    It's a pattern now....get a game, then order the Cliffy protectors. I just placed an order last night, then made a p.i.t.a. out of myself by adding more to it. Cliffy has consistently been crazy fast at responding to emails and shipping his product. He is a huge asset to the hobby, providing something that I have come to turn to on almost every game. Colored post sleeves have taken over for me too
    Thanks, Cliffy- your customer service and useful stuff is much appreciated!

    #2 4 years ago

    Cliffy is indeed quite the asset to our hobby. Every single machine I own has multiple items made by Cliffy (protectors and post sleeves).

    #3 4 years ago

    Huge thumbs up from me. His post covers are second to none and hold up well on location games.

    #4 4 years ago

    I agree also,he is a huge asset.
    Buy a game,add all the Cliffy stuff.

    Cliff is da man!

    #6 4 years ago

    ive also bugged Cliffy on some ID4 protector lovin'.... hes on it..

    great guy.. its people like this, that make it a super hobby to be a part of.

    #7 4 years ago

    Fast, friendly, and high quality. I'm shocked when I buy games that aren't fully cliffy'd, but it never takes long to remedy that!

    #8 4 years ago

    Had a similar experience just recently. I know he is overwhelmed with orders, both a blessing and a curse. Yet he filled my order quickly, and took time to exchange a few friendly emails. Great all around guy, excellent product.

    We need people like Cliff to help negate the JPops and Kevin Kuleks ...

    A Cliffy is a thin piece of metal that is designed to protect a specific area of a pinball machine or hide existing wear. They are custom fabricated to fit specific machines. For example, the first picture shows the typical wear at the turbo VUK on I500. The second photo shows the area after installing the Cliffy. They are called "Cliffys" because the guy who makes them is named Cliff.

    Order enough stuff and get a free shirt! Cliff is great!

    #13 4 years ago

    When I got my Dredd it had a ramp protector on it that I assumed was oem. I referred to it as a "Factory Cliffy" until I found out he made it.

    #14 4 years ago

    Cliffy= good guy

    #15 4 years ago

    I do wish he'd set up a checkout cart system on his website I like to spontaneously order

    Cliff is busy as it is. I think having to fill a bunch of orders rather than filtering them through his available time might kill the guy!

    #18 4 years ago

    Every game needs Cliffy's eh. Awesome guy...awesome products.

    #19 4 years ago

    Ohh ok.... I'll have to order some. I know Funhouse would take one... Does T2?

    I ordered & received all red post protectors for my T2 & matching one's for the Funhouse. The wife & I will be installing them this wknd.

    #20 4 years ago

    Cliffs a cool cat for sure. It's great to have a way to prevent playfield wear on the pins we love so much! So easy for negativity to take over a forum it's refreshing to hear some positive words. Thanks for the post.

    not only those, but his colored sleeves are cool too, and add a nice touch to games. get rid of the generic black worn ones.

    #22 4 years ago

    It's cool to see threads like this, I'm lucky to call Cliffy my friend and I think his success is well deserved. He works really hard to turn out a quality product for us collectors.

    #23 4 years ago

    I just emailed him. Got a response in like 5 minutes. Dam good service.

    #24 4 years ago

    Yep,just placed an order for 5 games.
    He is super busy right now.

    He is on it though

    #25 4 years ago

    +1 cliff rocks!

    #26 4 years ago

    I've shouted out to Cliffy so many times I've lost my voice! ; )

    Once again,thanks for all you do for the hobby and as a human being.

    #27 4 years ago

    Cliffy, Cliffy, he's our man,
    If he can't do it, no one can!
    Attaboy laddie!

    +1 for Cliffy! I have Cliffy's on all my games. Great products and great service, that's hard to find these days.

    I just emailed him. Got a response in like 5 minutes. Dam good service.

    Hmmm, I sent an e-mail 4 days ago and a and PM 2 days ago without a response. Am I missing the secret handshake? Waiting to start my WCS teardown and looking to get the protector set.

    I'll wait another day or two in case he's backlogged I guess.

    #30 4 years ago

    I didnt know any secret handshake and he responded to my first email in an hour.
    He said yes, he had the item but was out of town for a pinball show so it might be a few days. I then got an invoice that was sent at 1am and then the part a few days later. Very pleased with the level of service

    #31 4 years ago

    I just called him to let him know he may have missed you Mike, had to leave a message. I know he's heavily backlogged at the moment.

    #32 4 years ago

    Thanks for the help - he e-mailed me a few minutes ago. All set!

    #33 4 years ago

    Cliffy is the patron saint of playfield preservation.

    #34 4 years ago

    My name is Mike, and I'm a Cliffaholic.

    #35 4 years ago

    I placed another order today and let him know about this thread. Maybe there will be a Cliff sighting on pinside!

    #36 4 years ago

    Terrific service from a great guy. Should be in the Pinball Hall of Fame.

    #37 4 years ago

    Amen. Fellow Cliffy addict.

    #38 4 years ago

    Yep ive ordered for every pin thats passed threw my place .great product and awesome guy

    #39 4 years ago

    Need the Cliffys done for Americas Most Haunted!!! I saw at the showdown this past month some wear on their sample game hole(obviously been played to death but still). I know KT indicated they were working on it with him but I'd hate to see people's games get damaged without them.

    #40 4 years ago

    You guys are too much, I'm blushin'! I do apologize for getting in so deep that I'm not able to make and ship same day like I used to but I am catching up.
    Bryan, as for AMH I can say I *just* bought a playfield from Charlie and it arrived a couple days ago so yeah, I'm on it SOF ramp pros first, KISS scoop in cutting now and a couple others in drawing stage.

    I sincerely appreciate the shout out. It really keeps me energized! I'm blessed to have some very talented and helpful friends in this hobby and one of these days I'll give a shout out to each one. For now the biggest shout out I can give is to Robin for creating this forum so many years ago. I felt honored when he asked me to join up back in 2004 and I'm even more proud of him today for having kept this place going in such a positive direction. Three cheers for Robin and huge thanks to all of you guys and dolls!

    Oh, crap! You just reminded me I have to send you a payment!

    #43 4 years ago

    Cliff rocks! I have Cliffys on every game that I own.

    #44 4 years ago

    That Cliffy. So hot right now. I buy everything he has for every game I ever get. Never a dollar better spent. And as a bonus he is also awesome!!
    Kudos and thanks Cliffy for everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
