Hi! I was going to do a flipper rebuild on my Stars. I usually only replace the parts that are worn. In this case I definitely need new flipper bats, plungers, coil stops at the minimum. I was pricing out the full rebuild kit and PBL has it at $50 + $20 for the 2 new flipper bats.
So that is about $70.
I saw in Vid's guide he recommends upgrading to more modern williams/bally style flippers https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/vids-guide-to-upgradingrebuilding-flippers/page/3#post-773618
I get the two full kits for about $80 + $10 for the new flipper bats and I am at $90 and have all new more modern super snappy flipper mechs. One of the flipper plates in my machine is cracked, but screwed into he PF so it seems to work, but getting rid of that is a plus as well.
So the question is will this game play weird or feel too different with the more modern mechs? Am I better off just rebuilding the current flippers?
