Types of Felt

The felt covering on a pool table is vital for the playing surface, as it greatly affects both the game’s performance and visual appeal.
When it comes to casual or competitive use, opting for 303 grade felt provides a cost-effective solution.
505 grade felt suits highly competitive players, while tournament-grade fabric provides superior performance and durability, making it perfect for professionals and those pursuing peak performance. We generally recommend 303 felt to most customers.
Felt comes in two varieties: standard and worsted. Worsted is a refined type known for its smoother and faster playing surface, similar to that of European Pool Tables. However, it generally comes at a higher price point.
On the other hand, the standard felt is more popular, with its unique fuzzy texture.
Our custom-designed felt offers a cost-effective alternative to online options. It allows you to personalize your pool table with your logo or favorite sports team brand, making it truly unique. Although this type of felt caters to more casual players, it still includes a one-year warranty, minimizing the likelihood of any damage occurring.

Re-felting Process

In St. Louis, our movers exhibit exceptional care during the felting process. They utilize pliers to safely remove all staples from the old felt, leaving no metal pieces behind that could pose a risk to pets or result in an unintended injury.

Quality takes precedence over speed in our approach to completing the job. While we could finish it faster, we prioritize avoiding any risks to pets by thoroughly removing hidden staples from the carpet.

When replacing the felt on the slate, we utilize spray adhesive to establish a secure bond. This method offers a neater and cleaner alternative to stapling, minimizing the potential for any mess.
For a professional finish, we meticulously cover the pockets by enveloping the slate with strips of felt, ensuring a seamless and polished appearance.

*Rail felt is included with the rest of the felt.
