  • Best dist belt on the market

    One that is grippy, even when pins become a bit oily. Maybe this just even exist.
    If it cant be fixed with a hammer, use a bowling pin.

      Too bad they are not available anymore. I liked them too except for the shedding and gunk buildup on the rollers.

        Oh, my favorite topic TJ!!! This part has changed more times than I can count. It seems like just when someone comes out with a good belt it gets discontinued. I think We have tried them all as well. The problem is that you never know how good they really are until six months down the road. And by then, someone else has come up with something completely different. Recently, on another thread, someone mentioned an orange belt. Does anyone have more info on this one
        I can't even spell Brunsw-ick anymore!!!

          im gonna hijack this thread a little, but a related question that has bugged me for a few years. I maintenance several houses. One oddity ive noticed is, Im using grey grippers as example, however other belts are also applicable. One house, Belts become Harder and Useless as can be pretty quick, we'll say a year or so. But at another house, 10 year old belts, & even 7 year old Grey gripper belts are Soft and Grabby as can be. Im impressed grey grippers are still tacky after 7 years, however, at other house, all belts seem to become hard non grip.

          A difference ive been pondering is, one owner is a kegel only guy, another owner is a brunswick only guy. Meaning they prefer the companies lane cleaning/conditioners of each company. Is there something in Certain Companies oils/cleaners that reacts with the belts?? Been pondering this for years now, since i noticed this oddity. Thoughts? Rumors?

            It has to be, some oils have a dozen ingredients, all different depending on the company. How they react to the pin, dist belt, and carpets can't be known for months/years.

              As far as grip goes with dist belts the best I had at my old place were the AMF Poly V's. We got 2 in to try and I put them in immediately. Those belts gripped anything for me. They were in for about 3 years when I left and were still in perfect shape. Some dirt did get in the grooves but that was my only complaint. Had next to no pin jams on those lanes
              All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

                  Absolutely! We did a test 4 years ago with many of the different lane products on the market against our own belts and in some cases the results we horrifying. Some of the companies in the industry are offering extensive guarantees on their carpet belts. If they stand by their promise they are gonna have their hands full with some of the conditioners on the market.

                    We have one orange belt. It looks old and runs like it's brand new. I do not know who makes it, but sliding pins are not an issue at all with it.

                      We buy orange belts from Transmission Australia... $20AUD a metre... They have a diamond pattern and are grippy as all hell. No pins stalling or sliding. Pin_head will vouch for them :P

                        The belt seanm refers to from Transmission Australia is by far the best dizzy belt I have EVER used, so grippy in fact if you try clean em with a rag it would chew the rag up... you would really struggle to try and stop a pin with your hand once it hits the belt..... In another thread somewhere sean posted a pic or 2 of the belt....

                              I think that i have seen the orange belts in the past. If my mind serves me correctly, the belts used to not sit flat on the belt runner, so the pin would not be centered between the rails. Is this still a problem?
