 180 used tables for sale. You might check them out too! Ad says, "Call Mueller's at 402-423-8888, Ask for Rob"! jmo

Thanks - After reviewing some archives and doing some more shopping I have it narrowed down to either the Olehausen Huntingdon or the Connelly Cochise. Both seem like very solid tables with excellent playability and are priced around $2500. I got a good feeling from the connelly dealer as he has been at this business for a long time. The Olehausen dealer brags about their structural support and the ability to hold 27,000 pounds without a center beam. Connelly's slate is a bit thicker and the table I played on seemed lively and true. I don't think I can go wrong either way.

$2500 for a Huntington is a steal. That table should be about $1k more.
