best foosball tables under 500$
We are ascending towards really high quality. You will have to excuse me for breaking out of estimated budget sometimes. A proper title would actually be ‘best foosball table for ~$500’.
Many manufacturers recognized and tried to cover the nieche of cheaper tables, but their products seemingly never fit in $500 limit. By adding a few features here and there most manufacturers try to squeze just a bit more value out of your potential purchase, at least that’s my experience. As a result, most of the tables for less than $500 are usually much worse than their counterparts for ~$550 (see Warrior Professional, the only deal, where you get tournament quality table for less than $600)
My deep belief is that unless you’re gonna practice for a tournament, you don’t really need a Tornado table (people were still able to make calls before there was iPhone). Personally, I’ve never touched a Tornado or a Bonzini table untill attending some local tournaments, yet still loved playing the game in bars and never felt any sort of frustration or problems with the gameplay.
A simple example of cheaper alternative to Tornado – Warrior tables (sometimes Carrom). Since the players legs on them have identical shape to those of Tornado, it allows for almost the same gameplay (I’d even argue it’s better for pinshots). I’m sure you get the idea.
Correct logic:’I need a table to play foosball’.
Wrong logic:’I need the best Tornado table to play foosball’.
