VERDICT

If you want a stable indoor-only table that you can move easily and store away by yourself when it's not in use, consider the Viper Arlington indoor ping pong table. However, if you're planning to use the table to perfect your skills for tournament play, you might be bothered by its two-halves design that can misalign.

Features:

  • Size: 65in L x 57in W x 8in H
  • Weight: 195lbs
  • 5/8in MDF top
  • Black top
  • 1-1/4in steel frame
  • 1-1/4in square legs
  • Eight 2in wheels - 4 lockable wheels
  • Two halves
  • Net included

Locking System

The Viper indoor table features an easy-to-open and close locking system. Four of the eight 2in wheels are lockable, which makes for a sturdy table, even when the ball is whizzing fast!

Rollaway Design

The rollaway design is ideal if you are going to be the one to dismantle and put up the table; you can do so on your own easily with this type of indoor table.  Just roll it into the corner of your den when it's not in use to maximize your living space.

Thick MDF Top

A thick table tennis top is ideal and that is what you get with the Arlington model. The MDF is 5/8in thick, complemented by a sturdy 1-1/4in steel frame. No wobbly ping pong action going on here!

Playback Mode

Simply prop up one side of the tablet to perfect your ping pong skills when you are playing solo. You might not always have a partner or actually prefer to play alone; if either scenario applies then you will like this feature.

High Value

The excellent construction of the table, plus it being full size, makes it high in value. It has strong steel legs too, and the locking system is a nice safety feature you don't often see on tables under $500.

However, there are some disappointments with the Viper Arlington, including:

Two Separate Halves

While the indoor table tennis table is easy to put together because of its separate halves, this feature is also a potential downside. The halves can misalign and bump around during gameplay, which can halt the game and frustrate players. Readjusting the table can get old really quick.

Black Top

If you are very particular about your table's appearance then the black top may be a pitfall for you. You might prefer green instead. If you care more about the table quality than its color, you won't be deterred by the black top.
