90 minutes away, right?
Quoted from Bublehead:
Summer breeze makes me feel fine... @herbertbsharp... does Balston Spa still have the Sugar Shack restaurant?
LOL I love me some Type O, Munsters got me thinking of Black No. 1. No the Sugar Shack is long gone. It might have been before my time because I don't even know it and I was around in the 90s. Were you living in the area?
Dammit, I'm bumping Type O, watching The Mechanic, eating tacos, partying up and getting ready for the reveal. Then I get the text my wife is coming home in 15 minutes. Party crashed LOL

EDIT: Oops misheard dude on video
Does anyone know if you can stream The Munsters anywhere? I checked Hulu, amazon, & Netflix.
Quoted from westofrome:
How much was Addams selling for new in 1992?
If it was $2900 that's about $5200 in today's dollars. So it's equivalent to a Pro price-wise. Correct me if I'm off on the price, though.
That's just inflation though, that doesn't include economies of scale when you are making 20k units of just one model. They were also making 10s of 1,000's of other models at the same time. I'm sure coils and the like are a lot cheaper when you are buying 300,000+ at a time.
Is there any evidence that a thicker veneer is harder?
Why are people taking the word of a company that basically used the $12 saving crap to deflect anger away from themselves? Remember: the thread that info came out of was about CPR's "meaningless pre-orders". Now people are grabbing the torches and quoting speculative info from a company far less professional and supportive than Stern.

Quoted from vireland:
Damn, there's a serious amount of delusion around here.
From the SAME PARAGRAPH:
"You get a much nicer product and a much denser and tougher PF."
Denser is harder. What? You doubt this is what he meant? Well, then read on...
"We use the best densest hardest custom wood we can get..."
Densest. Hardest. Right next to each other in their own words. Satisfied?
Because NO ONE is saying that CPR puts out an inferior playfield product that craters even the same as a current Stern, let alone worse. No one - because CPR has earned a reputation for playfields that are about legacy hardness and have improved durability compared to the 80's SS originals and similar durability to the original 90's DMD PFs.
The "anger" of that thread (which is a completely separate issue) was due to the way their preorder lists were handled on a couple highly anticipated titles because people were MAD THEY DIDN'T GET AN AWESOME CPR PLAYFIELD they signed up for. If CPR made crap PFs that wouldn't be the case.
Claiming it is the densest doesn't mean it is. It doesn't mean Stern's is inferior, it doesn't provide results of testing. They provided no numbers other than thickness measurements. Thickness does not equal density or hardness. I understand the anger in the thread was about preorders, that was part of my point. My main point is: people are bitching about Stern saving $12 per playfield when the premise is based on speculation from someone who has not tested Stern's playfields, and has little to no knowledge of what actually happens @ Stern.
