A term used to describe various kinds of flipper errors, especially on occasions where the player would usually be able to control the ball, but somehow does not.


  • A ball rolling off the edge of a flipper only to have the player panic and flip both flippers at once. Such that the ball ends up getting knocked down the middle by the opposite flipper.
  • A post pass attempt that doesn’t quite make it across to the opposite flipper, which then results in a situation like the one above.
