Playcraft is a popular company that makes some of the world's most fashionable types of billiard tables. One of the top tables that is made by the company is the Southport Nine Foot Institutional table. This is a table that is similar to that of what can be found in a variety of professional billiard competitions and even in some bars. This table can be used to create a bar atmosphere in the comfort of one's home.

The length of the table is by far the biggest thing to see here. The table is nine feet long, thus creating one of the largest play areas that can work with billiards games. This is a great advantage to see in that a good billiard table will work with a variety of different regulation games.

The feel of the table was incredibly realistic. A one inch Brazilian slate bed was used on this table. This bed that goes underneath the felt was very firm and durable and was able to handle balls as they were dropped onto the surface of the table. This is one of the best features of the Southport table.

The finish of the table is a brilliant feature to see. This table has a cherry wood finish with a series of legs that are supported by long wooden planks and unique looking stands. This is one of the most beautiful parts of the table. It makes this look like something that can work with a great bar look to it. This also makes it so the balls will not easily fall out of pockets that could end up wearing out over time.

An important part of this table that makes it different from other tables is the way how the pockets work. The pockets work like a standard bar table would in that it has rails that are elevated to where all of the balls that are hit into the pockets will roll into one end of the table. This is convenient and has made the table work with even more of a realistic feel.

The cost of this table is high at about three thousand dollars. However, the thing about the Southport table is that it is about as valuable as that of some fancy looking tables that are only seven or eight feet in length. This means that this table can provide a person with more table space for the buck.
