Valley-Dynamo Sedona

RICHLAND HILLS, TX -- New from Valley-Dynamo is the Dynamo Sedona pool table line, which combines upscale styling and the company's celebrated "solid playability." The Sedona and companion Sedona DBA (with banknote acceptance) incorporate new "death to the dead spot" rail configuration and enlarged clean-out door engineered to provide easier access and extra storage space.

According to the manufacturer, the Dynamo Sedona tables were designed to improve still further on the popular Dynamo Pro Plus series through use of an even more advanced electronic controller. A new motherboard offers greater programming flexibility and convenient program copying, enabling additional bonus and happy hour functions. Battery protection and league dues collection and accounting capability work in conjunction with an MEI bill validator (in the Sedona DBA).

Other enhancements include the availability of an 18-ampere battery and new quick charger, situated behind the enlarged clean-out door for fast access. Also new is a "quick metering" function; simply holding the start button down displays the battery voltage without use of a separate test meter. A backup battery on the motherboard maintains the clock settings even if power from the storage battery fails altogether. Thus, a loss of power or the process of changing the battery no longer requires resetting the system clock.

The Dynamo Sedona pairs these improvements with the features that have built Valley Dynamo's popularity over six decades. These include the magnetic Cougar cue ball from Aramith and the time-proven separator that uses no moving parts to return the cue ball, accommodating both magnetic and oversized balls.

Other features include reinforced molded ABS legs with easy-adjustment levelers.Valley Dynamo's "quiet package" reduces the noise made by the ball return system. The hardwood "death to the dead spot" rails are secured to the table with screws, enhancing durability and expediting replacement when needed. The cabinet adheres to Valley-Dynamo's high construction standards. All wear parts are covered with metal or plastic for longer service life.

The new table is clad in an "Amarillo burl" finish. Push-lock pocket fasteners are employed to secure rubber pocket liners, and slate supports are formed of heavy-gauge galvanized steel.

Sedona tables are offered in three sizes. The Sedona 28 measures 88" long x 50" wide; the Sedona 38 is 93" x 53"; and the largest model, the Sedona 48, is 101" x 56". The two smaller versions use 3/4" slate; the slate in the largest model is 7/8" thick. All slate is imported, although Valley-Dynamo pool tables are manufactured in the United States.
