LET GCL BILLIARDS RERUBBER OR REPLACE YOURE SUPREME POOL TABLE CUSHIONS BY A QUALIFIED BILLIARDS FITTER

 

A set of the new black rubber cushions .

This week fitting in between work , I am rerubbering 4 sets of 7ft Supreme Pool cushions 2 sets for a client and one for myself to use on a rental table the other a spare set for stock  , I will be useing the new Black rubber which lasts far longer than the original red rubber used in the manufactureing of Supreme winner and prince tables for many years, 
Supreme recently have changed to use black rubber now because of the problem with the hard dead red rubber which happens to tables around 4 to 5 years old or where a table is kept in a cold room , if you are suddenley experiencing a dead cushion or two , then the others are not far behind , the only solution is to rerubber the whole set of  cushions or buy brand new set of cushions from the Factory which will cost you around £120 /£140 per set , which we can also supply.
If the woodwork of the cushions are good then a rerubber is the most cost efective way of solving the problem of dead cushions , I carry a stock of old cushions with good woodwork that I will be rerubbering for exchange with youre old cushions at just £80 per set with the guarentee of the better black rubber being used
. the old red rubber is not good so avoid firms useing this.

I have recently experienced tables where just one cushion was replaced by the last fitter or firm , this is not going to stop the other 5 going rock hard soon after , and is false economy . youre takings wil also go down as players refuse to play on a table with no bounce in the cushions.
Being a time served billiards fitter , I have been trained in the art of Rerubbering in not just pool tables but such games as Bar Billiards , Bagatelle , bumper pool , American pool with triangle shaped rubber, and Full sized snooker tables to match template pocket openings . 
Youre pool table will suddenly play like new once a rerubber and recover has been completed by GCL BILLIARDS.

***GCL BILLIARDS also rerubber other makes of pool tables , but we do not have spare sets in stock to get ready so have to do all work on site rather than exchange ( unless they are brand new from manufacturer ) , please call for a quote . also some tables use smaller rubber such as super league which is 5/8th rubber and not full size like supreme tables ***.

2 more pool tables at Newark receive the GCL BILLIARDS treatment of professional Recover and full internal clean out of rail system


Two out of these 6 Winner supreme pool tables received a recover and full internal degrease and clean of internal ball rails and ramps by GCL billiards Yesterday , some of the best pool players around the counties of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire play at this venue in Newark town centre , just like more snooker clubs these days , Newark cue club has gone from a fully 8 snooker table only club to just 4 full size snooker tables and 6 winner supreme 7×4 pool tables all with the new pro lighting  , along with an excellent Professional 3 board darts Room that has just had it’s wall dismantled to open plan it up into the main club .
The pool players are off to play in a tournament at Great yarmouth this weekend , good luck to all the players taking part .

as can be seen here when you place a £20 note under the Electronic level it is showing 0.1 out of true , when the note is removed the reading is 0.0 , I use a combination of an engineers level and this digital level to get the best results when re-leveling a Pool table

we have had a massive influx of orders for re-covering pool tables , and I guess that is down to the winter leagues just starting , we are that busy that I am having to work weekends and evenings to catch up . the hire of pool tables is also busy with another pool table ordered for two weeks time in a local pub , the current hire people just cannot maintain the table to the high standards of the pool teams and pub managers / owners , the Landlord expressed his disapointment in failed call outs to put the table right , this has resulted in GCL,s gain and their loss .
We are true Cue sports people and we only maintain Pool and Snooker tables and that is why we are so thorough in what we do as we are not side tracked by having to put Juke boxes or gameing machines right , we do not deal in coin slot gaming machines only cue sports tables . and we also include two recovers a year in our rental agreement . Backed up by a time served Billiards fitter who knows how to get the table performing level and trouble free .
