Quoted from DrDQ:
I think the SIM card shot may have been intended to be made more with a left flipper bank off the drone rubber than with the upper right flipper. It’s one of the most satisfying shots when you can make it purposefully. I would think a very skilled player could do this with some consistency (ie maybe 50% of the time).
I never thought to try this. My first attempt - banked it right in. Thanks for the tip!
