Is it better to buy a new foosball table vs used one?
« on: February 05, 2020, 09:35:15 AM »
Hey guys,

I am quite curious to see what people here in the forum think about the never-ending debate between people advising to buy used premium models vs buying new mid-tier models

Keep in mind, that both these tables would cost same amount of money so it is not a matter of budget here.

vote for what you think is best in your experience?

Also, (a shameless plug :D) you can check my site at http://gametablesguide.com/ where I also share my thoughts on foosball tables as well as other game tables such as ping pong and air hockey.

looking forward to see the results  8)

There's a never-ending debate about this? Interesting. I've never heard anyone recommend a lower-quality table over a high-quality table, simply because it's new.

I am not talking here about low quality but more like good tables that are brand new (a table like atomic pro) vs used expensive table like Tornado Sport

I have mixed feelings when it comes to used, even if we're talking about a product that would be too expensive upfront. Better get yourself a new one that isn't as renowned as the second-hand one that has a reputation as it has already seen some mileage from previous users, and you never know how much you're actually gonna get to use it yourself before it becomes garbage.
