This review is from: Viper Portable Table Tennis Top (Sports) I really want to like this product. It is decent size, not annoyingly tiny. In fact, it is 2/3 the size of a full-size table. It also perfectly fit on top of our dining table (7′ x 3.5′). The playing surface is good enough for the ball to bounce reasonably well. It even folds up and is light enough to be carried on outings and events.BUT, the grind is, the table top folds in 2 places. This is NOT mentioned anywhere in the description, and is not apparent in the pictures either. I assumed it folded in one place, right under where the net would mount. Probably should have researched more, but didn’t occur to me at that time.Anyway, the 2 folds end up being on the 2 halves on either side of the net. They are about 1.16 foot from the net. The fold has seams that do protrude out a little – just a wee bit, but enough to affect ball bounce. The table top has metal hinges at the ends of the folds. the hinges affect bounce too. The table top corners have a triangular pastic cap that fell off immediately. It didn’t affect play, but just wanted to mention how flimsy it is.Overall, I could have probably played a mid-distance game on this table top, but mind you, this is a 2/3 size anyway, so you cannot really adjust and improvise that much. It is more suited to a short game, and that does get affected badly by the way it folds in 2 places.The paddles that come with it are a joke, but you could make it a fun game out of them if you like. The net is nothing to speak about, it mounts easily, but is not taut enough. It is also shorter than the regular net.Unfortunately, I had to return it to Amazon. Hopefully, the manufacturer will take note of the feedback and make some amends to what could be potentially be a really good product. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (4) Reply 75 of 78 people found the following review helpful Folds do NOT interfere – GREAT Table for $99, June 19, 2013 By C. Brandon (Sanford, FL US) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Viper Portable Table Tennis Top (Sports) If you have ever played ping pong professionally, read no more – I’m just trying to have fun with my kids. I was a little skeptical about getting this table after reading the main review, but my 10 year old son really loves ping pong. After carefully considering spending $200 to $400 on another table (NONE of which had more than a 4 star average), I bought this one. It is SUPER! It comes with paddles and balls, so we were good to go out of the box. If the folds interfere with your game, you are a better player than I am! We have played every day since his birthday party, and I can’t recall one bounce that was was wrong. As long as the table is flat, the seams are flat, too. As far as the “other” review goes, I’m not sure what he expects from a $99 ping pong table. (He is probably too good for this table – his reviews include a $26 net and a $15 paddle case – definitely out of my league!). Flimsy hinges and plastic, sure, and the net does sag a tiny bit, but it works if you aren’t playing a world class game. I think this is a great starter table to see if you really love ping pong. Money well spent for a very happy birthday! NOTE: The table you play upon is going to make a big difference. This table top set is 42″ x 84″ and we just happened to have a table that size. If you don’t, that could possibly create the “folding seam” issue. Again, I have had NO problems. It also has checkers and backgammon on the flip side, which to my knowledge is NOT AVAILABLE on any other ping pong table! 8^) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 25 of 27 people found the following review helpful Nice mini ping pong table top, May 27, 2008 By T “surfer” (New York) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Viper Portable Table Tennis Top (Sports) I’ve had this for a month now. My nine year old loves it. He has gotten quite good and has asked for a full-sized tennis table. It’s great if you have limited space. But your family may out grow it pretty fast depending on the age of your kids. I figure this will be good for my son until he is ten or eleven. 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.
