Quoted from punkin:
Thanks, i did enjoy it for the short time it was out, didn't really think there was going to be any wear from the ball going over the edge of the mylar around it, jeez every piece of mylar on there has an edge somewhere, but this will be my most expensive pinball ever so far, couple hundred bucks over my Ducati 1098 and i'm worried a little about damage. I guess i'll just pull it out when it gets here and keep an eye on it, less someone else pops up and says don't do it.
Throw a piece of mylar over it when it arrives. The ball flys out of the pops quick enough that you will never notice a piece of mylar doing anything to the ball. If the ball drops out of the pops, half the time it drains SDTM which is frustrating. To me the removed post equaled less SDTM drains from the pops as well as adding a new ball direction to increase action.
