Most shuffleboard tables on the market make it hard for people to enjoy the game.
Usually, if you’re getting a shuffleboard table on a budget, you have to deal with uneven surfaces, poor craftsmanship, and a lack of climatic adjusters. But with this model, you get just about everything you need for a fun game of shuffleboard. Since it comes with all the accessories to start playing a game and even has climatic adjusters, if you treat it right, then this board can serve you for a long time coming!
This is one of the areas where this shuffleboard table truly shined. For starters, let’s look at the playing surface. This is a real wooden surface that is thick with a polyurethane coating for the extra slide when you push the pucks across the table. Customers have reported that pushing the pucks across this table feels like doing it on a real shuffleboard court, which adds a touch of realism to the game.
On top of that, if you enjoy playing shuffleboard outdoors while getting some sunshine, then this table is great for you. Since it has climatic adjusters, it is great in just about any setting. With that said, to really use this table in different climates, you need to know how to use climatic adjusters, which can be hard for beginners.
Additionally, this table comes with pucks and an abacus scorer which allows you and your friends to start playing the game the second it arrives at your doorstep!
The playing surface of this table is made of a ⅓’’ thick piece of hardwood. This is a very durable material and when paired with the single-piece hardwood for the cradle, this is really a model designed to last you a fair amount of time.
However, keep in mind that a lot of the components of this model are glued together. While this makes for a more convenient and cost-effective construction, glue isn’t the most reliable adhesive, especially in varied climatic conditions. So, because there are a lot of glued together components, you can expect some cracks to arise from time to time.
Ease of use
This is a one-piece table, so you don’t need that much assembly to start playing. All you have to do is make sure the surface is level, take out the pucks, and start playing. So, compared to other tables that have confusing assembly processes, this table is fairly simple.
However, keep in mind that this is a pretty heavy table. So, if you plan to move this around, you may have to call a couple of friends to get the job done. It can be especially hard to move this table up and downstairs, so make sure that you measure all the areas the table will pass through before ordering it.
Value for money
This is another area where this table excels. Again, for a table of this quality, many people can expect to pay at least $1,500 or more, depending on the brand and quality. However, this model gives you all the functionality that you get with the premium models on the market and is available for under $1,000, making it a top pick for anyone trying to build a game room on a budget.
At the end of the day, this was probably our favorite table on the market. While it does have some durability issues, it provides an even playing surface and sturdy construction, which is all you need to play a fun game of shuffleboard. On top of that, this is a 9-foot table, so it won’t take up as much space on a full-size model while not sacrificing any of the fun.
