Pretty straight forward. What slope / incline / pitch do you set your MM and MMR playfield at?

And why?

There is info on this scattered around but no detailed reports or discussion. People even measure it differently so these comments are helpful as well.

I included a poll for poll lovers.

Any help appreciated.

Factory set, bubble is across lower 2 lines and just over the second one.

I personally go 6.5 because that's what they're made for, or at least what they tell you it should be.

I found 7.1 to play best on my original.... dont go by bubble bc it varies pin to pin...

Thx for the feedback so far. I think I initially set mine at 7.1 degrees. The smoothest pin I own.

Still, I'd like to see what people are doing and why.

Lots of MMs out there. Keep it coming. Any info appreciated.

Here's a photo to confuse things...

So where would you say the true 6.5 is?

It will be perfect when it plays how you like it regardless of what the level tells you.
I had mine at 6.5 for ages but the ball would hit the slings after a loop return.
I raised the back levellers a couple of turns and it plays much better.
I didn't bother getting the level out again as it plays better and that is the aim rather than a number on a level.
