Cal Spas Tables, Are they a good product?

Post by » Sat, 24 Feb 1996 04:00:00

I am looking at buying a Cal Spas table.  Are they well made?

They are about $500-$1000 less than a comparable brunswick.  I don't mind paying for
a good table, but if I can save some cash, why not?  Anyway, I would appreciate any

They also offer a manufactured surface, I think they call it "Slatex" or something
like that.  It has always been my opinion that slate was the way to go.  It's only
about $200 cheaper to go with this alternative surface, I don't think it makes sense
to save 10% on a table if it is an inferior surface.

Thanks for any insight.

The proof is in the long-run.  There have been a lot of materials used to
replace slate.   Most have not worked.  What kind of a warranty do they have
on warpage?

I wish you the best of luck.  If someone really has a workable artificial
slate, that would be great.
