Pro, should be here September.
Quoted from soapblox:
So just a thing...
The shooter lane doesn't have a one-way gate, nor does it have the "traditional" little raised up part that keeps the ball from "accidentally" falling back in. In the dozen or so times I've played on location, the ball could just fall back in there. Sure, it auto plunges the ball out right away, but I'm curious as to why this was done. Was this a conscious design decision? Or just another way to shave a couple bucks of the production costs?
Can't really think of another Stern that has the shooter lane just open like that.
EDIT: This is for the PRO, don't know if the LE/Premium will be the same
I have a plan to make a gate that will do the same as the missing lane to katana. Remove the top non controlled gate and it'll act pretty much as the premium.
Quoted from chuckcasey:
I also put them on my Pro in my personal arcade because I have so many guest who are NON-pin players. I'd prefer they have a little more fun. Playing it myself compared to prior to installing them I don't see a HUGE difference. I was expecting the ball to barely fit and be able to bump easier but it's not the case on my pro.
On our LE I left them off.
Interesting because mine came with them fitted.
