  • Track rail covers.

    So what's the latest and greatest on the market for track rail covers? I have some rocket rails, but a while back got some beige ones that are nice and thick that i like...... but i can't remember who i got them from I was thinking maybe Stahl's.

      Yeah the fat tan covers are from stahls. I like em a lot. I've heard good things about the amf clear covers too but they are expensive!

          You can get those fat tan colored ones from EBN too. I bought a couple of sets from him and no more yo-yo problems at all.

            i have the clear ones from amf and have had no problem with yoyoing. I have had problems with the thimbles on the bottom though but all it took was to rotate them a little and add a couple shims behind the lower mount to get htem closer to the belt. I have been there 5 years and they were there a couple before that. If you have very narrow returns be careful pulling the lift out it can and will cut the cover.
            Sometimes we have to do stuff to get by....Just go back and do it right when the "by" has passed!!

              Stahl's fat tan covers with thimble ball guides (for PBLs), work ridiculously well for us, I mean seriously everything gets lifted with these.

                Stahl's had a black fat cover awhile back, works great just like the tan. These had a corduroy like texture running the length of the tube.

                  We use the tan ones also. The ball guides help the ball to center better and prevent wear to the ends of the covers.

                    Fat tan ones from Stahl's it is then! Yeah they work very well i cut em in half and used them on 2 pairs. I'm sure those clear AMF ones are good but i saw the word expensive. LOL

                      Get a better price if you buy it yourself. It's just sandblast hose they are selling. http://www.goodyearep.com/productsdetail.aspx?id=2964

                        Is there a difference between the black and the tan as far as durability??? What do they charge you per roll???

                          We've had the 'clear' AMF gripper rails for roughly 5 years without problem - once the ball is on the rail its going no where but up. The only problem we found was using silicon based lane oil was 'polishing' the ball track on the rail. Turned the rails slightly after we abolished that oil and has been fine ever since.

                            The only main issue we have is the orange thimbles are a bit crappy, they wear out far too quickly... they work fine once you spin em around....

                              If these black have the lengthwise cordurory tecture lines they last the same.
