    If anyone checks this it was over a year ago I started the project I'd restoring a 100 year old Brunswick 5x10 snooker table. I am happy to say it is complete and beautiful! I will pay pics here when I very home later. Unless there is somewhere else more appropriate to post pics?

    That would work, but unfortunately, the light is not changing.

    Their pool cloths come in many colours.
    In theory it wouldn't be difficult to dye, if it could be delivered in enough time before fitting.

    @OP: But it may have to be something darker than the original. Go try Mumsnet and\or a sewing clothes making Forum?

    I just read the Simonis snooker cloth thread and I am not impressed with the reviews. I think I will, for the sake of everyone involved, no matter what color, go with their fast 760 cloth, not the snooker cloth. And jrc750, I totally understand

    If you wouldn't, why? Is it a purist thing or a color thing, or something else? I'm really curious about all of this and trying to learn as much as possible.

    I wouldn't personally in a million years, but if it keeps the wife happy that could be worthwhile ehh

    Great way to put it.

The speed of run through and slowness on screw shots are the main difference but having grown up playing on anything I personally think this provides strength to a "learner" of both games.

    Bottom line, any new snooker/pool talent will need talent - that will wonderfully always be evident in their first endeavours regardless of materials.
    Please keep the comments coming. I am still completely unsure of what to do and always willing to listen. You never know, yours may be the comment to sway me. So far, Cuecrafty is winning! LOL

    An excellent thread opener, imho.

    I raised it in the Champ of Champs thread too re that table, carpet and surround would look better with a silver\grey cloth.

    That's the thing, I am not a snooker player and I am just getting into it. I'm definitely a newbie. There are literally no snooker tables that I can find within 60 miles of me. I haven't found any private tables yet either. Simonis offers the snooker cloth with directional nap in English green only. Simonis makes their 760 model cloth which is fast but not directional. Being a 10' table my kids will be able to play American pool on it as well (I think I can purchase 2 1/8th balls and I will have 2 1/16th snooker balls). Obviously I would have to give up some of the trueness of a snooker table to have a different color and have it playable for the kids. Still, opening this discussion to have just that an open discussion on the matter.
