The surface is just pure glass
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…
