In the archives, if I got it right , Ron mentions that when the
difference between the mouth size and throat size of a pocket is too
big , there is a tendancy for the OB to hang in the pockets mouth if a
ball hits the pocket facing. One example is a cut shot with OB on the
rail. Ive played on tables with just about the same corner mouth size
but with varying throat size and have see the difference he speaks of.

Im planning to buy a table . For a corner pocket mouth size  of 5
inches what throut size  would you suggest ? For a side pocket mouth
size of  5 1/2 inches what throat size would you suggest ?

Also for the pocket mouth size of corner and side pocket I described
above, what do you  suggest for the  vertical pocket angle  on the
*** cushion? BCA says 11 to 13 degree while PBA says 11 to 13 for
maximum mouth size & 15 to 16 degreee for minimum mouth size ?  For 5
and 5/12 mouth I am thinking of 12 degrees
