The Balmoral takes the most advanced aspects of SAM’s billiards technology, and squeezes it all into a traditionally-styled British-spec pool table. The result is a triumph of modern pool performance in an elegant package that is suitable for the home games room as much as a relaxed bar or venue.
A choice of finish options and cloths make the Balmoral customisable to suit your environment. It’s the perfect choice where traditional styling is desired.
One of SAM Billiards’ best features is its special ProActive cushion system. This sees the cushion fitted directly to profiled surfaces on the cabinet, making a consistently uniform contact patch and avoiding dead spots. This makes your rebounds behave exactly the same, no matter where on the cushion or table you’re playing.
Also providing consistent performance is the one-piece, diamond-honed rock slate bed. This has been accurately flattened and machined to provide a perfectly linear surface - giving you accurate ball roll behaviour across the entire playfield.
The cabinet itself is made from a resilient, thick plywood. This is lighter than hardwood, but much stronger than MDF, making the Balmoral a real toughie! The finishes are applied using real wood veneers, providing a stylish effect. Pinless pocket liners are shaped to prevent bounce-outs.
The legs are made from solid wood and are turned, to create that timeless traditional style. The cabinet body is also available in a coin mech version, which includes a sterling coin mech and a ball drawer (with white ball separator). Ball collection cubbies are found at the ends of the table (one cubby for freeplay tables, two for coin-op).
The Balmoral can be supplied in a range of Standard colours, as well as some Premium finishes at a surcharge. This makes it easy to match the table to your environment. A choice of cloth makes customisation even easier. The Victoria is traditional woollen cloth, designed for players of British pool. Or go for the faster Atlas nylon-based speed cloth, for faster ball speeds and a game more like American pool.
With lots of colour choices in both ranges, there’s plenty of scope to make your Balmoral look just how you want. Browse the cloth and finish combos using the dropdown menus above.
Included with your Balmoral is a large, comprehensive accessory pack. It comes with everything you need to start playing, including cues and balls. Also included are maintenance products that will help you to look after your table, keeping it in good condition.
We also include installation with the Balmoral. This is because the handling and alignment of the slate is a tricky process, best left to the experts. Our install team will leave the table levelled and ready to play - so all you need to worry about is your first break!
