    My all time favorite em. One of the greats and a ripper bg although super spin is a little better - the 2 player version

    Might want to drop the spring tension back one notch on the vari-target. Very rare that target didn't have a tad more tension added by the operator so the ball could never score the specials. I'm no purist but I do believe every feature should work as intended. I loved the vari-target mechanism Gottlieb come up with but pretty much every machine, not just Jet or Super spin, with one that scored a special by a good solid hit I ever played or worked on always had that one extra turn of spring tension to prevent that from ever happening.
    I had a Super Spin and found it pretty much bullet proof once set up right. A very enjoyable game when Gottlieb were top of the pile and reliability had a lot to do with that.

    Score reel rebuilds arn't that bad as long as you have the spare parts needed to do it.

    For a game without drop targets, this is a favourite of mine. Two great Gottleib features - vari target and roto target.

    Wanted: Aquarius backglass, any Gottlieb EM bits and pieces - nothing is junk to me
