Mikame Appearing Table

Mikame Appearing Table £116.25

I really had high hopes for this table and I'm really disappointed.
I've been experimenting with it since Christmas (2 months) and It rarely snaps together correctly when you do the production.
I had planned on using this for my chop cup routine but because it is not a sturdy enough surface you have problems dis-lodging the ball and this results in you having to really slam the cup down which makes an unpleasant noise and tips the trick, even with some padding added it still requires some force to dis-lodge the ball.
The main reason I'm so disappointed with this table is because I previously owned a flash production table which snapped together perfectly everytime but the table surface was wobbly which created a problem of the ball rolling off the table when performing my chop cup.
I had high hopes for the mikame table because it was advertised as "hand made" and "finest quality" etc but I wouldnt recommend it to anyone.
I will probably be selling mine.

Sorry to hear of the problems - have you passed all this information back to the supplier?

It was purchased from emagictricks and I've posted the same thing as a review on their site but they havent put it up yet so they must view them all before posting them.

I doubt they will actually put it up as there are no other reviews for it on that site.

I'm just so annoyed because my girlfriend bought me it for christmas and it's not a small amount of money to spend on a present and it was obvious from the first time I used it it was going to have problems snapping together.

Rather than post a review on emagictricks, why not just e-mail or phone them and detail the problems to give them chance to rectify the situation?
