|Information about the Back-pin for Beginners||The back-pin shot was very popular during the 70s & 80s on the Dynamo and Tournament Soccer Tables. It is not a very good shot to use on the Tornado Table due to the nature of the table design. However, some players have gone to the extend of "filing" the Tornado's "men's feet" to adapt it for back-pin shot. The main reason for it's lack of popularity is it's lack of execution speed which is why it is used more on the goalie 3-men than the forward 3-men.
There are two ways of executing the back-pin: palm and wrist. I would suggest you choose one way and stick with it.
