      Years ago I played on Stiga Privat Roller 3/4" thick top. It was faster than than any of the other Stiga tables.

      I don't know the exact model, but the newest gewo tables have the best spin, because their surface is very non-grippy.
      joola and cornilleau are okay spin-wise, butterfly and tsp are bad to terrible. again because of surface grip.

      they need to standardize table surfaces. It can just be too much of a difference.

      At one recreation center, there is a Killerspin table non friction top like some Giant dragon tables I have played on, compared to a Stiga table the KS has 10-20% more spin and about that much less in speed.

      Would be interesting to know which Gewo table in this case. I am quite certain that they do not make their own tables, many of those are made by Sponeta like the Gewo Europa 25 ITTF table which is just a Sponeta S7-23. We bought one of those lately, I can't really say I notice a huge difference compared with an earlier Sponeta table (S7-63).

      The Giant Dragon and DHS showcourt tables have a slicker and faster surface with less spin compared to the Butterfly Centerfold and the Joola 3000-SC in my experience.

      The matted blue tables are better because the spin is not reduced

      yep, they are indeed made by Sponeta. I'll look up the model when I encounter one again.

      As far as speed is concerned, grippy tables are faster when playing against loopers but slower when playing defenders.
      I hear the hardness of the floor also affects the bounce. soft floor is slower, hard floor faster.

      The Yinhe Pro 25 seems to play slow compared to Stiga tables.
