Hello Pinside Pinmasters.

Now that I've brought back to playing condition and resolved (with gracious assistance from many of you) most of my problems with the Champion Pub game that I recently acquired, I have noticed that the balls are starting to get magnetized after a few rounds on the jump rope. Is there any fix for this or do I just need to install non-ferrous balls? I recently purchased Ninjas but I'm guessing that they'll just get magnetized too after a bit of play.

Think you answered your own question, buy balls that won't be magnetized.

Thanks guys. I guess sometimes it's just talking it out.

I appreciate your help.

A fair follow-up is do non-ferrous balls behave the same as regular balls, physically?

All pinballs are ferrous. If they weren't, magnets wouldn't work. What you want for games with magnets is low carbon steel pinballs, like linked below. Less likely to get magnetized.

Thanks all. I'll get some low carbon steel balls and save the Ninjas for my next pin.
