Neil has nipped to Pinball Republic to check his and he said he can see visible high impacts on the same spot after mylar on his! Luckily his not chipping yet
Balls were changed when it arrived
But what do the balls look like now, any damage?
Pinside owners thread showed someone with a cracked ball after 200 plays, dont know if its an original Stern ball though. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/t...owners-club-rock-aliens/page/139#post-7708703
That’s the guide not the ramp so it’s height doesn’t affect the height the ball drops from after launch.In the first picture, of the heavily damaged playfield, the flat metal rail for the ball entry seems to have a gap where it's standing off the playfield. I think I can see its own shadow from lighting behind it, with a brighter line where light is shining through a gap. If it's a combined ball entry/orbit rail, the greater height could've seen the ball landing further up the playfield.
Lots of pins have Mylar already in various high wear places. I’m guessing quite a few (like myself) only add Mylar themselves once an issue is highlighted (as above). There’s also definitely people that add Mylar themselves as a precaution - it’s all down to the individual reallyA question from a newbie please - a few people seem to have applied mylar in ordinary course to a new playfield (ahead of knowing about this issue), do most owners do that with NIB purchases and, if so, is it just on high risk areas? Sorry in advance if this is off topic.
Shouldn’t be any different whether U buy one or 100
