Picture 1

This board is a complete redesign of the flipper board found in all Williams/Bally games that use the Fliptronics system with Type 1 or Type 2 flipper boards. These include games as early as Getaway High Speed 2 and Twilight Zone, all the way through later WPC 95 games like Medieval Madness and Cactus Canyon!

On many of the games that we've seen re-imported or coming off route, invariably the original flipper boards are in poor shape, or missing altogether! Over time, the plastic interruptors, (as used on the Type 2 boards seen below) warp or break. The optos get dirty and need cleaning. The boards themselves get hacked from poor repair jobs.

We set about to not only solve these fundamental design problems, but also to add in new features that just aren't possible in the original factory design! The result is something completely revolutionary!

One of the exclusive features on this board is the adjustable tension of the spring steel actuator. The tension is adjustable from light to pretty stiff! The pictures above show the board configured for a "factory" feel. By moving the screw up or down, the button action can be made stiffer or lighter to your liking!

Another feature is the adjustable double-flip action! This action allows a player to operate lower and upper flippers independently by half-pressing the flipper button. With the factory boards, this action was not adjustable. With the new board, the delay between the flip can be adjusted, even eliminated (or reversed!).
