  • Starter pads

    What kind of stater pads do some of you folks, like me who are blessed with kicker wheels use?
    Thanks

    The old stock gray AMF's... I don't think we've worn out more than 1 or 2 in the 15 years I've been at the bowl... As long as they're kept in place so they don't slip off the plate, they last about forever.

      When I replace I stay with AMF.

        AMF is the best. The newer ones do tend to wear out a little faster than their original ones from what I've noticed, but rubber is the way to go. Urethane is just too hard and unforgiving.

          Yep, we use AMF's also. Can't knock em, they work for us.
          All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

            Just like everyone said...AMF gray ones....anything else is just to stiff and hard.Especially the urethane ones.

                same here, we have a mix of the original AMF black and grey ones, no complaints here, got 50 spares and use about 4 a year between cups and ball return systems

                  Wow, I've never seen starter pads used in spotting cups before.
                  I'll throw in the standard procedure for the starter pad that's about had it - cut a notch about 3/8 to 1/2" above the end of the pad, so as to correspond with the tab that bends in at the bottom of the bracket. Put the pad back in and pull it down to catch the tab in the notch and it'll be good to go for several more months at least.

                    We do something similar to that... we have 2 holes in the bracket where it contacts the side of the starter pad... we use #8 sheet metal screws run into the 'meat' of the pad to keep it from sliding up out of the bracket.
