Used Gold Crown II $950.
Rental truck to pick it up in the boonies of San Diego $175.
New Simonis 860, new German cushions installed by Ernesto $700.
Paint and labor of love around $75.
Beating your older brother for $10 the the first three weeks of ownership (betting a dollar a set races to 5, big brother gets one game on the wire)
PRICELESS!

Looks beautiful ... like the one I dreamed I was going to get before a home repair project spiraled out of control. Gotta squint to see into those corner pockets ... one tight bastard, it looks like. Much envy here.

What brand of chair is that? That's what I want for Christmas.

Wally, a friend of mine manages a pool hall.
He bought a load of these chairs at World of Leisure.
They're too big for his pool hall ( according to the owner).
So I bought one for $125. A steal!!!
I'm gonna get another one.
Those The Hustler posters in Italian are great.
I'm gonna get the big one then the black and white prints of Eddie and Fats. How can you not?
Loved that movie.

Only $125?? That's a steal!!

I have two of those chairs myself but I did't get them for $125!

The table looks great. The pockets look about 1/2" smaller and the pocket angles squared up, say like a diamond table.
The stock GC had wide angle pockets. How do those cushions play/bank, a little short? I'd love to have that setup but alas I'm stuck with stock ones, dead ass cushions and all. LOL BTW like that chair but the kitchen has to go, it's in the way. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Rod, the pockets are about 4 3/8 at the jaws.
They are more forgiving than the Diamond b/c of the angle.
Not quite as flat in the end rail.
The German cushions bank honestly on slow and medium speed.
They will bank short on hard shots.

Cool, that is how a table should be set up. I like the Diamond side pockets. They seem a lot more forgiving than BW side pockets and I think that is a fair trade off. Glad you like your table.

Nice steal! Maybe we should turn you in to the authorities. Didn't the person know what they had? Oh well...wish I had room for a 9 footer, I barely have enough for a barbox.

I didn't even wear a ski mask.
San Diego is a "soft-market" for used goods.
The owner was moving to Virginia in a hurry.
I've found better steals than this.
$750 for a Centennial table.
$375 for a Sport King.

Pic looks deceiving. I have plenty of room to play.
The two head spot corners are a little tight but we manage.
I wasn't going to settle for an 8-footer.

No, but sometimes I practice stroke on the dinner table when my brother is shooting.
