Quoted from Hayfarmer:
Any new opinions on pro vs premium? Lookin to buy , I dont have a preference right now. Any advice, or opinions appreciated. Thx
The premium is a smooth shooter because of the drop ramp when you shoot the left orbit. It makes for a safe and repeatable loop. However, I personally don't feel the additional cost is worth it. The other differences are the Disco Ball (there is a mod), drop targets for the DEAD POOL letter shots, and action figures for the playfield.
For the Pro I would argue it is a harder game because it doesn't have the safe loop.
So if cost isn't an issue I would go with a Premium, and if it is or you want a slightly harder game I would pick a Pro.
