I agree. I had the centre post as well but the extra length added flippers is what made this game for me. With the added flippers I took the centre post out, but kept the inlanes on the shortest setting (but I do this for all games b/c I suck at pinball).
Instead of the carrot flippers b/c they are so ugly imo, I went with these purple aluminum bad boys:
Quite pricey but they look amazing and feel great! I also ended up with the purple aluminum push buttons which complete the look. I love this pin with the added length flippers. Now I'm waiting for this code update so the game can hopefully be complete. Don't disappoint me Dwight and Stern!
Quoted from rockrand:
