According to this site:
Kick is also the exclusive importer and distributor for Rene Pierre fussball tables.

Rene Pierre are absolutely fantastic tables.

Which table are you looking for Garth?

Which table do you endorse Mase?

Welcome to the forum Doc!

I "myself" prefer to play on Garlando, Tornado, Eurosoccer, Tec Ball, or Bonzini, after that i might consider a RP.

Do you play on an RP yourself. (shall we call you phil or doc)?

Hi Mase,

Yeah _ I play a RP leader.

I used to work at a design company in darkest Leicester that had one and when I left I invested in one that I bought off a crack head in Putney for £56.

What makes rene so low down on your list sir?

please call me Dr Dushra.

I acquired this name for my unorthadox throw ins which many felt were cheating !!!

I like the way you can control the cork balls on the rene.

Is this possible on all of the other manufacturers you mention or are they hit and hopers?

Now that Bar Kick has switched to Bonzini I don't think they distribute Rene Pierre any more (I'm sure Caroline will let us know if this is incorrect).

Personally I can't tell the difference between Bonzini and Rene Pierre in any case so you might be able to get a Bonzini from Bar Kick.

Cheers,
Rhys

What do you fellas think a realistic offer would be on that RP considering the following:

1. Is clearly look like a good example

2. Anyone who goes on 'The Price Is Right' is clearly a MOD Please note the use of slang foul language should be avoided dunce!

The cheeky MOD, as with the warning above.

I know for a fact Dr Clam went on Bullseye in the late 80s.

I'd be Roy to make her an offer. Want to make sure I don't get my pants pulled down over the price though ba.

Any ideas on what might be reasonable?

That sounds about right, Roy.

We want Rene Pierre's on our website because they are a (slightly) cheaper version of the Bonzini's, which are often priced out of peoples budget.

I'll pm caroline although I've tried Kick in the past but had no reply, they are still sold by some of our competitors so there must be a distributor somewhere.

These are much cheaper Bonzini clones:

Also had a PM from Henry Zhang who wanted to sell me a batch of very cheap Babyfoot replicas. (his profile takes you to the website)

Looks like he may have had a rollickng from the mods for it though? :?

We want good quality tables on our website, although not as good as Bonzini's, I would still consider Rene Pierre a good quality table, not fire wood (Thats why we dont sell Harvard on our website!!!)
