Installed V3s in my Lightning's center 3-bank so far (waiting for new decal set too). That's the horrible bricker bank in this game, the ball just murders it.

It's fixed, I can't make these targets brick. Amazing. It's actually weird to see these center drop targets go down *every* time I hit them.

We have the V4’s at the arcade and used them all weekend at YEGPIN Pinball and Arcade Park Expo. They are excellent, have them installed in Stars and Trident with zero issues to date.

I need drop targets for a 1978 Stern Stars. Any help would be appreciated.

A small update on these targets:
I have the following stock
v3's x 33
v4's x 0

Due to pinball pricing ever increasing and my mod sales slowing down alot, I just can't afford to have stock of 75-100 of each target type sitting in stock at all times hoping for sales.

I will now change it to:
- take names and quantities that they desire
- when I hit 50 targets on order from people of a particular version out of the 75 target minimum order I will place the order
- then I will send out your targets 2 weeks later after ordering.

I am sorry for the inconvenience, but if you want any targets send me a PM with name, address and quantity and once I get 50 I will order 75 of that target type. I do ask that please stay committed to those targets ordered as I don't want to be lumped with alot of stock.

regards

I just want to comment that I put these in my stars on the right drop bank and kept the originals on the left and no one could tell which is which after several hundred plays at a show.

Much Much better than the bricking repros I had in there

thanks heaps for the feedback.

I still am working on my 'Stars' cabinet but should start the playfield soon... Can't wait! Thanks again

#168 3 months ago

Anyone using these in a heavy use setting? How are they holding up?

#169 3 months ago

I have the V4's setup on our Stars at the arcade. I am sure the game has had over 2,500 plays on them since install from YEGPIN show and at the arcade since. I don't have a counter to tell but we go through a ton of plays as our facility is free play. The drop targets have held up perfectly and glad I spent the money on them as they play good and are very durable. In a home setting you may never have to change them out again.

Got the V3s installed the other day. They are working perfect--no bricking, they drop everytime, and all the targets fully reset and latch without fail.

Very happy with them!

My Meteor luckily still has all of its original targets and they work like a charm.

But I'm interested in picking up a set of these to future proof my game.

For those of you who have replaced your drops, how difficult of a job is it? I've never needed to dig into the drop target assembly for older Sterns and it seems like it could be a finnicky mech to deal with.

I wouldn't call it difficult per se, but it is fairly time-consuming. Lots of steps to disassemble and reassemble the mechanism. Since the drops are game controllable, there are a number I extra bits compared to a standard drop target mech.

But that being said, I didn't find it too hard to do, and I made the target swap with most of mech still attached to pf.

I suppose it depends quite a bit on how comfortable you are with pinball repair and maintenance in general.

I'm about a 3/10 in terms of pinball specific stuff. But usually have no issues disassembling and re-assembling mechanical things. Also have some friends up here who are much more skilled than I am.

Luckily the current drops are in amazing shape and work really well. So maybe its just a case of "don't fix what isn't broken"

@Jady

Do you have any V3 targets available? I need a bunch, as I have 6 classic Sterns

Hey ita47
I have the following in stock:
- 10 x v3's
- 58 x v4's

v4's just have the back of the target face fully filled in, from the players perspective you would not know which is which. v3 is on the left and v4 on the right.

I won't be getting more v3's unless someone orders a larger order and pays in advance as like to to clear what I have in stock preferrably.

cheers

Jady

Just ordered 75 - v3 drop targets from Jady, enough to do all my classic Sterns as well as two of my dad's. Jady's communication has been top notch so far. I'm really looking forward to no more bricked shots! Now to buy or make all the target faces.
