Quoted from zr11990:

We can argue this topic till we are blue in the face and no one will win. There is really no way to prove it unless someone wants to take a old NOS Williams PF and install it in a game and play the shit out of it and compare it to a new Stern. The Stern fans will still never admit that the wood used on new Stern games is softer. I removed the PF from a reimported, routed WH20 and the PF is still flat as a piece of linoleum. Not one dimple on the game anywhere or any other blemish to speak of except for the spot on the lost mine kickout and the ball trail on the upper PF. Im betting that if you put that many games on a new Stern that the PF would be falling apart. Did the old W/B games have the shooter lanes boogered up by the first week or the ball return cutout all fucked up, and we are talking home use not route? I think not. It doesn't matter to me because I cant afford to buy any game right now much less a new Stern at their ridiculous prices but I would say that new Sterns dimple waaaaay more than the W/B games did because of inferior materials. And again, it doesn't matter because it is what it is. Stern will never go back to using higher quality materials because they don't have to. They are making bank selling the likes of a rehashed Costco Batman for 12 thousand dollars.
