Shelti Foosball Table

Shelti Pro Foos I Foosball Table

Shelti is the relatively new table manufacturer. The company has been established with help of the investors, and including the top executives from the Valley Recreation Products which is the mastermind behind the Tornado and the Dynamo foosball tableThe Shelti aspires in producing most ‘playable’ tables. Owners pined away the ‘old’ days (over 1970s) while Dynamo ruled the land and Shelti foosball was the power game. That is why they actually focus on mixing American style of the Shelti foosball table from early days with the older European style of characteristics.

Shelti-logo-3The cabinet is of the best standard and innovative designs. The Shelti is probably an only company having enlarged Shelti foosball man’s toe, but they also have enhanced ball, men and surface for the greater control capabilities. Shelti foosball table is very stable and sturdy, without being too heavy and expensive as the rest of the wood furniture foosball tables. In spite of reduced cost and weight, still many have this furniture look on them that blends very well in most homes.

SHELTI FOOSBALL TABLE REVIEWS

Shelti Pro Foos II Deluxe Foosball Table

Shelti Pro FoosII Deluxe TableThe big part of what makes any of the Shelti foosball table durable is the thickness of the cabinet. Most of the cheaper foosball tables generally tend to move at the time of play, and in a long run, it leads to the wear and tear. Shelti Pro Foos II Deluxe has 1-1/2 inch thick cabinet. Deluxe weighs over 235lbs that gives this a kind of the heaviness that can last for long. The table in this price range is made with quality from top to bottom and Foos II is no exception. ABS constructed men are an automotive grade, computer tested at the ball speeds above 100 mph. The translation: they are not going to break, and no matter how much hard you play.

Machine’s stainless hollow rods are naturally lubricated bushings, which means they are made to last. Mahogany Laminate exterior is chip resistant and 3/4″ of playfield has the thickness seen at some tables out there. The thicker playfield equals to greater durability. The Shelti tables are actually made in the USA.

The feature that I look for in the higher priced of the table is the counterbalanced men. For the intermediate and the advanced level players, this feature is a must. This feature allows the players to keep men horizontal to its surface, so the ball will go through very cleanly. Some of the tables have got counterbalanced men, however, they do not always stay on where you would like them to. With Shelti Deluxe table, one may park men in any angle in 360 degrees. It actually gives the table the professional feel.

PROS

  • Hollow steel rods
  • Durability
  • Intermediate and advanced gameplay
  • ABS constructed men

CONS

  • None that I can see

Shelti Foos 100 Foosball Table

Shelti foos 100 Foosball TableThere are better foosball tables than this Foos 100 but it is an average quality foosball table for hobby players and teens. The main downside of this foosball table is the fact that it doesn’t have counterbalanced men. I think that today that feature is one of the most important features on the foosball table market. The Shelti foosball table Foos 100 has got an upgrade with that feature and it is called the Foos 200. Besides the lack of counterbalanced men, the table has adjustable leg levelers which is great and the end ball return, which is not the best solution. I prefer side ball return.

PROS

  • Leg levelers
  • Great quality steel rods

CONS

  • No counterbalanced men
  • End ball return

Shelti Foos 200 Foosball Table

Shelti Foos 200 Foosball Table Shelti Foos 200 is the heavy duty Shelti foosball table with the 1″ thick cabinet and 215 lbs weight.

Tubular chrome rods are machine made, giving them the added strength as well as resistance with Shelti foosball. ABS constructed men are strong, as well as undergoing the extensive computer testing at which the ball speeds were above 100mph. it is a kind of the table that the intermediate players will enjoy. They may play very hard they would like to without even having to get concerned about the damage was done to table and rods.

Counterbalanced men will allow for the game to flow freely since they are kept horizontal when shooting. In that way, the shots do not get blocked by own players.  The heavy and thick table provides lots of stability even while play becomes very fast and furious. Being the intermediate player, this Shelti foosball table is what you actually want.

Leg levelers will allow this table to get adjusted over 1″ so playing surface will be level, even while the floor isn’t. The nylon bushings are naturally lubricated, giving the longevity and the smooth rod functioning and allowing the players to play as fast they want.

Shelti Pro Foos I Foosball Table

Shelti Pro Foos I Foosball TableWith Shelti Pro Foos I table, you will feel like the professional player each time ball lands on a field. The white markings on the green surface recreate the look of the real soccer field as well as allows you to easily see goal box. Bright red and black players actually pop against green color. The Shelti table will help you to enjoy all features of the commercial table without even spending much money as you have expected.

Angled feet on every player helps you to effectively strike a ball as well as put more of power behind every hit. The Shelti made new bumpers work with table to keep the players from bumping it against sides and pulling out handles and damaging the wood. Although made from the inexpensive materials, the table has a laminate wrap over the sides, which looks like the chestnut wood in Shelti foosball.

Shelti Pro Foos III Foosball Table

Shelti Pro Foos III Foosball TableShelti Pro Foos III is impressive quality foosball table which is made from heavy duty laminate wood material so it is really sturdy and durable. There isn’t one bad thing I can say about this foosball table. It has wooden handles for better grip on great quality rods which control players so you can perform advanced shots to the enemies goal. Like in other Shelti foosball tabels, these players are also ABS constructed so they are practically indestructible.  Pro Foos III has so called “Stay-in-play” surface, meaning you can’t stop the ball so easily, there aren’t any blind spots on the field. If you want to pause the game you will have to score. Another surprise this foosball table provides is specially made balls for maximum performance. Just remember, you can’t blame the ball anymore if you don’t score.

PROS

  • Great quality construction
  • Counterbalanced men
  • Side ball return
  • Stay-in-play surface

Shelti Foos 400 Foosball Table

Shelti Foos 400 Foosball TableI must say that no matter which Shelti foosball table I pick, it has a good quality. The same story is with Shelti Foos 400. The table has slightly lower quality than top foosball tables made by Shelti, but it is still really good quality. The cabinet has a melamine shell and not the laminate like those top tables but it is still a good choice. The rods are chrome-plated and provide great control over the players, which are, of course, counterbalanced. Players have that sharp foot design so you can hit the ball with maximum precision. The 3-man goalie system provides fast and intense game every time. The table has a side ball return which is a great feature, better than the end ball return.

PROS

  • Chrome-plated rods
  • Counterbalanced men
  • Sharp foot design

CONS

  • Lower quality

Shelti Foos 315 Foosball Table

Foos 315 shelti foosball tableShelti Foos 315 is a foosball table which looks like Tornado Storm II, but the Tornado table has better quality. The main thing which makes them so similar is the marble design on the 1.5inch thick MDF cabinet. The cabinet and the legs make the table look durable and sturdy which is a great thing. You don’t have to worry about the playing surface because legs are adjustable and easy to apply. The players are divided into Red and Black team. They are designed to provide ultimate control over the ball with the fact that they are counterbalanced and that they have sharp toe design. When you score you can easily grab the ball from the side ball return and continue playing. 

PROS

  • Counterbalanced men
  • Side ball return
  • Marble design
  • Great quality steel rods

CONS

  • Price
  • Quality

Shelti Rock It Foosball Table

Rock It shelti foosball tableThe lowest quality Shelti foosball table is definitely the Rock it foosball table. It is made to resemble European foosball tables because it has 1-man goalie system and it is made with less durable materials. The players are counterbalanced, but the handles which control the rods are plastic. Plastic is not good material because it can easily get slippery, I always recommend rubber handles.  The entire design looks childish and it just doesn’t work for me. I actually prefer the European game style – 1-man goalie system, but I am not sure I would be satisfied with this foosball table made from Shelti. There are far better tables than this one.

PROS

  • Side ball return
  • 1-man goalie system

CONS

  • Quality

Shelti Home Pro Foosball Table

Shelti Pro Carbon Fiber Foosball TableThe Shelti Home Pro foosball table has a sleek black cabinet design with green playing surface and players divided into Black and Red team. The rods are perfect in controlling the players because they have “Lock-on-men” system which works perfectly on counterbalanced men in this Shelti foosball table. Rods are made from triple-plating of copper, nickel, and chrome which provides them excellent design and performance. The thing I like most about this table is the side ball return. I am not a fan of the end ball return because it is more complicated to grab the ball. The quality of the table is great and you can see that by the “Top to Bottom” limited warranty.

PROS

  • Great quality construction
  • Counterbalanced men
  • Side ball return
  • Lock-on-men
  • Great quality steel rods

CONS

  • Price
