Tables

United Pool Tables

United Billiards makes a decent pool table. They only use felt by Championship, one of the best brands in the business. They also give you 31 different options for its color which is incredible. All tables use 1″ thick slate which is great. I’m not thrilled that the only wood options are oak or maple, two of the cheapest woods there are. At least they are solid wood and not laminate. Not a lot of size options on their tables which is kind of bad. Some are 7 feet, some are 8, some are both and none are 9 feet long. That’s ok though, as most people just want a 7 foot table anyway. My biggest problem with United is no clear way to buy their table. There is a phone number to call which sucks because I hate dealing with sales people. Tables should be good enough to sell themselves, so post a price and a way to buy the darn thing online. I never bother with a billiard company who makes me call them, but that’s your own decision. Here are their models:

Aspen
Breckenridge
Burlington
Copper
Englewood
Fairview
Kensington
Keystone
Steamboat
Sterling
Taylor
Telluride
Vail
Victoria
Windsor

Fischer Pool Tables

Fischer pool tables are made by C.L. Bailey, same company basically. Think of it like Toyota and Lexus. The only difference here is that Fischer pool tables are no better or worse than C.L. Bailey. They seem to only come in 7 or 8 feet, but that’s about the only difference in quality. Both have lifetime guarantees as well as 1″ framed slate and solid construction. There may be a price difference as they go through dealers as well, so if you are trying to decide between a C.L. Baily or a Fischer table, just take the one that costs less, because they are essentially the same thing. Here are the Fischer pool tables:

Dutchess
Sorbonne
Alicante
Stratford
Duke
Modena
Lorient

ProLine Pool Tables

ProLine Billiards sells their pool tables through dealers, so no prices are posted on their website and they will vary depending on where you shop. The tables are pretty solid though. They all used slate and solid hardwood. They all seem to come in 7, 8 or 9 feet as well which is great. There is no option to customize colors of finish or cloth though. Here are their different models:

Chippendale
Kingsbury
Newport
Pendleton
Sorrel II
Berkley
Kamden
Nite Train
Wellington
Berkshire
Midnight Ride
St. Johns II

Pool Tables Plus

Pool Tables Plus sells several different pool tables. Some are custom made for them, some are from other manufacturers. Like I’ve said, if a pool table website has to sell other brands of pool tables besides their own, then their tables are probably not great. From the looks of it, their imports and domestic tables aren’t actually half bad. They just don’t have very many options. They come in hardwood with 1″ slate which is good, but you can only choose between two colors or size sometimes. Other sites let you customize length, cloth color, finish and other stuff like that. Not true here. And Pool Tables Plus charges more than the sites that do allow these things. Probably ought to steer clear and look elsewhere. Here are their tables:

Import
Fillmore
Manhattan
McKinley
Roosevelt
Springfield
Van Buren

Domestic
Bridgeport
Fairfax
Monticello
Santa Maria
Saratoga

Palason Pool Tables

Palason is a Canadian brand of pool table. On their website they also sell Legacy and Brunswick brand tables which I think is kind of weird, but all the power to them. It tells you something if a pool table manufacturer is selling someone else’s tables as on of their dealers. All their tables are pretty modestly priced, but there is no mention of slate so you probably aren’t getting any which is a bummer. The tables are not shipped free and don’t come with any accessories either. You’re much better off going directly to Legacy or PoolTables.com and finding similar looking tables for less at a higher quality with free stuff included. Here are the Palason models:

St-Laurent
Dawson
Deluxe Oak Veneer
Citadelle
Fraser
Victoria
Sentinelle
Contessa
