7 Best Pool Table Felts

1.     Simonis 760

The 760 felt one of the best ones from Simonis that is famous for its top-notch table cloth. This felt is impressive and long-lasting, and you can easily play thousands of games on this felt. It will remain new for a long time. It is available in 3 different sizes and 5 beautiful colors.

Note: This pool table doesn’t represent the mentioned felt

8’ Proform table felt is made from the worsted fabric. This felt comes in blue and is constructed with 70% wool and 30% nylon. The nylon blend in this felt helps to keep the felt from wrinkles and increasing its age.

Key Features

  • Nap-free

  • Made from 70% wool and 30% nylon.

Cons

  • There is no disadvantage because it is the best according to its price.

3.     Simonis 860

As you have learned, Simonis is emerging with first-class pool table felts. Just like the 760, Simonis 860 gives you a great deal with the combination of 90% worsted wool and 10% nylon. This felt is best for sluggish tables, which people use at local tournaments.

  • Best cloth for a 9-foot table

Cons

  • It is expensive like its fellow 760 felt, but the cost is 100% worth it.
  • Not a lot of cloth slack, make sure whoever is installing it doesn’t overcut and is experienced with Simonis felt.

I have to say though – if you have the money. This is TOTALLY worth it!
