General Chat / Foosball Tips: Mastering the Bank Shot Technique
« Last post by lepeshads on March 07, 2024, 11:47:12 PM »
Hey Foosball enthusiasts,

I've been working on improving my foosball game lately, and I wanted to share some tips on mastering the bank shot technique. The bank shot can be a game-changer if executed correctly, so let's dive into some pointers:

Angle and Placement: The key to a successful bank shot is understanding the angles of the foosball table. Practice hitting the ball at the right angle to deflect it off the wall and into the goal. Aim for the corners or the sides of the goal for optimal placement.

Timing and Control: Timing is crucial when attempting a bank shot. Wait for the ball to come to a stop or slow down before executing the shot. Use controlled force to ensure the ball doesn't rebound too far off the wall, giving your opponent a chance to counter.

Practice Makes Perfect: Like any other foosball technique, mastering the bank shot requires practice. Spend time honing your skills and experimenting with different angles and velocities to find what works best for you.

Anticipate Opponent Moves: Keep an eye on your opponent's defense and position your players accordingly. Look for openings and anticipate their movements to set up the perfect bank shot opportunity.

Stay Calm and Focused: In the heat of the game, it's easy to get flustered and rush your shots. Stay calm, focus on your technique, and execute the bank shot with confidence.

I hope these tips help elevate your foosball game and lead to some epic bank shot goals. Feel free to share your own insights and experiences with the bank shot technique!

Happy foosing!

General Chat / Any advice

Hi all,
I've recently purchased a foosball table for my family and the kids have requested that I paint the players.  Just wondering if anyone has experience with this and is willing to provide some recommendations?  I imagine paint could easily chip off during game play if not done correctly.  The players are Garlando plastic fused onto the rods.  Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

So asking if you want to check out our Raleigh NC Tornado tournament streaming and past videos
Check out YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/@RaleighAreaFoosball doodle jump

So 28 players have subscribed to my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/@RaleighAreaFoosball
still need 22 to subscribe it is free and hopefully, I can get 50 people if so then I can live stream to YouTube they require 50 subscribers before you can live stream
Twitch is what I have to use until then and then I have to manually upload to YouTube which takes a long time
Twitch only keeps videos for 7 days but YouTube has no time limit
Please subscribe it is FREE

Rules Questions / Re: Dead Ball rule
« Last post by bolt115 on February 27, 2024, 10:52:15 AM »
Seems like a good plan,   how did it go?   Rules similar to  ITSS are more common so i am guessing that is how you are playing? Though no reason you can't have a 2nd tourny with your preferred rules.

Only one touch per rod, if the ball is stopped/controlled it must hit the wall before being advanced via a pass or shot
No passing is allowed along the same bar or any lateral moves such as push or pull shots are allowed
If the ball is pinned it is re-served (thrown down the middle to hit the back wall in doubles or restarted from defense in singles)
In singles when shooting from defense, lifting of the midfield or forward men is not allowed

Yes it is legal in ITSF rules.  Just look up a few matches on youtube.com  and you will see people that shoot a "pull" shot which is exactly what you describe.  That does not make you wrong just different rules.  Maybe explain how you play and alternate which rules you are playing by?  I would equate to boxing vs kick boxing...the playing environment is the same but a significant rules difference.

Thank You for your answer,
as we are going to have the annual tournament in the office, i'd like to approach the problem like this, once all participants are confirmed, i'd create a poll to vote on which style to play with.
Italian Style, ITSF with pull shoots and hooks, snakes shoot, stop and shoot and so on, so that at least during the tournament it's clear what is allowed and what not, what do you think?

Rules Questions / Dead Ball rule
« Last post by levisn1 on February 22, 2024, 09:30:22 AM »
In the office we have a foosball table Pro Champion by Garlando. Is it legal for somebody to control the ball and make it stop within the reach of one of his players in defense or in attack and then pause, and then all of the sudden drag the ball one side and shoot..this in the Italian foosball style is illegal, but i understand being in the office everyone wants to play with their rules and beliefs, but i'm wondering if this was an illegal even for ITSF rules.

I only found this about dead ball:
8.2 If the ball is declared dead between the goal and five-man rods, it shall be put back into play at the two-man rod nearest the spot of the dead ball.

Thank You
