    Interesting idea and indeed kind of dust off old technologies for some part as it has been done befor. I have 2 pinballs with a Playfield protector and owned a 3rd one and I find them playing fine. Assume this will be quite similar.

    haggispinball :

    As I understand there are now 3 options:

    1) classic wood-only playfield as we all now
    2) wood + acryl with anti-scratch layer
    3) wood + acryl with anti-scratch layer + clearcoat.

    What is the idea behind option 3? Is this for feel of play or to make it even more scratch resistant? Assume option 1 is available for those not trusting-wanting the acryl top-layer? Perhaps also available for lowest cost?

    Than option 2 and 3, how do you do the inserts? Is there a 'dummy' insert present or is it just an empty hole? When I look at the youtube video

    I can see 'ribs' as present with classic playfields (see attached picture). Or was this an option 1 playfield?

    Hi Rensh,

    To clarify, the three options are (from you post above):

    1) classic wood-only playfield as we all now
    2) wood + acryl with anti-scratch layer
    3) wood + acryl + clearcoat.

    So option 3 isn't using the scratch resistant coating, just standard acrylic with a clear coat. Option three was for those that didn't want to play on an acrylic top, but wanted to retain a clear coat feel/finish, without the worry of dimpling, etc..

    The prototype we had a Chicago Expo (the video still you posted), was a traditional playfield, so has our faceted inserts installed. Both of the Hybrid options (HySR and HyCC) will also have the same inserts installed, just via a different mounting method.

    Cheers,
    Damian
