  • Luv Dem Punkins!

    I have about 90% pumpkins in my center. They are all curled up at the ball door and I am getting about 10-15 pins inside the carpet a year.
    Is anyone having this problem?

    I am slowly replacing them with the AMF Platinum belt.

    I put 60 of them on between 2000 and 2001. No curling but they all got "the wave" and hold the 6 lb'ers.

    Going platinum myself.

    Live and learn????????
    You gonna eat that?

        I have 2 platinums that are starting to fray at the edges. They are fraying at both sides. It is not a tracking issue as they do track nicely and I have not observed the carpet riding one side or the other.

          <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Vantage premiums fray at the edges but it does not affect performance.

          Can you trip them if need be?

            I have also been slowly changing to the platinums. I have the fraying issue as well, but has not effected the machine in anyway. Even the frayed section doesn't get wrapped around the front roller. Just breaks off into little pieces.

            This is by far the best carpet I have used.

                Agreed. The fraying does not turn into an unraveling problem and creating a mess with the front or rear roller. I'm hoping it stays this way. All in all not a bad carpet (Platinums), but I still tend to favor the Vantage Premiums.

                Pumpkins on the other hand, great for cutting up and using as dust mats under pinsetters...that's it.

                    I love the green carpets made by Amf. Ihave had only 1 of these carpets fail and it only came apart because some one left somthing on a machine and it fell in to the pit and cut it. The green Split finger gets my vote.

                      bout how long did it take for the platinums to start fraying? I've got a few of em and they still look brand new (because they pretty much are)

                        I hate pumpkins. I'm trying to change all mine over. I'm using the vantage super soft carpets. They work fine for me.

                          We've got quite a few super softs in, they do run well for us. We also have a few premiums in and man if it were my choice they'd all be premiums, they REALLY hold up well
                          All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

                            I'm replacing the stretching pumpkins (not me, my "B" does all the work!)with platinums so far 2 out of 10 are fraying but they are MUCH easier too keep clean than the pumpkin or green.
