Slate vs Artificial slate when jumping

Hello everyone. I have a question about my Clifton table. I know its cheap and has a ton of limitations but its what I have currently. I took 10 yrs off of shooting pool but got back into it last year. Having a blast and learning a ton but one thing eludes me (Jumping). This Clifton has an artificial slate and I was wondering if its possible to even jump on it. When I began my "comeback" I noticed I was breaking with an elevated cue. Didn't seem to have any problems with that until I went into a bar with real slate. Then, I couldn't keep the cue ball on the table. This is when I began to wonder if the artificial was giving or absorbing. I really need to work on my jump game and getting another table just isn't going to happen this winter. Any insight? I'd appreciate ANY input. Thanks.
