New Pinball Dictionary: Tip Pass

Tip Pass (AKA Rolling Pass, Flick Pass)

A flipper move that is used to pass the ball across the gap from one flipper to the other. This move is used when the ball is moving too quickly to be controlled on the original flipper, but not quite fast enough to reach the other flipper without assistance.

This move prevents the ball from draining down the middle and usually gives the player control of the ball.
