Wow, a broken scoop, never seen that before.
Oh, wait! Maybe on just about every game w a scoop.
Actually the metal they use is thicker gauge than the old B/W stuff.
Operating commercially, I would suggest your friend find a welder.
Fwiw, my deadpool scoop is fine, thousands of plays, and when it breaks, I'll get it welded.

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Checkout post #53 from the thread that CPR made. $12 a playfield is why newer Stern playfields are dimpling more severely. $12 on a product Stern has regularly raised prices and lowered quality.

Well, he said the veneer they add, is $12 more, then later throws out square foot prices that Aren't playfield wood prices.
It actually is a good read about playfields, but does not say Stern gets $12 PFs.

Quoted from guymontag451:

we buy plenty of modern Sterns and operate them all over town easily and reliably. You can hate them if you want to, but your assertion that arcades must struggle with bad Stern build quality is patently false. We have always had no major problems other than normal maintenance on them.

Plus one to this. It’s simply amazing how bad they get picked apart here.
Lots of Stern games out there with 10,000’s of plays on them, and nothing but broken wires and wear on the assemblies.
