When excellence meets design
René Gabriels, one of the great balk-line players of his time, founded Gabriels Biljarts in 1932. He started manufacturing carom tables in a small factory in the middle of the city of Antwerp, Belgium and quickly gained a reputation as the manufacturer of high-end carom tables and exported his products worldwide.
In 1991 Gabriels Billiards opened up a state-of-the-art factory in Kapellen, Belgium and in 2004 Loontjens Biljarts acquired the brand. This new ownership allowed Gabriels Biljarts to grow substantially.
Rafale is the latest Gabriels carom table and was introduced in 2017 at the World Championship 3-cushion in Bolivia. The world record team average 3-cushion was sharpened in 2018 on the Gabriels Rafale.
