  • Vantage lexan spotting cups

    I have had a high percentage of the lexan cups I installed break prematurely. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Yup, tried a few, but they didn't survive.
    So it goes.

            AMF aluminums for us, last forever. I think in my 6 years I've had 3 break within the first year (probably just defective) other than that for us they're great
            All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

                In addition to all that, I have seen aluminum cups completly broken in half spot perfectly for many years....granted this was back in my pinchaser days when I worked for a Mechanic whos motto was "dont fix what aint broke" and in his opinion, if it spots, it aint broke

                    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Very true, I know the 5 cup on lane 55 has the top half completely gone, been like that since I started there 6 years ago. Another mechanic has been there 11 and said it was like that when he started there. It's like a novelty thing now, never drops it so we leave it as it is, our little novelty item [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]

                        I have often thought about giving them a try,after reading all these post about them...That thought is GONE.

                          Negatory. The lexan cup is the bomb. Got my first one when they first came out at a trade show. It is still in the lane. Awesome cup, just dont overtorque em, thats the only way i know how to break em.
                          The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks.
