I am in the process of moving and am looking for a house that will accommodate both a 9 foot and 10 foot table (I already have a 9 foot).

Olhausen Champion Pro used to be availabe in 10 Foot; however, when I look at their web-site now it is not listed as an option.

Does anyone know whether this is still an option with this table. If not, do any of the major brands offer a ten foot option. I am thinking of Brunswick Gold Crown, Diamond, Kasson or any of the major brands.

I have looked, but have not seen this option available in the past, except with Olhausen.

I don't know if anyone is making them now. I would imagine Diamond would make you one if you asked them although it might require a six-legged design and cost a fortune. There are old tables available for far less than the cost of a new one:

I would look for one that is convertible to billiards. They are out there but not easy to find. I've had the chance to buy both a 9 ft and 10 ft convertible but I don't have the room. The 10 foot is still availavble and will go cheap but it's no showpiece.

I love the old 5x10 tables and remember playing on them years ago. I do still see them though, at some billiard rooms. Why don't you try contacting some billiard establishments and find out where their sources are. They're definetely still around it will just entail a little leg work. Good Luck!

There's a company in England making nice reproductions of old tables. Here's one of their lower priced models that comes in a 10 foot American pool configuration:

They have a very wide selection and offer most any common size. You might want to consider one that flips over and becomes a dining table:

If safety mechanism is required, please add another 500
