Never heard of them. Had to google. Looks like a tornado type play style....not much control, just fast. Seems most sites have it on sale for 2 instead of 3 thousand. I am a  fan of the french style..light rods, cork balls with more control.  If you have been playing in the US then most bars have the tornado (and probably Amish) type playing style.

I'll get some video when I go back for the one year warranty follow up..lol.
I spoke to the owner and he's been playing the crap out of it. Said the rods have really loosened up in the bearing guides since the installation.

General Chat / FREIGHT DAMAGED TORNADO T-3000 COIN-OP IN RICHMOND $500

Hey, guys.  If there is anyone near Richmond, VA, that is looking for a solid table, there is a company selling a freight damaged Tornado T-3000 coin operated foosball table for $500.  I bought one yesterday and am in the process of restoring it.  I've copied the CRAIGSLIST listing in case anyone is interested.

https://richmond.craigslist.org/tag/6179735893.html

The one I bought was in pretty good shape, just some torn laminate in a couple of places.  I also have to repair a few internal parts.  Nothing major though.  Between the 26 roll pins, a bumper, some trim to hide the laminate tears, and the internal parts replacement, it'll probably cost $100 to fix everything.  The table also included non-standard, round bearing nuts; they seem to work but were harder to put on.

Chuck, the owner of the business, buys freight at auctions and said he sells a lot of Garlando tables.  If interested in a particular table, let him know.  He said he tries to sell his products for about half of retail.

General Chat / Re: How to replace player on rod
« Last post by eamez on June 15, 2017, 12:33:51 PM »
There are some similarities but they are vastly too different to be an easy swap.  I think i could open up the RP men to accommodate the wider Italian rod.  Or i could swap out the whole assembly and place the RP assembly.  The only thing is that on the inner rod, the RP goes through the cabinet where as my italian table (like bonzini) it does not.  The RP inner rod is also much thinner than the Italian rod. 

So for now, I have a spare RP 5 man that I might turn into a coat rack.



The spacing between the men and height of the men's feet from the table is pretty similar so you could potentially make a Frankentable with some effort.

Not a shot I would spend any time learning but,,, I do see Tony Spredeman use the flippy once in a while if he catches you leaving a straight open when he sets up his roller  :o

The telescoping rod on an italian table is bigger than the rene pierre (which is 14mm) so the bonzini/rene pierre man will not work on the italian rod as a direct swap.
