    Right now there is a growth in all sectors of pinball.
    New companies, amount of new games out & production number of games.
    More games are going on route, more people are coming to the hobby of pinball and awareness is growning.

    I'm bullish on pinball on all fronts at this moment.

    I have 7 pinball machines on route in Jacksonville FL and will have at least 2 more on route by year end.
    There is demand and or acceptance for pinball on route and it's growning.

    New games are decent overall and are selling ok (Stern) well (JJP).
    Used games are getting overhauls and resold in decent shape more than ever.

    As a collector operator, I deal with almost all sectors of this hobby and I'm happy with what I see.

    Yeah, will those that buy a game brand new be happy as hogs about code? hell no
    Yeah, will those that bought games for close to MSRP be happy with resale in short periods of time? nahhh.
    It's the buyer's duty to try before they buy, hell, who buys a new car without test driving it? No you?
    But you then buy a new pinball machine without trying it and then aren't happy? Ding Dong!
