  • AMF plastic bounce boards

    Did anyone put those junk assemblies in their machines like I did in 1994-1995.

    We all should have levied a claim against them in bankruptcy court for damages.

    I stayed away from the plastic ones. I never thought they would last long.
    Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

        Yet, another piece of doo-doo from them.

        If they didn't crack they bowed something terrible.

        I'll stick with Vantage bounce plates.

          These were one piece replacement for the whole assembly.

          They bowed in the middle and let balls through.

            Yea, I have one or two of them around... I keep them for a 7th-round-draft-pick emergency spares... in case 6 other planks decide to head south at the same time.

            But even the thought of leaving them in a machine to be beaten on for any length of time is enough to make me want to barf...

            Mebbe I should install them... then in 10 minutes when they crack in half, I'll have an excuse to throw 'em out...

              Heh i agree with the above but I was not to happy with the ZOT black ones as well. All the zot bounce boards ive seen have blown out in the middle. Oh well, guess they dont make them like they used to eh?

                I've been using the pheonalic ones from AMF with good luck. Never tried the Vantage ones, a center close by didn't have good luck with them.

                  What an abortion those plastic ones were.Ughhhh...I installed one and less than 7 days later it snapped right across the holes.Needless to say a 2nd one never got installed.From what i see,vantage makes a good and sturdy one.

                    The one-piece (of cr_ _) unit is now hanging on my "Wall of Shame" as a reminder.
                    Vantage's Terminator bounce boards are good, but I've noticed edge wear after about 6 or 7 years. AMF's brown ones are phenolic and indestructable, but you can get the exact same ones from Stahl's for a little less $$. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]
