Quoted from Whysnow:

Just an observation. there are:
1. LOTS of new distributors doing the MMr thing that have not been pinball distributors in the past

Quoted from jgentry:

Pinball Pro - They sell speakers and other stuff, ever heard of them?
Automated Services -Biggest distro for pretty much all the games
FlipNout - Larry Kitchen, guy with the escalaras at expo, tps, southern fried and numerous other shows
Pinballstar- just look at the children's hospital donation threads
These are the people you are saying are fly by night and are selling junk that will need to be liquidated soon. That's what is listed in the market place. Not sure how you see that as a personal attack. Looks more like a fact to me.

Whysnow said there are five distributors selling on Pinside, I've never bought NIB and even I have heard of the four entities jgentry listed here. Whysnow, why not just list the names of the "LOTS of new distributors doing the MMr thing that have not been pinball distributors in the past"? That would settle at least one issue you've raised. If your concern is with TwistedPins, it sucks that they're shafting their customers, but weren't they involved in the pinball business for a while before they stopped taking calls?

As far as unusual wear goes, I haven't routed one myself but I can say that the MMR on location at 1UP Colfax in Denver always seems to be working fine when I play it, and certainly still looks great, and it's been on route and getting plenty of play for many months now. Doesn't mean the one near you isn't destroyed, of course, but it would be interesting to know if there's something special about that machine (or location) that's leading to potentially anomalous results.
