I'm going to put new cushions on my G.C.2, should I use K66 cushions or something else? If something else who has good prices? Also who has good prices on Simonis. one more thing the formica rails on my table have a couple of scratches is it possible to purchase replacement rails?

If the rails haven't decomposed, maybe you could leave well enough at home. There are some old rails that have a high percentage of rubber in them, so they will be good for a long time.

I like the Championship Dual-Density rails, but maybe you should keep the table playing like the ones you compete on.

No, do not put K66 style cushions on your Gold Crown. That is the wrong profile. They use K55 style cushions. I just replaced my. I bought a new set of Brunswick SuperSpeed cushions off ebay for $85. A few days later another set (from the same seller) sold for $55. They are about $140 from a dealer. I did a lot of research on this subject. Here is an article that might help.

Thanks guys I appreciate the research, the article was very informative although a bit technicle. My cushions are dead so I guess my search begins for some K55 cushions.
