New Concept - Adjustable Flippers
« on: March 30, 2015, 06:02:11 AM »
An interesting idea to make a game harder or easier with adjustable flippers for those that want to setup something different, though sure not for 99% of people. They need to be undersized and then be able to stretch out to maybe 1/4" over the longest known length.

Apart from not being able to read another language the video was pretty easy to understand.  %$%
I was hoping/ thinking it was an extension flipper, say 2" to 3"
Imagine playing FT with 2" flippers- gnarly
If it isn't broke, it isn't pinball.

Why - for someone who is getting into pins these are a great idea.  Start extended and move them back as your skills improve.  For family gatherings I am sure they would appreciate a smaller gap @@*

Certainly better than the usual option of putting a post between the flippers !!!

I think they would look pretty cool on a futuristic / robotic themed machine like... The Machine - T2 - JM - etc etc
