I recall that Mark Ritchie actually designed Fish Tales with standard WMS bats--and that prototypes were with shipped with standard bats.

But in the end, WMS agreed to a big Op's request for shorter ball times--and subsequently shipped production models with Lightning flips installed.

So, what flippers do you like better on FT?

Curious to hear the comments from owners and POs who've tried both, and permanently chosen one or the other.

Happy flippin'!

Quoted from PPS:

Lightning Bolt Flipper bats now on the store (YELLOW, WHITE, BLACK, RED (regular red, not blood red) 20-9734-X

These are injected parts, so there should no issues as had been experienced with a previous incarnation of them.
We are still working on getting the 'blood red' color corect, so that will take a little time ... stay tuned on that

Found above comment in the BSD Lightning Bolts Vs. Regular Flipper poll thread.

Wasn't aware of this news, so I thought I'd post it in this FT poll thread (along with a link to the other thread below).

Quoted from PhilGreg:

So they originally shipped with the lightning ones?

Yup (except for the prototypes).
