    I just was speaking with Terry on another subject and brought up the glass question only to discover that he has 90 sheets on the shelf!

    I'm gonna get some for sure.

    It also helps that Terry is such an asset to the pinball community.

    I'm tempted to drive out there and grab a piece just so I can compare it to my PDI glass. I just wish it wasn't so damn expensive.

    If he has it, I hope Jen shipped mine that's paid for!

    I was under the impression that invisiglass was supposed to be a lot cheaper than PDI? Jack's price on pinballsales.com would indicate this is not true...

    IIRC, Jack originally indicated that it would cost significantly less than PDI glass. Unfortunately, this didn't end up being the case. As a result, the stuff would have to perform better than PDI glass in order for me to stop buying Joey's product. The fact that the PDI glass is more readily available is a non-factor for me. I don't mind waiting longer if I have to.

    At 3 bills a sheet I know why they call it invisiglass, I can't see me buying any.

    I was hoping Jack would have the stuff for a c note or less, I would like to get 10 sheets but for 3K I could get a game.
    I saw a vid of this stuff and you could still see the DMD reflection.
    At this price point I will stick with the Glare Guards.

    Its about a lot more than the DMD reflection Eric. If you ever make it over here you can check a few sheets of the PDI glass out yourself and see what you think. It's pretty cool stuff. Just don't be surprised when you see Kim's DMD guards on all of my pins, even the ones with the PDI glass.

    I would like to see this stuff in person, how scratch resistant is it?
    The wife dusted 8 of my games with her wedding ring spun on her finger and it cost me 2 bills to replace the glass, I would have had a colorectal hemmorage if it had been 8 sheets of this stuff.

    Well, in my experience it certainly doesn't seem to be particularly sensitive to scratching. As I've indicated in prior posts, I've had probably a dozen airballs strike the PDI glass on my pins and it has never left a mark.

    I'm certainly not going to say that it would stand up to your wife's wedding ring, but then again, neither will regular glass (as you know)!

    I have a scratch on the PDI glass on my TZ. I don't know how it got there, but someone obviously put something on the glass that they shouldn't have. Fortunately, I was able to flip the glass around so that the scratch is near the top of the playfield. You can't really notice it unless you really look closely.

    Really?!?!? Do we really need another active thread on glass? This is the third one that is on the first two pages. I understand if a person searchs and cannot find an old article but these are current threads.

    Actually I posted this because I am sure there are other people local to Terry that might appreciate knowing that the glass is on the shelf where you can simply go get it as I will do.

    I figured the rest of the opinions had already been debated.

    For me I don't care about the rest. Patience is not a virtue of mine so I was happy to learn that Terry laid out a pile of cash to ultimately make the glass deal easier for me.

    Well done Terry.

    It was looking at Tatmans PDI glass in his Medieval Madness that made it a must have item. The glass is truly amazing. It's gonna cost a fortune to switch over. Worth it for sure to me based on what I saw.

    One of the negatives with there being so much activity on Pinside these days is that it can be tough to keep up with all the threads. I feel like I'm on the site constantly, and yet there are still some that slip through the cracks.

    I was thinking the same thing. Two months ago I could keep up checking in one a day. Now it is near impossible.

    I picked up 5 sheets today from Terry looks great with no purple tint. Will post pics tonight. I have PDI glass so can get a good idea on this glass. Terry had a sheet in a sopranos and it looked as good as PDI. Will do some side by side tonight.

    Indeed. PDI looks like the way to go!

    I think two panes on top of each other plus shadows are creating a bit of an optical illusion, can you take a pic with a quarter or something for scale next to the logo?

    Better yet... Take a picture of it installed on a machine.

    I agree, if I can see the logo AT ALL when installed it is a deal breaker and I will stick with PDI even if Invisiglass has better performance (I am guessing any difference will not be readily perceptible).

    $300 for a sheet. That's nuts. C'mon.

    So the tempered glass comes in at $30-45 each and the invisa technology labor/material is $250-270. Something wrong with this. There must be a huge profit margin on this one.

    So my question is, is the stuff inside the glass material or sprayed on the glass and easily scratched ?

    I'll stick with what I have or a glare guard.

    At least make the logo small and place it so the lock down bar covers it. Wow... that sux!! So how many new WOZ owners are going to put PDI on their pins instead??

    Agreed. Whenever I order glass I ask for it to be made with no watermark or "bug" as some of them call it.

    The PDI glass is good in certain rooms with poor lighting positions or brighly lit ceilings. For the most part well positioned spotlights (over the shoulder of the players) and a Pinzero glare guard eliminates the need for it. I have people tell me all the time that my games look like the glass is off. Installing two layers of warming filter on Stern translite tubes helps prevent glare too along with NEVER installing LEDs in a backbox.

    Wait, you're telling me that huge logo is etched into the glass? That's insane!

    I have nothing but the utmost respect for Jack, but he is on smack if he thinks collectors are going to be cool with that logo. It's nice to hear that the product at least delivers on the promise of being an alternative to PDI. Thanks for the pics, tatman!

    Wow... That logo is very prominent. Have to say that's very disappointing. Thanks for posting Tat.
