I purchased Simonis from the Dufferin Game Room Store on SW Marine Drive (in
Vancouver) about 8 years ago. They are in the phone book and have an 800
number if you are long distance.

I've covered my own table with Hainsworth 90/10 worsted in the past and it
played very similarly to Simonis 860, but my recommendation is to use
Granito Basalt made by Gorina. Send SSCS (John Kirchel) an email (he
announced lately that he is distributing Granito cloth and is a regular
poster to this group) or give Jon Spiegel a call at 800 465 4900. I've
purchased from both Jon, and Deno before him at that number.
>What would be a good price just for the cloth?
Eight years ago, I paid $275CA for the Simonis. I think about $200CA before
shipping or taxes or brokerage for the Granito. My experience is that you
can get dinged heavily (brokerage) by using a private courier.
