I bought a fish tales as an entry level pinabll machine. It needed alot of work.

I would just like to say that the Novus products do amazing work on cleaning up the playfield.
If you were evr on teh fence about LED's I would sugest you get them. What a diffference. I wish I had done before and after pics because man is it just night and day. I should finish installed all teh led's this weekend and will post some pics.

Be good to see.

I put some LED's in my FT and they look great, especially the purple.

FT does look great with LEDs. Did you buy the kit or pick them out yourself? I found that the kit did not contain enough 906 flashers and the yellow Stretch-o-Meter LEDs were the wrong style (47 base versus 555). I also changed the color of the fish insert LEDs to match the fish color instead of white as I feel this looks better.

Enjoy your FT! I love mine!

I just bought a selection and keep trying different combinations. The green Noflix Plus are really good. Actually found the fish inserts too bright with LED's so they are out for moment. Got GI's for pops etc but not in yet as they are very difficult to fit.......well for me anyway!

And yes, FT is one of those really under rated games. I want to sell it to buy something else but I cannot part with it.....really annoying

Holy smokes, your collection looks like a Pinside Top 20 list!

WH2O and FT?...What the hell did you get in return? A sweet TZ or AF I hope. Those are two games I would like to have in my posession...oh, and for anyone who still questions the power of the LED take a look at these pics and then make a more wise decision.

#15 9 years ago

FT has full LEDs. DW has insert LEDs and incandescent GI. T2 is full incandescent. Notice a difference?

Why no LED's in T2? I am getting a T2 tomorrow......yes!

And noticed your fish eye has a light - is this a mod or maybe mine has never worked?

Thanks.

Yours doesn't work. I just bought the T2 yesterday.

Mine goes loose as well. I think the flapping of the fish tends to shake the eye bulb loose. I'm planning to put a solder bulb on an LED to fix it once and for all one of these days.

#19 9 years ago

Looks really great!

#20 9 years ago

great lookin machines. t2 is a hot item right now i was thinkin bout pickin one up. love leds

#21 9 years ago

I had a Red led in the Eye,, I later changed it to Green... I dis-connected the Tail-coil while it owned it.. It annoyed me..

BR, you're down to 3 machines now? I notice you didn't hang onto that Corvette long.

Wish my FT didn't have the cabinet fade. Some day I'd like to re-decal it.
