Rene Pierre makes some of the best foosball tables around, with a huge variety of models designed to suit any budget. The Foot is the French factory's low cost, best value option. It plays just like its more expensive siblings, but is slightly cheaper thanks to some cost-saving features.
But don't worry - the gameplay is still excellent, and perfectly suited to older children, families, and foosball fans who just want a great game. And like all Rene Pierre tables, the build quality and longevity are enviable.
It's a full-size table made of sturdy fibreboard and coated in melamine, designed in the traditional French cafe style. Broad panels are finished in an oak-style effect, with sturdy wooden legs, cross-braced for rigidity. Built specifically for flat indoor floors, the feet lack level adjusters. Scoring abacuses and side-exit ball return ports are built in, as are real metal goal mouths.
The player figures are made of metal, which is unusual at this price point, and are handpainted at the factory in their team strips. They're firmly fixed to 14mm telescopic safety rods for maximum precision during play. Ergonomically-ridged handles allow you to take complete control of your 11-a-side team, and carry them to victory!
The playfield is made of wood, which is then laminated with melamine. This offers good levels of ball speed and control, and is slightly cheaper than the linoleum playfields found on most of the Rene Pierre range. Cork balls are included with the table so you can get playing right away.
The Foot is a great option for those who want the playability and build quality of a premium Rene Pierre foosball table, but perhaps don't need some of the high-end features. It's a great value way of buying an authentic, French-made foosball table, and enjoying all the fun of this historic tabletop game.
