How To Decide Between A New Pool Table And A Used Pool Table

Pool tables are big investments that are not just meant for yourself but also your guests. With this in mind, the task of buying a pool table can be daunting. At Extreme Billiards Indy, we want to remove any anxiety from your shopping experience by providing you with an array of options to choose from. As the Hoosier state’s most trusted name in the industry, we provide you with precise craftsmanship in both new and used pool tables. To help you decide between the two, our team has broken down a guide to selecting which pool table to invest in.


If you are most concerned with price, then you will most likely lean towards purchasing a used table. Due to the fact that they aren't in mint condition at the point of purchase, used pool tables are often at a cheaper listing relative to newer tables. If you are not worried about the impact the purchase will have on your wallet, then you can ignore price and advance to the following considerations.


Anyone who has played on an aged pool table is familiar with their flaws: they wobble with uneven feet, their rail cushions don’t bounce, the felt is fading, and more. Because of these traits, used pool tables may need repair and maintenance to ensure they’re up to snuff when visitors come over to play. Due to possible required maintenance, you may opt for buying a new pool table.


Used pool tables may have an antique feeling that is absent in newer tables. But new tables come in a variety of styles that are tough to pass up, including Imperial, the Washington, and the Penelope. Whether you want an ornate style or a modern option, by shopping at Extreme Billiards Indy you can find the look you are searching for in a variety of colors that stand out.


Another consideration when shopping for a pool table is your background playing the game. If you are a novice, you may be okay settling for a product that has a bit of wear and tear. If you are a weathered billiards expert, then you are more likely to have high standards for your table meaning you are inclined to spend on a brand new product.

With these four factors in mind, you are ready to rack up the balls and set up the cue. With the help of our team of experts at Extreme Billiards Indy, you can find the perfect pool table for your situation, new or used.
