General Chat / What year is this T3000?
« Last post by massination on May 01, 2018, 02:44:20 PM »
I bought a T3000 from a local bar going out of business, serial number 207646. I'm trying to figure out what year it was made, just out of curiosity. I called Valley Dynamo and they couldn't tell me.

Things to note:
Its the old style men
Wooden handles
Side strips are white (not clear)
Score markers are the yellow plastic ones

I can get a pic if it helps, but it looks the exact same as the new ones, but with those details above.

Thanks for the help!

Flix Libero.

It's very expensive and I'm not sure about importing them to the US (if that's where you're located).  However, the quality is very good and it plays similar to the other German tournament tables (Leonhart, Ulrich, Lehmacher, etc).

I run a professional entertainment company and we used to subcontract table games including foosball tables from other companies but now ready to buy them ourselves. Foosball is tricky bc they are big and hard to transport without taking apart which isn't practical for our needs.

Are there full size tables that are built to easily transport? Either foldable, or quick to take apart and put together often?

I don't shoot the snake shot much.  I mainly practice my snake shot so I can defend against the snake.  The shot is a lot less physical than a pull shot is.  If you are going to learn to use the snake, you might as well learn to shoot a front pin too. 

To master the front pin shot you need to learn delivery.  Set the ball up in the middle of the goal with defenders split.  Practice circling the ball then delivering the ball straight into the goal.  Practice circling the ball in both directions.  As you get better knocking the ball between defenders tighten the defense.  Make sure you switch from standard defense to reverse standard defense.  When you can knock the ball in at will, splitting defenders, set up in front of the push and pull side goal, then just knock the ball in until you have the motion perfect.

The snake depends a lot on delivery too.  Practice delivery until you can hit the straight in against tight defenses.  Practice splitting defenses straight in against standard and reverse standard defenses.  Once you can deliver the ball into the goal perfectly, add practice moving the ball then shooting.  Delivery is key though.  Practice knocking the ball into the goal exactly the way you want it to go.  Set up over the goal and practice knocking the ball in until you can get an almost perfect delivery every time you shoot the ball.
Any thoughts on making Anatomy of a Snake shot? I really don't use a pull/push, I just mess around with it now and then for fun.

There is a lot of information about pull shots.  Make sure you try out the different techniques for training your shots.  The training exercises are not lessons on how to shoot shots, they are designed to improve your shots.  During a training exercise you should focus on one aspect of your shot.  Focus on what you are doing right and on the exercise.  Later you can go back and try some pull shots to see the improvement.   All the training is low impact, eye-hand coordination and conditioning your senses.  This kind of training has low risk for injury.  Also this kind of training has a very high ceiling.  The amount of improvement you can make to your shots over time is amazing.
I downloaded your ebook. Wow, lot of info. Nice job!

Got a table getting better at it, was really good back in the early 2000's... but not having much fun beating my kid, he is eager to learn and we have made good progress but looking for more players near me, I'm not a pro by any means or amateur for that matter but looking forward to getting better at it. Any places that you guys might know off. I know is a long shot, since the sport seems to be dead around here, the bars that had tournaments at one point are closed.
