I've had my Super Chexx for about 10 years or so. Home use only, single owner. It was actually stored for about 6 or 7 years after my divorce until I had my new house and basement finished.
I just realized yesterday that Super Chexx Pro existed. Is it worth upgrading? Selling mine and buying a Pro?
If not my wife is an artist and I'm going to have her paint my players for me. I've seen some other mods out there (I like the boards that go all the way around) and am hoping to get a little more info without breaking the bank. I don't want to spend a ton on little addons that add up to the difference in buying a Pro. I hate the sound on mine and was always hoping they'd fix it and make it better quality, but it doesn't seem like they have unless I'm unaware. The sound sucks on mine. (I'm guessing all Super Chexx sound the same).
I'd be happy to get any advice or tips or anything.
I'm kind of in the same boat as you. On the fence about trading up from a Super Chexx Coin Op to a PRO.
It is a fair chunk of money to acquire but if you get a good price for your used one, that will help with replacement cost.
The Pro has only been available for a year or so now so hopefully bugs and engineering changes have been made. There are many editions to choose from from base red/blue to NHL licensed editions with NHL teams of your choosing. The newest players now have clear bumper tube leg warmer on post leg to protect from paint chips.
The sounds, lighting, electronics and score board have been upgraded. Check out YouTube videos to see. I believe it's worth the extra money for all these upgrades and having a new machine to boot that will be supported longer.
