Anybody else run into this problem: the ball hits the wall of the diverter so hard it bounces back up the ramp, then when the scoop lifts it misses the ball and the ball can go anywhere. How can I deaden the bounce? I tried a thin rubber pad but it hasn't helped.

I have one of their magnets and it works great.

IMHO, every person who owns a TZ should install a magnet on the diverter. Not only does it prevent the ball from bouncing off the diverter, but it also provides a smoother and more consistent dump to the flipper below.

Nothing against the guys at PinpallPro/Decorator Supply, but you can buy those magnets at Radio Shack - about $3.50 for a pack of 5.....

They're only 5.00

Magnet doesn't work on the powerball during multi-ball. Too bad a pad won't do the job.

I agree this mod is cheap and awesome. For some reason after I installed it that scoop hangs up sometimes and diverts all balls to the powerfield. I haven't opened it up to look at it yet. Hopefully an easy fix. I have no idea how you guys with 20-30 pins keep up on the repair! I can say only a hand full of times have all my pins been 100% and error free (7 pins). Granted, by the time I get them error free I tend to want another project and get rid of them.
