Re: Slick-Glass FAS

My first table was a FAS, and I didn't really have a problem on it with Garlando Magic balls (those around 2005-2007?). My table surface was quite clean and the Magic Balls were very sticky on it, its where I learned Euro-to-fakey. I found the slightest bit of grease will make the surface slippery, ...

Re: Fireball WCS

Any Brits this year? In Kuala Lumpur 31st Oct - Nov 3rd.

I've heard the Malaysians are trying to arrange flights and hotel deals to make it more affordable, as I remember their team was sponsored by AirAsia last year.

Bank shot

Just want to ask for advice on bank shots, I've been practicing at home and its very inconsistent. I also find it quite hard to get the sharp angle from the middle on the 2 bar.

Thanks guys! I would love to bank like Dave Oates, Simon, etc!

Re: Fireball WCS live streams

Tom Yore won OS, although the Kuwaitis did give him a run for his money. Both 2nd and 3rd place are from Kuwait in fact. Roman Benz from Austria was 4th.
And Simon does indeed have a mohawk.

Re: shanghai open april

Dave Z, its the truth, although not common I think. For this one in Shenzhen, they had a foreign English teacher who also taught PE, and he happens to play foos. The key is they got space, and this was always the case but they didn't have a quality table, so they can't be competitive. But now with F...

Re: shanghai open april

No clue what you are on about Dan! I don't think I played singles for Catz I until my fourth year~~ Dave, its quite impressive actually, the kids actually take foosball as their core subject during P.E (instead of the more common chocie of basketball or football), so that's all they do during and af...

Fireball

Been a few years since I've been on this forum, hi everyone! :D I am now located in Hong Kong with much less foos, however very recently I bought a Tornado and thought I can try to play foos in Asia. I am planning to go to this Fireball Tournament in Shanghai, and I've never played on a Fireball Tab...
