Tornado Twister
« on: January 27, 2019, 01:32:20 AM »
I'm looking at a Tornado Twister on Craigslist.  Asking price for this one owner table is $700 OBO.  What is a table like this in good shape worth?

I would think you could get a higher end used table for $700.....a twister for the kids to play on under $300 i would think.  I know new they are a lot more new but on craigslist you can get a arcade quality table for that money, the tornado coin ops have not changed much in over 30 years so even a 20 year old arcade table in good shape is a better option than twister.

FYI,

         If you post your general location there may be someone on here looking to sell a good table...

Thanks for the advice.  I'm in the Madison, WI area.  It's for my daughter's birthday since she has really taken to foosball.  My wife and I will play as well...a great family game.  My budget is around $300-$400 but if the right deal presents itself, I'll go a bit higher.  I see a Storm II in my area for $875, the Twister I mentioned for $700, a Sport for $800 and an Elite for $1500.  Of course there are non-Tornado brands out there (Warrior Pro, American Gladiator, Kick) that I could buy new and put together in the family room (man cave during football season) rather than moving a used one.  Lots to consider.  Thanks again for your earlier advice.

I've had a Twister, and I've owned several coin-op tables. I've never owned a warrior table, but I would roll the dice and go with a warrior of them before I went with a twister or whirlwind Tornado model.

I would personally get a Cyclone II and up for Tornado. I'm about to purchase a used Cyclone II in Canada for $500 CAD which is about $380 USD. The prices you listed is towards the higher side.

I ended up with a new Warrior Pro.  It was delivered to my house in three heavy boxes.  It was a breeze to put together which was a plus because moving a used one into our basement would have been a nightmare.  Thank you to those that provided feedback and advice.  Much appreciated.
