It seems that this sport is brain washed to believe that Simonis is the only pool table cloth that worth buying. While Simonis does make a very good cloth, it not the only player in the game. I recently recovered my table with Championship cloth. I had Simonis 860 but they recently had a significant price increase, I used the Tournament edition of Championship cloth. It is from B&D industries. It is 24 oz instead of the Simonis 21 oz. It is very good cloth and plays fast. It just might be better than simonis.
