I wanted to share a quick tip/mod I did for my Cyclone Pinball. I re-built the flippers for the game changing out everything. It gave me of course nice strong flippers but maybe a bit to strong. If I hit the right flipper too hard for the Comet Ramp, my ball would sometimes fly off the back corner of the ramp and hit the Ferris Wheel. Kind of a bummer for gameplay if the ball is launching off the ramp. I had to figure out a way to make that ramp higher to keep the ball in play. If anyone else is having the same issue, this is what I did and it works perfectly. I took the clear plastic collar ring used to keep the collar firm from a brand new dress shirt and trimmed it down a bit. Then I just taped it inside the outer curve of the Comet ramp that goes in front of the Ferris Wheel. Low and behold, the ball never ever flies off the ramp! No matter how hard it is hit, the ball stays on the Comet ramp and completes the shot. And the nice part about it is that its practically invisible. Unless I point it out, no one knows that it is there. It blends right in. So that's my little quick mod I wanted to share. I hope if anyone else has this issue that you can use this mod to fix the problem. Good luck!
