Keep in Mind
Do remember that the STIGA Advantage series has three tables, all of the regulation size. They are as following:
1) STIGA Advantage Lite Recreational Indoor
This is the cheapest and the lowest quality indoor table tennis of ping pong tables in the STIGA Advantage series designed specifically for casual gameplay. It has a very thin table top that is certainly not ideal for serious playing. The ping pong table is still a sturdy and decent option for recreational usage, as it was intended.
2) STIGA Advantage Competition Ready
This is the ideal professional level product for amateur and serious players. It has a 16mm thick table top, and a very decent frame. It is light weight as compared to the Pro but it still is heavier as compared to other table halves that have similar qualities.
3) STIGA Advantage Pro Tournament-Quality
This is the top-end professional level product of the Advantage series and is an excellent option for a tournament player who wants to level up the competition. The Pro is the tournament quality indoor table tennis table we are reviewing and it is an elite product with 19mm thick table top, 4″lockable casters for convenient storage, frame with understudy, and a premium net and post set that will outlive you, possibly.
It also is the most expensive among the three tables designed specifically for professional level gameplay and it is expensive because of the right reasons, as we have discussed here.
How to assemble a STIGA Advantage Pro ping pong table?
Assembling the Advantage lite is fairly easy, as it comes 95% preassembled in the box. This tournament quality indoor table tennis table comes in two completely separate table halves, which are to be assembled individually. Once they are assembled, they are easy to effortlessly roll and transport table halves making the storing extremely easy. The folding and unfolding of the ping pong table are a one-man job and the clamp style net and post set is easy to strap on.
How much does the STIGA Advantage Pro Table Tennis Table weigh?
The STIGA Advantage Pro table is quite heavy. As it has a strong frame and tough understudy, it is hardly a surprise that the table weighs 211lbs or 95 Kgs.
What is the difference between the STIGA Advantage Pro and the STIGA Triumph table?
The STIGA Advantage Pro is the better option when compared to the STIGA Triumph table. This is due to several things, including the Stiga Advantage table tennis table’s 19mm thick table top for the Advantage Pro and barely 16mm for the STIGA Triumph.
The STIGA Triumph also requires more time to set up when compares to the Original Advantage Pro, however, the Triumph is the cheaper option, as well.
STIGA Advantage Pro versus the ST3100
The ST3100 is one of the best products of STIGA. This indoor table tennis table is a well-engineered product and comes with thick premium lockable casters for convenient storage allowing it to effortlessly roll making transporting table halves a breeze; however, setting it up can be a nightmare.
There is not much difference in how the ping pong tables play out, as both ping pong tables have the same amount of table thickness, but in some cases the Advantage Pro fares better, for example the ease with which the clamp style net assembles. As compared to the ST3100, the Advantage Pro has a more professional look, too.
There is no doubt that the STIGA Advantage Pro is a top-tournament quality indoor table tennis table which is not only to set-up but also one you will not need to upgrade on, for a long, long time! The premium lockable casters for convenient storage are 4 inches thick, which means that the table can rolls effortlessly around the house with ease and comes with great portability making transporting table halves easier than ever.
The only problem we see in this tournament quality indoor table tennis table is how heavy it is, but the playback experience along with top tier net and post set has convinced us that you only need to set it up once and enjoy until you have friends over, who can help you in setting it up for an evening full of ping pong fun!
