The Viper brand has two foosball tables and today we will make a review of each Viper foosball table.

VIPER FOOSBALL TABLE REVIEWS

Viper Sheffield Foosball Table

Viper Sheffield Foosball TableThe Sheffield foosball table is a good quality table made for kids, beginners or hobby foosball players. The overall quality is OK, but if you are experienced player, you will feel flaws while playing the game. For example, the first flaw is the weight of the table. The table itself is not that heavy and you can move it if the game gets too intense. The weight is around 120 lbs, which is not a problem for 2-4 adults to move. Another so-called flaw is the lack of counterbalanced players. I think it is a flaw because today there are too many tables with counterbalanced men and it has become a must have for a foosball table. But, not everything on the table is bad. The rods on the table are the best quality. You can compare them with tournament rods and they will be extremely similar. They are made from a great quality material, they are hollow and they provide you the best control over the players. Also, this Viper foosball table has leg levelers which are extremely important. I truly believe that leg levelers should be a part of every foosball table on the market. If you have the straight floor, you won’t need them, but if you don’t, you won’t be able to play the game in peace. Leg levelers are part of the table which you don’t think about until the moment you need it. All in all, for the price and for the beginner or a kid, this Viper foosball table is really good.

PROS

  • Leg levelers
  • High-quality rods
  • Good choice for kids or beginners

CONS

  • No counterbalanced players
  • Not too heavy

Viper Maverick Foosball Table

Viper Maverick Foosball tableThe Maverick foosball table is slightly better than the Sheffield foosball table because it is made to last. It is a durable and stable foosball table and you can play foosball on it for hours. It is made for hobby players and it can provide you really good game play. You can see that it is made more for hobby players than for advanced players because it has 4 cup holders, two on each end of the table and the scoring beads are in the middle, right above the goal.  The table comes with counterbalanced players which is a great thing. Just like the Sheffield Viper foosball table, this table also has leg levelers so you can keep playing even on the uneven surface. It can have problems with some parts like the scorer, but it is nothing serious. It is an OK quality table for the price.

PROS

  • Counterbalanced players
  • Leg levelers
  • Durable and stable

CONS

  • Quality
