Alright guys I have noticed a few of you have a pool table in your house. I am ready to buy one for our new house and wondering what kind you guys have and if you are pleased with it.

Piece of crap table for $50 from the Elk's Lodge. Bumpers are dead but rolls fairly true. Every time I play on it I think about recovering it. Every weekend when there are 6 teenagers playing, including girls (girls don't play any worse, it is just that the level of serious play goes down ;) ) I am sure my kids are glad that I don't have to keep an eye on the table or nag anybody to watch what yer doin' :headbang:
leisure bay-only problem is that i don't get to play enough. table is outstanding! i'll try and take a pic without the cover.

We bought an Olhausen. Built a room in the basement and now have party central. Saves money on the weekends-don't have to pay for pool, beer, or babysitters. I think there are four sizes available. We had a room big enough we got the full size-9' long. I think you need a room about 14 x 18 to use full length sticks. Go to Olhausen.com to see a room sizing chart for all the table and stick sizes.
$3500 and it came with ping pong set up, sticks, balls, chalk, cover, installation.

I too had an Olhausen, when I was growing up. Parents still have it at their house as I don't have room for it at my house. Maybe one day when I move to the lake I'll have room for it.

There was a story in either Time or Newsweek last summer about a gaming co. who had recently closed their retail space to sell strictly on Ebay. They got written up because of the quantity & quality of tables they were selling..... and free shipping. Sounded like the quality was very good & the numbers they were selling was crazy. It might mean assembling it yourself or having someone come in to do it.
So I mentioned this to a neighbor of mine a few weeks ago when he was interested in getting a table. He bought & the table came & we assembled it. The instructions were great & assembly was pretty easy..... a couple hours & a six pack & we were shootin stick on a gorgeous table!
Wish I knew was brand it was. I'll ask him about it.
