This outdoor table is one of the cheapest outdoor tables that you can get in this segment. Needless to say, it can easily withstand all the extreme weather conditions. The galvanized metal that is used to build this table makes it rust resistant.
The assembly of the table is very easy as it is made in Stiga’s patented quickplay chassis design. Because of the heavy weight of the table (nearly 230 lbs), you will need another person to assemble it. You’ll also need a few tools namely, crescent wrench, screwdriver and a drill, if you want to ease the assembly process. It will take nearly two hours to assemble all the pieces into one.
It comes with all-terrain wheels, so it can easily be moved over any surface. Due to its weight, the wheels are susceptible to damage if you move it around too frequently. It’s much better to leave the table as it is, once it is setup, and move it only for minor distances.
One noticeable drawback that the Baja table has is its sub-par bounce. There is a difference in the bounce at the center and at the edges of the table. If you are an intermediate or a professional level player, then you should avoid buying this table as you might get irritated by the uneven bounce. But if you’re a beginner and only plan to play ping pong for recreational purpose and fun, there’s no better option you can find at this price. The table is also a bit noisy as compared to other models, but since it is an outdoor table, this shouldn’t be much of a problem.
Its legs has levelers which enables you to adjust the table if you have to keep it on an uneven surface. The wheels come with a locking mechanism which is a good feature to keep the table steady.
The Stiga Baja table is a budget model for an outdoor table which is a fairly good choice for novices and beginners.
