    Amflites and Brunswick pins are made in the same factory, but with different markings.

    Are the Max's brand new? How much have they been used? Wood pins have a break-in period.

      The pins are different for sure!

        I think these pins share the same base construction. They probably share the same materials. One would need the 2 new pins side by side to see if they share the same dimensions. They may be the same pins, or maybe each pin still has its own specifications that make them still different to eachother.

            I'm aware their made in the same place . thats how they sold us. my AMF's are much older and still have good carry and life to them but they're on there last leg

              Chris, I have a new set of the Brunswick max pins for the state tournament. We put them in for a
              month of break-in period and we had good scores right out of the box. We had 3 300's
              3 800's with 867 being the highest, now that was with our house shot. As I'm typing this , they
              just called in the back to tell me that we just had a 300 game and that was bowled on the
              white pattern #2. Years ago when we had a set of the max pins we went through the same
              thing you are and we just said it must have been a bad set.

                  That's about the same time we got ours and so far they have been falling good.

                        My center also has Max's we got them about a year and a half ago. At least they did not bounce at all. This past summer we pulled them out and put the old pins in. This fall when we put them back in they started bouncing all over the place.
                        It only took two years and two new owners to finally be allowed to come in and work on lanes before we open........
