Quoted from chuckwurt:
Would you get the same effect if you hooked Pinstadiums into the same flasher? Then wouldn’t have the bars running down the middle of the game.
It is close, but not as intense. I had the Creeping Death led strips and art blades for years and when I got Pinstadiums with UV Glow I hooked them up to the same flasher and ended up taking the Creeping Death led strips off.
I think the main difference in the intensity is due to the Creeping Death strips being mounted a few inches inside and pointed back at the side art blades, while the Pinstadiums are mounted on the art blades and have to flash all the way across the playfield to light up the art blades on the other side, so the effect is just not as strong. However, the benefit of the Pinstadiums is that they light up the entire playfield, do all the GI lighting/dimming and other stuff and do not obstruct your view at all.
They are each fantastic mods in their own right and I highly recommend both. Just depends on if you want the cleaner look and all the added features of the Pinstadiums or the more intense UV visual, slightly more cluttered look and much lower price of the Creeping Death strips.
