Like most others, the magnasave on this game is cool, but seemingly useless...

Until I started using it to hit the Final Draw Scoop. Seems to hit it just great! Generally I have a hard time starting multiball by hitting that scoop. The magnasave sets up a great shot at it.

Just my 2 cents.

It is definitely an afterthought. I find myself trying to use it about a second or two after the ball drains usually. You really have to consciously think about it and almost want to use and find an excuse to just use it to make it work.

Sometimes I can use it during a stdm drain to move the ball just enough to the left to get a slap save in. But yeah, mostly use it to get control and take a shot at the scoop.

the button is too far from the flipper button, most magna save buttons are closer. The magnet is also too weak, so other then maybe helping prevent SDTM, never found much use for it. After a while I forgot it was there since I never used it.

My daughter's bf is an expert at using the magnasave on WCS. I've watched him play and I'm always impressed at how many times he is able to save a ball from draining by using it. He has all of the WCS high scores here, too. Not a coincidence, I'd say. On the other hand, I've never mastered the magnasave. I either use it when I didn't really need it, or forget to use it when it's the last/best option.
