Postby SnookerTriangle.com

A new professional tournament snooker triangle was used for the opening match at the Crucible of the World Snooker Championsion 2013

The triangle was developed over a period of seven months and is the result of many late nights and fanatical research.

The Snooker Island members are invited to post here on Snooker Island, like on Facebook and tweet on Twitter their feeling about the snooker triangle.

Well.. what can I say.. I do appreciate your effort or everyone else who made it, and the triangle looks a very good design, but really it's just a triangle.. snooker fans won't pay attention to it, it only serves up to rack the balls for the next frame, not much else. Does it have any new functions or does it make it easier to rack the balls up? and even if it does.. I mean.. it wasn't that hard a job with the old one, so can't really say much else.

Since the 1980s which is when the triangle (Mccolgan triangle) was created, snooker equipment has evolved and changed. You now have one, two and three quarter cues, numerous extentions, tips etc. However, the snooker triangle has not really changed since then.

The Bermunda tournament snooker triangle was designed from scratch in order to produce a 21st century professional snooker triangle.

Firstly it had to work, it had to be accurate. It also had to incorporate features that many would not notice i.e. weight distribution, impact on the baize etc.

Consideration was made for the audience, aesthetics and ergonomics. There are also references to the maximum break in snooker in the design too. Pretty much all aspects of the modern game were investigated in order end up with a snooker triangle that addressed needs of tournament snooker.

There is a removable spotting mirror, there are precision bearings and bespoke wheels. All the result of the research data collected.
