Some good ones mentioned already. The most satisfying backhand for me at this point is the black widow ramp in AV. Tough to do but when done it's a good feeling.
Dialed In, right flipper to the phone. The shot rattles around the scoop too much from the left flipper, but from the right it drops on in. I also like the Metallica graveyard drops from the left flipper. Ball gets out of control too often from the right. The tall subway ramp in Ghostbusters prem/le also feels slick when you can get it from the left.
edit: Didn't realize this was 5 years old. Well, whatever.
How did I miss this thread 5 years ago? Nice topic.
I put about 10 games on FT last night, played like shit the whole time. That extra ball is TOUGH. What really pisses me off is that every single fucking ball launched bounces off of the guide or the rubber at a different trajectory EVER SINGLE FUCKING TIME.
And it's not just mine. It's every FT I've ever played.
Think that ball's comin to the right flipper? It might. It might fucking not.
Drives me crazy. Time to relevel machine maybe?
POTC Tortuga ramp when the flippers are built and set correct is the best ever. Frankly, both multiballs, Tortuga and Dead Man's Chest SHOULD be backhand-possible....but most of the time flippers suck and aren't set correctly for the left side to work because of how steep the ramp is.
First off, big upvote to snaroff for his searching ability!
On topic, I love to backhand the Spine Chiller in wh20. It’s always satisfying and often strategic — when you have 2 balls locked, third lock lit, flashing whirlpool and the Boulder award is 5x playfield so you can get that stacking, then getting to the upper pf is much easier and safer via backhand rather than a tricky timed shot from the right flipper.
Beyond stacking 5x pf and multiball, backhanding to the upper pf usually means a slower ball coming around to the upper flipper. So it’s easier to hit the shot you want, like for a combo.
I find backhanding the drop targets on Iron Maiden to be pretty satisfying. One difficult backhand shot is(lost in space)trying to get the robot scoop especially when your trying to start robot multiball.
