    I installed one once to protect a NIB machine. It does affect the game play and you may or may not like it. I personally didn't like it. Even with it fresh and clean... a spinning ball has very different physics when running on the protector vs. clear-coat. I would't bother on a new clean playfield... its a great option for a worn playfield.

    Installation can be a lot of work... depending upon the machine.

    Quoted from northerndude:

    The protectors (or at least mine anyway) was shipped in a roll in a tube.

    it's really hard to get them flat sometimes after they've been rolled. I tossed one because I left It in the tube to long, couldn't get it to stop flexing.

    Quoted from Nepi23:

    Yes, that's the one. I think it will be the most difficult bit.

    I was asking, wasn't sure what piece you were talking about.

    If you can’t find one for your specific pin or if you are just feeling ambitious/saving money. Make your own for about $10

    Quoted from ViriiGuy:

    I absolutely HATE playing a pin with one of these installed. It changes the ball roll, it adds more spin, it also changes the speed and sound.

    Yes, it changes all of that which is to my taste.

    I don’t know why you got down voted for giving your opinion.

    Because people are ignorant. Also, I don't care. I'll just give them back

    I don't know if I'll want mine on forever. But atleast until I find time to restore the playfield properly and fix all the bumps, gashes, cups, etc.

    Someone asked about shipping time from Germany to the US - I ordered last Thursday and it's set to be delivered this Wednesday.
