HM 2000 purchase no ball return
« on: April 04, 2018, 10:25:40 AM »
Hi I am looking at changing out my old imperial butcher block table with a Tornado HM 2000 for $100. The table looks good, playing surface has no blemishes and rods have no rust.

Couple of issues.

This thing has no ball returns. You just pull the ball out of the goal. I would like to build some. Looks like some other folks kind of did the same with warrior products and all. Any helpful hints here would be great.

This is just for rec use with me and the kids (who are now 20 LOL) Does anybody play 10 point games on tornado's or are they all 5. Being older it takes a bit to warm up.

Going from 1 goalie to 3 will be interesting too

Thanks

$100 is an incredible price! Bought mine for $900 about 20 years ago and she looks as good as new. I would never part with it for that much. The balls returning on the sides are the only draw back.

What is the age of the t2000? My father in-law actually has a 78ish tornado home model with the banked corners( 1 goalie ), but it still has the ramps that put the ball out to one side. We have a 10 point score system too. We play it that way, but it can seem like a marathon. Yea 100 bucks is a steal!
