Diamond pyramid

Post by stonejr1211 » Sat Jan 16, 2016 12:39 pm

My diamond pyramid has faded from UV light and got real hard, should I replace it or is it something can be done to bring it back to life?

Personally, I wouldn't do a thing to it. The rubber on the tables in the casino will get hard over time as well. I have some PaulSon rail rubber out in the garage that's over fifty years old. Wouldn't hesitate to put it on a table.

Anyone know where I can buy the super bouncy backwall pyramid?

The bouncy stuff I'm thinking about doesnt have the lip running along the bottom, it has about 1 inch of flat, then the pyramids start. Noone that I've seen seems to sell it, but its on a lot of tables.

WHos that on your avatar, Snake?

I found the prognostications about dice throws confusing when I started. Some say dice have to arrive down a 45 degree angle which means you have to at least throw the height of the rails from SR or SL. Some loft the dice higher. I go for a throw just below the rails, soft as a I can with a landing spot around 8 to 10 inches before the diamonds. For some reason I need a slight roll in to a stop and they have to hit the bottom of the diamond rubber. If I have them drop in front of the diamonds..I will invariably get a 7 out.

That's top rail rubber you posted a link to, not the diamond pyramid rubber. The top rail installs at the top of the table - in front of the rail - and has a bit of overlap over the top (flat) portion of the diamond rail.

ArmorAll may help bring it back to life or at least make the fading look better. I made the mistake of originally putting my table where the afternoon sun through the french doors hit one end so it is much more faded on one end than the other end.

I have never tried it so you may want to try a small test spot in the beginning.

I am in agreement with Heavy Now you have a table with two different types of DPs, great for practice.
Your craps plan? The dice gods laughed.

Wow...it was forums and posts like those that kept me from making a more serious plunge into DI. I'm glad I found this place and everyone here.
