I have absolutely no desire to buy anything NIB anymore.

Unless the manufacturers include something covering playfield damage around posts in their warranty I wouldn't consider NIB right now. Regular wear in areas that come in contact with the ball is well within reason but the areas directly around the posts are not touched by the ball at all. This shit is ridiculous - Looking at you specifically JJP since you are the only manufacturer that has shown a complete lack of support in this regard. F- this shit.

Quoted from Goronic:

Did you forget the sarcasm emogi? I don't see a bad dimple problem, chipping yeah...bad dimpling no.

Clearly you have not seen what a badly peeled orange looks like. No dimples.

HEP has already commented in another thread I believe.

Quoted from John_I:

If this is a case of the new clears curing more slowly, is there any way to make them cure fully once they are set up in your home?
Maybe leave the game on 24x7 to keep the internal temperature up? Open the game and blow a fan indirectly over it? Put it out in a hot garage in Florida? Blow a space heater under the game?

Wonder if we can just get the upper fan and space heater mods installed directly from the factory?

Wow, the NIB experience has certainly changed from the last one I bought a couple of years ago. Fun times.

Does anybody know or have seen issues with the WOZYBR editions???? Might tell a story about JJP CE's holding up better...

Did they actually sell one?

Filed under the B.S. section...

I thought Zach was only there to wear costumes at the reveal streams. I especially loved his work as the blow-up T-Rex...very convincing. I'd still love to find out who the mastermind is behind the Stern Insider Club.

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

The manual on the LCD is great, that is until you have the playfield lifted lol.

Or unless the issue you need to look up involves 'no image on screen' - lol.

Quoted from Tranquilize:

My theory is that over time, the blistering (I have very little) will settle flat. Then I'll remove the large washers and put on smaller ones. Hopefully the clear can/will cure close to flat. This is all assuming I can find the damned washers...

You're most likely going to be left with an indentation in the clear from the larger washer though. I would put the larger washers only if you intend on leaving them there permanently.

Quoted from Who-Dey:

From what i am understanding if your game has soft clearcoat it will never harden.

Yeah, if the composition of the mix is off, you can wait the rest of your life and nothing will change.

Quoted from Swoods5688:

My deadpool is 2 months old and 116 plays on it and this is my shooter lane. Still waiting on a response from stern on what they will do for me on it

They’re going to send you some clearcoat in a tiny bottle - most likely.

Quoted from Jackalwere:

NIB is okay you just have to pick your spots.

Yeah, anything other than the top two pinball manufacturers and you’re good.

Quoted from flynnibus:

it is cured - it was sprayed many months ago. The formula they used is not resulting in a stiff finish resistant to compression like we are used to.
Cure is not the same thing as 'hard'. Cure means the chemical reaction has finished and the product is now stable.

Yeah, the level of hardness in those defective playfields will not change at this point.

Quoted from razorsedge:

I was listening to it just feeling like something was totally off... out of touch with facts, can't work out if it is due to ignorance, bias, or some other directive. Way too much inaccurate information and misguided analysis. Curious that the week before was an episode devoted entirely to JP2....

I noticed the same thing actually. Honestly there's only a small number of podcasters that I feel give honest, unbiased opinions at this point. You need to choose your words carefully when you need interviews or have friends at certain companies. The podcasts without these conflicts are the ones I prefer.

jwp72 I see nothing wrong in that pic.

Like was mentioned a few posts ago...what are you expecting Stern to do at this point? Some of this is getting a little out of control I feel.
