    Hi
    I have a problem with my Centaur. When a fast ball hits the ORBS-droptargets, it simple bounces back without the droptargets falling. A slow Ball takes them down. I know this is a common problem in this type of droptargets and that the problem is mechanical. Can anyone tell me a solution?
    Best regards
    Michael

    Quoted from eh97ac:

    Double up the spring on each target

    So you just put two springs on each target and that solved it? Interesting.

    This was a common problem with Bally drop targets. Under super slow mo it was discovered if hit too hard the target bounces off the rubber behind it and back into place before the tension of the spring can pull it down. The fix is to use thinner rubbers behind the targets and/or stronger springs.

    Thank you very much. Problem solved. The lack of tension in The springs was The issue
