    Okay, time for a fun Friday night thread.

    Format is name a game, then pick your ONE most favorite shot on that game, and explain why.

    I'll start.

    IJ - nailing the captive ball to start 2-ball multiball. Feels so satisfying to send the captive ball flying to the top of track!, longest shot in the game too.

    BK - nailing the lit spinner and sending the sound effect "over the top" so it wraps back around to the low freqs. ("Whah whah whah"). That sound is like electrical stimulation for my lizard brain!

    Metallica - nailing the captured ball on the gravemarker magnet to free it and collect double jackpot. This is just super fun to do, the countdown timer makes it special.

    Okay, who else has some?

    Banzai Run - down the left inlane then shoot straight into Instant Rematch hole. Oh yes.

    Whirlwind: 3-Way Combo.

    Earthshaker: 'Zone 6' loop (with a lit spinner, it's doubly satisfying)

    White Water: Nailing a clean shot through boomerang bend.

    Lights Camera Action: Blasting that loop on the right during multiball when special is lit. Each loop pops the knocker. It sounds more impressive than it is, but man... It feels good.

    The back hand to lock in AFM is sweet, especially since post passes are usually tough on that game, and the alternative is shooting the tough right ramp, which, even if you make it, requires shooting on the fly.

    TAF - slamming a ball into the bookcase lock from the left flipper. That satisfying metal on metal 'clank' of the ball dropping into the scoop.

    Quoted from Fytr:

    I was just going to post the exact same shot.
    But it is even more satisfying during Thing or Quick multiball when you can fire off a couple in a row.
    Love that sound.

    Speaking of back hand shots, here are a couple of my favorites:

    BOP - Back hand the shuttle ramp, especially during multiball.
    Funhouse - Back hand the ramp during multiball to open the trap door.
    Getaway - Trap two balls on left flipper and one on right, then back hand to two into the supercharger to light super jackpot.

    A couple of other favorites:

    Funhouse - Bank a ball off superdog into the wind tunnel to collect mystery mirror.
    Quicksilver - Sweep the center drop target bank from the right flipper. Very hard to get all four without hitting the post or the side of the bottom target.
