The Halex foosball table review
At a glimpse: The Halex 50156 Monterey Foosball Soccer Table
Before we dive into the details, here are some of the things we gathered up at first sight of the Halex 50156 Monterey Foosball Soccer Table. The Halex 50156 Monterey Foosball Soccer Table is definitely not your petite or kid-size table.
It seems to be like a spot-on regulation size table, and upon checking, voila! We were right. The Halex Monterey Foosball Table measures 57 ¼ inches in length, 34 inches in height and 31 inches in width.
Look wise, the table is made majorly out of, what seems to be, high-quality wood. It has a great finish and gives off a very old-world and vintage charm. A good-looking foosball table, no doubt there. Alright, that’s the initial scanning done and out of the way.
Now, let’s dive into the details!
The cabin of the Halex Monterey Foosball Table measures, like we said before, 57 and ¼ inches in length and 31 inches in width. The side panels on each side are made entirely from would along with the rest of the table.
One thing we really liked is that the panels of the cabin come with engraved detailing. As for the interior, it has an oak wood veneer and is fairly easy to play on.
Although we must say, we do always look forward to the green and white interior.
On each end of the width of the Halex 50156 Monterey Foosball Soccer Table, you will find an abacus style scorekeeper which up to 10 beads.
This is great because, usually, we will only see as many as 5 on standard foosball tables. On the length of the cabin, you will find a cutout for the ball return system.
The playing rods on the Halex 50156 Monterey Foosball Soccer table are constructed of 5/8 of an inch solid steel. They are very lightweight, yet just weighty enough for smooth and impactful playing.
On the end of each playing rod, you will find solid wood handles with 8 faces. This gives each player amazing grip and comfort.
The players on the Halex Monterey Foosball Table are your pro-style and counterbalanced faceless players.
Being counterbalanced, each of the players will revert back to its original and horizontal position a soon as you release the rod. This means, no blockage and better scoring probabilities
Now, if you take a look at the legs of the Halex 50156 Monterey Foosball Soccer Table, you will see that they are also made from wood. The legs are 5 and ½ inch square oak finish legs with engraved details just like the cabinet.
They are strong and sturdy, and more than capable enough to take on the weight of the cabin above it. One thing that disappoints us is the legs do come with levelers.
This means you could be compromising on the positioning and evenness of the table. You have to place the Halex Monterey Foosball Table in an absolutely flat and level floor. No buts.
