Only one profile of cushion will give the correct nose height on a table. By installing the wrong profile, cushions will give an incorrect nose height/contact point and will impact the playability of your table.
Most non-Brunswick tables will take a K66 profile that measures 1 1/8” across the top of the cushion and 1 3/16” high at the back (glue) side.
K55 cushions measure 1 ¼” across the top and 1 5/16” high at the back (glue) side. Keep in mind if you have an older Brunswick (prior to 1975), be sure to measure the back side of the cushion at the glue side and confirm 1 5/16” before ordering. Older K55 cushions had a 1 5/16” back side dimension but a 1 1/8” top side measurement (same as K66).
If your table is an older 7- or 8-foot Brunswick table with Brunswick Centennial or Contender cushions (non-triangular cushions shaped like a “number 7”), then you need to order Brunswick Contender cushions. We also sell our Classic Billiards U56 profile cushion as a great affordable alternative.
If you are not getting an existing nose height for your old cushion in the range listed above, call us at (410) 256-8388, and we will help you determine the correct profile needed.
If you are getting a cushion dimension different than the K66, K55, and U56 profiles listed above, with your contact point being correct at 1 3/8”- 1 7/16” above the playfield, you may have a smaller or uncommon profile. Feel free to call (410) 256-8388, and we can try to match up to a correct, current cushion profile.
