Actually on the fas tables I have played on the front pin was easier than the snake.

The small slippery black handles make it harder to get a good grip with the wrist. This is compounded by the fact that every fas I have played on have been a bit dirty an not had a smooth motion on the rods.

As i understand the 100 has thinner legs and the depth of the cabinet is about 5 cm less. This means the 200 is 20% heavier at 60kg than the 100. However the rods/pitch/goals/etc are the same. You say they both have the same feet and price. IMHO I think you should choose your garlando table on your ...

Sorry Stu, but I don't think your table is going to be popular here. The people on this forum have played on a lot of tables and we have all learnt that there are only a handful of manufacturers that actively seek player feedback. The rest just produce stuff that at a glance looks ok but are little ...

If you are used to blocky garlando with telescopic rods then your biggest difference in my opinion will be the increased weight of the rods. Tornado will seem really heavy initially.
