So, I've been thinking a lot about putting a center post on my 1961 Aloha. Before you start hemming and hawing about how there are no outlanes and I'm lucky to even have flippers, let me tell you why. First of all, I love this game, but even I am frustrated that you only get a few shots at hitting the ball at best - the gap it just too big. How do I know? Well, I did some investigating. You know what I found? A lot of modified Gottlieb pinballs from this same era (1961-66). Yes, I found photos of Aloha with center posts addedbut I also found Gaucho's with side posts (not center) Oklahoma Rack-A-Ball and, yes, even Slick Chick - which already has bumper extensions under the flippers What does all of this mean? It means a lot of other people think the gap between the flippers in the early 60's Gottlieb machines was WAY too big! The other reason I am considering it is more practical - I like playing pinball and would like to play each ball longer (so would my friends who play this game). So, here is the moment of truth. Do you think it's ok to add center posts to games with a large gap between the flippers on these early machines? Please use the poll options to answer and post your photo with a center post if you have one.
