    Having only recently gotten into the passion for collecting pins, I haven't had a lot of experience over the years with the games. Here recently I have been going to locations and playing every pin available. I've run across some concerns with a number of the Stern pins of played and wanted to know if this happens with all pins on a regular basis, or just more often with the Sterns.

    While playing Transformers Pro, Simpsons Pinball Party, Pirates of the Caribbean and LOTR, I've had the ball get stuck in different locations on more then one occassion. I've also had the machines at different times, kick out one or two additional balls before I send the ball into the playfield. Causing me to start the game with an immediate 3 ball multi-ball.

    I've played Williams games like High Speed II, No Fear and Space Shuttle and not had the same problems. Is this a known problem with Stern machines, or am I just running into some bad luck with machines that aren't being taken care of properly?

    Thanks in advance!
