I don't own a GB. I played on location for the first time last night. But was wanting to get some feedback from owners.
Never seen a silver ball fly so much on a single-level PF on such ordinary shots. Twice I sent a ball flying back the other way for a horrible airball drain. One time it went to the inlane and hopped over the separator from the outlane, drain. Then another one hit the left ramp post (I think, this happened fast) and flew over the wireform across the center PF, over the inlane and flipper and straight to the drain. At least this one let me shoot again. The flippers were strong, maybe too strong?
I also had the machine reboot while the ball was bouncing around in the jet bumpers, as if I had slamtilted. Now the table feels really light and wound up slide-saving a ball from the left outlane and got a tilt warning a few seconds earlier. Not sure if that had to do with something. I was just trying to nudge a bit when the legs moved with little resistance. But the table was stationary and the ball was in the jets when this happened. This was on a first ball so I lost my game and was actually starting to groove a little after some frustrating early drains.
I really want to like this thing. I can see how with some mods it can be a really good one. That right ramp looks really cool, is a fairly challenging shot, and my highlight of last night was hitting a perfect backhand through it. It also looks a lot better IRL than in pics. But overall my GB experience was underwhelming. At $1 a play I went through $7 in the space of 30 minutes. To be fair, it was my first live flip in at least a year, and I'm rusty. I lost a couple getting my bearings back, but after the first game maybe three or four balls were what I'd call my fault.
