Nice, bright with no fade. You shouldn't have any problems with trade. Hope you get a NGG or Ripleys.

I played NGG for the first time a couple months ago. Really liked it. Ripleys would be for my daughter so the fam will get off my back. I feel like crap I only have the 1 pin. Once school starts the funds will refill pretty quick. $375 a week for daycare is killing me.

I hope to have a $2000 pin by year end.

Great looking fish tales!!!

#6 5 years ago

My pinball budget was dried up about 3 pins ago ,so I'm alway throwing trade offers out there.I still Have my bad habits from my hardcore video game days always have to have something new .It was a lot easier buying $50 Nintendo ,xbox,ps3 games Then $2500 machines every week

Don't tempt me ,but I have to keep my eye on the prize really hoping for one of the machines I have listed .Star wars trilogy on the top of my list .

Beautiful game, especially if the other side of the cab is just as nice. Consider it a blessing in disguise that you haven't found a Star Wars Trilogy yet. The theme is the ONLY thing it has going for it.

I'm discovering a said truth that my wife and kids like brainless pinball machines ,if they have to earn the ooh and ahh of a game they, don't seem to play those ones.Fish tails is a tough game .
BTW the cabinet is great color a around same even color palette ,no nicks or gouges

My daughter goes to Michigan Tech in the U.P .We don't have a planned trip to see her anytime soon but if I do maybe we could work out something ,but there's a lot of ifs ...

FYI- Mike I sold Lapeen111 my old whirlwind. That's the one you're looking for go get it!

#19 5 years ago

If you can't find a trade would you sell outright to me and then buy what you are looking for? Thanks Don.

#20 5 years ago

I have a really nice WW.. Distance is a definite issue though :/

I know exactly what you mean.

#23 5 years ago

Come on guys ! Stop hoarding those Star Wars ,Rbion and NGG pins!!

#24 5 years ago

Well, I've got a NGG and a spare RBioN....but unfortunately, I don't need another Fish Tales.

All the voices in the RBioN are in Italian, too...just how you like it. =)

(I can't tell you how weird it is to hear the shrunken head talk with a Jamaican accent, and Italian dialogue. It's....different).

I'm off to burn new sound roms for it soon...

#25 5 years ago

Since most of the trade offers are long distance ,nothing local .If anybody wants to pay cash for Fish Tales I would take $3300 .That is probably a high price but since this FT is so dam nice it might be a low price and I need the money to buy the machines I want That's the cash price .
The pins I want are only 2 hours away but I have no money .
I would appreciate a owner of a FT to stop by my house and appraise mine.

Sorry friend, I don't like it as well. Maybe all red or all green but not both on opposite sides. The Skittle bandits are going to have a field day with this.

Quoted from Wariodolby:

Mmmm.... I'd stick with the cool white GI.

#31 5 years ago
Quoted from Wariodolby:

I will agree with the wife.

#32 5 years ago

Warm white forsted are the way to go in those slings. Best visabilaty, no wash out of pf colors and a nice complement to the Red and Blue pf sections

#36 5 years ago

just replace the connector prior to sale. It is an easy fix that many don't know/like to do.

#37 5 years ago

Agreed.

And make sure to replace the male header as well, not just the female side.

#38 5 years ago

Stay tuned for pictures of the fix

I'm putting my overall 9.5 Fish Tales up for sale pretty soon and I probably wouldn't take less than $3500 for it. Getting a Fish Tales is one thing, getting a super nice Fish Tales is another. =)

Looks awful. Put back the non LED 47s or 44s like its supposed to have.

That's the only way games should be lit down by the flippers.

So Rocko as a Fish Tales expert can I say my FT is a 9.49 ?

#42 5 years ago

New 1 burnt connector price $2900 until it gets fixed ....

Fixed the female connector but I'm going to take that board out to change the male header when everything is working perfect .It was the back box connector not the GI .

I'm finding out in the pinball world there is no honest answer Everybody has a hidden agenda.
But please feel free to trash my Fish Tales .

I wouldn't trash your FT and have no hidden agenda, but as a seller I always try to make stuff sound worse than it probably is. I think your FT is nice, but there are a lot of "buyers" that would probably take a good poke at you based on your description. I don't consider them serious buyers, but their point is taken, and if I were a distance buyer, understating condition is always the safer bet.

Just for the record I was joking about it being 9.49 .
I would say 7.9 maybe 8.
Like I said I would love someone to come over and look at it then give their opinion .

Ahhhh gotcha, The internet has a good way of losing inflection.... Good luck with your trade, FT is a fun game.....

#49 5 years ago

nice looking game, be patient you will find what u want

#50 5 years ago

I guess when I'm a seller, after someone contacts me and seems like a serious buyer ,I'm more then Happy to take video or as many pictures of everything on the machine until they are satisfied .Im always surprised a lot of people don't take me up on that offer.
I do have the goody bag for this machine to
