I don’t get the hate for pinstadium lights as a concept, though I completely get the hate for the spam they pump out. It’s ridiculous how often you see their advertisements, especially when searching irrelevant topics!!
I’ve made my own versions which do the same job at a 10th of the price. I love them.
Using “pinstadium” lighting or whatever you want to call them 100% makes a positive improvement. Reduces reflections, boosts contrast and colour saturation and often negates the need or desire for anti-reflective glass. And this works whether the room is dark or light. Gameplay is much easier, all of a sudden you can actually see the ball in areas you previously couldn’t. To me it’s plain to see.
For the $20-$30 it costs to make them, its a no brainer, dial the strength up or down till you’re happy... job done!
