Billiards vs Pool Tables
Billiards and pool tables, believe it or not, have a different table and ball size. In everyday speech, billiards refers to games played on a table with balls and a cue stick. This is mainly because the games are subsets of billiards. However, billiards as a game has its own independent rules, balls, table, and regulations from other table games. Billiards tables are bigger in size at 10ft x 5ft compared to the smaller choices of 7ft, 8ft, or 9ft for pool tables. Worsted wool is also used to cover the tables, which is a smoother and stronger material for billiards and professional grade pool tables. Unless otherwise specified, your home pool table will most likely be covered in woolen felt cloth. The reason for the different wool type is because the purpose of billiards is to hit your opponent’s striker ball against the sides of the table. For the best gameplay, the balls must hit faster and more accurately. Worsted wool is commonly used on professional pool tables. This is also referred to as speed cloth.
At our San Marcos location, our pool tables have slate backdrops rather than MDF (Medium density fiberboard) wood. The slate back completely alters the game. This enables the table to last longer, have smoother gameplay, and have an overall positive experience for both casual and professional players. MDF wood, while less expensive than slate, causes more drag on the pool balls. This causes them to move slower regardless of how hard you hit. The MDF wood may also warp or sag as a result of changes in temperature, humidity, and moisture around the pool table. If you spill a drink or it rains and you leave the window open by accident, you could cause serious damage to your MDF wood-backed pool table. You truly get what you pay for in the world of billiards. Slate pool tables do not take in moisture and so are less prone to warping. The table itself is more prone to warping than the slate backing, but the high-quality materials required to support the slate are still extremely durable. Because we believe in providing an exceptional experience for our customers, the vast majority of our pool tables for sale are slate. If you buy a pool table, you will get an excellent one for your personal game room.
