Balzer 7 Air Hockey
Jonathan from Hubert, NC
Not great. Not bad. Easy to assemble and functional. Table is slightly bowed such that it is higher in the middle. This causes the puck to get stuck in the middle often bouncing from side to side. I don't think that this was intentional in the manufacturing. My biggest peeve is the laminate side rails. Another review states that the rails are aluminum. Mine certainly are not. It is a silver colored laminate on top of MDF. It holds together well except at the sides of the goals where after only a short amount of play it begins to chip off. This occurred almost immediately with another brand MDF table I bought previously which prompted me to return it for a refund. I up graded to this table but the same problem started occurring after about one week of occasional play. Not wanting to return another table, my solution was to cover the rails at the goal edges with electrical tape to stop the progressive chipping of the laminate. This seems to have worked. I am not sure why the manufacturer does not simply reinforce the goal edges such that the laminate doesn't chip so easily at this obvious weak point. Another draw back, although minor, is that the corners are corners and not rounded off or curved. I think this takes away from the play with the puck hugging the sides more as opposed to being forced back to the middle. All in all, the table is OK, but I think it could be easily and cheaply improved by the manufacturer. Bottom line is my 7 yr old has fun with it and that was the goal. If you want hard core adult play, there is no doubt you have to go over the $1K mark and spring for an aluminum or equivalent table.
Not as sturdy as expected

I thought it would be sturdier as far as the materials for the legs and such, especially for the price I paid.
Great mid-level Table

My only complaint is that the puck flies off pretty easily if it is hit really hard. Fairly easy to put together. I had 2 high school students and a college student put it together for me. Great table!

This table is Very Sturdy, it has good fast play with no noticeable dead spots, not as fast as a commercial table but the closest you'll get without spending $1500 or more. the inside rails are metal which means they wont chip and break apart like most cheaper tables. Overall I like this table alot and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a solid quality table for your home.
