Deciding Which Kettler Outdoor Ping Pong Table Is Right For You
The variety of Kettler Outdoor Ping Pong tables is wide enough that there will be a table to match the player, each coming in both green and blue finish. This brand is known for their mixed aluminum composition-playing surface making these tables some of the strongest and longest lasting in the world.
Of the four tables to choose from, the one that will run the cheapest is the Riga Pro averaging at approximately 569 dollars. Even from the low end you can tell these stands are perfectly engineered to withstand what both players and Mother Nature will throw at them. The most noticeable feature, and one that is part of all these tables, is the dimpled aluminum on the underside of the playing surface.
This treatment of the metal controls against expansion and contraction due to varying weather elements, the last thing a serious player wants or needs is a warped product! The size is 108in x 60in x 30in meaning it is a tournament size and perfect for the serious player needing a spot for training. Speaking of training, the tables from Riga to Magnum all have individual folding sides meaning a single player can practice in playback position. The ability to have folding sides also aids in the storage of the tables.
Next in line in terms of cost is the Kettler Match 5.0 Weatherproof Outdoor Table Tennis Table brand which retails for approximately 892 dollars, the Kettler Match 3.0 brand also will run about this much as these two tables are quite comparable in cost and quality. The Kettler Match 3.0 Outdoor Table Tennis Table and Match 5.0 are where the Kettler line begins to upgrade the chassis giving it a stronger system of support. Both of these are fitted with oval steel tube legs and a center frame structure that is made out of heavy gauge steel tubing. The entirety of this frame is treated to prevent scratches as well as rusting or corrosion.
The top of the line when it comes to Kettler Outdoor is the Kettler Top Star Outdoor Table Tennis Table (X-Large) retailing for upwards of 999 dollars it is quite obvious that the Top Star is only for the most serious enthusiast. However with that price tag comes an extensive list of impressive features ultimately justifying the cost.
As with all of the other stands, the Top Star is 108in x 60in x 30in keeping with tournament regulations and once again the tabletop is constructed of the highest quality 7 or 8 inches aluminum encapsulated wood. This said wood has silk-screened lines so that the playing surface is completely flat rather than an uneven surface created by painted on lines. But once these initial similarities are passed over the Top Star stands far above literally on a superior chassis frame consisting of 2 inches square steel legs and a center support frame made up of heavy gauge steel tubing.
No matter the table that is picked, when dealing with Kettler Outdoor Ping Pong tables you can be certain that you will be obtaining a long lasting, high quality, tournament ready product.
