Diamond Pro-Am Billiards Table

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

For many people, pool is a light recreational activity, which goes well with company. However, for some people, pool is a delicate game of chess. For those who demand the highest standards of play, Diamond has put forward an amazing billiards table, in the Pro-Am.

While many pool tables are built with two or three pieces of slate, the Pro-Am is constructed from one solid piece of slate. What this offers is a much more consistent roll on balls, undisturbed by small lines or spaces between slabs of slate. On many pool tables, slow rolling balls can miss the mark because of imperfections on the slate itself. While most of these are dulled with the use of felt, slow rolling balls are the most affected. With a single piece of slate, balls are much easier to control, and the consistency the table offers is brilliant for players who demand a high standard of billiards table.

The felt, is of a very high quality. It stands up well to repeated use, even for those who play every day. Te table itself, is beautiful and has a very quality feel to it, as it should for around $4,000 for a 9 foot table. While that may seem expensive, the table should have a very long life.

Leveling the Pro-Am is fairly simple, with a 22 point leveling design. The whole feel of the table is professional. The pockets are easy to grab the balls from and even when they are getting full, the balls do not seem to pop out, as they generally do on less expensive pool tables. The rails are sturdy, which is great for making a lot of trick shots, as one does not feel they will break when leaning on them.

The ball action is simply amazing. Whether the shot is "masse" or "english" or straight, the balls roll quickly and quietly. There is not might fighting the pool table, as there is with cheaper tables. There does not seem to be any bias to overcome either. This makes playing very exact, just what one would expect from a high-end pool table.
