That's why people in marketing get paid the big bucks.

Actually once I got it home and played it a bit, I realized that a slate table is really worth the hassle/effort.

The table was wood, and fun to play, but there was no finesse to playing it. Just banging the balls around since they curve and dont roll well. A slate surface is much nicer.

So I sold it.

How much did you put into it to fix it up?

That first photo looks like it was taken with a camera phone or something.

I think it would be interesting to experiment and see if selling an item with the same photo, but a better description would work too.

Some people will complain about paying twice as much to play on the tables at an actual pool hall as they would on the table at a local bar. Until you get them to actually try it and their ball does what they want it to do. I was simply amazed the first time I saw a ball carom around the whole table with minimal effort.

With older wood tables there's always little divots where people have racked the balls or tried tricks and used one ball to try and tap another into place.
