    Whirlwind is always a fun game--good one to start with. (Knowing it won't be your only/last pin!) Minor advice--get to know the insides of the game, don't be afraid to take the glass off. Tweak every little thing until the shots and mechs work perfectly. Now that it's yours, there's no reason for it not to play perfectly. THAT'S the joy of pin ownership!!

    Congrats! Whirlwind was my first pin as well and it's my favorite pin of all time I was lucky to find one in my area when I was able to buy it. Congrats again and WW is an awesome pin have fun!

    Drano,
    Thanks, Drano. That's quite a collection you've got there. You must get that feeling a lot.

    kwiKimart,
    Thanks a bunch. If you want it bad enough, you'll find it. Maybe after a year or so :lol:, but you'll find it. I'm testament to that.

    FlipperMagician,
    Ah! You've been around a bit. I hope the central coast is treating you well. I head back at least a couple times a year.

    StevenP,
    Thanks for the sound advice! Much appreciated. ...and thanks for stopping by.

    Goughs417,
    Thanks so much, Goughs417. That's great to hear about the staying power of Whirlwind. I'd sort of come to the same conclusion over the past year of looking at pins, but it's nice to hear it from an owner.

    Whirlwind brothers! Congrats to you too!

    Honch,
