Best Pool tables Review

Have you ever thought about adding a pool table to your home or workplace?

The thought has probably not crossed your mind very often if at all.

Why is that?

A big stumbling block for many people is the size of a professional pool table and the price. The amount of space in your home can be a big deciding factor when it comes to adding a pool ta-ble…

… but the price need not be.

Pool tables have never been more affordable and built with higher quality. And, if you are worried about space, then we have options for that too.

The best pool tables become invisible and let you concentrate on the game at hand while being beautiful enough for your friends to stare in awe at in between plays. Also, they are the tables which let the balls roll freely, bounce well from the cushions, and slip seamlessly into the pock-ets.

We love to play pool, so it was a joy to do some research about pool tables. When it comes to quality pool tables, we have some great ones for you. We even have some for the more budget conscious and those who have limited space. Here are the best tables we found, starting with our favorite.

Brunswick 8-Foot Danbury Pool Table with Free Contender Play Package Accessories and Contender Cloth - Price Includes Free On-site Delivery and Professional Certified Installation

Why we like it:

We like the professional quality of this table. The slate is thick, the wood construction is solid, and the felt is frictionless. If you are looking for the best of the best, then you have found it.


Summary:

This is a beautiful table. One look at the table and you will fall in love with it. The green felt (one of four colors) on the table is luxurious without having a lot of friction. The surround of the table is elegant and high-quality. The base is solid and well-built. The pockets are classy and hold the balls securely. The legs feature a claw design which is stylish and functional. If you have this pool table in your home, you are going to be the envy of all your friends.

You get so much more with this table than style. The pool table package comes with a set of professional billiard balls, four pool cues, a two-piece bridge, a ball rack, a table brush and twelve pieces of cue chalk. You really do get it all.

Go under the luxurious outer, and you will find three pieces of slate on top of the table. Each piece is an inch thick, and you can feel the quality of the slate in the weight of the table. The slate is solid and tough, as are the body and legs.

When you order this table, you will get delivery into your home with installation. You also get a money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with your table, but we know that you will be.

Harvil 8-Foot Slate Pool Table - Bellagio. Includes On-Site Delivery, Professional Installation and Accessories

Why we like it:

This is a beautiful table which is well worth the price if you have the space for it. The slate is go-ing to last, and the solid construction is going to support the slate for years.


Summary:

Another amazing looking pool table on our list. The pool table is full-size, making it extremely heavy, but the installation and delivery are included in the price, so you do not have to worry about installing it yourself. This table is beautiful to look at. The finish on top is available in one of three colors. Under the felt, you will find three pieces of slate which cannot be warped. They will stay as level as they are on delivery. Supporting the slate is a 17-inch solid wood finish, with 5-inch thick hardwood rails, mother of pearl inlay, and hand-crafted, solid wood, claw legs.

We like that the felt cloth is composed of 75% wool and 25% nylon for durability. It is also stain-resistant. There will be times when you enjoy a game of pool with a beer, and you need not wor-ry about that beer being spilled.

When you buy this table, you receive all the accessories you need to get playing, including Ca-nadian maple cues, balls, triangle, and more. You also get a tally shaker bottle and tally balls for playing bottle pool. This is a functional and beautiful table.

Fat Cat Reno II 7.5-Foot Billiard/Pool Game Table

Why we like it:

The Accuslate is not as durable and strong as regular slate, but it will last for seven years guaran-teed (and usually more). The use of Accuslate also means that you do not have to spend as much as a slate table.


Summary:

Why stop at two beautiful pool tables when we can show you a third. We love the color of this table, with the rich burgundy of the cloth matching the cherry finish of the wood. This table will look great in any room of the house.

The table is easy to put together and will stay together once you have it constructed. The MDF Accuslate is sturdy and flat, giving you even play, and the rubber bumpers, combined with the 6-inch wooden rails, provide superior bounce. This is a table which is going to last you for years.

We like the addition of silver diamonds on the cushions, helping you to work out your angles when you are aiming for the ball. With cues, chalk, triangle, rail brush, and more, you have eve-rything you need to start a tournament with your friends.

Harvil 84-Inches Black Billiard Pool Table with Complete Accessories, Orange Felt

Why we like it:

We like that you do not have to skimp on quality to have a smaller pool table. The same professionalism has gone into this table as has gone into any full-size professional table. A great addition to a home with kids.


Summary:

This is a professional table for when you do not have the room for a full-size table. The table is seven feet instead of eight so you are not losing a lot of playing area, but you are able to fit the table into smaller rooms.

We love the black and orange finish of this table. The black resin claw legs add some elegance to the pool table, and the orange felt will light up any room. We should specify that the surface is Taclon and not a typical felt finish. This covering is not only durable, but it will also ensure that the ball rolls consistently and with minimum friction.

This is a beautiful table which will enhance any room of your home.
