Pool Table Reviews
Cuszoom Pool Table Review
It has been a great year so far at Robbies with our new "Exclusive Lifetime Guarantee Program" combined with our premium vendors like Brunswick, Olhausen, and Legacy Billiards, especially in the Pool Table category. Our Kensington Maryland "Design Center" draws a very diverse range of customers looking for everything under the Sun to complete their vision for a dream entertainment space. Styles are changing and customer taste varies from Maryland, to Virginia, to DC, then out to the rural areas of West Virginia. We would like to present a list of our most popular and best selling pool tables of 2012. This list is not necessarily by volume but also by price range, showroom presence, and intangible "hotness".
Very few new pool tables fall into the highly affordable sub $2,000 price range. Early in the 2000's oversees manufacturing began to drive down the cost of entry level slate pool tables. Before 2001 your main option under $2,000 was an ugly laminate box with 3/4" slate and plastic pockets. These "basement dwellers" were an eye sore but played fairly well and still lurk in many Man Caves. Much has changed with the advent of import pool tables and less expensive manufacturing techniques. You will not find many premium tables for under 2 Grand as most of what you see online is "off brand" and available from fly-by-night drop shippers running web site only stores. If you know where to look, however, there are some VERY good deals to be had for less than $2,000. Here is our list of the Best Pool Tables for under $2,000.
Over the years we have traveled deep into the West Virginia Appalachian mountains and to beach homes on Maryland's Eastern Shore helping customers outfit vacation homes or rental properties. Other than a Hot Tub, the Pool Table is the ultimate recreation activity of choice for upscale vacation homes in this area. Because we have experience setting so many different styles of pool tables here is a list of the "best selling" pool tables for Vacation Homes in Maryland, Virginia, DC, West Virginia, and even Southern Pennsylvania.
Welcome again from the Billiard Congress of America annual trade show! Vegas was the venue and the new product introductions were almost as hot as the weather. Major trends this year included more custom high end product than ever for those recession proof home entertainers (or those of us just dreaming). Here are some highlights:
New for Fall 2011 is the Olhausen Games Furniture Air Hockey. Buyers can take any Olhausen Billiards 7' Pool Table and have a commercial grade Air Hockey table surface instead of a pool table play surface. Made in the USA, talk about custom!
This is one of the coolest thing at the show this year: The Darafeev "Mann" spectator chair Cigar Aficionado Edition. Not only is this the only sprung seat reclining spectator chair made, this edition features a built in Cigar Humidor, hidden extendable cigar ash trays, drink holders, and storage for cutters, matches, and anything else you would need in a high-end gentleman's lounge! Totally unique custom built and priced around $1,995.
Last but not least, this is a prototype for a new production pool table by Brunswick Billiards. Available in Port finish on solid mahogany and featuring stainless steel accents this is going to be a hot seller for years to come! Tournament wide rails for the discriminating player and high end styling, all projected to sell for under $5,000! Might want to pre-order this one because it is sure to sell out by Thanksgiving.
