I've restored many 100s of playfields, and I always tell people, "If there is a CPR available, buy it"

It does not make much sense to pay $800-900 to restore a playfield that can be bought for $599 from CPR.

The CPR will look amazing with it's crystal clear inserts and bright colors and whites.

Some of the German made playfields are infamous for having their slings miss-dimpled, but if you know that is a problem, then double check your positioning before you mount your slings. If you already mounted them, then fill the holes with bamboo skewers and move the sling brackets back. No big deal.

Quoted from indypinhead:

I've yet to buy a PF from CPR at that price.

Space Shuttle, Joker Poker and SBM were all $599 last time I bought them.

I think only the ones with non-standard inserts or expensive licenses were more.

Quoted from fosaisu:

Looks like most games going forward are $699 and up (with a few older ones still at $599).

Joker Poker is a resent release and it's $599

Meteor is an upcoming release and it's $599

Playfields with expensive licenses, expensive inserts, or small runs are going to cost more.

I'd rather pay $650 for the next run of Xenon, than spend 30 hours fixing up an old, yellowed one.
