New Pinball Dictionary: Live Catch


Live Catch

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

When performed correctly, it is an impressive display of timing because it requires the player to judge exactly when the ball will reach the end of stroke point of the flipper. If the player is successful, the ball will stop on the flipper as if it were magnetised to it.
