So there is a spot on LW3 where a ball gets stuck by way of unintentional airball. The rubber rings in the pic show where the spot is. I'm planning to make a 'wall' by putting a bracket on a toy police badge since there is a mouting screw right there. Any other LW3 owners have this issue and what did you do? Loving my sub $1200 LW3 by the way. The previous owner bought it and had it shipped from The Pinball Clinic. It's in SUPER shape. Okay okay okay!

No issues with my LW3 on this problem.

It happens to me a lot. It happened to the first game my wife played on it too. Instead of a badge, I did this. It looks more factory-ish. I'm sure I could make it look cooler but it is functional now and I didnt have to drill/tape anything. Existing holes were used in the plastics with longer screws from my parts supply.

Yeah my LW3 had some wicked airballs from the drop targets and I'd get balls launched up there. Good idea.

Mine will launch onto the left ramp sometimes! Look at one of my recent posts to see pics of a plastic mod somebody made over the bomb targets to keep the ball down.
