Can anyone see a "scoop protector request" option in the Case Type field as per the instructions on the JJP site for requesting a scoop?
No, it's not there, I just wrote ' scoop protector request ' in the brief description box, then a little more in the comments box below specifically asking for the Cliffy protectors.

I have to say it does play better and look better with the Cliffy's. I've made more sim shots on purpose ( admittedly still a low % of attempts ) and can hit the phone scoop much easier. I should say that I also replaced the rubbers around the 2 scoops, I fitted 3/8" OD mini post rubbers to the sim posts ( machine comes with 7/16" fitted ) so they are slightly smaller giving slightly more room to make the shot, and replaced the silicone post sleeves with standard black rubber sleeves at the phone scoop. The combination of the cliffys and the rubber posts at the phone scoop has significantly lowered the number of airballs from that area.

Nice one Kev. There's a little tab that goes under the playfield on the front of the sim hole, I found that a bit loose on mine, i.e. it didn't pull the front edge down tight to the playfield. I bent mine up slightly before fitting to pull the cliffy front edge down better. Hope that makes sense.

I ordered a couple of sets of ramp cliffys for my TOMs, he said they'd be 6-7 weeks, so sometime in June. Good job I'm in no hurry.

There seem to have been a few Dialed In Pins come up for sale or trade on the forum recently. It's great news for me as I'm looking to pick one up in the future, but just wondering why such a highly rated game seems to be being moved on in a relatively short space of time? I realise each owner has their own reasons for selling/trading, but does this Pin not have staying power?

I have put my DI up for sale.

In my opinion it is the best game produced by anyone since Bally/ Williams closed down. It is streets ahead of all the modern Sterns that I have played, and indeed every Stern, Data East or Sega game I have played.

I grew up with and gravitate towards relatively short ball-time games that were designed to sit in arcades, operating alongside numerous other machines competing for your coins. In the 80s could go in with a quid and play 10 totally different types of machines. In the old days arcades were awash with weird one-off cabinets and technologies. Atari vector graphics, EM rifle games, table football, air hockeys, video games with all manner of controls (tracker balls, rotary knobs, periscopes, levers, foot pedals) .... .......Modern pinballs in contrast are designed for home use and have much deeper rules and longer game times that intimidate some casual players

I have the space for a dozen pinballs and I can buy several system 11s and/ or a loads of Bally SS tables for the cost of a single modern Stern or JJP.

Maybe because it doesn't have a theme/music/nostalgia that tugs at the heart strings?

Fun game but easier to let go and move on than many of the old favourites.

Also a lot came into the UK, so the usual supply/demand stuff.

Agree with @DRD best game I have played since the addams was first released. Mine won't be going soon as I haven't had that much time to play it yet !

It's a crap load of cash to tie up in one machine. It is simply a great machine but if you're wanting something else then it's easy to cull just the one to pay for it rather than 3 others...

Replay is bang in the money there is so many out there that’s why it seem a lot come up for sale bit like gb when that came out and sold well
It’s a bit sad that the popular titles are worth less on the second hand market than the rate lesser titles
