Can anyone recommend a substitute drop target for this game, these break all the time.

Thanks in advance

I haven't found anything better than the standard DE replacements available at Marco.

Did you stretch a flipper rubber around the posts behind the DT's? I can't claim cause/effect, but I haven't had one break since I did that.

I haven't had one break yet! Hopefully I won't, but I did just ordered replacement stickers, as mine are shot.

You might want to check the coil on the upper flipper, as i undertand that it is supposed to be a weaker coil than the lower 2 coils, as to prevent it from hitting the ball too hard in to the drop targets, thus cutting down on target breakage. From what I understand, many times people mistakenly replace the upper coil with the same strength coil as the lower ones, which winds up destroying targets.
Fun little fact I picked up from watching the TNT /Todd video on YouTube for this title
