    Purists who also insist on removing mylar hate them. I have one and after a full teardown resto i opted to clean, wax, and reinstall. I cant really tell the difference in gameplay. Its all personal preference though. You may hate it or love it.

    Some people love them. Some people hate them. It’s going to cost $100 and some disassembly/reassembly to find out which one you are. You can’t convince a hater that there is any benefit. You can’t convince a lover that you don’t need them on new or modern games.
