General Chat / Foosball in norcal
« Last post by carlyd on April 23, 2017, 11:17:00 AM »
I moved to the Grass Valley, CA area and am desperately looking for a bar with a good table. From Sacramento to Truckee- where are the good tables at? There is one at the Nevada Club in Grass Valley but it is way past it's prime, it just frustrates me to play. I know there's a good one in Chico, but that's a hike away. How am I supposed to show my skills and find a dude that's worthy enough if we can't play a game! Thank you for the suggestions!

That's normal, happens all the time on Tornado also. You just have to adjust after you shoot from the back.   :o

General Chat / Shelti - Counterbalanced 5 man bar slipping
« Last post by jradams76 on April 18, 2017, 01:12:39 PM »
I just bought a used Shelti Foosball table from someone in our neighborhood.  They had it for about 5 years and never really played it.  Well tonight me and my son played for a couple hours it was a blast.  We noticed though that both 5 man rods (black/red) would slowly start to move down.  The other rods stayed put so I was wondering do the bearings need replaced or the men on the bar need replaced?  I dont have the tools to remove the pins so I was just trying to do my own troubelshooting.  I wanted to also point out that I dont know anything about foosball maintenance but I'm learning.

Thanks for any help.

So i am seriously considering buying this table since shipping is much cheaper than i thought it would be:

http://m.ebay.com/itm/Tornado-foosball-coin-op-pool-table-FB005-/262903201756?nav=SEARCH

The seller sent me some hi res pictures and it looks to be in good condition. I did noticed there seems to be some dirt between the field and side walls, the handles look a bit dirty, and one of the bumbers is a different color.

Here is a link to the hi res pics he sent me:

Does anyone notice any potential issues I should be aware of? Anything specific I should ask the seller before I purchase? I know its a bit of a risk buying without seeing it, but the seller does have 100% on ebay.

Thanks! Any advice would be much appreciated!

Yes, he still sells used tournament tables. I purchased one from him and picked it up at the Bart-O tournament in Austin, TX this year.

I've been struggling in 5 man passing lately.  I'm getting the pass through but not catching on the 3 bar.  That and finding people to play with in Maine.

As an experienced fooser, what's the most pressing problem you have right now?

Well, I learned that Big Daddy's in Pueblo is now called Side Pockets, same phone number. I called them and when I asked the woman who answered the phone if they have a foosball table she hung up on me! I called back several times to ask HUH?, but all I could get was a voice mail. Apparently they hate foosball players and don't want our business. What a way to run a sports bar.

After searching a bit more on the site, ive gathered that the warrior, twister, and sport are all entry level models with thinner walls and no counterbalanced men. Next level up would be cyclones and storms, which i gather last forever but are hard to maintain/upgrade? Then come the tournament and commercial models which are built like aircraft.

I took a look at the sport today and have to say im a bit disappointed. It doesnt feel right and is still expensive as hell. If i can get a coin op shipped to me for under $1k total id rather just do that.
