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 1/2 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.
