    Looking at doing the 1,000 play Stern coil stop replacement (why can’t they fix this?! ). For those that have tried the different vendors, who has the best replacement coil stops and why do you think so? Marco and Pinball Life being the two most obvious and similarly priced. Thanks in advance for your input.

    Never had to. Re-replace a pinball life stern stop. They seem pretty good.

    I've had to do on 4 sterns. Always keep a few on hand now

    How hard is it to replace these? Are all modern stern games the same replacement?

    Quoted from Ty-Arnold:

    Remove (2) 5/16" hex screws, remove stop, install new stop, reinstall hex screws. Total time per flipper is less than 5 minutes. Yes all modern Stern flippers use the same stop. Probably the same since Sega and DE days.

    2.50 in parts (for both) and 5 minutes of work for every 1000 plays seems reasonable.

    Pinballife of course

    Stern should just quit fighting it and start buying all their production parts from Pinball Life. It's way overdue.

    Which brand/vendor?

    Be aware that there are 2 different coil stops for Stern-Sega-Data East.

    The most common has a small hole. The older type used only on very early Data East TYFASSI flippers has a bigger hole. The centers are the same.
    You can stock just the smaller hole type and then make the hole larger with a drill press when you run into the need for the larger version. Or, you can stock both.

    Hey there! Got a moment?
