Buying a Brunswick Gold Crown


Buying a Brunswick Gold Crown

I am going to look at a Gold Crown II tonight and want to make sure that I'm not over paying. I haven't seen any pictures but the guy guarantees that it will play well but says its "by no means showroom quality". I guess it has been painted several times, has dings and dents and needs to be refinished. He is asking $1,995 which includes delivery and installation and for $200 more I can get simonis 860 cloth. How much would you guys pay for such a table? I asked him for pictures so I'll post them when I get them.

I guess he also has a GC III for sale also that he is asking $2300 for that is in better condition. From the research I've done it seems that the GC III is not as well built. What do you guys think?

Thanks!

    I defer to those who know the line on model selection comparisons - but believe the prices quoted are "appropriate" until seen. Then, and only then, will the "appropriate" price be known.

    Light? Rack(s)? Balls? Bridges? Chairs? Sticks? And the condition of it all?

    @Resiak, welcome to the site.

    I can vouch for your comments regarding the Gold Crown 3. There are so many negative reviews for the Gold Crown III, and still a bunch more folks saying to get the Gold Crown 2 instead of a 3. Example:

    I would say: don't get a Gold Crown III. There are lots of those around here all installed at the same time and all with problems. Among other things: the slates are not doweled (with brass pins from one section going into the adjoining one) and this can lead to unevenness more quickly. Other problems include cushions (many dead and dying, already), pocket liners, plating...

    The guy goes on to say that there are flaws present in series 1 through 3.

    Might want to look at Gold Crown 4 or above?

    As an aside only: MynBrunswick "Medalist" is perceived to be the Crown series - without the bells or whistles, designed for hard play at billiard parlors who needed durability over "high grade furniture" appearances - yet meets the quality serious players that would frequent a "billiards parlor" want - in a semi-professional level of table.

    For me, I'd want a pool table - not a piece of furniture! Dollar for dollar, unless looks outweighs function and price, I'd stay clear of the entire Crown series and opt for the Medalist - all things being equal...

    The local "Craig's List" is still the resource I see as most likely to bring a good result. Then too, Costco has some table deals that are really excellent deals. I wouldn't buy elsewhere until I scoped Costco out...
