How to check if pool table cushion rubber should be replaced
When billiard cushion rubber needs to be replaced it has deteriorated to the point where it has lost it’s “bounce” or “action” and should be replaced with the felt.
Checking the rubber before you buy a pool table is a good idea. It is an added cost that could be avoided by purchasing a pool table with good rubber and cloth. In addition, not only do you have to change the rubber, but you have to take care of your pool table refelting as well which doubles the cost of moving the table in most cases.
Checking the cushion rubber
When rubber is bad it is either very hard like a rock or mushy like a sponge. It can feel like crystals also, you will want to depress the rubber with your fingers and feel the consistency all around the table.
Don’t just check one rubber, you should check all of the rubbers and it is also possible that only a part of one cushion has gone bad so be thorough when you check the table or you may miss a pending bad rubber incident.
