World's Leading Aluminum Pool Products Manufactured By Tag Team
Delta-13 was born from Tag Team Manufacturing, in March of 2007 with the initial idea of a product to keep your cue chalk from marking up home walls and shortly after with a billiard ball rack.
By having our Delta-13 inventors play pool, we were in search of designing billiard products to not only improve the level of play, but to protect our table fabric, cues, and walls. After extensive market research, we learned that precision and long-lasting billiard accessories were non-existent. We know the properties of aluminum very well and selected it for our billiard accessories because of its durability, precision integrity, and aesthetic qualities. Eighty-five percent of the material used to make the Delta-13 accessories is 6061 aluminum. We also know the quality of U.S.A. made and wanted to make sure we kept the production in house at Tag Team.
The name, Delta-13 came about because “DELTA” is the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet which resembles a triangle and “13” is for Aluminum’s atomic number on the Periodic Table of Elements.
Delta-13 - Product Line
The racks are made of 6061 extruded aluminum and machined on a $300,000 horizontal mill. Each rail and corner is cut from solid aluminum. Each piece is then inspected for sharp edges and quality machining prior to anodizing. The anodize process essentially embeds the color molecules into the aluminum molecules in an electricity charged bath. The anodize process prevents the aluminum from tarnishing over time. The corners are clear anodized which give them a silver-like finish. Post anodize, each piece is inspected for a quality finish.
The aerospace precision design creates a powerful break preferred by professionals. Delta-13 has sponsored over 50 professional tournaments and tours along with several amateur leagues. In 2011, there were 26 televised ESPN tournaments where the Delta-13 was the official rack and over 35 in 2012. Delta-13 was the official rack for the Billiards International ESPN through 2014 and some of these tournaments are still aired today. Delta-13 was the official rack of the Women’s Pro Billiard Tour since 2010 and that support continued through 2013. Delta-13 was also one of the biggest sponsors of the US 9-Ball Champions from 2008-2012.
