Shuffleboard Powder is one of the most important elements of playing the game. In order to choose the powder that is right for you please follow the following guidelines. Speed 1 is the fastest powder and Speed 7 is the slowest. The longer the shuffleboard table the faster the powder and the shorter the shuffleboard table, the slower the powder required. So if you have a 14ft-22ft table then we recommend Speeds between 1 and 4. If you have 9ft to 12ft tables then we recommend speed 5, 6 or 7. This is a general guide only.
