  • Humpbacks and undergrounds

    Has anyone had trouble with undergrounds after installing the humpback ball return? We have just 3 more to install and they have prevented alot of our ball problems in the back, now there up front! I can not win, but it sure beats a kicker!!!
    Remember no one is perfect no matter how good we are!

    Sounds like your next investment needs to be some form of new ball return or lift. At my center we do have humpbacks and they are wonderful and we also have Brunswick 2000 ball returns. A return or lift like the 2000 will stop a lot of those up front ball calls. I remember my center used to have the old streamline ball returns, I think. These came out after the lazy susans, I believe. I am not real sure of the terms because some of them are as old as I am.

      1. You must now clean your Sure-Pik/Spectrum belts daily.
      2. The C-rails on your C-90-type lifts are worn out (at least on this side).
      3. You have 146-series Streamlane lifts. God help you.
      4. Try different wheels in your C-90-type lifts. Remember, bottoms work differently than tops.
      5. You have 057-series Magic Circle lifts. You poor bastard. Play with them in futility until you have capital to replace them with something modern.
      6. You have Brunswick lifts. This is the one product that has the combination of being good and bearing the Brunswick logo. It is self-explanitory.
