Rebound quality is the major component of the playing experience, along with spin response. The thickness of the playing surface has a direct influence on the height - and therefore the quality - of the rebound. We believe that all players deserve very good rebound quality. For some seasoned players, the thickness of the playing surface is a major criterion. So for those players, who often play in a club setting, and for everyone who loves the rebound quality offered by chipboard table tops, Cornilleau outdoor tables have a core laminate playing surface with thicknesses of up to 8mm for the 700X (link to product), providing a rebound quality comparable to that of a competition table. Another component with a key role is the frame. The frame is the part that surrounds the playing surface. It supports the panel and allows it to remain perfectly flat over time. The thicker it is, the stronger the hold on the playing surface.
