I have the Markolan on my Getaway and F14. It is a bit thicker than Mylar so you may need to account for that. There was no issues with the Getaway, but I had to adjust some heights on the F14 (switches and the 2 metal plates that the ball drops to in the upper center after launch). The Markolan was a bit higher and would affect the ball path.

I did buy a replacement Mylar sheet for the F14 when I was redoing the playfield, but decided on the Markolan instead as it didn't want to stick more Mylar down after removing what was there originally.

Also the cut outs for F14 could have been a bit "tighter" as the odd time if the ball is going slow enough it could get trapped between the odd post and the edge of the Markolan.

The shooter lane section on the Getaway also had to be modify to work correctly (and taped down at 1 point). The weight of the ball was enough to cause it to move and interfere with shooting the ball and at times with the ball being ejected into the shooting lane.

I would also liked to see it extend a bit further down into the center drain as well (down inside the apron) - did suggest this to the manufacturer, never heard anything back.

I would probably buy it again as it is a decent product and looks awesome when new (does get scratches in it after many plays - which may buff out with Novus), just be aware that it may not be a 100% perfect fit.
