My playfield damage. Not sure what I should do about it. Suggestions?

A day of highs and lows.
Got GC with 90m but the snake lost a fang

I was wondering why I've only heard a fraction of the callouts

Quoted from tomdotcom:

I think this is it, from another thread...

That post coming in from the back board is way above where the ball travels.
It's the playfield post that deflects

On mine, a left orbit shot is slowed by the post and trickles into the pop bumpers

On rare occasions it does shoot back down the left orbit, when the ball is traveling will a lot of speed.

Finally got combo champion last night with 23. Well until the next update anyway.

Btw, the drop target problem with them not going down has improved for me after a breakin period.

Anyone know if there is an easy way to change the bulb in the cross? Mine is out.
Looks like there is a clasp below and 3 screws up top. Had to replace both slingshot spot lights already too.

One of mine is out. What's the replacement part?

They are #555's in the spotlights

I replaced the balls in my Pro with high-gloss carbon core pinballs. It plays way different now. The super skill shot trick to the mystery hole doesn't work anymore. Haven't had an airball off the slings yet, and I would get at least one a game with the old set of balls. It plays a lot faster but I haven't had a "good" game yet with these balls.

Anyone else try high-gloss carbon core balls and way in with their thoughts on them?

I also put them into my BSD and they don't seem to affect game play in the same way as with the Met Pro.

These are the ones I put in - http://www.canadapinballparts.com/storefront/index.php?p=product&id=251&parent=0

Quoted from flashburn:

Everyone should be using carbon core balls. Even the crappy stock ones are. You don't want to be using steel core balls in games with magnets.

Sorry, I guess I didn't focus on the right thing. It's the Premium Ultra-Gloss carbon core pinballs that are available at Pinball Life as well. Switching to those have had a big effect on game play.
