Just like the title says. Any thoughts on which is better and why? What about long term use with the mantis and it's ability to protect the top part of the playfield?
I understand that cliffy's offer full scoop hole protection but they also interfere (slightly) with a rolling pinball. I have a set of cliffys that he made thinner for me because I told him the protector would be going on a NOS playfield.
A Mantis protector offers the scoop protection (not full) but allows the balls to 'fall in' the scoop easier. My only fear of the mantis protector is the ability to actually protect the scoop hole long term (topside....unprotected part)
I have both the mantis and cliffys ready to go. Just trying to decide which one would be better. All suggestions and input welcome!
Thanks and happy new year pinsiders!
