Butterfly Table Tennis
If you talk to a table tennis enthusiast and mention the name, “Butterfly”, you will most likely hear gushing praise for the quality of their equipment. Over 50% of the players at World and European Championships use Butterfly equipment, and their tables are routinely used in major tournaments such as the U.S. Open.
The Nippon fulfils a certain niche in Butterfly’s extensive range of tables. Most competitive tables are either stationary, or designed for minimal portability. Sure, many manufacturers, including Butterfly, have a few competition level tables with rollaway designs, but folding and moving them is cumbersome at best. Moreover, very few are designed to withstand the damage that frequent folding/rolling can inflict.
The Butterfly Nippon Rollaway ping pong table, on the other hand, is sturdy enough the take all the abuse of frequent folding/rolling without getting damaged. The folding/rolling mechanism is extremely easy to use and requires minimal effort. If you need a table that can be quickly moved out of the way after a game, then this is the table for you.
It has a 7/8″ (22 mm) solid compressed wood top. The top is scratch-proof and offers good bounce, speed and spin. The table is supported by 2″ square wooden legs that lend it a classic, almost Spartan look (in contrast to the rather garish steel legs on other tables). A 2″ x 3/4″ steel rail lends additional support to the structure, while a set of four 5″ rubber wheels finish off the rollaway design.
The table is shipped in a single carton and weighs a little over 280 lbs. This might be a little too heavy for most people, but the rollaway design makes it easy to move it out of the way when needed. The table requires assembly before first use, but it is quite easy to do so following the assembly instructions provided. The table also comes with a 3 year warranty against any manufacturing defects.
The table comes in a classic green finish. Along with the wooden legs, this lends it a sturdy, old-school look. The first thing you will notice when you look at it the first time is how strikingly beautiful it looks, especially the smooth, green top.
