Quoted from Lamprey:
I'm fine with the gap. I just didn't like the "droop," so I aligned the flippers with the ball guides.
It's your game, set up how you like.
No I know but it seems like a lot of the debate is whether or not Stern made a mistake, which I highly doubt.
You mentioned later factory flipper angle.. Did they change the angle and im not aware? If so, perhaps they actually did make a mistake? I havent heard of that before..
From what ive read, in general, about flipper lanes lining up with the dots or ball guides, it seems the majority says to keep it in line with the dots as there are reasons for it as intended from the factory. Also, it seems like a lot of people maybe do it to make that PKE lane shot easier but I feel, for one, its meant to be hard, and two, the game hardly uses that ramp and almost hardly makes it a mandatory shot, so again, seems like Stern set this up on purpose.
