Connelly going bankrupt?

Connelly going bankrupt?

Hi, I am in the early stages of buying a pool table. Connelly dealer makes a strong case for their entry level (Canyon series). Brunswick dealer says Connelly is has filed chapter 11. Anyone heard that? Also any comments on Brunswick vs Connelly vs Olhausen vs Other basic 'good' tables. Thanks.

    One name in billiards. Oulhausen. Beyond a shadow of a doubt. Best table I ever played. But it was layered in Simonis with Accu-fast cushions. Decked as good as it gets, best playing experience I ever had. Aramith balls. Damn that was a good day. Brunswick could save you some $ though and still amazing tables, years of reputation. Can't say I ever played a Connely. You sure they are going chapter 11? Then again, who isn't!?! =P - BTW I like Idaho spuds, sure are tasty, specially them lil red ones! I live in WA so we get em fresh from ya. We also steal your huckleberries, which are even better! =) I would buy an Oulhausen.

    Do you guys think that with toady's economy, billiard tables will become like automobiles? What I mean is that at one time, there was actually a difference in quality between the big car companies, but as cost cutting took over, they all more or less turned to shit. I wonder if that will happen with pool tables?

    You mean the Japanese will take over the billiards industry like Toyota and Nissan did to autos? I think billiard tables are such a luxury and art of craftsmanship that they will always be great investments. The question is, who the hell can afford one in today's economy? But, you never know, we will probably outsource table industries to China so we can take advantage of their cost effective child labor. Then it will be all over. Tables will be made of black pine, the slate will be chunks of poisonous lead and the felt will be made from what's left of the bengal tigers over there.

    Google "Connelly chapter 11" and the truth will fall into your sight.

    I have had a connelly redington for years, while it is an entry level table in the connelly series, I have had no problems with it and have recieved many compliments on it quality.
