To lose a ball via the center drain because the ball was travelling so fast and/or in such a perfect line, that there is no way the player could have saved it …

New Pinball Dictionary: Drop Catch

A timing move where the player drops the flipper just as the ball touches it …

New Pinball Dictionary: Inlane Pass / Return Lane Transfer

As the ball is headed down the inlane, it may be moving fast enough such that the player can simply hold the flipper up to allow the ball to carry over to the opposite flipper.

New Pinball Dictionary: Loop Pass

This is a skillful way to bring speedy orbit shots back under control. As the ball is heading back towards the flipper from an orbit, the player drops the flipper just as the ball hits it.

New Pinball Dictionary: Sternament

A tournament that uses only games made by STERN Pinball.

New Pinball Dictionary: Post Pass

Sometimes when a player has a ball trapped on a flipper, they really want it to be on the opposite flipper to attempt a particular shot. One way to accomplish this is to flip quickly so that the ball bounces off of the bottom of the slingshot and over to the other flipper.

New Pinball Dictionary: Live Catch

A live catch occurs when a player successfully stops the ball on an upraised flipper as the ball is heading towards it.

New Pinball Dictionary: Bounce Pass / Dead Flipper Bounce / Dead Flipper Pass
