What is your favorite K'nex Ball Machine lift type? Answered

     3 years ago, I asked this question to get ideas for lifts in a ball machine I was building. Back then, the spiral lift won (there being only about ten lifts to choose from!). Now that the K'nex ball machine lift roster has septupled, I think it would be fun to see what the response is now. What is your favorite lift, and why?
     It was hard for me to decide, but I think I narrowed my favorite down to the Shifting Arm Lift by Shadowman39 and Tornado96. This is my favorite lift because it is fairly compact, easy to extend, and just fun to watch! My decision was also influenced by the fact that I've built this lift and it worked quite flawlessly.
     A close second is sandroknexmaster's Falling Arm Lift. The effect of this lift is amazing.
     So, I've told my favorites: What are yours? :-)

Note: Here is a list of most of the current lifts for those who for some strange reason haven't seen it yet.

hmm. The lift I like the most is the Alternating Arm Lift by Shadowman and Tornado.

It makes me think, did Tornado quit on K'nex....

He was building a roller coaster and posting it on SSC, but I haven't talked to him since September so I'm not sure what he's up to nowadays.

My facorite lifts in my short history of ball machine building are chain lifts and push lifts. Nothing eccentric.
