Sam | Atlantic Champion | Vintage Oak | Luxury Slate Pool Table | 6ft & 7ft Sizes
Stunningly contemporary design allied with the rugged durability of solid ply and aluminium extrusions make the Atlantic the 21st century choice for English pool. The aluminium extruded top rails hug the cushions along their entire length for maximum ball response and consistency. Available in various high quality unique finishes (see various listings for all table finishes) the Atlantic delivers ProActive cushion response on a true championship table.
If you take your pool seriously, play on a serious table, play on a SAM Atlantic.
Atlantic tables have been used at the Annual BAPTO Pool finals for more than 15 years. The UK’s longest running, largest and most prestigious, pub pool championships.English pool was conceived as a bar game that borrowed the skill and tactics from the snooker that British players were familiar with, played on a smaller table suitable for British pubs and bars. Innovative at the time, red & yellow balls are now synonymous with pool in the UK and the game has developed into a serious sport in its own right with a nationwide network of leagues and tournaments played to professional standards.
The top frame is secured by bolts to the slate for the most consistent and accurate play field and cushion response.
Plywood construction gives the SAM Atlantic table great strength and durability, without excess weight. Less susceptible to damp conditions, easier to repair when damaged and harder wearing at joints and fixings than the more commonly used MDF.
All top frame components are bolted metal to metal reducing movement and wear, and the frame fits more accurately to the cabinet.
The real genius of the ProActive system is in the cushion fit.
- Cushions are profiled to match the aluminium top and secured by a full length plate.
- Standard 10mm bolts fit snugly into the extrusion and give consistent cushion response along the whole length. The simple fitting routine needs no special tools.
- The cushion can never be fitted at the wrong height dispensing with the need for metal cushion strips that are unsightly and disturb the players’ bridging action.
- The top frame is clamped to the slate creating a contiguous playing surface that can be levelled as one unit for super accuracy.
- Top players have likened the ball response achieved to that of a steel block snooker table.
ProActive cushions provide the most accurate and consistent cushion response ever achieved.
Slate bed construction - There is no substitute for slate when it comes to a level playing field. A natural material hewn from the great mountain ranges of the world, diamond honed to perfection by SAM, stored and prepared in just the right environment to ensure perfect level when installed.
Easy Precise Level - SAM tables are a piece of cake to level with just a 13mm open ended spanner. No lifting of the table required at all so no help required and greater accuracy can be achieved with your spirit level.
Cushioned ball return - Champion table feature carpeted internal ball runs to reduce the noise as ball return to the baulk end exit box.
