Cloth on this Second Hand Pool Table

Cloth on this Second Hand Pool Table

I would like to ask for your personal opinion on the quality of this pool table cloth in the photo below.

It is for home use only and I just want the balls to roll as smoothly as they would on a pub pool table for instance.

    Has the texture and weaave of Simonis 860. Has enough pock marks on it to qualify as end-of-like on my home table. Since it is going to cost you to have ti removed from the current table so the table can be moved, it may be problematic to reinstall after the move. The tension is tight on the cloth, and after a new cloth is tensioned the excess is removed so there is little to grab onto so it can be retensioned. So, if the question is leave it on and play on it, sure use it for another year. However if the question is, remove it, more the table, and reuse it, go for new cloth. (my opinion)

    If Mitch is right - and I believe he is, the pock marks could simply be chalk marks. If so, a carpet tool attachment with "beater-bar" on a household vacuum might bring it back.

    If they're "burn marks" from ball spin, they ain't comin' off.

    I'd find out what a new cloth installed runs and use that number as a price negotiation tool.

    Let us know how you make out.
