How to Choose Shuffleboard Powder:
Shuffleboard powder is available in different varieties. If you are a beginner, it can be quite confusing to choose the Shuffleboard powder, which is best for your game.
Let’s see if I can help you find the perfect powder for your table, here is what you need to ask yourself when choosing shuffleboard powder:
Shuffleboard powder is commonly categorized by speed; it comes in a speed range from slow to super-fast. Every manufacturer has a different system for classifying speed; some do it by a number while others do it by color. However, most popular brands use a combination of number and color to differentiate the different speeds of Shuffleboard powder.
Sun-Glo categorizes its products on a speed of 1 -7, where 1 is the fastest and 7 is the slowest.
On the other hand, Triple Crown categorizes its products on speed as well as color. The white Ice is the fastest, followed by brown and yellow. Within the colors, there are powders of three numbers: I, II, and III, with I being the slowest and III being the fastest.
The speed you want is related to the length of your table, let’s look at that now.
The standard or regulation size Shuffleboard table is 20 inches wide and 22 feet in length. However, many different variations are available. The most common sizes of shuffleboard tables are:
Small Shuffleboard Tables
Small Shuffleboard tables range from 9 feet to 12 feet in length, the smallest being 9 feet long and 20 inches wide. Small-sized tables are preferred by home-owners because they can fit inside small spaces. They are preferred by beginners; however, they are nothing to laugh at!

Mid-sized Shuffleboard Tables
Medium-sized Shuffleboard tables are between the length of 14 and 18 feet. These tables are preferred for public settings such as bars, sports lounges, and recreation centers. Mid-sized tables are the most common since they are a perfect balance between the small and large tables.

Full-size Shuffleboard Tables

If you have a small-sized shuffleboard table than you should choose Shuffleboard powder which gives you the slowest speed. If you use fast powders on a small board, your puck will go out of control. Since the size of the board is small, the speed should be less.
If you have mid-sized Shuffleboard, than you should buy a medium-fast or fast Shuffleboard powder. If you are purchasing Sun-Glo than a speed 3-4 would be ideal for mid-sized tables.
If you have a full-size table, then you should buy a fast or super-fast powder. If you are purchasing Sun-Glo than powders 2, 1.5, and 1 will be ideal for regulation sized tables.
Finally, you should remember the rule of thumb when purchasing powders, it is: the length of the table is directly proportional to the speed of the dust. The bigger the table, the faster your powder should be!
