Shelti Foos 400
« on: August 14, 2017, 09:57:38 PM »
Hi everyone, new here.  Looking at a used Shelti Foos 400 that is in very good condition.  I only found one review by Snake on here about a year ago.  Cost is $200.  Anyone have an opinion on this table at that price?  Any other info on how it plays?  Thanks.

Stay away I think you would be disappointed in that table. It plays nothing like a Tornado, very dead walls and playing surface. I wouldn't buy it. My 2 cents

While it plays different than a Tornado, it's a very solidly constructed table. The ball still rolls true, and you can learn a lot on it.

$200 is a solid deal IMO.

How it plays:

- It's grippier, so pins are easier, and it's a slower playing table

- The sides of the foot on the men are narrower, so it's harder to tic tac

- The front/back faces of the foot on the men are wider, so it's easier to defend, and to do kick shots. It also changes zones and deadbar regions due to this.

- Not much else is different.

Oh yeah and it's virtually impossible to execute a rollover on don't forget that one. If you do play local DYP Tornado tourneys this table will completely throw your timing off. Go over to the SPAM FILTER and see what they have to say,, it will be a comical thread. I would buy a warrior way before a shelti.

Thank you. Found a Warrior an hour and half away for $300.  Looks to be in like new condition.  Thoughts on that price?
