Carrom is a well-known company which started with the business over 100 years ago. As you can see, they are still standing strong which means they know what they are doing. It is not weird if the company changes its business field through the ages, but Carrom is a company which started as the pool table manufacturer, which they are today. They simply expanded their profession on other game tables as well. On the foosball field, they are more than successful because the Carrom Signature foosball table is considered as one of the best foosball tables on the market.
The Carrom signature foosball table has 1-inch thick cabinet made from good quality MDF which provides durability and stability. The design is actually pretty interesting because you can choose one from 3 different styles; Aegean Fresco, Moroccan, and Burr Oak. Moroccan and Bur Oak are more popular than the Aegean Fresco, which is not surprising because the Aegean Fresco can’t fit in just about any room you have in your home. The moment you have more than 2 colors (black and white doesn’t count) you have to be careful with the table fitting in your room. Besides the color of the cabinet, the foosball table also has black legs and black corners.
The stability is improved with two steel rods between the legs on each end of the table which can guarantee that the table won’t move during the most aggressive match. If you aren’t sure about that, I am sure that the 162 pounds of Carrom Signature foosball table will make you change your mind. Not only you have to fight the sturdy construction, but you have to fight the weight of the table as well. The table may be sturdy but what about the playing surface. You don’t have to worry for that either because the table has leg levelers which will turn any floor into the 100% straight surface.
Since I have already mentioned the playing field, I should continue in the same direction. SO, the playing field is 3/8 inch thick and it has screen printed graphics. If you are buying a foosball table, avoid stickers on the field because they will peel off and ruin your game. Screen printed graphics are the best solution for the colorful playing field. The players on the Carrom Signature foosball table are counterbalanced and for this price, you shouldn’t accept a table without them. Counterbalanced players can make the game better and more intense. Controlling the players is extremely easy because the table has hollow steel rods which are built to last. If you want to play the fast match then the hollow steel rods are the best solution because you can move the players faster, which automatically means a faster game.
You can have the best players and the best rods, but if you have low quality, slippery handles it is like you have nothing. Good thing is that Carrom Signature foosball table has good quality handles which are made from natural wood. Natural wood is not as slippery as the manufactured wood or plastic no matter how sweaty your hands can get. Also, you won’t get cramped because the handles are ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in your hand which is yet another plus.
Carrom Signature foosball table has one interesting feature I haven’t seen in other foosball tables. It is the two types of foosball players – traditional and robotic players. That is a great feature because you can choose the type of players you want to play with. Now, the Carrom Signature foosball table is not the best foosball table on the market and people experienced dead balls in rare occasions. Also, I think that the end ball return is a downside of this table and that the side ball return is a better solution. When you look at the overall construction, features, pros, and cons you can see that the table actually has a perfect money-quality ratio and that it is a great table for hobby and intermediate players.
