Approved Slate Frame
In accordance with BCA tournament rules, a 3/4-inch wood frame is bonded directly to the slate. This bonded wood is called a slate frame.

Billiard Quality Slate
Brazil, China, Italy, Korea, Spain, The United States, and Wales all produce billiard quality slate. Although, slate may look different from one country to another, in terms of billiard performance, there is no distinct difference in the quality of slate quarried in any of these countries. The key characteristic by which slate quality is measured is the precision by which the slate surface has been machined. Slate is the most expensive and perhaps the most crucial component of a well-made pool table. We are proud to provide BCA approved, precision-machined, and oversized slate on all our tables. Our slate is quarried in Brazil.
