I’m aware this is no answer to your question. :-)Never liked the EM style flipper bats and chose to upgrade to a more contemporary design. Quite satisfied with how they look and play.

zipper flipper purists may need to look away..

Looks Good! I beat them out last night as was able to use the existing shoes. Looks and plays better. Do you feel it's more accurate and easier to aim up top with modern flipper bats?

They probably wont feel more accurate to use if you are used to EM games. Found it easier to get them perfectly aligned with the overlying plastic – which I assume is the intended flipper angle. Had a hard time trying that with the EM bats. When the flippers closed they would form an almost horizontal flipper line..

Hi there- we had a request to make a replacement for the KICKER POST RED NYLON BALLY MIDWAY for a local pal. He is going to try it out but we are looking for a few others to see if our design solves the breakage issue with this part.
If you are interested, reach out to me at this email support@mezelmods.com

Fireball II also uses this post so you might want to post the same in that club thread:

Is that originally a plastic part? In my game it's made of metal.

Hello. New to pinball collecting and one of my first pins is a Medusa. I am going to start restoring this one and wondering about the rubbers. Mine is currently all red, but I've seen several kits using white and yellow on the flippers. What are the original colors?
My playfield is pretty jacked too, so I will have to restore or replace it.

The white and yellow were the originals used. If you look at the original flyer for Medusa this is what's shown.

Private Message (PM) BobLangelius or got or http://www.langelius.com/ and he can sell you replacement targets for the top of the playfield. Must have if yours are broken or not the original targets.

Awesome, thanks for that. I should have looked closer at the flyers I saw. Wanted to make sure there weren't multiple variants

Repost. Apparently shipping to a pinsider in Australia wasn’t meant to be.

Does anyone here need this? It’s the window plus the cardboard(?) spacer and a couple of screws.

Somebody asked me recreate the little kicker pole in between the two flippers of a Fireball II which can be used on a Medusa also. So here it is.

The 2 last pics where my first version, since them been using the red semi tranparant look. Price 17$ or 15 € + shipping.

If you have any questions just shoot.

Hey folks, I managed to score a Medusa a little while back. What a cool game.

Does anyone know where to source the dual eos switch used for the zipper flippers? The ones installed in mine are 2 normally closed eos with a metal blade in between separating them. They seem kind of unique to me. I combed through Marco and Pinball Life but didn't see them.

Post #388 is your friend: it has details on how to assemble the custom EOS switches from stock parts (no one sells the complete unit).

Ahh ok. I had searched in topic looking for the info before asking and skimmed through that post but I guess I missed it. I see it now. Thanks for the help.
