Anyone know where I can buy a 10 ball Triangle for 2 1/4 balls?

Handyman:

I don't know that there is such an animal. I think, much like a nine ball rack, a 10 ball rack would be practically useless as it is much easier to rack nine ball, for instance, in a normal rack. I believe the same is true for ten ball racking.

I routinely rack 10 using a standard 15 ball triangle. Lay your thumbs across the back row of balls and put your fingers on the side of the triangle and it is easy to get a snug rack.

You could get a snooker triangle. It will work fine for 10 balls, but I think it is much easier and cheaper to just use a 15-ball triangle if you already have one.

Are you sure? I have a snooker triangle for 2 1/8" balls and I can't use it to rack 9-ball with the 2 1/4" balls. I haven't tried it with 10, but I don't think it would work.

<font color="blue"> I think that's because the nine ball (actually the ball at the back) is on the back row. With the 10 ball rack, the back row (of a 15 ball rack) is vacant. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif</font color>

I started a 10 ball ring game at my house and have been using a 15 ball triangle. I was after the 10 ball triangle at the request of my guest. Also was looking to add another item to the decor of my game room. Thanks for the replies.
