Quoted from RobT:
At times I wonder how many people who complain of not being able to hit the left ramp is because they aren't hitting a clean shot? It's definitely more towards the end of the flipper more than most ramp shots that are this steep. In other words, it's not a particularly easy ramp shot, but it's very makable when hit correctly, and unless there is some type of issue with a flipper binding up etc, there is no issue of being enough power.
I'm not that terrible at pinball, so the issue for me isn't accuracy alone.
It's very clear when that ball goes up the ramp that it doesn't have a lot of power behind it.
I couldn't bother setting up a stand to take a video tonight, bit I did shoot this playing one handed.
This is exactly how 95% of my shots to the left ramp go. I don't know if it's the flipper switch, the flipper itself, or what. I know flipper flutter when balls come off the pop, so something isn't right here.
I've checked all switch games, bushings, etc. Everything seems fine. Only weird thing is that the flipper seems high is respect to the ball, but thought I read somewhere that it has to do with Spooky using a thinner pf?!?!
But the game isn't playable because I can't make that shot and start adventures.
Waited almost a year and half for this game, and pretty bummed that it's like this.
