    The lower left "kick back" on my T2 sends the ball up the totally to the right "chase loop" about 1/3 of the way. Is this correct? Is it possible that it should be "kicked" up the right loop entrance all the way to say, falling into the three top "rollovers" with the green diamonds?
    Thanks

    Mine doesn't make it all the way up to the pops, never has.

    Mine could make it to the pops depending on how fast it went into the outlane

    10-4, it sounds like its working correctly, a kick back all the way up to the top and then into the popbumpers would be a very generous shot .
    Thanks for the response!

    Mine often does make it to the pops. When it doesn't, I'm surprised.

    Mine only makes it up to the pops maybee 10% of the time. Most of the time it rattles around in the orbit about 2/3’s up.

    I know this is an old thread, but I recently purchased a T2 and have some details to share. It was shopped when I bought it, so everything was right and tight. The kickback would send the ball into the top 3 diamond lanes every time. I took this to be a little 'bonus' of the kickback, and expected it every time it fired. Slowly, after 75-100 games, the ball wasn't travelling as far up the 'chase loop'. The coil and kickback lane itself were fine, so I inspected the 'chase loop' lane the ball is sent into. The ball kind of slams into the outer wall of the 'chase loop' when it comes in, and ricochets off the inner rail with enough energy to make it up to the diamond lanes. But I noticed the inner rail looked like it had been replaced and was askew and slightly loose - resulting in a loss of energy to the ball when it bounced up the lane.

    I removed the rail, wrapped some fine tape around each end to 'thicken' the post, and tapped it back in. I also tightened the screws on the outer wall. Voila - it travels back up to the diamond lanes. IMO, this is how the kickback should function.

    Hope this helps.

    Sounds normal if the ball speed to the kickback was fast as well, so yep u r all good
