But the ability to perform all complex shots is not something that an average customer needs. People prefer sturdy, durable models. Carlyle nails this aspect.
It is still a great table to play on for advanced players: hollow rods, counterbalanced men, adjustable leg levelers, very nice feeling wooden handles. Really, it would be unfair of me to complain.
To summarize the review: Carlyle’s main competitor among my picks Carmelli Millennium looks good and plays great. Hovewer, American Herritage Carlyle undisputably wins me over with elegant design and a whole bunch of awesome features as a bonus. If you can afford the price, it will make your living room a better place.
