A glass top pool table? Can't imagine how it would play. Then it gets scratched from regular balls instead of specially made balls.

“Designed to allow beer spills to be mopped up easily, the table is finished with a resin film to ensure the balls roll normally”
– MX Magazine – Jan 2004, Melbourne Australia

“We played on this table at this year’s BCA Expo… a surface that really does allow the balls to come to a stop, even lets you use English, Draw and Follow, but with no slate, no billiard fabric and no brushing”
– Pool & Billiard Magazine - September 2007, USA

“What’s cool about the transparent surface is that it appears as if the balls are floating as they roll across the table”

I am thinking that scratching can be minimized if the player gets some good lessons from a pro.

yes, i agree with cushioncrawler... i think scratching can be avoided if the players get training from experts..
it would be fun to play on a glass table, what with the effect of the glass on the balls! it would be a great experience for lovers of the game!

If you have 73k to piss away on a pool table, I suppose it shouldn't be a hardship to just fix it and buy the correct balls.

Looks great from the pic, if you like that high tech style.

I'm guessing the coating gives a little friction, or how would these balls slow down at all (and that review says they do).

Prolly cannot just buff out the damage, and needs recoating with the polymer or whatever they used.

Friktion duznt slow a rolling ball down. In fakt friktion makes a rolling ball roll further.

Rolling rezistance slows a ball.
