Pickup: Atari Super Pong Pro-Am Ten

Nice! The Pro-Am Ten is my favorite Atari Pong console. I've got a boxed one but no manual. I like how Atari advertised "Basketball" (aka Handball with the wall dialed down) as a distinct game variation on the box, and that 4 players constitutes a separate game.

It's interesting to me how Atari released so many Super Pong consoles with different combinations of features:
Super Pong - 4 games (5 if you count Basketball/Solitaire), 2 players
Super Pong Ten - same games as Super Pong, 4 players
Super Pong Pro-Am - same games as Super Pong, 2 players, skill switch
Super Pong Pro-Am Ten - Super Pong Ten + Super Pong Pro-Am

Here is a PDF of the manual and the registration card ;-)

Thank you very much for posting that! I've been looking for a scan of this manual for a long time (I think I even posted a topic here once asking about it...no dice, obviously). :)

 

It looks like Atari used the same manual for the both the Pro-Am and the Pro-Am Ten. Never knew that. IIRC they did that with the Ultra Pong and Ultra Pong Doubles as well (which I believe are actually the same exact console with a different box and different number of paddles included, but that's another topic).

My pleasure, glad to share. Thanks for the insights on the similarities of the Pro-Am and Ultra / Doubles documentation.

 

I have an Ultra Pong Doubles, and would be happy to provide images of that and the manual- which I could post in a new thread. It would be fun to compare and contrast. ;)
