Pool Table Question

I found somebody selling there pool table because she is moving to texas. I know nothing about pool tables but it would be a great addition to my new house. I couldnt find the name of the table but I know its a play master 8ft table with ball return. It comes with a bunch of cues, rack, balls, rack even a stained glass light for above it. Couldnt really find specifics for any play master tables and I couldnt even find any online with the ball return. The felt has no marks other then a lot of pet hair, wood is all in great shape but some of the painted markings around the top of it are fading away. 300 dollars for everything. Hoping there are some pool people here who can tell me what to look out for. Checked out a lot of sites that sell pool items and looks like you can pretty much change/customize everything you want on the table pretty easily.

A good table can set one back $7000....on the flip side some pay you to just haul it away. Take a few pics and look for the manuf. $300 is a gamble as it will cost doubt that to move and set it up properly if it's a decent one. The cues are likely cheeps at $5-10.

Ive been looking online sales for pool tables and I cant find anything under 600 dollars. I figured if I pick it up for 300 and pay a pro to set it up, i'm doing ok. Il give this guy a call and see if he can find which model it is.

So, it the table is ANY table and in decent condition, $300 with the balls and cues is a great way to get started.

The cues are most likely as Kruz said, worth $10 a piece, but they may be nicer, who knows. A decent one-piece Dufferin cue new and straight in volume is $13. Custom cues can be easily from $500-700 entry up to $20k and higher depending on woods, maker, etc...

Typically, after $2k for a custom cue, they never play any better for more money.

Fro the table, $300 to pick up, $200-400 to recover and set up depending on what cloth that you select.

Sounds like a good deal. There was also a member on this board that was GIVING away a table a while back, I was gonna take it and then I think Kegger wanted it, so I backed out (I already have three pool tables).

Anyhow, I have no idea if Kegger ever picked it up, so you may want to check in to that one as well.

Either way, when you are ready, we play pool together many Tuesday nights. We'll have to have you come over and play sometime. We have new players and pro-level players alike.

Tons of fun either way.

Best of luck,

Brian

oh, and about the pool table, make sure you get a pro to set it up and balance it for you. But yes, that's a smokin deal. My parents left theirs behind because it was too difficult to move.
