Is This a Decent Deal for an Olhausen table?


Is This a Decent Deal for an Olhausen table?

Hello all. I've been lurking for a little while. I am looking to buy a new table and have settled on either Olhausen Huntington or Santa Ana. Specs for both are the same by my choice--solid oak construction throughout with standard stain, pro-line elite 404 cloth, standard rails (this is actually a downgrade from the wider Cavalier rail that is the default for the Signature models) with basic diamond pearlized sights, and play package that is 3 action maple cues + bridge, pro series royal crown balls, triangle, table cover, brush, etc.

At this point I have considered a number of different manufacturers, upgrades, etc., and am happy with this set of options.

So...for either model + play package + delivery/install, the asking price is $3450 excluding sales tax. Plus with the Olhausen father's day special, I can get 2 free upgrades (will probably go with table tennis conversion and cue drawer, but a heritage stain or real MOP sights would be options too).

Simple question--is this a good deal, bad deal, or middle-of-the-road for either of these tables?

Thank you for your opinions!

    The quality of the install is as important as the "deal" - which, on the surface seems fine - if you won't consider a "used" table.

    New pool tables from Costco seem to result in a bigger bang for the buck but again, who does the install is key. Buying a Costco sponsored deal gives one lots of "leverage" - should things go bad.

    Then too, guess who'll be paying for the TV ads Olhausen seems to sponsor ad nauseam.

    I urge you to work a deal where the final payment is due 30 days after setup is completed. Just in case.

    Thanks; the installer has been doing tables for 35 years and also does the installs in my area for AE Schmidt, as well as lots of restoration for old and antique tables, so it would seem to likely be high quality.

    As long as he's not so busy as to require his "helper" to do it...

    Experience is key - and it sounds like you have the right guy.
