        i dont mean to start a war....but the one thing that stands out in my mind about those days was the bruns flyers averages about 1 or 2 lost rings a night. and it wasnt a bad round...it was every time we got a round of flyers. I liked Max's as far as scoring, AMFlites as far as durable

          We did a long time ago
          first of all stay a way from the white coats they stick in the pin wheels and the bins
          and you will find white paint ever where
          as for the clear coats they do run better but you will have to have a lot of spare pins on hand i really dislike them all my self but that's me

            I have used them. It might be a mental block (imagine that) but I didnt want them from the get go! The bowlers pay good money and I dont think we should be trying to save a couple of $$$$ by giveing them crappy old repainted pins!

            If you dont agree I have a 1974 Vega with a super pretty candy apple red paint job that I will sell you for ...well ....$10,000.00! WHAT!!! It look's pretty!!! Whatdoes it matter what the rest of it is like!!! Do you see where IM going with this?????

              Don't use reconditioned pins. We have always used AMFlights and they last us about 2.5 to 3 years. Take care of you pins, wipe them off every so often, then when they become unusable, change them out with new fresh pins. And as always, be sure to put new pins in both machines of a pair. Sometimes you can find some good pins amoungst the ones you change out. Put these in another machine with old pins as others break.
              Just a thought......
