A See-Though Glass Pool Table That's Supposed To Play Like Felt

July 18, 2017


These are several shots of the X1 Everest pool table, a glass pool table built by Elite Innovations that's been treated with a proprietary transparent coating called 'Vitrik' that's supposed to provide ball physics similar to playing on felt. Does it really? I have no clue. And we'll probably never know personally because they're only making five X1 Everests per year (although I believe you can still pick up one of their previous generation G1 glass pool tables for around $25,000). Alternatively, go halvsies with your roommate and buy a regular pool table. It's not like I'm dying to see the pee stains on the carpet underneath the table anyways. "Dog not house trained?" I just party too hard sometimes.

Keep going for a couple more shots, a video of a couple babes playing on a previous generation table, and a FAQ video.






Thanks to Chris C, who agrees the best pool tables aren't tables at all, they're just pools. Cannonball!

    That video of the chicks playing pool is so corny. I'd tell them I'd buy a table if they erased that video. At least get girls who look like they know how to play. I can't imagine the horrific loser who'd look at that video and want to buy a pool table. Maybe some Wall St nerd who worked 16hr a day for 10 years and he wakes up a 34yr old virgin. Yes, I'm clearly angry that this video exists for some strange reason I've yet to discover.

    Imagine all of the fingerprints on it. It would be a mess to keep it clean.

    You have kids don't you? Same here - my first reaction was "but who's gonna clean that thing every day - NOT ME!"

  • Livingtool

    Dude, you really missed the opportunity:
    "...Does it really? I have no CUE."

    I'll let myself out...

    I didn't see any jump shots or masse shots, so I'm still not buying that the coating is just like felt. A reflective and transparent surface like glass also seems like it would be a pain for aiming.

    This seems like it would be a total nightmare to play on. Part of playing pool is being able to judge depth and distance for each shot. Without a solid color for the surface of the table that would present a challenge.

    But just think of the possibilities in fulfilling your German Scheisse porno fantasies!

    I can honestly say I fulfill every scheisse-related fantasy I've ever had just by waking up in the morning.

    Bets on how many weeks before a girl poses on the glass for a selfie and breaks it?

  • GeneralDisorder

    That glass looked like it was about an inch thick. I'm not sure of the exact orientation of those supports but they look to be around 2 feet apart at most.

    If you have a glass shelf that's 10 feet long with two foot supports it should hold around 3600 pounds.

    I'd say this could reasonably hold about half that if we're being safe about it.

    At this point there have never been any 1800 pound women. So... I feel like it's pretty safe.

    Oh, it comes with a "NO FATTIES" sign.
