Air flow hockey table

We have the goal flex air hockey table by DMI. the puck does not slide well on it. There doesn't seem to be alot of air coming out of the holes. Actually if you look at the fans underneath the air flow coming out towards the floor is pretty strong.

We made a fixture that allows us to clean the table top. We took a piece of wood larger than the fan opening, drilled a hole in it, and installed an air fitting for use with our home air compressor. WIth the fans removed, we run the compressor and hold the fixture against the bottom of the table. That forces all that air to exit out the table surface. To concentrate the flow over problem areas we cover sections of the table during the process. Also, you may need new pucks too if they are old and worn.

What are the rules in official air hockey games?


In official air hockey games, there are basic USAA rules that the players need to play by: Players can stand anywhere around their side of the air hockey table (center), but cannot go to the sides. Players cannot touch the puck (palming). If any part of their body or clothes touches the puck, a "palming foul" is called. Players can hit the puck with every part of the mallet, besides the bottom part. There should be only one puck during gameplay. A player can use only one air hockey mallet. A player cannot place the mallet on the puck in order to slow it or stop it (topping). When the puck is on the center line, both players can strike it. Once the puck is in the player's side of the centerline, he/she has 7 seconds to strike it back. For more rules, check out these websites: http://www.justairhockeytables.com/air-hockey-tables/airhockeyrulesarticle.cfm, http://www.ehow.com/facts_4868311_official-air-hockey-rules.html, and http://www.sportssearchdata.com/articles/606/1/Basic-Rules-of-Air-Hockey/Page1.html.

What's an Air Hockey gameplay?


The games play as described by USAA:

  • The mallet is gripped behind the knob using one's fingertips, not on top of it. This allows more wrist action and helps the player to move the mallet around the table faster.
  • For basic defense, the mallet is kept centered at least 8 inches out from the goal. In this position, very slight movements to the left and right will block virtually all straight shots. To block bank shots, one pulls back quickly to the corners of the goal. This is known as the "triangle defense".
  • Shots are often hit out of "drifts", where the puck travels in set patterns designed to throw off the opponent's expectations and timing. The most popular drifts are the "center", "diamond", "diagonal", and "L".
  • Shots are often organized into "combos", meaning groups of shots which are hit with the same apparent delivery but opposite directions, caused by hitting the puck at slightly different locations on the mallet. For example, a transverse motion of the right arm can lead to a "cut shot" to the left corner of the opponent's goal or a "right wall under" (bank off the right wall, into the right corner of the opponent's goal).

What are the rules of Air Hockey?


Here are some basic rules as defined by the USAA:
  • A face-off or coin toss decides which player gets the first possession of the puck.
  • The first person to score 7 points by shooting the puck into the opponent's goal wins the game. When the puck breaks the horizontal plane inside the goal, a point is counted, whether or not captured by the electronic scoring device.
  • Once the puck is on a certain player's side of the center line, he/she has 7 seconds to hit the puck back across the center line. Otherwise a foul is committed and the opponent receives possession of the puck.
  • Placing one's mallet on top of the puck, known as topping, is a foul. Here the opponent receives possession of the puck.
  • A player cannot touch or strike the puck with any part of his/her body or with any object other than the mallet. Doing so causes a foul and possession changes hands.
  • If the puck is on a clear path into the goal and the player stops it with anything other than the mallet, this is goaltending. Here the opponent receives a free shot.
  • Hitting the puck when it is on the opposite side of the center line, or crossing the center line completely with one's mallet causes a foul. Here the opponent receives possession of the puck.
  • Red lines in the air hockey should not be crossed by the air hockey mallet. (Catalan Champion Chip)
  • If there is a red line on the goals, it means that you cannot keep the air hockey mallet behind the red line. (Catalan Champion Chip)
  • If the puck leaves the table, a foul is called on the player that caused the puck to go out of play due to offensive motion and the opposing player gets possession of the puck. Generally, when a player causes the puck to leave the table with a forward motion of the mallet, even defensively (known as charging), the foul is charged on them. An out of play foul results in the opponent receiving possession of the puck.
  • The players playing cannot touch the puck at any time during pl ay, but if one player scores they can put the puck in loser's side.

What's the use of the Air Hockey Mallet?


The Air Hockey mallet is used to strike the pucks along the Air Hockey table in the direction you want to strike. You should strike the puck with enough force in order to be able to score a goal at the other end of the table, after a couple of game you'll get the idea.

Which Air Hockey table should I buy?


If you want an approved for USAA tournaments then you can check out any of the 8 foot long Dynamo Air Hockey table, just stay away from the "Hot Flash" series.

In the "Hot Flash" Air Hockey tables the painted rails make the puck fly off a lot, and fluorescent table-top makes it hard to see the puck.

A new Dynamo table price varies from $1500 to 2500$ so you should take it into consideration.

No answer for you, but I am looking for the accessories to the table...scorekeeping bar (the slide), the goals (top and bottomside), maybe even the electronic score/timer device. Paddles and pucks, too. Its a year and a half later, but do you still have? tspencer68@att.net.

Puck doesn't glide well


the problem that you are facing now is that you have made the holes to big for the fan to be able to distribut the air evenly so in turn you will need to get a bigger fan to compinsate for the larger holes, one of the things that we did to get the puck to slide alot better was to apply car polish to the table and the puck, let it dry then shine it like you would to your own car, i hope this helps
