When you go to buy the Tornado Sport foosball table, you should be aware of its quality already. If you have ever used one, you’ll notice how smooth the games are and how bright the matches can be. The fact that it’s so easy to control the players allows for a very enterprising playing style, reinforced by the ease in which you can move the players around.

More importantly, though, this comes with one of the sturdiest build qualities around. It feels really easy to use, which should give you plenty of confidence when you start taking on more ambitious players. The main challenge with this table is the fact that it’s so hard to assemble. It’s sometimes common issue with Tornado tables that the assembly really can be a pain. Be sure to get someone to help you with the set-up, because assembling this table is a lot more challenging than it should be. At a price range of $1100, though, assembly issues might be expected.

However, what you are left with in the end is a very impressive, studious style of equipment. It’s much more likely to handle constant usage due to the good quality of the materials used and the faster, simpler rod spins. The sturdy build quality also helps to keep the table nice and level, stopping anyone from feeling as if they are shooting up or downhill!

With that in mind, then, it’s important to consider the Tornado Sport as a potential purchase. It might not be for those who hate assembly, but it’s a very well-regarded table with good reason. Keep that in mind, as it’s a foosball table that you can very quickly grow to love using.

Summary Verdict

Though it might not be a professionally certified table, professionals can easily enjoy a good game on the Tornado Sport. However, the lack of counterbalancing in the players is a bit of a let-down, as is the general assembly. While it might have some problems, though, we would hesitate to denigrate the Tornado Sport too much.

If counterbalancing is a big thing for you, though, you might not quite have the time and patience that you would hope for with this. Add in the fact that it’s a bit of a challenge to put together, too, and you might want to look for something a bit more user-friendly. Overall, though, it’s a fine table for various purposes and pursuits.

  • Strong Tornado style players included for both sides in their classic Tornado style.
  • All players are counterbalanced to help make sure performance is fair.
  • Solid, non-sloped surface means that it comes down to skill, not geography.
  • Impressive solid chrome steel rods that come with natural, solid wood handles
  • 3-goalie system makes it easy for you to have ambitious and exciting games.
  • Makes use of the famous split bearing system that Tornado tables are so well-known for.
  • Designed in an intoxicating Victorian Cheery laminated finish, with a 1 ½” thick cabinet.
  • Adjustable leg levelers for total control on the size of the table that you wish to have.
  • 56” L x 30” W x 36” H in size, with a weight of 225-pounds.

Suitable for use at home, the Tornado Elite is a fine foosball table for gamers who enjoy a more luxurious style of play. The rich and decorated finish of the table is one thing: the attention to detail on the overall design is another. The impressive dual ball returns mixed in with those durable heavy gauge rods allows for total control over the pace and style of place.

So, too, does the fact that it comes with some very impressive and professional finishes elsewhere. The patented Tornado split bearings are a fine choice, really adding to the pace of the play. So, too, do the accurate, easy to move and use gauge rods. This, factored in with their solid non-slip wooden handles, allows for eloquence and crispness with every shot that you take. If you want a table that can keep the games fair and the scores high, this is probably one of the best places for you to start.

It’s not only that, but you should find that the Tornado Elite offers you the kind of skill and eloquence that you would have expected. Performance is a very important thing, and this delivers a high level of performance due to the slick surface, the smooth layout of the table and the strong build quality. If you were to complain about something, it would be the mild nightmare that comes from building it up. Still, for the price range of around $1900, it’s just an issue you might need to accept.

This is a table that will test the patience of those who don’t like doing a lot of building. It’s quite an annoying table to set up in, in truth. For that reason, you might find it a bit beyond your normal capacity if you are not someone who is mechanically minded. Once you get it built, though, the Tornado Elite foosball table certainly lives up to such a lofty and ambitious name.

Summary Verdict

While the assembly can be a bit of a nightmare, which is not what you want, everything else falls into place. If you are someone who has little patience for assembly, then this might manage to test your patience. If you can get used to the set-up quirks, though, you will be left with a broadly tournament standard table that really does the job that you would want, need and expect in a short space of time.
