Garlando F-20 Folding Leg Foosball Table
The F-20 is first and foremost a great value for money foosball table designed for young players and family members. It’s a full size table which means it’s great for adults to play alongside children. However where most foosball tables need to be permanently sited, the F-20 can be folded away and wheeled into a wardrobe or left up against the wall if space is at a premium.
Whilst the solid bars allow for fast fun and will last a long time, they are what’s also known as ‘through the table’ bars. This means that when a player one side thrusts the bar forward to allow his player to get the ball, it pushes the end of the bar right through the other side of the table. This can be dangerous if you have young, or indeed excitable children around and can cause eye or groin injury. However, please do bear in mind that this is by no means exclusive to Garlando and many lower cost foosball tables feature the same setup – just please be aware of this before buying.
Melamine play areas whilst fast when new, are less controllable than sanded glass or vinyl. Also plastic players and plastic balls also allow for a fun fast game, but so too tend to offer less control. Whilst this may be of no issue to kids playing the table, adults may lose interest rather rapidly. Also do bear in mind that the Garlando F20 (and again, others in this price bracket) don’t feature sloping corners which can mean balls get stranded in the corners and have to be taken out and re-served.
The legs on most tables in this price range don’t usually feature leg levellers, so ensuring the the table stays flat might be a little problematic and may require some blocking under the legs, but as already mentioned, it’s not something solely confined to Garlando.
The F-20 is a fun table that doesn’t have to cost a great deal of money. The option to fold the legs away and wheel it into a cupboard makes it seriously convenient. Assembly can be a pain as are most of these things, but for a small cost, the F-20 can be assembled in your home by our expert delivery team, which can negate a major issue. Overall, certainly lacking in some areas as are all tables in this price band, but we rate it very highly
How does it play?
Like all the tables in the 4Fun series, the F-20 features a melamine laminate play area, plastic players and balls. it will be fast and frantic, but may not offer as much control as the pro series tables
How durable is the F-20?
There’s one thing for sure, Garlando haven’t gotten to where they are without properly supporting their products and the F-20 is no different. Solid body with solid components should see this lasting a good while
What about assembly?
The F-20 is unfortunately another Garlando table that will require full assembly and we recommend two people and allowing 1-1/2 hours, or ask us to build it for you!
