CRAFTSMANSHIP

WSC 2017 Riley Tournament Table

 

WOOD TYPE

Manufactured from solid mahogany and selective solid woods throughout. Our craftsmen personally select every piece of timber before being passed to our workshop for use in the manufacture of the table. Each piece is kiln dried and tested for moisture content to ensure the stability of the wood for the lifetime of the table.

This table was used for all professional snooker tournaments (ex China) between 1992-2009.

 

SLATE

Riley use the finest Italian laser cut, precision engineered, 4.5 cm thick slate. We are one of only a few, if not the only manufacturer, to use this prestigious quality slate. No other slate meets these exacting standards.

Five pieces of slate cut from one slab to ensure consistency when the slates are laid down. No filler, no joints, no lips. Just one seamless slate play field.

Our table frames are designed with the unique Riley adjustable slate support system. These ensure that the slate is properly balanced to the frame and that the weight of the table is evenly distributed – this is key to keeping the table level over time.

Tournament cut slate means what is says: the slate and each pocket opening is cut very carefully by hand to ensure the frieze and slate fit together like a hand in a glove. There are only a few craftsmen around the World capable of constructing the processed finish, which is done completely by hand, knowhow and most importantly with unparalleled expertise.

CUSHIONS

Northern Rubber

Made in England

The rubbers used on the cushion and friezes (steels) are like caviar and champagne; they must go together to get the full benefit and enhancement to the playing experience.

Northern rubber is the world’s best, no question, and is standard on all Aristocrat tables, there is simply no way to improve upon this. The only difference on the Limited Edition table is that each piece is individually hand selected and tested before applying to the table to ensure optimum response befitting of such a table – and more importantly to meet Ronnie O’Sullivan’s exacting standards.

The pocket opening on these tables has been replicated to meet that of the pocket opening that Ronnie O’Sullivan actually insists upon. The playing experience being an exact replica of Ronnie’s preferred conditions. Please note the pocket openings can be adjusted at the time of installation to suit specific requirements. We acknowledge Ronnie’s preferences and practice regimes, along with table set up, may not be acceptable to other players, which would impact on overall enjoyment.

STEELS

Only the finest English made steels are used to build the cushion frieze. This ensures a precision response from each cushion. Riley use a manufacturing technique in the cushions that has been the same for almost 100 years, often overlooked and dismissed as unimportant by competing brands. The Riley Aristocrat steel cushion is the finest in the world.

Even to this day most professional players would choose Riley tables over and above any other.

POCKETS

The pockets are made using English cow hide leather to ensure maximum durability while at the same time providing a very fine quality leather that is soft to the touch yet does not crack under use. This hide is individually hand pressed piece by piece to ensure perfection is achieved in each of the pocket sections.

CLOTH

West of England 6811 Tournament Gold 30Oz.

The finest cloth produced with the most glorious nap; bristly to the touch one way and as smooth as silk the other way.

Snooker tables are traditional and napped cloth is essential. The nap when used at the highest level will assist the most talented players as the nap when used properly will allow the ball when played at the correct pace to curve very slightly to aid potting the ball.

Whilst 6811 is the only viable cloth for a table of this stature, there is a reason it is the cloth used for all professional events around the World. 

Other cloth colours available on request.
