    I have 4 different Stern pinball machines. The sling shots on some of them are stronger than the others. Can anyone tell me if there is an adjustment on them that makes them stronger? All the machines are factory rubbers and coils. I have made no changes. Any help from the pinball community would be appreciated.

    Are some of the machines older or much more played than the others? The slings may just need a rebuild.

    Adjusting the switches to make them more sensitive can help too.

    There's a coil strength setting, but it affects all the coils.

    The oldest is AC/DC, Walking Dead, KISS, and Aerosmith. The WD & AC/DC seems to be stronger than the other two.

    Could also be SAM vs Spike in that case
