Not sure how you feel about the PRO, I went from a MOPLE to a PRO and dont miss it in the least.... Great game either way

I said it once and I'll say it again....... Go with the PRO. I had a MOPLe and no matter what anyone tells you the magnet does not grab the ball all the time. Went down to a pro and dont miss the hammer even slightly.

Quoted from tron1969:

Maybe it was just your LE? my premium grabs the ball every time -

Funny , I played other premiums that people told me the same thing..... magnet would grab ball only about 75 % of the time or less.

Heres a recent video of gameplay. Only watched the begining but on the first lock is lit he hit it twice and did not lock the ball . Dribbles out the snake and it grabs the lock... Works great. I sure if I watch the whole thing and other videos you will see the same thing.

Interesting I have played several machines and that's not my experience

Must differ from the video I posted . Many say the exact same thing. You must have gotten the exception .

And another example.

Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

My Premium's coffin magnet definitely does NOT grab the ball 100% of the time. But that's okay for me as it's just part of the challenge of locking a ball. Just like shooting the snake shot; you have to hit it right.
The payoff of seeing and hearing the hammer slam down on the ball and drive it into the coffin below is that much more of a sweet reward. LOVE it!

Thank you, at least someone agrees Im not crazy. But to me it was a PITA when having a great game. Also with all the issues of magnet boards going bad , was reason enough to make me switch.
