    It was posted on a bowling facebook group, all that is known is that it is from an AMF machine.

    Looks like a pin in subway causing ball to rock on return track and hit side wall of underground return
    For Sale, Parachute. Only used once, never opened, small stain.

      Looks like belt burn. Looks like something scraped the ball instead of the ball scraping something
      Keep an eye on it see if it does it again

        My guess was worn lower track rail covers, and ball is hitting metal uprail.

        Pin in the underlane would cause more obvious issues to the centre with underlane ball jams.

          With the undergrounds I had at the last center I worked at if the pin was not on the middle of the underground return it would damage all balls thrown and never cause return issues

            Looks like belt burn or ball return wheel burn up front to me.

              We've had slimer damage.theres a pin hung on the front roller.when the ball hits that pin there's no give causing what you are seeing.seal the gap between the front carpet roller and the tail plank.
