    with Star contract due for renewal early next year, I am sure World Snooker is doing a renewal process and checking the competition
    Maybe this event is being used for test purposes. ?

      Thanks Dean. I did check if an existing thread had been opened but couldn't find anything.

        I emailed the Rasson company and asked them if the table was being used for any other events in future other than the CofC and the spokeswoman said they weren't sure yet but it's definitely being supplied for the CofC...

        That more or less amounts to a we'll see what the response is from the players and WS etc at the CofCs and then it'll be considered if both parties want to use it for other events....

          Interesting Chris.
          Has anyone had a play on one of these bad boys yet?

            Equally interested to know what players think of this table. I'm not opposed to the look but personally prefer the natural leather pockets on their website from an ascetic and aiming point of view to the black leather.

              Hopefully these tables aren't going to be the official table when the renewal comes up. I also think the traditional mahogany cushions and leather looks better than this other table. I would have also thought that the 8 ball table maker Joy may make a bid to be official table supplier but id say Star will probably get the renewal.

                I think you could be right there,
                but any one think that Wakari (?) and Shender may have a go again?

                    Any competitive tender would include them, surely Dean?

                              apparently the Rasson table has a nice levelling screw system to actually make it idiotproof for fitters to make it level. But cushions prolly cant compare... Pockets look too big in the corners. Like Wiraka, probably 84 or 85 mm.
