I'm looking to purchase a set of yellow "W" logo lightning flippers. If you have a set you'd sell, drop me a line. Thanks.

#2 5 years ago

Nobody have yellow W logo lightning flippers or the DW side ramp? I both e-mailed and called Pinball Inc. to see if they'd sell the ramp separate but they aren't calling or e-mailing back.

#3 5 years ago

They won't sell the ramps separately. I need the top 2, but you gotta buy the whole set.

Rick at BAA has said he is working on decent repro lightning flippers, but no ETA.

If I needed two of the 3 it's not the end of the world, but only needing one kinda sucks.

Anyone just need the W ramp? PM me and we'll split down the middle. The person who pays for shipping gets to keep the subway ramp.

Might want to PM Rick. Whenever a thread comes up, he always says in progress.

I know I need a set for my DW as well. The old repros were garbage and broke constantly.

#8 5 years ago

I did and never got a response.

#9 5 years ago

Last I heard, Rick is going to produce them but is still working it out. I don't mind a used set.

Still looking for yellow W logo lightning flippers.

#11 5 years ago

I would like a new fresh set for my BSD as well!!

#13 5 years ago

Thanks for the link, but those do not have then "W" logo.

Avoid the current remake ones, as they tend to break very quickly.

#15 5 years ago

i confirm...we need those

#16 5 years ago

I'd still buy them and try them. For a few bucks, even if the odds are low, I'd roll the dice.

I've heard this a lot so I put a couple sets on some games: monster bash, avengers, and cactus canyon. They've had a few hundred plays each and are holding up well. Anyone know how many plays until these are supposed to break?

#22 5 years ago

I don't, but I can't even find yellow remakes out there, I can't find anything. Where are they?

I've had no problems with the ones from Germany, but they don't come in yellow. The last run of yellow ones that BAA sold years ago were definitely bad. I bought a pair from someone who had them lying around, and they broke in a matter of days, but I knew that was a risk when I bought them. They felt different than any other flipper bat; they felt waxy.

Edited because I somehow missed this. Thanks Rick!

Well. I just paid for a pair of original W logo yellow lightning flippers. Hopefully Rick takes his time adding them to the BAA store or else I'm going to feel bad.
