But is this foosball table worth the hype? In this review, I’m going to talk more about the Tornado Classic foosball table to give you an idea of whether this table is really worth it or not.
Tornado Classic Foosball Table Design, Parts, Surface, Levelling & Finish
When it comes to the overall make and look, I can say that the Tornado Classic is truly the best. First, it has a durable construction and features a unique contemporary look. I’m not really surprised at this one because I know quite well that Tornado follows strict standards when it comes to the quality of their products. This table has a classic black cabinet with black legs that means it will go well with just about any interior design. You can have it in your living room, basement, etc. As for the players, they come in yellow and black which is nice to look at.
As for the surface of the foosball table, it’s pretty solid at 3-4 inches thick. In fact, it’s thicker compared to most foosball tables I know. At this thickness, you can be sure that the table will remain level at all times. Of course, it’s sturdier as well and could last for a long time. The solid surface allows the player to make fast shots, which is actually one feature that I like about Tornado tables.
The Tornado Classic Foosball Table can be leveled easily since it comes with adjustable leg levelers. These levelers come with a large footprint, which you will not find in other foosball tables. This foosball table comes in an enormous size and is difficult to move. Thus, you can enjoy an even and leveled playing surface.
- Handles and Rods
The Tornado Classic has chrome-plated rods that look elegant. As for the handles, they are made of wood which makes it easy for the players to grip. The chrome rods allow the players to move quickly since they are hollowed. Also, they are not prone to warping, unlike the other hollow rods I have seen.
- Foosball Men
The players are counterbalanced and that means it’s easy to make a long-distance shot without the men blocking the ball. I know a lot of cheaper foosball tables where the players are not counterbalanced. I must say these are only good for amateur and beginners who are not that serious about the game.
The cabinet of the Tornado Classic is 1-1/2 inches thick and has a laminated finish. Its field has a 3-colored logo that’s around ¾ inch and is laminated. The table’s overall construction allows for better durability and added rigidity. I can definitely say that this foosball table has excellent craftsmanship.
