Fireball

Post by Zico » Wed Mar 14, 2012 6:34 am

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 Table before, therefore I want to ask if its more like a Garlando or Tornado, and what I need to watch out for?

My main concern would be 3 bar spacing (similar to tornado or garlando?), and how grippy it is (for pin shots).

Thanks a lot guys!

Easy to shoot a pin on, very grippy once pinned.

Passing is a lot more like Tornado than Garlando.

It is the easiest table to adapt to IMO.

Hey Zico,

Fireball is more like a Tornado in terms of spacing and game play, its more bouncy though, especially off the walls. It's quite good for pin shots, I prefer it to Tornado for this, and don't forget bank and sling shots!

Good luck!

Like a Tornado but the bars are not as heavy.
