Since Dan & I are huge fans of Transporter The Rescue - we decided we should remake the unobtainium upper playfield flipper. For those that have Transporter - there has been no alternative part as the upper playfield flipper has a longer shaft than the primary playfield flippers. Oddly, when the part was available - we noticed the important groove & C-clip that is key to keeping the flipper from dragging on the upper playfield - was missing. We solved that....our flipper is made of ASA-strength material and has been re-designed to reinforce strength and durability. It comes in black, but can be painted any color you like - especially yellow! The shaft is cut to proper length and has the groove & C-clip in place! Just PM us! $25 shipped in the U.S.!

Is this 3-D printed or cast? Why not make it in yellow? Painted flipper bat seems like a problem waiting to happen, what type of paint are you using? Rattle can?
Thanks

These are 3D printed....although re-designed for strength.....We found that variations in yellow - due to fade and various NOS replacement color variants - made matching flipper bats tricky - and would rather put it in the hands of owners to match the flipper color. The owners can paint however they choose - we have used rattle can and a follow up clear-coat - works fantastic on the flippers we use and sell ( this isn't the only flipper we sell). We've had our upper flippers on SOF and Transporter now for several months.....and have sold many with no concerns...

Would you sell just the shaft with the groove? I'd want to cast a bat myself for this Would be nice to have a backup.
Thanks for taking the time to do this, cool to see people making what they need.
