Who makes a superior table?
Fairchild deluxe side table ($185)
or
Malloy pro rolling table ($298).

Usually I would say "more expensive is better."
Have any of you personally compared both the above products?

Thanks for reviews,
Dani

I can't give you a fair comparison between the two as I have not used the Fairchild table. I can tell you that I purchased my Malloy table about 2 1/2 years ago and it has stood up to the rigors of many performances. For me it was well worth the investment.
We are all about as successful as we choose to be.

I own two Malloys... Aside from top-notch quality, you are also recieving an item from a well rounded builder/designer... I'd give him a call and talk to him about the tables... He won't give you the run-around!

Asides the table top looking a bit more posh on the Malloy table the base is about the same no matter where you go....Fairchild, Malloy, Chalet, Dancing Spring...Etc....they all get them pretty much from the same place. Or at least it looks as if they do...So honestly I don't think you can or will go wrong which ever way you go....

My point was that many of these builders research their designs and materials and could tell you the differences between their table and the competitors... Call around and find out from them...

As for myself, I'm more than happy with my Malloy models and know if anything went wrong with them, Doug would probably be more than willing to make sure his product was in top working order...

The Fairchild table is great looking as well... I wish I had one here to compare apple to oranges.

Sorry for not being clear on my first response... Hope this helps!

Wellingtons design looks great and it probably tops both Fairchild and Malloy but I guess that's evolution. price also tops em all but I guess that's being a league ahead.

I'm sure there are loads of others out there but it all comes down to: is Fairchilds $200 model as sturdy and "built to last" as Wellingtons 375-790 range?

they all look pretty and I would imagine they do the same job (hold props) and present themselves on stage.

Danryb,

I have not seen either table so I can not compare them. But I am very familiar with Fairchild and his work and you will not go wrong with anything Joe builds. He spent years on the road as a performer. He understands what is required in terms of durability and packing. And most important, he is completely honest and trustworthy. (I'm not suggesting that Malloy is not!)If you do business with Joe, you will be happy!

Thanks for all the above

the only problem now is getting one of these tables sent airmail without doubling the cost of the actual product.

Malloy is asking roughly $300 for table and $300 for post = nearly $600

Fairchild is asking $185 for table and $200 for post = around $385

I have asked Wellington
for a post quote on $375 for table and $? for post = $?

any one have any idea how to bring the price of postage down?
anyone coming over to Israel on vacation in the very near future?

I'm in Eilat Chezaday - that is the furthest point south of israel. positioned within the triangle of borders between Akaba (Jordan) and Sinai (Egypt) and we (Eilat, Akaba and Sinai) all enjoy the tip of the Red sea and the red mountains all around us.
it truely is a peaceful and beautiful place to visit and live and it is booming here with tourism because of it's geographical nature and hot climate all year round.

If you make it out here or cross one of the borders, give me buzz and let me know.

by the way - at the end of November we will be hosting the MARS (magic at the red sea) magicians seminar for three days at the Isrotel King Solomon Hotel. if any one is interested in joining then pm me and I'll give you details. it will include lectures by quentin Reynolds, Greg Wilson, Pavel, Anthony Darkstone and more...

thanks also for the opinions on the tables above

I always hated that the tables were so low. So I did a screach on google and WOW. You can get a table base at many places cheaper then from a MAGIC site.

You can get table tops with these bases also.
