    Recently noticed with the onset of winter weather and dry air, my Shadow hits the Khan saucer when holding the upper flipper up after a shadow loop shot. It had done this previously but had not been making it during the Summer. I thought it was due to releveling after moving. Now it hits it no problem.

    Also I sometimes get a ball stuck in the left orbit on MET if it goes up it weakly. No longer a problem at the moment.

    Is the dry air shrinking the wood? Wondering if anyone else has noticed the weather affecting how a pin plays. TS and MET are welcome changes actually!

    I find slight changes in voltage due to AC being on in the house / neighborhood or not can affect coil strength.

    Your not alone. I get phantom scoring on some machines based on humidity.
