Quoted from TomGWI:
Really? Maybe I have a board issue then with the magnet board.
Maybe I am wrong too. I do not own it, this is just how the one plays at the watering hole I frequent. Maybe I am just lucky with this one.
I think the situation could be much improved by tweaking the timing of the pulses. That being said, a ball saver for a few seconds would work for sure.
For the ball on the magnet thing. I have found that waiting until you see the ball move slightly (magnet doing something) , hitting both flippers will release the ball with a slight left-right movement.
Having a shaker motor helps a lot. Waiting until it releases itself seems to be the best way to get a drain.
