Garlando G-500 Foosball Table
The G-500 is primarily designed for active use settings so you would expect it to be more than a little robust and that it is with a solid 25mm thick cabinet and four 90mm x 90mm solid MDF legs. The maple wood finish on the cabinet may not be the latest design, but if you like the idea of the G500 and want it in a more modern design, check out the new Garland G-500 Design & Style series.
You get 16mm diameter steel telescopic rods as standard which makes for a very safe environment (no bars in the eye or the groin area!) and a fast action in play. The players are plastic and moulded to the bars which makes for good durability and goalkeepers are 360 degree rotating type.
The play area is green laminate with white pitch markings so you get a rather traditional display which is quite nice. Slanted corners are standard with the G500, although due to the laminate of the play field, the corners are plastic pyramid type, which is functional albeit not quite as nice as traditional French babyfoot tables using vinyl.
A three year warranty comes as standard and the table is certified against the European safety standard EN71-1/2/3/9
Who’s the G-500 for?
Garlando have designed this foosball table for pretty much anyone. It’s more than robust enough for workplace breakout zones, youth clubs and of course for use at home
How does it play?
The G-500 plays very well as you might expect for this type of table. Expect fast, full-on play from its laminate play field and plastic players, though do expect a little less control
Is Garlando’s G-500 good value for money?
At slightly less than £500, the G-500 is approaching that target price of where a foosball table really needs to be offering as many features as possible and providing a top quality game play experience. If you are simply after a couple of hours of highly involved fun, then yes it is good value, however if you want a little more control and perhaps a more enhanced experience, you might consider a French style table, or a Garlando with sanded glass play area, albeit for a higher asking price
