  • Vulcan Bowling Pins

    Are they still a going concern?

    Brunswick bought Vulcan and started making Vulcan and Brunswick pins in the Vulcan plant. Then they closed that and started having AMF make their pins. That was several years ago. Maybe someone else has more recent news.

      Not sure they are still around. I think the post above nailed it.
      Anyways my personal choice is to avoid all non-surlyn wood pins.
      Nylon coated pins don’t seem to last and look like crap 3 weeks in, even if you clean them. Surlyn coated pins or bust for me.

        you are correct sir. I think Surly pins are only offered by QAMF. Note there is no differecne In pins made by QAMF. Just labeled different. IE QAMF or Brunswick.

            Correct, though Brunswick came out with their first Surlyn covered pin the Max in the early 1990’s before Q/Amf started making pins for them. It does seem odd though that Q/AMF makes pins for the competition.

              The Flyer was actually Brunswick's first surlyn coated pin. It came out in the mid-1980's.

                The Flyer pins were Nylon coated, Max were the first Brunswick Surlyn coated pins.

                  This is correct. I’m staring at a nylon coated Brunswick Flyer from 1990 as I type.

                    Our last set of AMFs was a disaster. Reason I'm looking for an alternative.

                      Want to try Ebonite pins? I've seen some but they were used when the center got them so I can't tell you how well they last.

                        You could try twisters, though some dont, like how much they fly around, sound, or red rings fall off the necks.... and sometimes you have to make pinsetter/pinspotter adjustments to make them run well.
