Quoted from Quench:

Nothing really, but what exactly do you gain? Is there some Williams service bulletins explaining the benefits of parallel connected flipper coils?

Nope, nothing other than Williams' patent/marketing hype I guess. People do seem to like to change WMS series wound coils to parallel though and they swear it makes a difference? I usually do it only because I don't feel like having several types of coils around and I usually convert the older 2 piece base flipper coils to the wpc/system 11 style.

Has anyone tried the coils from the Bally/Midway 6803 games (A-24-570/34-3600) in an earlier Bally SS? They are just slightly longer than the earlier coils and they should have a little more power.

I installed the stern coils recommended earlier in this thread. One failed and started popping the f4 fuse after a bit of use. Put the old coil back in on that side. the other stern remains.I do not see a difference between the two part numbers

I installed the 24-570/34-3600 coils in an Elektra today. Transformed the pin. They are noticeably stronger but not enough to break stuff. I jacked up the rear of the machine nearly to the max to increase the slope and the flippers have plenty of power to make all of the shots. A much needed improvement in the pace of game play on this pin.

Note that you MUST have clean EOS and flipper switches.

I will have to try these since one of the Stern pair I swapped in failed after showing no improvement. Actually already bought them. Thanks for testing!

Just installed the 24-570/34-3600 coils. Testing them and 3 times the right flipper made the tube shot. Dont think I ever saw that with any of the coils I tried. As far as I am concerned if you want stronger flippers and you have done everything else possible these coils are the ones to use.
