Let's be honest. As a pool player- winning matters. While dedication and practice is the ultimate approach to becoming a better player; the wrong gear could certainly stunt your potential. These items have been proven time and time again to give you the advantage on the table. Don't deny yourself any longer, utilize these great items to become a better pool player today!
Number 5: Professional Simonis Cloth
For players who play at home and a pool hall, playing at home on standard, slower cloth can be a huge game changer- Especially when you have to re-adjust to faster cloth your local pool hall is probably using. What better way to replicate the speed of cloth at the pool hall than bringing it to your table at home? Not only does professional worsted wool cloth provide a more fun, faster game. It also last considerably longer, making it an investment that truly pays for itself!
I recommend Simonis 860 cloth. Or, for a cloth that is just as fast but built to last even longer, go with the Simonis 860 High Resistance. Both of these exceptional quality, professional billiard cloths come in a wide variety of colors, and ship quickly!
Number 4: Pool Table Lights
This one may seem like a no-brainer. But our pool table mechanics are always shocked to see the amount of customers playing at home with no lights dedicated to their pool table. Not only does proper lighting make it easier to truly judge distance and provide more accurate depth perception- the reduced strain on your eyes makes it a difference that is seriously night and day.
We offer an absolutely massive selection of pool table lights to match any room style or budget. White LED bulbs are recommended. View our selection of pool table lights here
Number 3: Professional Billiard Balls
Not all ball sets are created equal. Professionals around the world unanimously agree that phenolic resin precision honed balls are the only ones acceptable for accurate play. Plastic ball sets, or even cheaply made phenolic sets will not provide a true roll. This means that you may be shooting accurately, but without a true roll, you can still miss shots that would have been made with a high quality ball set.
Brunswick Centennial balls are ground and polished to exacting radial tolerances of 0.001 of an inch for absolutely true and accurate roll. They are so reliable and true, that they are the only balls good enough for use in our own pool hall. Aramith billiard balls are also of an incredible quality, at a more affordable price point. A true professional set of billiard balls are an absolute must for players looking to improve their pool game.
Number 2: Aramith Aiming by The Numbers Training Set
Pool is a game of accuracy. You can have the best gear money can buy but at the end of the day, if you aren't shooting accurately you aren't going to make as many balls. Practice makes perfect and the Aramith Aiming by The Numbers Training Set is the ultimate way to get the most out of your time practicing. Endorsed by world champion Mike Massey and professional instructor Joe Tucker who says "The whole package is the clearest, most complete explanation of any aiming system available."
Number 1: Low Deflection Pool Cues
