East Coast Brunswick Finds Home in Orange County
We recently uncrated the slates and setup up this Contender Series Brunswick in Newport Beach, California. Installation went smoothly and we used the existing Navy Blue cloth that was removed during disassembly. It is ready to play in time for the holiday season.
It is worth noting that Contender Series pool tables do not have standard K-66 profile rubber. Instead, the rubber is a bit thinner and a different shape than nearly every pool table on the market. The odd L-shape of the cushions give the balls an unusual bounce. Also, these rails will most likely need to be modified down the road when it comes time to replace the rubber bumpers, as standard K-66 (or U-23, K-55 for that matter) will not fit properly. This process will likely create additional fees for recushioning service.
