New here, quick question.

I've been playing on Tornado tables recently but was trying to remember the table I grew up playing on. It seemed like everyone had the same one:

Single goalie, slanted corners, synthetic players.

Looked like this one:

but I can't find anything else mentioning Murrey tables. Does anyone know what it was?

The men and green playfield in your photo are consistent with a DeutschMaster twhich was a common able from the 1970s and 80s. However, the handles to a DM were hard black ribbed plastic and the outer body was usually a darker veneer.

Looks like a Bluetop (QuarterMillion Dollar Game) butcher block table... has the Bluetop (and the TS Greentop before that, too) painted red and blue men.. BUT SOMEONE PUT the latter TS browntop "Coca-Cola Can" knobby handles on it. I've seen the Deutscher-Meisters get upgraded to those TS or other similar clone playing figures... but the original Deutscher-Meister playing figures had flatter and thinner feet, not to mention square feet. The next D-M playing figures had feet closer to the shape of the TS Greentop/Bluetop tables (which Strikers tables also adopted in the early 90s), but they were still square toed.

Deutscher-Meisters seemed to be everywhere around the country before the 80's .. Much more so than the TS Bluetop/Greentops... I don't remember TS tables proliferating until the TS Browntops started to in 79/80 ... And there were Deutscher-Meisters everywhere around. So that's prolly that one foos table "everyone" had. If you remember hollow rods with very quick action as well as coil-spring and damper type bushings.. You're talikin' D-M. If you remember solid rods with solid bushings with simple iron or steel washers, then that'd be that picture you have... a Bluetop/Greentop albeit with Browntop handles.

Yes but who amongst us remembers the 'Championship' tables. The arcade I grew up near had 3 kinds, TS, Dynamo and Championship, we just called them Champions. I liked them as well as Dynamo, but always hated TS, always. They were (TS) before my time as a true player, and I was glad to see them go. The champions also disappeared. Haven't seen one since, they were great precision machines with wood handles and played like a tornado though heavier duty with the solid rods and single man goalie rod. Fast though, with white TS-like balls but rougher/courser texture, not smooth and slick like TS but more like Tornado balls. Green top, butcher block oak cabinet but the men resembled TS but red and yellow jerseys and white charlie chaplain hats. I'd like to see one again someday.

I had a Champion for many years. Too bad the men broke like the TS's. I think most of my 5 row guys had the feet glued back on and drilled out from the bottom with a nail for reinforcement. :)
