Does anyone have any suggestions about upgrading the flipper mechs in a Xenon?

Could i replace with fliptronics style mechs - and coils?
Or replace the mechs and use similar coils?

I definitely feel more power would be better but also i feel
that if i put the flippers in from my Addams, i'd destroy the machine
with the ball.

Vid's got the lowdown. I would first be certain that I have done everything possible to make the existing design work perfectly, then if still desired move into modification. Perhaps Xenon owners can chime in on the pros & cons, such as damage that could be caused from overdoing it.

I just did mine. search for replacing xenon flippers. They have a little more power. So far I haven't broken any plastics. G.L. Joe

Those Bally Linear flippers are crap.

If you just want to add **a little** extra jism to your pool linear flippers, rebuild them into conventional:
