Quoted from SuperPinball:

Gee 6K for a Nine ball? I though they went for less than half that. Better to grab a new stern pro at that price.

Shoot! My ass was puckering when I paid $1700 USD for my nice one at TPF a couple of years back.

The prices on these things have gone nuts ...

It really is. Never in 20 years would I have thought Stern Electronics games would become a rich man's delight.

I think Nine Ball deserves to be in the same class as the Quicksilvers & Star Gazers, though. It's a unique game that's hard to find in good shape. I looked for a decade and eventually just took the plunge on shipping one that hailrazer was selling in Georgia for $1900. No regrets!

Seawitch blue wave spinner decals?? Can't find these for sale anywhere.... one of last parts I need to finish a resto I'm doing. Anyone know of a source?

There was a pinsider who made some Seawitch blue wave decals. I bought one and it is excellent. But I do not remember the guy's name and don't know if he is still around. And I cannot find the PMs we traded. Sorry.

You might try starting a fresh post for this. You might scare something up.

I have a pretty clean scan, if you want to roll your own. Send me a PM.

Is he selling for the (that symbol) 18,000 or is asking the 18K price?

#2708 15 days ago

Seawitch decals are available from pinsider topwif

He did a great job, mine look good as new after years of use. Highly recommend!

Just got my decal from him, looks great!

#2710 15 days ago

I'm the one that has the Seawitch spinner decals and I just saw this ball gate post, this was my solution. Works flawlessly.

What kind of return spring do you have on that gate? Looks interesting.

#2713 14 days ago

Not sure what spring I used on thàt gate. I think it was something I picked up at Lowe's or it came off a drop target assembly or a flipper assembly.

Anyway you could post a better picture of it? It looks interesting.

Hey Dragonfist fans. I found something interesting today. I was studying the original Dragonfist flyer (yeah, I'm a total pinball geek) and discovered something interesting. In the flyer version of the game, the spinner awarded 1,000 points per lit multiplier, not just 200 like in the production version of the game.

You'll see below a zoomed in version of the flyer playfield and right above the left flipper it says "SPINNER SCORES 1000". The production version says 200.

I think this would have made for an even more exciting game if they left it like this flyer version. I'd be inclined to have the code changed but then it wouldn't match my production playfield.

Quite the observation. Would have needed 8 digit displays with a spinner value like that!

Foil P.A.A. Tournament Decals have been redrawn! Thanks to cottonm4 and getadam for the great references.

Will get these out to print over the next week or so and will check back in when I get samples. Should be fairly cheap if this printer works out.

Please, no PM's until I have the real thing in hand, I'll have plenty to cover whoever wants one

Speaking of PM’s, since I have your attention... I’m still looking for a Nine Ball wink wink nudge nudge.

LOL! I place too many orders after a few drinks. Glad I'm not the only one.

#2725 4 days ago

Technically the stickers would only come on Steve Kirk's games since that was his thing. Is the phone # still Stern's?

Sweet I’ll wait until you do it and bum some from you. I’ll send you a bottle of booze before PATZ.
