Overview of the Foosball Foos Shot:
A "Foos" is when you block your opponent's shot or pass and kick it back in their own goal. This is also known as a "stuff" because you actually stuff the ball and kick it back into the opponent's goal. The foos shot typically occurs with your 3 rod offensive bar, but it can also be attempted from the 5 bar. We recommend always attempting to foos your opponent with your 3 bar because it could result in a potential score and doesn't make your defense suffer if you perform it correctly. Just make sure you aren't swining your foosball man's toe too high and allowing the ball to go under your toe if you don't time it properly. This shot is all about timing and having the proper technique in order to swing your rod at the ball just as it is coming your way.
Foosball Foos Shot Level of Difficulty:
With less experienced or slower foosball players you can simply follow them as they pass the ball back and forth on their defense and wait for them to take a shot. With more experienced or veteran foosball players, you will need to guess which hole they will try to shoot and try to predict their timing of when they will move to the proper position in order to take the shot. Some players know how to shoot angles that make this process more complicated because you will need to align yourself in front of them for either a straight shot or the possible angle shot. One thing about experienced players is that you can set up your 5 bar and other defensive bars to block certain holes so you essentially force them to pick the open holes. This allows you to know roughly where they will be shooting from and will make it easier to attempt the 3 bar foos shot.
