Quoted from Rob_G:
How many here have not mylared the sparky magnet? How well is that area holding up? I know mylar on the magnet will get chewed up in probably 50 games, but it would have been nice if Stern put mylar donuts on the game like IM.
Only protection on my Premium is the mantis scoop protector, and a bit of mylar in shooter lane.
nothing around magnets or the ball drop areas. Everything is still fine after owning for a year and 3 months. Have some dimples around the sparky magnet, but that stopped happening when I installed "Rick's" sparky protector, no more air balls up there. I just think people go overkill on these protectors. Key thing is, keep it waxed real good in all high ball traffic areas, replace balls, and keep the magnets level with the playfield. I have experienced having to change out the magnet board (yes it was already a updated board that failed) once and the main CPU board had to be changed, all covered by Stern even after my warranty expired. I had to change the CPU board cuz the sound just all the sudden quit, Chaz at Stern said contact your distributor and we will get you new one. All is well so far, that was 7 months ago.
