    Re: Carpet Belts

    Vantage Premiums are the best for me. Have some running for over 10 years and look to have 10 to go.

    Vantage softs are ok, but seem will eventually tear after about 5 years

    AMF Platinum, good looking carpet, tho new, time will tell

    AMF green, my nemisis. paper thin, easy to install and all, but sneeze too hard around it and it tears.

    all other carpets seem to have the eventual curling at the ball exit, not allowing light balls to enter.

    Just my $.01

      I agree with Coors on all. Except I'd like to add: AMF Pumpkin Orange=junk. Tuff to install and hold light balls.

          That's pretty much what I have seen at my center. I runing the vantage primi's, the pumkin'(junk), and mostly amf green. I really like the Vantage Primi's

            I love the thin green AMF carpet, they are so easy to install and have no problems with light balls. Ive never had a problem with 'em tearing - I might regret writing that!!!!

                I too recommend Stahl's white carpet,Easy to install,spray a little belt dressing on the inside and it only takes about 10-15 mins to break in.

                  Vantage Premiums are sweet. Stahl's ugly whites are too but they do end up looking ugly but they last! AMF Pumpkin, man those things suck royally. End up putting in hold down brackets for the 6lb balls and that only helps for 6 months. Just a warning on the AMF Platinum, whichever side they track to, you get this major amount of fine dust all over the roller body and spring hinge. Carpet does appear to be tracking correctly however.

                        I bought some Stahls ugly whites over a year ago. Took them to the car wash and cleaned them. Been in the machine for over a year now, and no problems at all. I do agree that the AMF Pumpkins suck, they dont last long. I also hate the Vantage rough tops, get a ball hung against the cushion and you get to buy the customer a new one. Just my 2 cents worth...

                          I agree with everyone. Even on the dislikes. I have four Platinums now and love them. Will keep you posted since they are so new. I have very high hopes for them.
                          The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks.

                            I use the Vantage Premiums and the Ugly whites. I like the premiums with two caveats. First, they seem to tear in random places in the middle of the carpet. Second, we can only seem to get about 3 years out of them. Only had the ugly's for a year, but like what I've seen so far.
