I was wondering where you measure your tables pocket to determine the width? My table (9' Canada Billiards) is 5" at the mouth and 4" at the actual opening. I've heard there is a 4.5" pocket in use in some touraments, I called a few dealers and got answers all over the map.

I feel your pain.
When I went shopping for my 1st table I knew absolutely nothing about tables and I found out the hardest thing to know was "What questions do I need to ask and then how do I know the answers are accurate."
This thing about the pocket dimensions was a big one.
Take a look at this page.... Check your pockets (http://www.waynesthisandthat.com/billiards.htm#pockets) ..... Keep in mind that the author has experienced the same frustration we all have with the accuracy of someone else's answers and that has prompted his informational site.
Verify the info anyway you like, after all, the knowledge is for your own use and satisfaction....right?

Thanks Tom. One of the most comprehensive sites I've ever seen. Cheers, Brad /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
