Fish Tales owners, when hitting a Starboard ramp shot, does your ball ever fly out of right side of the thewireframe and end up in the right outlane? if so, have you fixed it?

I have never had that happen. Check to make sure everything is in line where the plastic ramp hooks into the wire form. Look for it being bent down and make sure the anchor screw is mounted to the playfield post. Pics?

I had that happen after I shopped mine. I found that I had to adjust it where it is secured to the sling shot. I have never had it happen since that adjustment.

Make sure that the game is properly leveled, first of all. If it is, try several adjustments to where it mounts to the slingshot. If it still falls off, you may have to rework the wire frame a little bit. I had to slightly bend mine to get it to work 100%.

Thanks guys. I finally filmed a few instances of the problem. I think the lower rail definitely needs bending up a bit. The Port ramp seems raised a bit so the Starboard side probably needs a similar adjustment. Later today probably.

Anyway, here's a video with slow-motion for each instance:

I know this is a very old post but did you ever find the solution on your table? Mine has been doing it as well lately.

Loosen the nut ontop of the slingshot and pull the wire form in as far as possible and then tighten the nut back up.
Should work.
