Quoted from ZNET:
My vote for the most satisfying shot in pinball goes to. . .
. . .releasing the fire gods on 1972 Fireball, a dead-on strike of the messenger ball, the shot emanating from the right 2 inch flipper, releasing both captive balls.
While I have posted this topic in the EM pinball hangout, I do not mean to limit this inquiry to electromechanical games. Nevertheless, I shall maintain consistency by echoing my nomination for the identical shot in 1985 Fireball Classic, from the right 3 inch flipper. I'm wondering which shots stand out to other pinsiders.
I neglected to mention that the messenger ball shot on Fireball and Fireball Classic also activates the ball gate, which redirects the ball to the shooter lane.
Thus, that shot produces a distinctive ball-to-ball impact sound, followed by the messenger ball's impact with the scoring target at the top of the lane, followed by the release of 1 or 2 captive balls, while diverting the right wotan saucer ball back to the shooter lane.
There's a great deal of consequential ball movement and attendant kinetic sound with the shot, apart from point scoring satisfaction.
