Is the VPI Classic Better than the Scoutmaster?

I read somewhere (don't remember where) where someone said that the Classic was not as good a table as the Scoutmaster (despite what the manufacturer says). My question is if that is correct, what are the Classic's weaker points? Maybe I am all wrong, would not be the first time.

I've had both. I can't tell you why, maybe the much better tonearm, but the Classic is a much better table to me.
