I have a couple of questions. I am thinking of buying an olhausen table from my local dealer. Its an 8ft table and i was wondering if it was good quality. I plan to put it on my lower floor but on carpet and was wondering if that will make the table unlevel... also if i do decide to buy it the guy said i have the choice of putting 1" slate instead of 7/8" slate, and also simonis cloth instead of the one it comes with for a small fee... is there much of a playing difference with simonis and 1" slate.. thx

This is the table i plan to buy

Your link is not working, so I couldn't see the table.

IMHO, you should go with the 1" slate and the Simonis cloth. However, that is just my opinion. The few extra dollars will give you a better playing table.

I have not seen an olhausen table that I did not think was good quality. It is sa very reputable table that is made in america. I woud agree that the 1" slate and simonis cloth are worthy upgrades. It really depends though on how serious you are. The thicker slate is better for long term wear. The simonis cloth is what nearly all pro tournaments are played on ,and is generally faster than the stock cloth. What the table comes with is still good enough for normal play though.

It all depends on the thickness of the carpet and pad combination.
If you are only using a thin carpet, with no pad, you probably won't have any problem at all.
If you are using a thick, plush, carpet, with a thick pad, you may have to have the table releveled after the table settles in.
The best thing you can do is discuss this with your dealer and the installer. They may come back to your home after a period of time and check the level of your table for you, at no extra cost.

I also checked the link for your table. It looks like a very nice home table and you should get years of enjoyment from it.

I know that an installer by me says that he installs tables that are on carpet over a 7 day period because it will settle.

I didnt have any trouble with my table level. I have an 8' Fischer with 1 inch slate sitting on thick plush carpet with a thick soft pad. I think your table should be heavy enough to settle itself right away. At least mine did. I had my table installed two days after the carpet and pad went in and now a year later we're still rollin strait.

Olhausen makes one of the best tables I have ever played on. Regardless of the model you choose, you are getting a good table. One inch slate is going to be more stable, and the tournament grade cloth is an option I would definitely take.

I believe that once you have an Olhausen table set up, Olhausen guarantees it will remain level for life (as long as you don't move the table). My local Olhausen dealer told me they have NEVER had to re-level one under the guarantee. That's a pretty solid guarantee.

My pool rool sits over a crawl space which has a concrete floor and just as a precaution I reinforced that family room floor before I set the table up. Probably over-kill but what the hell. Never had any problem with going out of level.... except for slate popping in the early stages and with my Brunswick table. The Diamond has not popped.
