I have owned several types of tables. My first table was an old 4 foot by 8 foot Brunswick. The next table I owned was a 4 1/2 foot x 9 foot Gandy the model was circle G. My next table was a Murray also 9 foot. I have since owned several 3 1/2 by 7 foot Valley Billiard tables (also known as bar box or coin opp).
I've played on many other types of tables and at this time would have to say that my personal favorite would be the Brunswick Gold Crown or the Diamond Smart table.
Let's get the size straight right now. You will hear many people say that they have a regulation size pool table. What is regulation size? Some people think the four and a half foot by nine foot is regulation. (A.K.A the big tables)
The truth as I know it to be is that any pool table that is exactly twice as long as it is wide is regulation.
I have played on tables that range from 3 foot x 6 foot all the way up to a 6 foot by 12 foot Snooker Billiards Table.
This 12 footer is a monster and it looks like a golf course or foot ball field. You will learn that shape above the side pocket is a must, because 12 feet is a long way to try and stretch out.
One important thing to consider when you are shopping for billiard tables is the size of your room. I think that there is nothing worse than playing on a pool table that is to big for the room.
