After 2 years in business, we thought it good to finally present a catalog of sorts for everyone (sorry it took so long!).

All MRS' are currently available...prices are either $30/ea or $35/ea...shipping is $5 domestically (does not include insurance) and varies to internationally......

First up is our first product....the Williams OEM MRS. This replacement OEM MRS was featured in the following WMS pins: NGG, SC, RFM, SWEP1, NBAFB, CV & CC.

Next is the Sega OEM MRS'. These replacement OEM MRS' were featured in the following SEGA pins: SJ and SWT - it was also used as a fix for the Maverick paddle wheel.

#3 6 months ago

Here the universal plastic ramp MRS is pictured. It can be used in nearly any Williams, Bally, Midway, Sega, Data East, Spooky, Capcom, Gottlieb (and so on) plastic ramp. It self adheres.

#4 6 months ago

Another popular MRS is the bowl MRS. Custom fits the following pins: CFTBL, TTTR, Mustang, DE_GNR, Diner, Taxi and JY - it also fits the WMS_IJ plastic ramp to wireform ramp transition. Each is technically unique but look similar - hence one picture.

In the same vain, but a little different look , is the bowl MRS for Cactus Canyon. It can self-adhere like the bowls or fasten via a bolt and an unused hex standoff on the pin.

#6 6 months ago

The most recent MRS is for Xenon - the tube ramp switch (which is unobtainium). Looks similar to the universal ramp - but is curved lengthwise to fit the tube.

#7 6 months ago

Now get into the universal rollover for all Gottlieb, Stern, WMS, DE, SEGA, Spooky, JJP, Bally, Midway, Capcom (and so on) pins.

#8 6 months ago

Please update each with pricing.

#9 6 months ago

Another rollover variation is used in various shooter lanes like TOTAN, the skill shot lane for TZ, and other pins where the mounting tab needs to be to the side.

#10 6 months ago

One last rollover is the universal star rollover for dozens of 70's and 80's pins from all manufacturers. Take off the leaf switch - stick on the MRS and leave the white star in place....

#11 6 months ago

Now let's get into the weird shit: The TOTAN 'cobra' - used up by the vertical magnet that transitions into the wireform ramp.

#12 6 months ago

Similarly is the DE_SW "omi" goes up on the wireform at the back of the pin!
omri (resized).png

#13 6 months ago

And one of our biggest sellers....that frustrating left diverter to right ramp switch for Shadow!

sahdow (resized).png
#14 6 months ago

All Rollover MRS', the Cobra & Omri MRS' are $35/ea
All other MRS' are $30/ea

Shipping domestically is $5. Shipping to AU, CA or Europe varies.

PM if interested, questions or to order!

This bizarre solution is for ACNC - the right orbit rollover was misplaced in a very wide lane making registration unreliable. This solution mounts above the orbit lane on the bottom of the ramp above.

Another rollover is unique to the BK2K upper playfield. There are 6 total on the upper playfield.

#17 6 months ago

Another quasi-universal rollover is this little guy that fits in long playfield slots where you may find 2 or more rollovers all ganged together.

Quoted from TaTa:

Interesting...All in on the Shadow Switch

That was one of our first products - we both have Shadow and felt the pain - that was the first MRS that began to stray away from a conventional 'block' design.

#21 6 months ago

Awesome work! Look forward to trying out the universal star roll over on my continually frustrating Paragon.

#22 6 months ago

Any thoughts on adding one to replace pop bumper skirts?

#23 6 months ago

Woof! pop bumper skirts - we'd have to really think about that one. Offhand that seems super challenging. However, those spoons....ugh. Big pain.

#24 6 months ago

Here's a pic of early rollover prototypes on RFM. I painted the tops green. These are still in my game and working great. Eliminates the flaky wire actuated micro switches.

Pinsider Gnrwarkfc posted some pix of the star rollover replacement. Since the switch loops over the star post coming through the insert, you should be able to retain the leaf to 'spring' the star up or just remove it entirely. We don't rely on physically deflecting the star so the switch has more range. On a lot of these games, the star does not register all the time because it sits in a wide lane and the ball whiffs. The reed switch can sense the ball from farther away so you get more hits.

Also our switch replacement for the Shadow lower left ramp, right exit switch. This one gives people fits due to unreliability (although for whatever reason on my Shadow, it works all the time??). This sucks because of the modes, skillshots and scoring associated with hitting that shot. This is a unique version of the switch to mitigate this problem. We've just done a similar but also unique one for the ramp exit on DE Star Wars.

Ordered a set of the generic inlane/ outlane slot switch replacements and installed them on my homebrew this weekend — they work perfect, really happy with them!

Thanks man! I tell ya - it took a solid year of experimentation for 2 engineers just to figure out how to make them...they are deceptively complex....and finicky as hell....but we got there...

Just installed the left ramp to right diverter replacement on my Shadow and it plays like a whole new game. Took 2 minutes to install and no more missed ramps and skill shots. Super elegant solution...wouldn't hesitate to recommend or buy again!

Installed the MRS on my Creature from the Black Lagoon bowl yesterday, and it's a great upgrade. Pretty simple installation (once you free up the bowl to get the apron off). And the included alcohol pad removed a ton of grime. I might not have remembered to clean it if the pad hadn't been included, so thanks.

Removing the old microswitch doubled the number of times the ball makes it around the bowl. I'm happy. Thanks Sonic for the great service.

I bought the Taxi switch for the skill shot bowl.

I highly recommend this!

Fits great. Works perfectly. Really a nice solution to common Taxi issue where it is hard to get enough revolutions in the skill shot.

By installing the switch, you can eliminate any “drag” the traditional switch causes that may slow down ball on skill shot. I have owned a couple years now. This is a good product.

Do you have a switch for the u turn shot on Mando? The shot is so important and too many times the switch does not actuate. Many complaints on Mando thread. Can you help us Mando owners out?

I've had 2 inquires about this to date P1nhead and JonCBrand - no orders.....we do have a solution - it's pretty straightforward - a standard rollover MRS.....

Dumb question but, all the neon colors are for illustration purposes? all the switches come black like the Diner one I got from your very first batch?

If those rollovers fit and work well in B/W system 11 & WPC games, I think you may very well change the whole world of pinball!! Especially when it comes to the handful of games with rollover wireforms that are unobtainium!

#43 3 months ago

Finally got around to installing my Shadow left ramp MRS. It'll be at TPF!

Correct - they are in black....we do the color stuff for visualization - and you are correct about rollovers - we have built nearly 1000 so far...it's been nuts!!

I have bought both the Shadow and the Creature reed switches. No ball hang on Shadow and a minimum 5 spins on Creech
Fantastic products
Buy with confidence

Only 5?!? Mine is 12-13!! So to do that - remember to level the bowl (left to right), raise the front to back as level as you can and still slide the glass....and lastly you can adjust the wireform into the bowl to maximize trajectory....do those things and I think you'll double your current count....it so cool when it goes around 10x's!
