Really wanted to like this game. Theme would have been great for my kids. Even my wife wanted to play it. Then there was the flipper gap. Game over. It’s just not fun for family players. I still like to play it myself but had to pass on buying one.

Quoted from JodyG:

I'm aware of the carrot flipper mod, but I'm wondering how much a slightly longer flipper would alter the shot geometry. Another reason for the brutality is the angle of the slingshots. They are steeper than usual, which leads so some for power drains in the out lanes.

It doesn't change the shot geometry at all for the shots that are already being played. You make the same shot from the same distance on the flipper. Example; to make shot X you are shooting the ball when it gets 2.5 inches down the flipper. Doesn't matter if it's a 3" flipper or a 4" flipper. it's still the same shot 2.5" down the flipper. You are not moving the position of the flipper, just making it longer. Also, the carrot flipper is the same thickness as a regular flipper. The added length is just narrower.
On the other hand, now you have a little extra flipper to make new shots you didn't have before.
