We're getting down to the final adjustments on a Gigi. I have the playfield pitched at 5 degrees which gives the game a pretty good speed. The game is level side to side. My difficulty is in adjusting the left and right side metal guides at mid-playfield - see pics. Although they appear to be bent at about the same angles, the right consistently tosses the ball to the left flipper, but the left is less consistent, often throwing the ball right down the middle.

So the questions are: is there a reliable way to adjust the guides to direct the ball to either flipper? And are they supposed to be set up to throw the ball to the flipper on the same side or the opposite side? Any pictures of your setup might help, too.

Thanks in advance!

The videos I've seen show them direct the ball towards the opposite flipper. Just bend it out slightly.
