Two features of this wonderful pool table that make it stand out are its perfectly honed 3 piece slate, and soft felt, covered on a surface, the thickness of which isn’t more than an inch.

Furthermore, it contains metal accents, black matte tops rail, pedestal legs in box-style, drop pockets, and chrome-plated levelers. Moreover, this table comes with a full set of pool accessories.

Let’s discuss the specs in detail.

High-Quality Slate Surface

A majority of the substandard pool tables available in the market are made of wood. They are light, cheap and easy to move from place to place. However, wood is not the surface that provides ball control during a game of pool.

Furthermore, wood reacts badly to weather changes, expands when it is warm, vice versa. Slate, on the other hand, is a stable material that makes your game more enjoyable.

The Galaxy 8 foot pool table by Harvil consists of 3 layers of slate, which provide immense stability and ball control. As important as the material of the table is the felt on which the game is played.

The felt used on this pool table is made up of more than 70% wool and 25% of it is made of nylon blend fabric. This fabric combination sustains faster shots and rough play, with great ease.

Sometimes, people tend to spill food and drinks on their pool table felt, which leaves nasty stains, on an otherwise beautiful pool felt.

The felt used on the Harvil Galaxy 8 foot pool table doesn’t develop stains, for it has been prewashed in stain-resistant chemicals before it is applied to the table. With this table in your game room, you don’t need to worry about unsightly stains blemishing the look of your pool table felt.

Most pool table manufacturers out there are not that creative with the colors of felt applied to pool tables. As a result, you are left with the old school green pool felt, which looks boring and bland.

Luckily, this isn’t the case with Harvil. The Harvil Galaxy pool table felt comes with 4 different color variations, i.e. blue, green, grey, red and camel which you can see in the picture above. As a result, you can be as creative and funky as you want to be with your pool felt.

The Innovative Design

For a while now, pool table manufacturers are transforming the ways pool tables were built in the early days. The Harvil Galaxy 8 foot pool table is the perfect manifestation of what a futuristic pool table looks like.

This elegantly designed pool table has a sleek and elegant look, which makes it the perfect pool table for residential as well as commercial settings.

The cabinet-grade wood used in the fabulous table is combined with an amazing matte laminate, which is black. On top of that are the metal accidents, which add to the looks, as well as the comfort of this pool table.

The fiber wood rails used in this pool table are 6 inches in density, and with k-66 rubber cushions, make playing even more comfortable and convenient.

Unlike most old-fashioned pool tables, this pool table comes with drop pockets, which lead the balls into a storage compartment. One can easily retrieve the balls after a game is over.

A common issue with pool tables is that of foundation stability. However, with this fascinating table from Harvil, stability is something you mustn’t worry about.

The box-style pedestal legs provide this table with unparalleled strength and posture, thus allowing you to play your natural game without worrying about exerting extra pressure.
