    can anyone take few pictures of the standard pockets on a full size table? both corner/side pockets. it will be great to have 1 or 2 balls to show the size of pocket. the reason i'm asking is that our pool hall just received a full size STAR table, but the corner pockets are so tight, it's only about 3". so, really appreciate someone's help
    Well I always understood that, purely in terms of measurement, the corner pockets should be 3½" wide, and the middle pockets, 4".

      Was there a diagram in this picture? I have the hardest time understanding the measurement of the pocket drop, I get the 3 and half inches and all, but would be nice if the program is back.

      I also wonder if there are pocket kits to tighten the pockets, like a strip of cushion can be attached to your pockets, making them "less undercut" to make pockets tighter.

        would be great is Star made the templates available to purchase. According to them there's a set for World Snooker services and another at Star. If you purchase a Star table new they don't even use the world snooker official template which many snooker rooms have found out.
        Only way to get the same as an event is to purchase a table after a pro event which is what i did.

          Was you there on strip down to make sure all parts from that table went onto the van to deliver to you ?
          I have seen some so called tournament final tables slates in private homes and clubs , where not the ones used and could never have been , same can be said for some cushion sets .
          a prime example is the BCE final table that cliff thorburn made his 147 break on in 1983 .

          this table was sold three time to three different clubs

          one was the first frame in Nottingham , the slates had lumps in them and where not true enough to have been used for a finals table on TV .

          I was then informed of another club in Wales and one in Portsmouth also having a wall plaque up saying the table was the one used in Thorburns televised 147 break

          all the fitters after consultation and input we found the cushions where used in the Portsmouth table and the Slates in Wales and the frame in the FIRST FRAME CLUB .
