A 25mm medium density fiberboard tabletop provides the table with the ultimate bounce. This is what makes the 415 Max the most advanced table in the UnPlugNPlay series. Players can expect the best and most consistent bounce from playing on a heavy-duty surface like this.
The tabletop is protected by a scuff-resistant UV finish which protects the surface from ball marks and chipping.
A heavier undercarriage than the other models provides the table with a sturdy and solid stance. This also helps with safer and more steady mobility. This thicker top and heavier undercarriage make this a comfortably heavier table than others in the series, which is ideal for more advanced play but will require more force during transport and folding.
If 25mm is too thick for you and is too heavy of a table, have a look at the Killerspin UnPlugNPlay Mega, which is 18mm and slightly more affordable.
One slight defect of the UnPlugNPlay 415 Max is that you will have to assemble the table yourself. This process is made easier by using the BILT application, which gives a step-by-step guide to building your table.
This can be made into an exciting activity with the family, as you’re building a table which is going to provide years of fun.
A folding design makes it easy to store the table when not in use. Both halves of the table fold into one another and can be stored in a smaller space comfortably. Please note, this is a heavy table and will most probably require more than one person when it comes to folding.
Locking caster wheels on each half of the table ensures the table is secure in the storage position.
The UnPlugNPlay 415 Max has full playback functionality and is achieved by folding up one half of the table into the storage position and leaving the one half in the normal play position.
This allows players to practice long hours when there isn’t a friendly rival up for a game.
Each half of the table has 4 locking caster wheels, making transport safe and comfortable. These wheels each have a lock, meaning the UnPlugNPlay 415 Max is secure and stable in storage or during a match.
Having a solid wheel system is vital to the free-flowing, easy mobility of your table.
4 built-in adjustable height levelers ensure that the games are played on a perfectly level surface at all times.
Sometimes, the table may not be set up on a perfectly flat surface, which will lead to an uneven and inconsistent bounce. Having height levelers helps adjust in these environments.
Killerspin has included their premium screw-on net and post system, which means you won’t need to go looking for a new net anytime soon.
This screw-on net provides the ultimate stability and rigidity, and you’ll seldom need to tighten the net during games.
Each side of the tabletop can store up to 8 balls, making games go smooth as ever.
On the side of the tabletop, where the player stands, there is a built-in paddle holder for each opposite side. These holders can store up to 2 paddles each.
Essentially, one half is for ping pong balls, and the other is for paddles.
Killerspin is becoming one of the fastest-growing brands in table tennis. They are one of the newer brands, but the quality and innovation in their products is undeniable.
