Bumper Pool Table Rectangular or Hexagonal?

Bumper Pool Table Rectangular or Hexagonal?

Am thinking of buying a bumper pool table.

Is rectangular better or hexagonal ?

I don't know much about this so any insight would be appreciated.

I am new to the forum so this might be the wrong place to ask this.

    To answer your question, they are rectangular in shape. The hexagonal ones you see are actually a three-in-one recreation table, and they are shaped that way for the poker usage.

    Actually, they are octagonal I guess.

    When you say they are made for poker, are you implying that they do not function well as bumper pool tables?

    Is it less authentic?

    Valley/Dynamo still makes the "classic" rectangular bumper pool table. It uses a 3/4" slate bed, measures around 3ft x 6ft and is reasonably sound.

    Aramith still manufactures bumper pool balls and they should not be too hard to get.

    Verhoeven, (famous for pocket-less carom billiard tables) actually makes some downright beautiful bumper pool tables...check out their Louis XIV "Golf billjarts" model.

    @billiardsforum is correct. Real Bumper tables are rectangular in shape.

    Table Dimensions: 54"L x 39"W x 31"H is the standard as far as I'm aware.
