Shelti Pro Foos I Foosball Table

Shelti Foosball Table

Shelti-logo-3Shelti is the relatively new table manufacturer. The company was been established with help of the investors, and including the top executives from the Valley Recreation Products that is the mastermind behind the Tornado and the Dynamo foosball table. Company preceded Shelti is making the game tables for more than 50 years, as well as they released the first Shelti foosball table just after launching the new company in the year of 2001.  The Shelti aspires in producing most ‘playable’ table. 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 from early days with the older European style of characteristics. The cabinetry is of the best standard, and also they have innovative designs. The Shelti is probably an only company having enlarged Shelti foosball man’s toe, as well as they have enhanced ball, man, and surface for the greater control capabilities. They’re very stable and sturdy, without being very heavy and expensive as the solid 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 of the homes.

Shelti Pro FoosII Deluxe Foosball Table

The big part of what makes any of the Shelti foosball table durable will be the thickness of this 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 FoosII Deluxe has 1-1/2inch thick if cabinet. Deluxe weighs over 235lbs that gives this a kind of the heaviness that can last for long. The table priced in the range will be made with the quality from top to bottom, as well as Foos II is no exception. ABS constructed men also are automotive grade as well as are computer tested at the ball speeds above 100mph with Shelti foosball. The translation: they are not going to break, and no matter how much hard you play. Machine’s stainless hollow rods, as well as naturally lubricated bushings, are made to last. Mahogany Laminate exterior also 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. Generally, USA made tables also have the higher quality. The feature that I look for in the higher priced of the table is the counterbalanced men. Some do not have such feature, like Tornado Sport. For the intermediate and the advanced level players, the feature is a must. This allows the players to keep men horizontal to its surface, so the ball will go through very cleanly. The feature is not made equal among the tables. 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 with Shelti foosball.
