  • Pool table cloth

    Hi all, I found an old thread (that I actually contributed to) from about 5 years ago.
    I’m trying to find out if Strachan 6811 is still regarded as one of the best options for a pool table.
    It’s used only once or twice a month so wear isn’t a problem. I basically want the best quality cloth I can get. I also quite like the look of the grey cloth the IPA use but I’m not sure what that is?
    Did you put my "1" up ?

      The Strachan 861 is the same thing as the Simonis 861, so search for both and you might get a better price.

      It's a napless cloth, so quite different to the Strachan 6811

          Just read up and it says Strachan 861 is mainly used for 9 ball tables
          if it is like normal 9 ball tables I’ve played on I think it will be way too fast for an English eight ball table?

            it will test your cue ball control

              I totally agree Dean but I don’t believe my eyes lol.
              I think I’ll go for the Hainsworth match cloth, I’m not good enough for playing on a cloth with no nap!
              thanks for your help

                I think I’ve made a mistake!
                It was the cloth the EPA use I liked not the IPA!
                It appears to be Strachan Superfine, has anyone played on this cloth at all?
