  • Twister Pins Missing/Damaged "Red rings"

    We have 32 GSX lanes with Twister pins throughout the house. Some of these pins are at least 3 years old, many of which are missing at least one of the red rings around the neck of the pin. I was curious if this was because of our machines or just the pins getting old and taking a beating. Thanks

    I think this is common. I remember hearing about it in the past.

      How are the Twister pins doing? I have 24 GSX machines and was considering ordering TWISTER. Do they chip or crack easily?

          From a mechanical standpoint I love the twister pins outside of the red ring issue. They don't dirty up the machine as fast as wood pins do. With as many gears and switches as the GSX has, I'll take anything that makes cleaning the machine easier.
