Just got my NIB SM last week from Trent. Enjoying the new game immensely; however, one thing my wife and I have noticed is the difference in flipper strength between SM and LOTR. Our flippers on LOTR are super strong and you can nail ring shots and ramp shots consistently. However, on SM they just feel a bit weak... a good proportion of shots don't make it all the way up the ramps, etc. I have the SM set at 7 degrees and the LOTR at 6.5 (not sure the angle of the playfield would make much of a difference). Also, I'm not the original owner of the LOTR and wondering if the PO upgraded the coils (is there a way to check that?). Feedback appreciated.
