  • Vantage Red Lightning Kickers

    Has anyone used the Vantage Red Lightning Kicker rollers, and what do you think?

    Re: Vantage Red Lightning Kickers

    They work good as long as you have enough clearance between the sideplates... they're a little wider with that offset on them, and if clearance is tight, they rub the sideplate & they're history in less than a week... very soft compound

      Ditto "G". They do work quite well, one side of our house was installed too close so some lanes we can't use them on (so check that out) but other than that I love em
      All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

          <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">A bit more than new "inverted" (fatter at the top than at the bottom) kickers... they have a bump on them that sticks out, and when a ball comes in, they squash a bit.

          Put it this way, if your machines were installed correctly to spec, you won't have a problem... all you may have to do is shuffle a couple spacers around on the kicker pivot shaft. The only real way top tell is throw a pair on, adjust 'em, and run 'em. If you see pink "sawdust" under the ball exit after about 1/2 a game, they're rubbing the sideplates.

          On the subject of good kickers, you might also want to get in touch with Ed on here... the EBN kicker works very well, too...
