    I know there are threads but I need a quicker answer please?
    The family wants a new Metallica premium.
    Before I buy a premium over a pro
    Can someone tell me if the hammer ball lock problem been resolved?
    Last post I found was years ago.
    Thank you

    There were problems at first but Syern released a new board for the hammer magnet. No major. issues after board replacement. Very rarely hammer not working correctly. Before . it was very frequent. I bought my premium in 2013 . Revised board was the solution.

    I would think newer Metallica’s would have the revised board. I sent original to my distributor and received improved one.

    Ok so, the premium is the way to go?
    Thank you very much for your input!

    I have a first production Premium and never regretted it! But yes, there were some hammer magnet issues back then. If you buy a new one, you should have the "revised" board. I'd go with Premium.

    Love My premium. Fun game. Especially if you like the band.

    Powered subwoofer is really something on this game.

    Thank you! I’m not a huge fan of the band . I like a handful of songs. I do like the pinball machine very much though. I’ve played the pro and premium a descent amount.

    Every Prem I played the hammer never worked 100% including my LE. Sold it and bought a pro and never regretted it

    Definitely not 100% but mine is about 98%. I’m good with that. Cool toy.

    Wow ....... it only miss’s 2 times out of 100 hits on the lock shot. I’d go back to a Prem if I could see one do that

    Mine hammer works perfectly, i bought the game in 2018. The premium is definitely worth the extra money imo but the pro is great also if you wanted to save a few bucks.
