    I am not very fond on Century Products... I would stick with Brunswick Kegel... Have had a Phx for the last 8 years and until recently have had no problems with my lane machine...

      Our center has had a summit for 6 months now, worked ok when first got it, now I think its a piece of junk. Leaves a strip of water at the foul line from pad. AMF says it is a design flaw they have to correct. Something with the front wheels not low enough to lane. They should of figured that out from the get go before shipping out. Just my 2 cents worth.

        I have must keep the machine perfectly clean or it will be inconsistant. Change the wicks every month, and own a lane tape reader. I wish I had a Phoenix wickless. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img]

          i think it works ok i have a phoenix at my other center and prefer the phoenix over the summit(plummet). my biggest gripe about the plummet is that it is built poorly. i've had 2 fuse holders, the power l.e.d., lid clamps and other stupid parts just break out of nowhere and two of the lids fell off. the screws didn't fall out the pop rivets that attach the lid to the shaft were gone [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img] it works ok but i would take a phoenix any day

          I work on some nice old Brunswick A-2 pin setters. Most issues I've come across haven't been to problematic to figure out. But being I can't seem to get it to recreate the issue...
