Got my Pro VE delivered Friday night. Set it up by 8 pm and modded til 11 pm....then played until 5 am!
Had stuff ordered so it was ready to go:
- shaker motor
- external sub
- pinbits thunderbolts
- coin taker red/yellow LED flipper buttons
- red plastic protectors
Very happy with the mods. The flipper buttons are a perfect accent to the colors, and I can’t even imagine the machine without the shaker and thunderbolts.
Quality wise, everything was pretty top notch. Play field is glass smooth with no wood grain. It is dimpling a lot, but this is my first modern pinball and from what I’m reading, it’s normal and nothing to worry about. I did find one connector underneath that wasn’t fully clipped in.
FYI build date on this was June 2018. Pretty fresh.
Other than that, I had balls keep getting stuck on the little metal spring thing they added up in the bell lane to prevent drains down the middle. Basically at least one per game, and you had to shake it pretty violently to unstick it, causing a tilt. So, with a couple pairs of needle nose pliers, I re-did the angle of the bend in that thing, and since then have only had one get stuck, in probably 50 games.
