Repair and Maintenance Tips

Voodoo Glass, Invisaglass, and Stern HD Pinball Glass Compared

  • Voodoo Glass ($249.95) – https://cointaker.com/products?keywords=Voodoo

  • Jersey Jack Invisaglass ($239.99) – http://store.jerseyjackpinball.com/Accessories/Standard-Playfield-Invisiglass.html

  • Stern HD Glass ($239.99) – https://shop.sternpinball.com/products/high-definition-playfield-glass

  • Voodoo Glass and Invisaglass are marked when Stern HD glass doesn’t give any indication that it isn’t like standard glass.

  • The anti-reflective coating does have a green or purple tint to it that can be seen if you shine a white light directly on it.  Standard glass will reflect back white.

  • Cleaning: DON’T USE AMMONIA BASED PRODUCTS.  Instead use only water or a water/alcohol mix.  Use a microfiber cloth for a dry wipe down first.  Then, use a damp microfiber to wipe the glass.  Finally, use a dry microfiber to dry off and remove streaks.

  • Conclusion: Jersey Jack Invisaglass slightly wins out with Stern HD and Voodoo Glass as comparable alternatives.  All of them improve visibility and reduce glares.
