Somebody here got a problem with dimpling?

I decided to put this to the test. I removed the apron from my BSD that has a very smooth playfeld and proceeded to drop balls in that virgin area and sure enough, dimples just like on my new Batman playfield. Nothing to worry about as long as the clearcoat stays put.

Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

Yes, but some people still will not believe you

I didn't believe it myself until I ran the test, and I still have a cleared NOS Skateball with no dimples at all, but on BSD there they were.

I have some antique games that I was going to test it on, but they used much better wood back then, so that might not be a fair test.

Quoted from Pinballlew:

Any chance that you took pictures?

No, but I can tell you it's more obvious on the Batman probably because it is such a shiny new clearcoat and the lighting is much brighter. Like I said, I'm not going to worry about it.

If the clear starts peeling off I may join the bitching and moaning club, but so far it's holding up just fine. Aint gonna play it again until they drop some new code either as what it shipped with and what they updated it with should be a total embarrassment to them. What a joke that is. But playfield's solid.

I'll drop some balls under the apron of one of my plastikoted/ hardcoated Williams 60s playfields and report back when I get around to it.

Well, dimples don't seem to both the professor.

That guy's old. He is probably on the list for his own pinball machine.

Quoted from iceman44:

I was doing a flow test the other day. I rolled some pinballs down the street outside my house.
Lots of fast flow down the street. There weren't any dimples in the concrete as far as I could tell as they hopped down
The balls were all scuffed up.

That reminds me, it might be time to get those factory Stern balls out of my machine.

No more Williams for me; I hope they go out of business.

Darn, and I was hoping we might get that IJ VE before the end of the next decade.
