From what i have seen from Jolt, it is more than welcome to come over and hit through Hannibalito. But be sure to put the lights out and lock the door when youre done. Smile

Seriously though, my flipperarm will get damaged and bent and possibly even ripped apart. But the nastiest spinners in the UK have not been able to do more to the armour than scratch it.

The places it tore was where bolts or armour was suddenly forced up against it, guess it didn't have time to go all stringy. Smile It's the black grade, so maybe there is subtle property differences?

It also happened on one of Nicks old UHMW motor mounts I was using so it wasn't a matter of maybe them selling me dud material. I should take a photo of what happened, a "crack" isn't really what it is, more of a really big tear.
