    I re-made a kicker roller out of the vantage black ones. It looked like a radiation symbol. Never tested it but it looked like it would have worked. Maybe ill put it on if i can find it...

        I'm not sure if your referring to ours or not.... I didn't really mention a color yet...was thinking hot pink or neon green. Anyway.... it wont be ready for the market for a few months yet...still in R&D...making a kicker isn't as simple as it sounds...cheap either!

        I'm sure once I find a few centers for R&D the topic will pop up here sooner or later.

          ALso dont make em green... AMF has a green one and to tell ya the truth i dont understand it..were always complaining that we want a kicker to kick in a ball that is pretty oily..well this one i got as a sample felt like it came out of my kustodian's recovery tank. Go figure! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img]

          P.S. Make em blue :~)

              Hey Guys. I'm not a big Vantage fan but they make a kicker that has a notch that protrudes from the side. You buy them as a left hand and right hand unit. They work well for me. I was ready to install a couple more humpbacks but after installing these babys no more problems. Good luck.

                <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">I'm currently running them, and they work good... just remember if anyone else tries them, that they aren't universal... there is a lefthand one and a righthand one... put them on backwards, and they tend to take themselves apart... the notch catches the side of the ball and rips loose, or wears off fast... I made that goof once already.

                  We also have a few of those from Vantage that we threw in and I must agree they work VERY well. As said earlier just be careful that ya put the proper one on as they aren't universal. Anyway they do seem to work VERY well. Rarely a ball call on any lanes with em in

                    I liked the red lightnings too until a ball got stuck in the exit and it ate them away. I do want to try and get more though. Still nothing like the whities.

                          Jimmy, notice in my other post I said we used a few of the vantage ones. Got headways in all the others, mainly red devils and a few of the old black round ones. They do us well, we also have a few of the white murrey ones in that also work well [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

                            Kickers - NAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

                            You can justify putting in Humpbacks.

                            Convert 2 pair a season.

                            I havent touched one in months.

                            Ball door rings as sturdy as an anvil.

                            0 ball calls.

                            Oil em up and watch the house balls come back.

                            SORRY ED!!
