  • Twister pins

    What is your opinion about Twister pins.

    I have twister pins for the second season, and still in a good condition.Less damage on the outher side of the pin payed al lot atantion to the plows, cubs and the Bin.
    The first 2 weeks where terrible,the supplier stayd away in these days. I had to exchange 4 distrubutor belts because of slipping pins. Re adjust all the Orientor pans to 1/4" from the BE-Wheel. 30 times on one evening Off-spot. But now !!! Never had this little stop cycles almost no off spots, Machines run very good without continualy having to re adjust plate in BE-Wheel or distributor.

    The game of bowling is different with twisters, the game of bowling is also different with wood vs synthetics. Bowlers where complaining about the different game and some also named it a comercial diccision.
    But after a few 300's and high series, it's now accepted.

    Bowlers happy, and I'am very happy.

    Some lanes ran great with Twisters.

    Other lanes would not run well.

    Pin jams & pins swinging in the respot cells were the only problems.

      It's true that they fly, maybe it's possible to make them heavier in the future.

        Re: Twister pins

        We had a similar situation at our centre, the first two or three weeks were pin feed problems galore plus off spots.

        After a little tweaking and the pins got roughed up a bit they were as sweet as a nut! Now the scores are high and everybody is happy!

        Some like 'em some don't. I like 'em!

            I saw a movie of them once. Good movie, but it didn't have a happy ending.

            It may have been filmed in your country?

                I have them in now for 5 or 6 years. Kinda nice not replacing pins, Not rotating pins, or having to clean them every 2 months.

                But like EVERYTHING, everyone has they're own opinion.

                It seems to me I have a folder full of some movies out of here. Seem to recall a small boy riding a lane machine too.

                          Still running great even better with the 070-011-910 Orientor pan wipe. I hpe also to get them to 5 or 6 years. Good for the Budget to spend on other things.
