    no lacing? leave them as long as possible so you can relace later.

        That's ok, most come already laced. I would go as long as you can go without having the belt rub on the casting.

          They are a good belt. I cut mine to 116 1/4" or so then lace them.

            i cut mine to right about 116 1/4 also and they work like a champ. you could go an 1/8 longer if you neede to. very reliable belt as long as they dont contact the belt gard. i love mines as out of 60 lanes im running almost 48 of them.

              How long have they been in for? Could you please report back after they have been in for a 18 months or so, as my Poly V's were awesome for the first 2-3 months but they are rubbish now, becomming so slick with zero grip.... I take back anything I said about the poly v's they simply don't hold up to lane oil...

                I have been running the grey belts for over 4 years now. The nubs do wear down but the belts still grip the pins and are holding up really well.

                    I just received my 4 Stahls white gripper belts. All I can say is WOW. These things are shiney white and unbelievably grippy. As a pin is going down dist belt, i can block the pin with a pin stick and the belt stops. The belts are half the thickness of Poly-v's. They are precut and prelaced on both sides, which is really convenient. $25 a piece, im getting more.
                    If it cant be fixed with a hammer, use a bowling pin.

                      I've had the grey amf 'gripper' dizzy belts in for a couple years now without any problems except for them breaking down physically... but they still out perform the poly-v's by miles. The orange belts are still superior though pin_head...

                        Yeah I absolutely agree, if it is possible to fall in love with a dizzy belt I think I just may have...... so much grip on those belts I think if the dizzy was going fast enough would throw the pin up to the approach ....

                        Put it this way first day I tried cleaning it with a dry rag, the belt kind of chewed up the rag and ripped it, it is that grippy....

                          Hahaha, yeah well you wont see ppup's on the dizzy anymore, just 20 pins at one bin pocket or on the catwalk... they just don't stop.
                          I don't clean dizzy belts at all anymore.. occasionally will take a brush to the orange ones if they look bad.. but still there's no need to clean.
