Best Table Hockey Game?

Looking for a table hockey game (not knock hockey or air hockey)
I want quality and playability, not one of the cheaper STIGA games. Those are fun but I want something I can be proud to show my friends before waxing them on it.

Any price range is fine, and preferably no bubble.

Do they still make that game where the players can shoot top shelf?

Thanks for suggestions and advice

I too would like an awesome hockey table, one with a goalie who can "play" the puck.

The reason why many people like the Stiga table is because the goalie can actually play the puck. The standard table top hockey game, and arcade table top rod hockey games, only have the goalie move side to side. So if you set your center up with a pass, you have the goalie at your mercy since he can't slide the puck away.

I think the best ones were the Coleco ones that my brothers and I had as kids. There's actually a pretty cool high quality reproduction of one on ebay:

Go to www.Tablehockey.com . Rick Benej makes the best games in the world. Also try ebay for a remake of the Coleco 5380 game.

Hello, first post here.

I had one of those Coleco replica games, and they aren't good. To compare it to the old Coleco 5380 game you love is to compare the Minnesota Metrodome to Yankee Stadium.

I just sold my last old Coleco game on ebay last week (unopened, no less), and I daresay you'd be happier looking there and hoping for a good deal than buying one those one replicas... (the way the puck bounces is absolutely awful).

Try putting some clear hot glue in the two hollow parts of the puck. This will add a little bit more weight but will not effect it to much. Also the new Coleco 5380's will not sag over time...
