Okay - you got me there. Out of curiosity I looked up the diagram on the Frontier playfield. Low and behold - flippers aligned ABOVE the ball guides!!!!

I hope no one is using that Strikes and Spares drawing to align their flippers.

I don't think anyone is being malicious or trying to start a shitstorm - just bantering about game setup. I've had this ongoing argument with friends for years.

I see people asking this question pretty frequently here.

Everything that Stu and CPR do for pinball is fantastic. As he said - align your flippers however you want.

Easier traps and more power towards the pops/center of the pf? Alight them to the lane guides (higher).

Tougher traps and more power towards the spinners/outside shots? Align them to the biff bars and "shipping pins".

Very nice. Threads like this inspire me to move on older pins.

LOL, that tiny bit of adjustment isn't going to make trapping with three inch flippers and inlanes any easier or harder. It's not hard to do in the first place.

^^^ - "Raising the flippers won't make it easier to trap" - FTW!

Totally. I didn't mean to throw this thread so far off topic. I think we all agree to disagree. But I'm with the flyer boys on this one - droopy flips 4LYFE.

Awesome job on the restoration Stu, and thanks for all the work you do!
