Cushion Rubber: Part 2

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Not all pool table cushion rubber is created equal. Depending on the type of rubber, age and environmental conditions, typical cushion rubber lasts about 20 years. Some a little less, some a little more. And then there are the exceptions to the rule. Take our Looking Good at 40 pool table. Master Fast cushion rubber 40 years old and still has a great bounce. Then there is the 12 year old pool table with dead cushions. Cracked and as hard as a rock, this pool table was nearly impossible to play on. We will replace it with soft, flexible cushion rubber to make it play like new. Even worse, we have a 3 year old American Heritage pool table in the shop for a recushion job. Unfortunately the $7000 price tag on this beauty, didn’t include decent cushion rubber. No matter the age of the pool table, if you feel like your cushions aren’t responding the way they should, give us a call. We can arrange to get your pool table cushions bouncing great again.
