A great addition to game and rec room spaces, DMI Sports brings air hockey into the 21st century with this American Legend LED-lighted rail air hockey table. It features red, white and blue trailing lights along the rail that track the score while the game is on. When the score is even, embedded LED lights in the rail glow white between the red and blue lines. If the red team takes a lead, the LEDs flash red and stay red to indicate who is in the lead. If the blue team strikes back with a goal, the LEDS flash blue and then return to white signaling the score is even again. If the blue team takes the lead, the blue LEDs flash and remain on until the score changes. The table has a total dimension of 84 x 46 inches, and it has a 78 x 40-inch playing surface. Other features include a deep apron that helps keep the puck in play and a powerful blower motor that enhances the action. The table is backed by a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.
The air hockey table is a classic returning those of us who were young people in the seventies to the regretful recall of violent snap and glowing cheers on windy winter nights. In the single pub in Smalltown, U.S.A., we’d step, beating off the slush and greeting each other town and preppie the same. Then we’d amble to the juke box to try to speculate on the line up, move to the lonely pinball machine to check the high score and who held it, and then make our way to the air hockey table to get our every night catharsis.
The air hockey table was one of the first novelties in my home town how about for you? Was the innovation brought to your home town when you were a kid, or did you discover the delight of air hockey table having a bet later on, when you left home, or went on vacation, or even after you had kids of your own? Was your first air hockey table experience one that involved a low hanging light that got dinged every once in awhile when one player got especially rambunctious with the row and sent the typically close balanced puck flying midair?
Was the air hockey table top surface a primary blue, and did the sound of the hydraulic sheet of air get louder the closer you leaned in for the kill. Did you ever jam the crap out your playing hand between puck and air hockey table goal box or get your knuckles knock by an incoming hard plastic disk and keep playing anyway? When it was time to control sides of the air hockey table, did the find your game favored one particular side did you swear, that is, that one side of the table was more favorable (as you were sure it slanted in your opponent’s favor on the other side). When you and your opponent or buddy got bored with the game, did you pull out a second puck and go bursting playing an extreme version of the air hockey table
One web master has crafted the slogan that air hockey is ‘not a game it’s the world’s fastest table sport.’ An air hockey fan, among the thousands, speaks to the upgrades done on the air hockey table over the years, including discussing some new ‘photon’ table Dynamo sends for the nationals, while another writes to forum fellows to criticize the inequity of titles such as ‘best woman air hockey player’ and to determine who is regardless of gender, race, et. al. the best air hockey player I the WORLD.
Wow, the air hockey table has come a loooong way from my days, when it was often occupied but certainly not for any finals more involved than the best player in the bar, where, at the most, on any given night ten or twelve kids gathered to fashionable slam pinball and slide slam air hockey pucks until the weather cleared enough for the local ice hockey game to commence.
