Anybody ever use one of these and if so, did it correct the problem?
Thanks!

It cuts down on transient magnetism, noise and stops the metal trough edges from roughing up your balls.

And we sell it at Little Shop of Games too.  8)

Just looked at this, LSOG website info is conflicting. The top paragraph indicates it is for Doctor Who, but listed games below this paragraph do not list DW. And does Doctor Who really need this? I don't  think it has any magnets in it.

Ive had one in my STTNG for years and it works like a charm!  Very good fix for when your trough has divots and balls are not rolling into place.

You are right Dr Who does not need it and was made only for troughs with opto boards. but if your trough has divots causing the ball not to roll down in place in the trough, then this will replace getting a new trough and let the ball roll smoothly into position.  I have used them in both opto and non opto games.

It does not work on old balls, but I guess you can try.

These instructions guarantee your balls will be better off. Hope you can handle the insertion on your own, as I can’t imagine what the shop fee is for this service, as it’s probably best performed in a home setting.

“Install by inserting it into the trough through the trough rear access hole, sliding it under the balls.”
