Anybody use 3/8" instead of 1/4" for their playing surface? I've used 1/4 in the past, but I thought it was too firm. Redoing the surface of my table this summer.

Ive used 1/8”& 1/4” velora foam with 1/4 hd open cell foam from yat on top but I don’t think they sell it anymore last I heard. I like the combo but it’s not as firm as just 1/4 velora.

I've used 1/4 velora before and its good stuff. I also tried 1/2 on one of my tables. Its like goldilocks, one was too hard, one too soft. I'm thinking 3/8 might be juuuuuust right. Wanted to know if anyone has used it.

Another option that was highly recommended in the CT days is to go to your local swimming pool supply store and get the foam that is used to put under above ground pools.

This. 1/2" and you'll have chips jumping everywhere. Splashed pots almost always spill chips into others stacks. It's just way too bouncy.
