Sure. Happy to update! Other then being exhausted from setting up the site for the Super Flux Bulbs....
(they are worth seeing! http://www.cometpinball.com/category-s/1837.htm)
The Op-Max bulbs arrived 2 days ago. We had the pleasure of unpacking and testing with Martin Ayub, editor of Pinball News. We did our testing on a Road show, with 4 other new bulbs, as I have been also trying to help solve the need for brighter GI bulbs and larger lighting throw lengths.
We had lots of good news, some small bad news, and some interesting results.
Even though I will be selling these, I truly want to share with you guys how I see this, objectively, and unbiased.
Having another set of eyes, like Martins', helps tremendously....and watching him play is freakin amazing!.
I am putting together the pictures, and all info so that all these new choices are given fair representation.
In short, not one of the four is a universal solution. We found reasons to chose sometimes a different one,
depending on the need...I guess I should have expected that.
Suffice to say this one bulb, Optix Maximus, (I just like to say that...makes me think I am watching Gladiator)
Does some incredible things in the right place.
One place worth sharing is in then coin door. Does it make the button look better? Hell No!
But on a Stern, you unclip the bulb, turn it around, and you can see the entire interior of the game, like a high end LED flashlight!! A great way to keep a handy flashlight in every game! The whole inside is lit from one Bulb!
You can spot a loose wire or issue fast!
There are a couple of bumps here to improve, but any and all of these, once I can organize it all, will be must haves
for the games you need them!
But the good news, is all the choices work well, cost the same, and are a huge improvement in Sling Shot, Rail, GI, and more....We only had time to try the lower playfield...so I will be at it tonight, and then on Dracula, TZ, etc....
Hang in there with me, I hope to finish in the next day and have all available.
I just really want to do it right, so any drama is avoided if possible.
We will be including them free with orders over $25 as a sample, to get feedback as well.
Just as a heads up, if you are reading this, a Flasher Sale will start on Friday for $.99.
I will be putting up a few thousand pieces, and with 5% being donated to pinside.
Somewhere in all of this I hope to play my WOZ, which will be working soon!
