Why are so many boards “out of stock?”
After almost 35 years selling carrom boards, we have begun to wind down our business. We sold all our Synco, Precise and Surco boards this past year and have just now sold our last first quality Siscaa board. We found, however, after the last boards were sold, that we have a surplus of stands. So, we placed one last order from Sunny Sports Industries, the manufacturer of the Siscaa brand, for a small consignment of 80 carrom boards of varying qualities. We should be getting them in stock sometime this spring / summer and they will be listed as “back ordered”.
We chose Siscaa over the other brands due to their superior finish, quality control and robust packaging. Siscaa boards are every bit as good as Synco, and superior to Precise, since the business was founded by the long-time factory manager of both Surco and Synco. He worked closely for decades with South Asian and European carrom federations to create a truly world-class, export-quality product with fewer defects and factory seconds as well as superior playing characteristics.
In the meantime, we have a couple of Precise Champion Elegant seconds left, and a variety of other blemished and factory second boards. Call for details. We are still well stocked with stands, coins, strikers, and powder.
We would entertain any reasonable offer for our business, website, contacts and experience. “Carrom” as a search term gets over a quarter million hits a year on the internet, making this a dynamic industry for a motivated entrepreneur. Feel free to call to discuss.
Since 1989, Billiboards has been supplying a wide range of carrom boards and accessories for professionals, enthusiasts and novices. We carry a diverse line of professional carrom boards, coins, strikers, powder, stands and instructional books and videos.
In addition to our Carrom Deals and Carrom Packages, we have our standard carrom board range, focusing primarily on tournament-quality equipment. Purchase a stand with any board and we will make it a package by including powder. All our products are approved by the International Carrom Federation and the US Carrom Association.
Why are our boards more expensive than on some other sites?
First and foremost, we sell only the highest quality boards from the most reputable manufacturers. Our specialty is true professional equipment, not the cheaply made boards you can find in Indian grocery stores or at Walmart. If you are looking for a board in the $100 range, you should probably look there. As always, you get what you pay for.
Secondly, shipping by UPS Ground is included in all our carrom board and stand prices, no matter where you are in the continental United States. Accessory orders will be mailed via USPS. There is no additional cost for shipping and we take great care in ensuring the board is packaged properly and will not arrived damaged.
You may find similar carrom boards on the web that are less costly, some with model names like “Tournament” and “Professional.” But, all Indian boards are not the same and their names may not reflect their quality. We only supply boards made by the top four Indian manufacturers and we specialize in their top-of-the-line range.
The boards made for Billiboards by Synco, Siscaa and Surco feature the same high-quality manufacturing techniques pioneered by Precise Industries, including frames reinforced with formica and super-smooth playing surfaces, making them the boards of choice in ICF and USCA tournaments. In addition, all our boards are waterproof and the finish on both frame and playing surface is guaranteed to be the highest quality.
Most important of all, we inspect every board to ensure that it meets our specifications. We are the only supplier to apply a straight edge to every playing surface to check for flatness, warpage and twist. Any variation beyond normal parameters (1-1.5mm) results in rejection or reclassification as an “irregular” piece to be sold at a discount. As discerning, competitive players ourselves, we are committed to providing only the finest carrom equipment, chosen for superior playing characteristics and attention to detail.
Please note, however, that all our products are hand made in India and are subject to cosmetic and structural flaws, most commonly at the corner joints. As a result, there is no such thing as a “perfect piece.” Cracks, dings, dents, stains, and other irregularities in the finish are not uncommon, especially on the frames and at the corners, but also on the playing surface. None of these will affect the play of the game and are purely cosmetic. Boards with more substantial flaws are sold with a “second-quality” or “blemished” discount. Please call or email with any questions.
You can order directly from this website if you wish, however, you may prefer to talk to someone in person before you buy. If so, just contact us and someone will get back to you.
