Quoted from ATLpb:
An incredibly strange comparison in my opinion.
And I still don’t understand why ppl call this clunky. Only the Colossus shot is clunky.
The Colossus shot is actually pretty smooth for me (except with the tiny nature of the loop, it stills gives a clunky sound even when hit). I hit that shot a LOT, it's perfectly dialed in on my machine. The katana shot is what gets a little clunky for me, though it's a little better since I micromanaged the levelers a bit more. Tough to really get that shot perfectly setup.
But otherwise, yes, it's a very strange comparison. I may be the only person on Earth who was cross-shopping those two pins. At least, that's what my local dealer said, anyway. And I'm probably going to buy Pirates as well, anyway, and sell my Avatar to make room for it. I liked both pins a lot, but for very different reasons. Deadpool is slapstick, fun, and just a blast to play. Pirates was long, deep, and very well made. Bought Deadpool first because Stern pros are still very reasonably priced, all things considered. And Deadpool pro is very fully featured for a pro. Stern sells you a lot of pin for that money.
