Rafale 2.0 is the successor of Rafale 1.0 which was introduced in 2016 and has become one of the most successful tables in carom-history: first table entirely manufactured from aluminum, a new approach to rail-construction, endless customizing possibilities, a very exclusive design and as result numerous tournaments were played, and records broken, on this table. Development however continued, and it was decided that further upgrades were impossible to integrate in Rafale 1.0; hence Rafale 2.0, which was introduced at the end of 2019.

This new platform provides more possibilities for the upgrades we wanted to implement: improved stability, a highly advanced heating-system, quieter and above all, a “longer” rail-response while keeping the desired speed. Final testing was conducted by Torbjörn Blomdahl, Eddy Merckx and Martin Horn and in meanwhile, every single one of them has installed a Rafale 2.0 in their private training-rooms… Rafale 2.0 is available with a playing area of 284 cm x 142 cm and in a very wide range of colors.
