View Full Version : Brunswick light for gold crown

Anyone have the big canopy light for their Brunswick table. Wondering how effective it is? Just wondering if I should go with this or the traditional lighting for my new room. My designer loves it.

Any time you can provide a link with maybe a picture, you should. I suspect that most of us have little idea what the Brunswick big canopy light looks like, and less inclination to try to search it out ourselves. What do you mean by the term "traditional lighting"? Aren't you paying your designer big bucks to design your room? Why not go with what the designer recommends?

I like them but my wife wanted to go with the Tifany lighting. This is what we ended up with on my/our GC4. http://s9.photobucket.com/albums/a92/hemicudas/?action=view&current=MyPhotos287.jpg

Looks great, I like the details in your billiard room too... LOVE the flip down, raised seating..

I too, paid big bucks to have my room designed, but lost out on the best new room anyway, to some house in Texas.(Probably because of the lawn mower under the table, in the photo I submitted)
He might pay a lot more for his designer light, but my three
warehouse lights @ $26 each,plus $8 for the daylight bulb, is the best table lighting I have seen.

I agree with Wolfdancer, but I went with the APA Pool League light because our League Operator got me a deal some how. $125 and I had to go to his house and pick it up then install it myself. I like it though! It is the same one you see over all those tables at the APA Nationals in Las Vegas!

Sorry, here is the one recommended to me. Designer has mentioned using Full Spectrum bulbs also. We are currently closing in a window. Lighting with no sun glare on table seems very important. Played at a club last week with this same problem, (sun shinning in my eyes while shooting).

Magoo's in Tulsa uses the Big Canopy lights. However Magoo's is installing some new Pool Table lights that are much better in luminating the table, they're cooler & they cost less to use.

Lightweight enough to use string to hang it with! /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Those Gold Crown lights are very expensive.
