Foosball Replacement Telescopic Rods
The three types of Foosball Rods
The Foosball rods, are the metal bars that you hold and have the men attached too. There are three main types of foosball rods. These are:
Solid Foosball Rod
The Solid Foosball Rod is a solid metal bar, as you can imagine, this is more expensive that the hollow rods. These rods should last a lifetime, if they are properly maintained, as they are incredibly hard to bend
Hollow Foosball Bars
These bars are very similar to the solid bar, other than they are obviously hollow. If too much pressure is put onto these bars the may bend or buckle. If this happens they need to be straightened, or replacement rod bought to replace the damaged ones.
Telescopic Foosball Rods
Both the hollow and the solid rods above, come out of the other side of the table as you push them. Telescopic rods do not do this. They are hollow like the hollow rod, but they are made out of a number of slightly narrower individual sections. When the rod is pushed or pulled the rod either expands or contracts. It is fixed to one side of the table, so that end never moves.
This type of rod is considered much safer for the home
This type of rod, because of its moving parts is far less strong than the Solid rod, and nor even sturdy as the hollow rod. It is difficult to bend this type of rod back into its original form, if it is bent, due to the telescopic nature.
