I compared my GOTG LE with about 500 plays and it has dimples that are hard to see because of the colors. If I take a light and put it at an angle you can see them. Now my DPLE with about 25 plays has dimples as well but is a bit easier to see because of the brightness of the colors. But still doesn’t bother me because I still have to get close and at angle to see them which I’m not doing because I’m playing the machine. But I agree that steel versus wood will always creates dimples.
