I have a problem where the billiard balls roll very erratically and inconsistently on the new pool table cloth I installed.
First let me say, I've watch many videos about resurfacing my pool table, and have actually resurfaced my pool table one time (except for the rails). It looked and worked fine.
Then I bought new cloth. It is a worsted 80/20, 24 oz cloth, it said. It cost me $185. Now I have installed the new cloth on the rails and the surface. I re-leveled the pool table first and cleaned it.
The problem is that the when the balls slow down they roll erratically and inconsistently. It's not a leveling issue. When a ball slows down it appears to actually wobble. This occurs all over the pool table, and not just in one spot.
It's hard to say without seeing and feeling the cloth installation in person, but a few thoughts come to mind:
I will assume that this didn't happen with your old cloth, thus ruling out the balls themselves as a cause.
I am not doubting your cloth installation skills, but is the cloth stretched uniformly throughout the pool table, and was it aligned squarely when being stretched? If it wasn't stretched in a perfectly uniform manner, it will bunch up (and thus, be more dense) in the areas not stretched consistently.
Is the cloth you bought a "napped" or "napless" pool table cloth? It would be napless, preferably, as a napped cloth will certainly cause the issue you mentioned.
Best of luck figuring it out. It sucks to be out the $200 and have a pool table that plays worse than when you started.
