When would be a good time frame/games played to change out the pinballs?

I have a few new games, properly waxed PF and was curious what people thought....

Every time I clean my games ( commercial use ) I check them. If they are starting to get a satin finish, out they go.

If they're the default Sterns, I literally had pits in the BALLS --
Everything else: watch them while you're playing, if they look dirty/cloudy, take them out and try to polish them.
If they don't polish, cya later balls.

I noticed games with auto plungers wear the balls out sooner in my collection.

Metal to metal contact.

Talk about a click bait topic! LOL

"Haven't seen em in years without a mirror!"

But honestly, only when I do a shop job. And that's often enough for what I do.

Also when they stick together...if it's a game with magnets.

Well.... daily, they shrunk a bit since getting on the sauce, got to keep them in check.

It's been cold here. Kind of sends them north. Hard to find. Harder to see.

I know you are secretly wishing I'd post a picture of my mirror that magnifies stuff.

So I'll save you the embarrassment and just go ahead and post it. Just for you.
