Olhausen Pool Table Tight Pocket Issue

Olhausen Pool Table Tight Pocket Issue

I bought a 7' Olhausen pool table and I am finding it hard to enjoy because the pockets are extremely tight and will not tolerate any degree of ball speed higher than a slow roll.

I have played on Diamond tables that also have that reputation, and find the Olhausen table to be much less tolerant by comparison. It is understood that a soft shot is usually a good idea, but it is also sometimes necessary to shoot somewhat hard in order to get the cue ball where you want it to be for next shot. I have put up with the aggravation for nearly three years and seriously considering a change.

I am interested in hearing opinion as to which brands of upscale table are more tolerant of ball speed, and otherwise nice to own for any reason. I would also be interested to know if others have shared this experience with an Olhausen table.
