Anyone have any idea how good this is? Reviews seem pretty good and the delivery charge can be negated by picking up in store (for me anyway). My son loves air hockey and this would be awesome for Christmas(for both of us).

Don't get these things.
Real billiards tables and air hockey tables are larger than this, sturdier than this, and more durable than this. If it's for a pretty young kid, maybe it'll be okay. But keep in mind it is not and will not play like a real pool table nor a real air hockey table. it will feel (and is) cheap

Tournament size is 9' for billiards and those tables are $1000+. Obviously, you're not paying anywhere close to that in OP's deal.

Been looking for a table for the game room. looks like a good deal. I do hope it's an 8' table, but 7' will do!

Actually, full size tables are 9 foot (10 foot tables do exist too, but are kinda rare. If you go to a pool hall, expect 9 foot [while called "9-foot", playing area is 100 inches by 50 inches. Then add ~1 foot to length and width for rails/body of the table])

Almost guaranteed, no where near as good.

I'd have to say I agree, you get what you pay for. Looking at this I estimate it is still over priced. I wouldn't imagine it would last anywhere near as long as a half decent quality slate pool table. Talking a few years vs decades.

Oops. Thank you. I did mean to type 9 feet for tournament size. 8 feet is the standard size.

This appears to be a wooden table. Expect a lot of warpage, which will completely affect the roll. You can usually find used tables on craigslist made of wood for very little, as well as slate tables.

Bottom line: if you plan on keeping a pool table for a while, go with slate, even if used. You'll have to refelt it, but its worth it.

Yes I've seen same tables cheaper than this that actually look like they gonna last unlike this one.

If you actually want to enjoy playing pool, a decent slate table makes a big difference. Find a local company that does moves, and start hitting Craigslist regularly until some pop up. You might have a local reconditioner/reseller that prices delivered and installed. Or you might have to get the move separately. For a 7' table that's well used but reconditioned well you might get an installed deal for $500-$800 on the low end. I found a 10y/o table near totally perfect for 1025 all-in delivered and set up. Big hit with the family getting good use! Super social activity for kids and adults. YMMV on many factors including local demographics....
