Hathaway Playoff Foosball Table

Hathaway Playoff

I will start the list with Hathaway foosball table that has more realistic design than any other models. This design includes the wrap over the inside, which makes this look like many spectators came out and watch the big match. The bright colors that are used on players can help you keep an eye on everyone and tell difference between players and ball on a field. Some may love the unique design of this table that has the curved area at each end, which helps you to make fast plays as the ball comes close to the goal. There are larger and open spaces along both sides that can allow you to move with complete ease from one handle to the next. The Hathaway reinforced supports make the table very sturdy. Instead of making use of just one goalie, the Hathaway added 3 goalies on every end. It gives you control and helps you to stop ball much faster than you can with one goalie. Every side gets 9 other players, which they may control with durable metal handles, with textured grips on every end to keep the hands stable on Hathaway foosball table.

Hathaway Primo 56Inch Foosball Table

Hathaway-Primo-Soccer-Table

The MDF is the mixed bag; however, it is what’s commonly used on the foosball tables. The durability of this depends on the thickness or how well this is made. The good news is it is 1-inch thick table with 130 pounds that give it sturdiness. Rods are made from the solid steel which makes them very durable. Players are of plastic instead of the metal that can be the issue down a road. Ball bearings are plastic in place of steel. So, what does it mean? The Hathaway foosball table is heavy and thick which means it can withstand vigorous play for some time. However, it is more susceptible to the damage than the real wood. Above each goal is the bead scoring system and on both side of the scoring system are cup holders – 4 in total.  This indicates that the table is made for hobby players and intermediate hobby players who know how to play foosball with friends.

PROS

  • Sturdiness
  • Aesthetics
  • Solid steel rods
  • For intermediate play

Hathaway Metropolitan Foosball Table

hathaway metropolitan foosball table

The Hathaway foosball table which is made with impressive quality materials is definitely Metropolitan foosball table. The cabinet of the table is made from super strong CARB certified MDF with cherry melamine wrapping. Not only it is great quality, it looks great too. The legs are made from the same material with included adjustable leg levelers. The arched legs are designed to withstand hard play and to be extremely stable. Ergonomic handles on the chrome-plated steel rods provide you great control over the players. Both team players are set in the 3-man goalie system for faster gameplay and they are ABS quality, divided into black and silver teams.

Hathaway Hurricane Foosball Table

Hathaway Hurricane Foosball Table

After heavy duty Metropolitan, I will present you more relaxed Hathaway foosball table. The Hurricane is a table made for fun and occasional play with your friends and family. The cabinet is constructed from CARB certified MDF, just like the legs with adjustable leg levelers. The design is very different from the last table (Metropolitan) because the table has slim legs. Chrome-plated rods and ergonomic handles are used to control ABS players for the excellent match. The end ball return is not as good as the side ball return because you can’t continue the game immediately after the goal. I don’t think that is important on this hobby table, but for a tournament table, it is a big deal.

PROS

  • MDF table legs
  • MDF playing surface
  • Quality chrome steel rods
  • Adjustable leg levelers
  • ABS molded men

CONS

  • Quality
  • Duel end ball returns
  • For hobby players

Hathaway Gladiator Folding Foosball Table

Hathaway Gladiator Folding Foosball Table

This is the unique foosball table made by Hathaway. The design itself looks interesting and the fact that it is a foldable foosball table makes it even better. It is one of the few foosball tables on the market and the only from Hathaway foosball tables which has this feature. The materials used in this table aren’t anything new, CARB certified MDF and ABS molded players. The rods on the table are the same, steel chrome-plated rods with ergonomic handles for better player control. The extra long leg on one side is for better stability and to fold the table when it is not in use. Like other Hathaway tables, this one also has the end ball return. Not my favorite but OK.
