FAT CAT FOOSBALL TABLE REVIEWS

Fat Cat Madrid Foosball Table

Fat Cat - madrid

Fat Cat Madrid table cabinet is actually made with a traditional block-style design with black and silver colors. The cabinet thickness plays the role in the durability of the Fat Cat foosball table. The higher quality of tables is generally 1″ thick, but very durable cabinets are actually 1.5″. But, at over 119 pounds this does have the good weight that helps with the durability. The plus is 3/8″ thick playfield. Like cabinet, the thicker playfield means that it is very durable. Some of the tables in the price range actually have 3/16″  thick field, thus this one will not be very susceptible to warping.

Like mentioned, Madrid has the good weight so it can be very stable during the gameplay. It may move some in case adult players are very aggressive with that, but overall it is very sturdy for this price. Anyone who has played on the Fat Cat foosball table knows the importance of the level field. This prevents dead spots as well as contributes to the quality of the play. Leg levelers can also help create the level surface if the table is on the uneven floor. Hollow steel rods are tournament sized which allows gameplay to get faster as well as very appealing for the skilled players

PROS

  • Sturdy
  • Attractive
  • Fast gameplay
  • Affordable
  • Level playfield

CONS

  • Durability concerns for long term
  • Assembly issues

Fat Cat Tirade MMXI Foosball Table

Fat Cat - MMXITable weighs above 130 pounds and has got 4-1/2″ of legs, thus it is made very solid. Hollow steel rods also are built to last. There’re a few plastic pieces that can break, like score pieces. So, what makes the gameplay fun? For the starters, its stability with Fat Cat foosball table. The table that moves very easily will give the advantage over other at the given time. So, any table above 120 pounds has sufficient weight to hold very steady even while the players are very aggressive. Leg levelers create the level surface, no matter whether the floor is ever even or not. It matters a lot since the uneven surface can result in the dead spots as well as perhaps the competitive benefit for a side. The hollow and steel rods are the best quality which will provide you faster play. It is what you would want if you are one of the experienced players.

The unique feature is a wave design on every end that continuously keeps the ball in play. The downside is that the ball can roll right off the table if you hit it hard enough. But, you may replace this with the blocking plates, in case you do not want the feature. Whereas is not the huge deal, the ball will get retrieved on every side for the convenience. This does not come with the counterbalanced players that some mid tables have. The counterbalanced players stay of horizontal to surface till they are been moved. The advantage of the feature is to have the space to shoot a ball, thus your guys do not block it.

PROS

  • Sturdiness
  • Affordable
  • Levelers
  • Aesthetics
  • Continuous play feature
  • Hollow steel rods

CONS

Fat Cat Queen Victoria Foosball Table

Fat Cat Queen Victoria Foosball TableFat Cat table from Queen series looks like an antique piece of furniture and all that because of the legs. It kind of looks like a foosball table made in French design from solid oak so it is very sturdy. The entire foosball table is made from wood, including wooden handles. Even though legs don’t look like they can be adjusted, there are leg levelers in this foosball table. It is a great quality piece of furniture as you can see by the solid steel rods and counterbalanced men. The only downside I see is the end ball return, but that is more of a personal opinion than a technical downside for Queen Victoria foosball table. So, if you are looking for a stylish foosball table that looks like a piece of furniture, Queen Victoria should be one of your choices.

PROS

  • Counterbalanced men
  • Very sturdy
  • Great design
  • Made of solid oak wood

CONS

Fat Cat Queen Anne Foosball Table

Fat Cat Queen AnneQueen Anne is made with the same technical characteristic as Fat Cat foosball table above – Queen Victoria. It looks like an antique piece of furniture so it will fit perfectly in your living room next to the piano and it works perfectly also. Just like Queen Victoria, this foosball table is made from solid oak wood which makes it highly durable and stable. Since people in GLT Products know how important it is to have good quality players, they made Queen Anne with counterbalanced players as well. You can control them with high-stress resistant rods which will provide you great gaming experience. Just like with Queen Victoria, the only downside I can tell at the moment is an end ball return option.

PROS

  • Counterbalanced men
  • Very sturdy
  • High-stress resistant rods
  • Made of solid oak wood

CONS

  • End ball return

Fat Cat Contempo Foosball Table

Fat Cat Contempo Foosball TableContempo is a Fat Cat foosball table which is somewhere in between the Queen series and other Fat Cat designs. It looks elegant and it is made from wood but it doesn’t have that antique design Queen series has. The entire table is made from Maple and the cabinet is 3/4 inch thick. The downside of this table is the end side ball return and the fact that it doesn’t have leg levelers. I like the fact that you can choose 1-man goalie system or 3-man goalie system for your foosball table. The solid steel rod with wooden handles will allow you to control the players with ease, but it would be even easier if the rods are hollow.

PROS

  • Made from Maple wood
  • Wooden handles
  • 1-man or 3-man goalie system

CONS

  • End ball return
  • Solid steel rods

Fat Cat Shaker Foosball Table

Shaker fat cat foosball tableAnother wooden Fat Cat foosball table is the Shaker. It is not the best foosball table made by Fat Cat. The cabinet and legs are made from Oak, just like the foosball handles. When it comes to stability and durability, it is not the best model, but it is good for hobby players. There are some features the table should have like leg levelers or the side ball return. I like the fact that it has counterbalanced men and wooden handles, just like the 3-man goalie system. The players on the field are divided into Red and Blue and that is about it when it comes to color on the table. The design is extremely simple, maybe even too simple.

PROS

  • Solid Oak material
  • Counterbalanced men
  • Wooden handles

CONS

  • End ball return
  • No leg levelers

Fat Cat Cyclone Foosball Table

Cyclone fat cat foosball tableThis foosball table is the biggest and sturdiest foosball table made by Fat Cat. The entire table is made from Maple laminate with light colored exterior. I love the fact that it has some black details on it. The Fact Cat foosball table has curved edges so the ball stays in the field all the time – no more dead balls. Between the legs are two bars which provide extra stability during gameplay. Hollow steel rods with wooden handles control the game with ease. Players on the field are in silver and black which fits great with the rest of the table design. other things I like with this table are two side ball returns and adjustable leg levelers on each leg.

PROS

  • Leg levelers
  • Hollow steel rods
  • Side ball return
  • Curved field edges

CONS

  • Quality

Fat Cat Manchester Foosball Table

Fat Cat Manchester Foosball TableManchester is a Fat Cat foosball table that doesn’t look like other Fat Cat models. It has the sleek design and it is made of MDF and it is a combination of brown (for the cabinet) and black (for the legs). The table itself doesn’t look so sturdy so I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who wants to play hard and competitive foosball. It is not their best foosball table, it is more like a hobby players or teens model. When you look at the field you can see that players are divided into White and Blue team and that they are controlled by the hollow rods and plastic handles. A plastic handle would never be my first choice because it can be slippery during game. But, on the bright side, it does have leg levelers so you can play it wherever you want. To me, this table looks more like a teens table than the adult table.

PROS

  • Sleek design
  • Leg levelers
  • Hollow rods

CONS

  • Plastic handles
  • Quality
  • End ball return

Fat Cat Rebel Foosball Table

Fat Cat Rebel Foosball TableWhen you read Rebel I assume you expected some bad-ass foosball table but this is not it. It looks elegant, anything like the rebels we know. But, that doesn’t mean it can’t provide you best foosball game right? The cabinet is made with quality materials, picked to last. The entire table is made in gray, black combination with the little rebel writing in one corner. I like the fact that it has a white details on the edge of the panels. You can notice the leg levelers on the legs of the table. Players are divided into two teams the Gray and the Black and they are controlled by quality steel rods with plastic handles. One thing I don’t like about the table is the end ball return.

PROS

  • Great design
  • Steel rods
  • Leg levelers

CONS

  • End ball return

Fat Cat Revelocity Foosball Table

Fat Cat Revelocity Foosball TableRevelocity is a Fat Cat foosball table I assumed it was for kids. The design doesn’t suit the standard sized table at all. It is bright with two balls and a the Revelocity logo in the middle and to me it looks extremely childish. The cabinet itself is made from 1/4 inch thick wooden walls, without leg levelers. The robotic players are divided into two teams, the Reds and the Yellows and they are controlled by the steel rods. The table has end ball return even though a side ball return is much better. I am not too happy with this foosball table made by Fat Cat because they have better quality and better-looking tables in their repertoire.

PROS

  • Steel rods
  • 1/4 inch thick cabinet
  • Robotic players

CONS

  • No leg levelers
  • Quality
  • End ball return
