Go Play Outside
Can't bear the thought of another night spent choking on cigarette smoke at your local pool hall? Not enough room in the basement to accommodate the stroke on your sledgehammer break? Then get outside for some fresh air while you practice the masse and perfect your cut shots. The Super Table ($1,591) is a weatherproof pool table with a playing surface made from a polypropylene fabric and with rails molded from neoprene rubber. The surface covers a five-eighths-inch bed of high-density fiber cement that is guaranteed not to warp, buckle or twist. The Super Table is barroom size (3� by 7 feet), and its manufacturer, JPJ International of Sanger, Calif., claims that it provides the same playing conditions as a conventional table. The company also notes that while the Super Table can withstand sun, rain, snow and ice, it makes sense to cover it up to keep it clean. For more information, go to www.outdoorpooltable.com.
