Thank You For Shopping With Nielsen's Billiards. Monday through Friday 9:30 a. And Saturday 9:30 a. New 7' Valley Ridgeback Rail Professional Edition Replacement Rails For Round Corner Valley Tables.
Ridgebackrails Professional Edition are specially designed for players who want a more challenging table that plays like a professional table. Professional Edition Ridgebackrails have a thicker cushion block that is made from specially designed bonded clear poplar. Each cushion block is comprised of multiple layers of wood collated from different parent boards thus having varying grain characteristics. This gives the cushion block additional strength, dimensional stability and mass so that the play and consistency are greatly improved. The pocket openings for the Professional Edition Ridgebackrails are as follows.Corner pockets: 4 1/2" mouth and 4" throat. Side Pockets: 4 3/4" mouth and 4" throat. Please Note - Pocket size may vary due to table and/or model manufacturing tolerances. Please Note - when covering the rails on the Professional Edition rails you will need 6 1/2 wide rail cloths.
If you do not have 6 1/2 wide rail cloth this it will be difficult to get the needed complete wrap around of the cloth. It is possible to complete with standard 6 inch rail cloth, its just a bit tougher!
Your table Must have ROUND Corners in order for these rails to work for your Valley Table. MEASUREMENTS - Please take measurements of your existing rails to assure that the lengths of the rails as well as the bolt holes line up correctly, please note that the pro version rails will be just slightly longer and they will bolt up presuming that your the bolt holes are the same.
Actual Measurements of This Set Shown Below. SIDE RAILS (4 Total) - Measures 36 3/4 inches long. From the CENTER bolt in ANY of the side rails to the bolt on either end of the same rail is 14 3/8 inches.
END RAILS (2 Total) - Measures 37 1/4 inches long. From the CENTER bolt in EITHER of the end rails to the bolt on either end of the same rail is 15 1/8 inches. Each set of Ridgeback rails are made using state of the art equipment that assures the highest quality product from set to set. Their machinery was designed and manufactured to their specifications specifically to make the Ridgeback rails. This means precision and consistency throughout each production run.All components of each Ridgeback rails are the highest quality available, from the adhesives to the cushion facings. Here you can see the two layers of reinforcing cloth that are molded into the cushion facing membrane. This provides extra strength where the balls impact the ends of the rails and prevents the premature splitting of the cushion facing where the cushion and the wooden cushion block meet. Each cushion and cushion facing are precisely fitted to the cushion block and then finish sanded so that your finished recovering has a smooth seamless appearance rather than visible lines that can be seen through the cloth on rails using die cut and/or razor cut finishing processes. Again, attention to detail is what you can expect with Ridgeback rails. Each cushion facing is firmly bonded with adhesive and then reinforced with two heavy duty staples to keep it from sliding during the life of the rail.
Each side pocket cushion facing and cushion block bottom is relief cut so that the rail can be firmly seated on the play surface when the hospital fold side pocket technique is used. Of course, you can cover the rail using the no-fold valley style treatment as well. Each cushion block blank is run through a molding machine with precisely ground knives that assure consistent and correct profiles for each style of table.
The all-important alignment bead on the face is designed into each profile so that the cushions stay bonded at the correct height even after years of play. One important aspect of the alignment bead is that it provides support for the cushion rubber when patrons or guests sit on the table. On the back of the cushion block is the all-important ridge. This feature causes the rail to be firmly seated against the cabinet at the bolt-up points.Several advantages are that the rail plays better because there is less loss of energy during ball impact, the t-nut is less likely to pull through, which in turn prevents premature rail splitting. During the manufacturing process, the ridge is removed at the very end of each rail to allow for the necessary cloth folds and staples used during the covering process. You will be amazed how easily and beautifully Ridgeback rails are to recover! Only the highest quality t-nuts are used. Each t-nut is fitted into a hole that is precisely drilled on an automatic machine that positions the hole in the correct position longitudinally and vertically so that the rails bolt onto the table easily. The hole depth is also machine controlled so that the t-nut provides the most grip and resistance to pull-through possible. The Ridgeback and the t-nut are designed so that the t-nut has a solid bearing point against the cabinet. Each t-nut is flared, creating a guide for the rail bolt as it is being installed. Additionally, the flare prevents the t-nut from spinning or pushing out while the rails are being installed on the table. Most important note of all! - The most amazing thing about this rail is the ridge on the backside that goes end to end.
The traditional valley OEM rail does not have this ridge through the middle making the cavity on the original Valley OEM rails hollow. By Ridgeback adding this ridge through the middle on the back when the rail bolts are installed, this ridge is now flushed up against the table making another point of contact which is right where the rail bolt goes into the rail.
This produces a rail without the traditional thud that is present in the original OEM rails and quiets the table down and makes it play more like a regular table. The rails are quieter than the original OEM rails.Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe, Germany, Japan, Mexico, South America and United Kingdom. Thank you for your interest in Nielsen's Billiards.
