Top 5 Reasons that Rasson Pool Tables are Used in World-Class Tournaments
Below, explore five major reasons that Rasson Professional Pool Tables are such a mainstay at the world’s top tournaments, including the EPBF, ICP, ECP, UMB, WPA, and many more.
1 – Rasson’s Consistency of Slate
After years as a leading provider of OEM billiards slate before manufacturing their own tables, Rasson knows the importance of meticulous accuracy. Their 30mm thick premium slate is sanded flat, with tolerances less than 0.1mm. This makes for not only a great playing experience, but unmatched consistency in feel and response from tournament to tournament.
2 – Superior Playability
From felt to rails, slate to frame, Rasson Professional Pool Tables are built with the player in mind. 30 individual rail holes (as opposed to 18 like many other tables) secure the rails and slate in place, providing for less shifting and more accurate ball response.
Similarly, French-made KLEMATCH P59 cushions provide the consistent, dependable bounce that pro players rely on for difficult shots, and Rasson’s patented TPE pockets are designed to reduce noise and ball rejection.
All of these factors combine to make a truly pro-level table that players the world over look forward to competing on.
3 – Fast Assembly & Simplified Leveling
Modern pool table assembly is much easier than older models, and Rasson takes this ease to the next level. From T-shaped slotted pockets that attach without hassle, to lightweight (yet extremely durable) aluminum alloy framing, tournament organizers love Rasson tables for their ability to be moved and set up under the high pressure demands of a tournament schedule.
While many pool tables are almost permanent fixtures, tournament tables need to be moved and assembled (and disassembled/removed) in large tournament locations. Rasson makes this as simple as possible.
4 – Easy Adjustments
For top tournament players, a level, consistent table is a must. Rasson Professional Pool Tables can be leveled at the frame by rotating a screw between the pedestal and the legs. For much, much finer adjustments, the patent pending LevelBox Plus® system provides 22 individual points of slate adjustment for maximum precision. Each of these adjustment locations is easy to access, which allows for tournament staff to fine tune the tables as needed throughout any event.
5 – Long-Lasting Durability
Precision and consistency are important for the tournament player, of course, but from the perspective of billiards association and tournament organizations, durability is also a major factor. All Rasson tables have rails built to be resistant to warping, scratches, moisture, and heat.
The industrial-grade aluminum alloy frame provides even further durability and longevity, and the easy assembly system means less wear and tear on parts, even moving from storage or from event to event.
