    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    They are 40 years old, I wouldn't say they suck. Just well past their service life, by many decades.
    I like that there's an affordable alternative to repairing or maintaining them, at $200 most of my Bally games end up with a new Alltek.

    As much as I hate to agree with Levi...i'm going to have to do it here. These have been around for decades. It's time for a new board.

    Quoted from oldschoolbob:

    I hope my wife don't feel that way about me.
    Thanks Quench. That's what makes this hobby so great. Some like to fix them and other like to play them.

    I appreciate you bringing them back. I just don't think that saying they "suck" after decades of use accurately portrays their quality. Just my opinion.
