If your pool table was from the 1970s or 1980s, they typically would have been nailed on. Here, we recommend upgrading them to modern screw-in cushions. They allow better ball contact with the cushion rail, thereby providing more consistent bounce.
Some frequently asked questions from our customers:
Why is a pool table cushion replacement so essential?
Pool table cushions contain rubber, and rubber ages with time. Rubber needs to flex to maintain its natural spring and pool balls can bounce off the rails smoothly again. Plus, the bounce mutes any sound of impact when the balls hit the rail.
Yes! It makes sense to replace the cloth if the rubber inside the cushion is being replaced. Else, it leaves a patchy looking finish on the cloth.
