Quoted from RichieWrench:

I AM CALM!!!!!! (lol)
I do support JJP, But this I do not support this serious issue and taking a stand. This is not like JJP has been upfront on this and like Hey were sorry but here is a populated playfield to make up for this - I did my homework and TRUST ME - It was not easy for me to email JOE and tell him that I am out on my #12. I read alot of posts (ALOT) and have talked to those close to this and looked at the time frames and what was being done.
JJP is wrong as a company and they need to do the right thing - They should have done it from the start. But lets hope they will learn from this and fix the problem and move on to other games - Because if not, They are losing customers. I am just one and I am sure I will not break them on my sales - but as a whole they are hurting themselves.

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

If regulations surrounding the types and amounts of chemicals that can be used are negatively impacting playfield quality isn't it time for Stern and JJP to consider dumping wood playfields altogether in favor of a composite alternative? There's a few examples of pins being made over the years using composite playfields that have held up extremely well.
If a high quality playfield alternative became the norm and issues such as severe dimpling, clear chipping, clear pooling, etc went away would anyone really care if the playfield wasn't made out of wood? I wouldn't.

Isn’t Deeproot working on an alternative playfield? I’ve heard rumors that it will have a plastic type material? Anyone else hear anything?

If these defective playfields are the “new normal” I will never buy another pin from JJP.

Quoted from o-din:

The way I see it is if anybody that has read any of these threads or knows about these issues from either company and buys another new game and ends up with the same issues, he or she has nothing to complain about and the only person at fault is him or herself.

The only way this playfield situation truly gets resolved is by customers not buying another nib pin until things get fixed. It’s a big risk to buy one of the current nib pins from stern or JJP. You could get a perfect playfield or you can have issues- I don’t want to take that risk-

Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

Agreed. Just common sense. I am buying a super Chexx Pro instead.

Great decision! I just bought a used super chexx a few weeks ago!
