6 ft table - is this one good?


6 ft table - is this one good?

My husband really wants a pool table to practice at home but we do not have much room. Ideally we need a 6 ft slate table but they seem to be really hard to come by. I found a listing on Craigslist that sounds good but it is far away from me (2 hrs drive maybe) and I can't seem to find anything about it online.

Can you tell me if this is a decent table and if it is a good price for it?

I'd appreciate any input you can offer since I don't know much about pool tables and would love to buy one for him for birthday/Christmas gift.

    (unseen) The price is in the ballpark. If the rack, balls in good condition, light and sticks are thrown in, it's a very good deal.

    Given the distance, you may want to negotiate for half the gas expenses...

    Thank you Zeke. I talked to the owner and he said that the table is 10 years old but it has hardly been used, it has been in the Living Room and covered most of the time. He is including the balls, bridge and sticks but there is no light. I am bad at negotiating :( but maybe I'll try to ask him for some discount. I have to measure my minivan to make sure it will fit and hopefully we are strong enough to move it :)

    Oh, and it is made of laminated particle board which I kind of expected from the pictures. We will keep it in the basement but I assume it will be OK.

    The fact that the ad states the table is slate - and now we find it's not - has me concerned.

    The distance being a major factor, I'd look for a 6' bar table that IS slate.

    Valley comes to mind but I'm not sure they make a 6-footer...

    Unless your basement is abnormally dry (relative humidity never above 60% and temps never below 55ยบ) I would stay away. For another 200 you could find a slate unit.

    I'm sorry I did not say it correctly as I do not have the proper vocabulary. The playing surface is one piece slate, what I meant to say the "framework" is laminated particle board not wood.

    Laminate particle board for the side boards/rails is no a problem - as long as the basement is not prone to high humidity or dampness.

    Slate play surface - and balls, racks and some sticks? Sounds like a good deal to me ;)

    Thank you for your input. If it does not snow too much on the weekend hopefully we will go get it.
