Higgins “Kevin” (Goleta California) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Hathaway Maverick Table Tennis and Pool Table, Black/Red/Blue, 7-Feet (Sports) I swear, Amazon buyers see whats doing well at Walmart, then make a phone call.The reviews were accurate regarding easy assembly. four legs (x 4 bolts each), four side pieces x 4 bolts each, add the feet, flip it over and done. that is a big deal as we get older. Nobody wants 4 hour assemblies.I did it alone, 75 minutes(including unpacking and leveling). With a friend, 30 minutes makes sense.I flipped the table over and upright myselt (I worried about the wheels collapsing with the stress but there was no problem. I turned the wheels all the way in – shortest possible – before rotating it upwards). The lifting upright was a little strain (I’m 6′ tall 190 lbs.) but not too bad. Two people is a better idea. Two women of average size could do this.Caution assemblying the 4 legs, I had two correct and had to reverse the other two. There holes look the same, but aren’t, just make sure there are two holes (half way up the leg) on the long side of the table when you place the legs. Only took a minute to correct my oops. Overall this is “very good pool table for a small area especially for kids”. kids need it short to make the shots. 9 foot tables are frustrating to beginners. I had half a garage, 17 feet long x 9 foot width which works. Still need a short cue for some side shots. The two cues they provide are average and usable. They provide all equipment needed for ping pong and pool.It’s playing size is similar to those quarter pay slot 6 foot tables at bars. So playing area is small 6’x3′, outside dimesnions 46″ wide x 84″ long, 31″ high. 250 lbs stated, seems about right. The tennis table top is cheap heavy pressboard, two pieces. which is nice for lifting. Still a bit heavy for each piece. Could use some lifting handles. Might be better to switch to high grade thin plywood.Haven’t really tried it out yet.In leveling it, results were impressive. Easy task with impressive results. I think you’ll be happy with the leveling capability remembering it’s the lowest cost pool table you can buy. Balls roll straight, except a little turn towards the sidewall, but not too bad. Just out of the box maybe it’ll improve a bit with time.Keep the cat off by making a cover (thick painting cloth, or thick plastic-water/pee proof) that hangs over the edge by 8 inches, so far the hangover of the material has stopped the cat from jumping up. Or, use the cardboard cover, cut it up. Might be better or worse. Let it overhang, cat will miss the jump due to the overhange. Only been a few days, so far so kitty proof, dang longhair kitties.Darn good buy for the garage or bedroom. Highly suggest it so far.Paid $575 plus tax free Amazon Prime delivery Aug 15, 2013. Footprints all over the box when it arrived. I opened it up, it was ok.Unpacking suggestion, make sure it’s face down so you don’t have to reverse it to start assembling. Tap the package near the center, put solid size down, hollow side up. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 9 of 9 people found the following review helpful great pool table especially for the money, February 12, 2015 By W “HWW” (CT) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Hathaway Maverick Table Tennis and Pool Table, Black/Red/Blue, 7-Feet (Sports) got this table for the family for xmas, had my strong nephew and friend carry the table top to the basement thru the hatchway (it was a tight fit but just cleared the stair opening) – much more manageable if you unpack the huge box, once we got all the parts down there we had it assembled and set up in about 15 minutes, make sure you have enough people (or two strong guys) to turn the table right side up without rotating it on the legs – the legs may be strong enough to but didn’t want to risk it. my basement floor must be pretty level because the pool surface was perfectly level without any further adjustments. the accessories are ok quality – the balls are pretty good (i’m just a recreational player used to playing bar tables), but the sticks are featherweight wood-look plastic and the triangle is basic. i ordered some pretty nice weighted Viper cues for about $30 and a wood 8 & 9 ball rack – they rack the balls much tighter, also got a box of red chalk (came with blue) so that any residual chalk wouldn’t show up. also bought a moose bridge which i just slipped onto one of the cheap sticks. not including the sticks, the replacement accessories (chalk, dots, racks and bridge were only about $30 here on amazon). as for performance, i am by no means a pro, but i think it’s fantastic for the money, the quality is surprisingly good, so far after a fair amount of use the felt is holding up just fine as i would hope it should. also bought some stick on dots as surface didn’t didn’t have them and it makes it much easier to locate the rack. the ping pong top, although smaller than regulation is pretty good, as long as you take care to put the two halves together – they join in the middle with 3 wood pegs so you need to slide them together, if you were to lift one side up to take apart you’d probably break the pegs. the paddle are pretty cheap but work, we got a nicer set to replace them. the net, which works pretty well, is poorly sewn at the ends where the loops slip onto the vertical posts, but not a problem, we just sewed them back on, you might as well reinforce all four of them because they will come undone pretty soon – but it works great now after fixing. the top is 1/2″ and has nice action and actually is a perfect size for my kids (ages 7 & 10). as for the pool table size, i always thought the room in my basement wasn’t wide enough, so i never thought about getting one, length is fine (22′ x <11′ wide), but in actuality, i can use a full size cue for most shots, i bought a nice weighted 48″ cue for when i’m jammed up on the side rail and it works great, but the 7′ table size works great in that width room and is perfect for the kids. everyone loves the table, we play it all weekend or whenever else we can 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 11 of 12 people found the following review helpful Dads, GET THIS TABLE!!! Its a must have for any family., February 23, 2015 By dewayne – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Hathaway Maverick Table Tennis and Pool Table, Black/Red/Blue, 7-Feet (Sports) I have been playing pool for the last 30 years (started young) and decided to get a table for my house for the kids(9&14) and I. It is a GREAT table to have. The boys and I love this thing. VERY sturdy and easy to put together. The sticks are OK (workable, but I went to wallywold and bought some $10 sticks). The box was very secure and was delivered into my living room. I opened the box and took the contents upstairs by myself (including the table which was pretty easy for a 5’10” 200lbs old guy like myself). Set up was a breeze with only needing an included hex part. Got it leveled and we were playing within the 1/2 hour. The table itself is nice. great “bar” table and easily playable. Ping pong table is in 2 parts and goes on top of the table with ease. HIGHLY recommend getting a ping pong upgrade for better paddles and balls. The included set are fine but for another $10 at wallyworld you’ll be all set. the best part of all this is my boys LOVE this thing and we got to have some quality bonding time that didnt involve a controller and a TV ;-). Dads, GET THIS TABLE!!!! It is the perfect size for a decent sized family room and the hours of fun so far are priceless. Plus, given the price, you wont be upset if it gets damaged over the years. Would recommend getting one of these and then later getting a “better” one. Although, saying this, this table is perfectly fine for many years of enjoyment. Very sturdy and just perfect for my family. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
