    They are a lot of work to put on or take off, and they affect gameplay. Sometimes they can be really bad on gameplay. I would tell you all day don’t use them in home use. The dimpling is way overblown IMO, it doesn’t affect gameplay and you don’t really notice it unless you’re really looking for it.

    Quoted from Mitch:

    I'm wondering if these playfield protector people do a full vinyl wrap on their cars so they dont get paint chips lol

    I did but that’s because I wanted a matte satin finish. :p But I don’t use PF protectors.

    Wax the playfield regularly and change the balls regularly. You’ll never need the protector. People posting pics of abused destroyed play fields as if that’s something that will happen in a maintained HUO game are being intentionally misleading.
