When hustlers in the distant future fancy a few frames, they won’t be racking up on some baize-covered antique made from wood and slate. No, they’ll probably knock their balls about on something resembling the truly stunning G-1 Glass Pool Table.
The ultimate in ball-pocketing show-offery, this astonishing slice of ultra-modern design will completely redefine your perception of pool, without changing the gameplay one iota. Built to order by our Antipodean friends at Nottage Design, the award-winning G-1 employs patented technology to maximise your pool-shooting pleasure.
We’re talking premium quality 15mm Monolithic Float glass with exposed polished edges, a lightweight skeletal frame with fully-visible ball-return mechanism, BCA-spec pockets and K-66 bumpers. No, we’re not entirely sure what all that means but the G-1 looks awesome and plays like a dream. It even comes in a custom range of powder-coated colours.
Perfect for your penthouse!
By now you’re probably wondering how a glass surface can possibly replicate the rolling resistance of baize. Put simply it can’t. That’s why the G-1’s toughened glass is topped with a patented Vitrik playing surface.
Serious ball action!
This hard wearing material plays like an average speed cloth, allowing spin to be applied and retaining consistent roll characteristics over its lifetime. You’ll never know the difference – unless an opponent clambers under the table, drops their troos and pulls a face when you’re attempting to sink the 8 ball.
Needless to say a table this radical doesn’t come cheap, so thank goodness Nottage have seen fit to throw in balls, a triangle, aluminium cues and a bridge stick. Then again, if you’ve got a stylish enough pad to accommodate a G-1, money should be the last thing on your mind. So what are you waiting for? 50p stake, winner stays on. Your break…
The transparent playing area is composed of the patented Vitrik transparent playing surface on top of a 15mm toughened glass top.
The Vitrik playing surface replicates the rolling resistance of an average speed cloth. It is hard wearing and allows spin (English) to be applied and retains consistent roll characteristics over its lifetime.
The glass is premium quality 15mm Monolithic Float glass with exposed polished edges. Glass is naturally very rigid and flat, and isn’t prone to sagging or warping, so provides a great alternative to slate for a game of pool.
