I feel like mine is a bit too high..does it vary by game? Mine is a Balls-A-Poppin. Thanks.

Isn't that built-in with the bottom sides level?

I recently asked Steve Young about this while placing an order. He initially told me that it's a personal preference, then he said that woodrails were designed to play with all leg levelers in, and since that's kind of slow, he likes to have the rear ones about 3/8″ out on his games.

Just went and measured my games.

They range from 4.2 degrees to 4.6 degrees.

They play really well at this pitch. Wouldn't want them 3.5 degrees as they would be too floaty then.

Every game has regular , mostly original flipper coils and at this pitch flippers can get ball back to the top arch so for me this is the sweet spot.
