I'm in the process of getting my Paragon playing like a champ. I was having a bit of an issue where the spinner was getting caught halfway up, creating an opening so that when the ball passed through, it wouldn't hit the spinner at all. So I took it off, rubbed each side of the posts with sand paper and added just the thinnest coat of super lube. Now the spinner goes about 3 dozen times on a solid hit.
On a game like Paragon, it can advance the bonus quite a bit. On other games with super spinners or lit spinners, you can get tens of thousands of points (or whatever the scale is). Is there ever too much spinner? Would you consider that "cheating" or "unfair"?
