Picked up a really nice original EBD with the exception of the playfield. I already have a fully restored EBD in the line up, so this one will go on the market. Looking for opinions on hardtop vs. PF swap. I have done several PF swaps, so I fell like I am well versed. I have never played a hardtop pin, only viewed one in the wild and it looked great. Mirco appears to be the only option on PF at the moment and there have been questions raised on the colors. Love to hear some opinions, especially from anyone who has a Mirco EBD playfield.

CPR just did a run of EBD a few months ago.

You should be able to shake one of those loose pretty easily.

If you were keeping it for yourself, the Hardtop would be nice - but for resale, you will get WAY more cash for the CPR

FYI the cpr is nice but there’s a handful of things off. Just stuff to be aware of.

I'm am currently doing a Mirco ebd swap .
Some dimples aren't dimples but mistakenly pre drilled holes and the one on the upper right flipper is even milled
On the other hand a very clean playfield !

Sorry to hear about the Mirco issues. Here’s the CPR: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/eight-ball-deluxe-cpr-playfield-swap

Lot of work by phillyfan64 to get it done. He was a huge help.
