    Default Italian Slate vs Chinese

    Hi,

    I have a old Alliance 12 ft table with italian slate. I've bought another table (Shender prince) that has chinese slate i suppose.
    Does anybody knows if there is a difference? Thickness, weight, quality?

    How about a Star table?

    Thanks!
