Product Review: Fat Cat Tucson MMXI Billiard Table
Price Range: $550 – $600
Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a fun, affordable arcade-style billiard table with accessories thrown in.
- The Fat Cat Tucson has a sleek arcade style design which will match up well in any modern games room. The alluring arcade style legs feature four leg levellers so you can attain a flat playing surface even if your floor isn’t fully flat.
- The eye-catching blue polyester cloth playing surface keeps in line with the modern look of this billiard table. While the cloth isn’t professional-grade, it holds up well to everyday play.
- This table has an 18 mm MDF playing surface. Although this fibre board surface doesn’t offer the same durability and play accuracy as a slate bed table, it helps make the table more economical and also lighter so it is easier to move.
- Rubber bumpers are included which provide a good bounce plus quick and accurate rebounds so your games are fluid and enjoyable.
- The ball return system is a cool feature which returns the balls to one end of the table after they’re potted so you don’t have the inconvenience of taking the balls out of each individual pocket at the end of a game.
- An accessory set is included which consists of two 57″ cues, one set of 2-1/4″ billiard balls, resin triangle and chalk.
- Some assembly is required to put the table together. However, this is common for billiard tables in this price range so not necessarily a con. Most customers found it took between 1-2 hours to assemble.
- The MDF playing surface means this table could warp over time. However, as long as you don’t keep it in humid environments it should last for a good number of years.
