    Anyone having problems with Vantage spotting cups being very rough and not spotting pins correctly

    No…Did you check the bottom gap? Have you tried an AMF cup with the same gap to verify the cup is defective?

      We have tried all the aftermarket manufactures and on this one we have found there is nothing better than genuine AMF cup. We have had issues with all the others. The worst one is the plastic cup.

        I have a lot of the vantage plastics and have no problem with them. I think they are just as good as the orignal AMF ones. Make sure the table is level to the pin deck and spotting at the right hight.
        There is always more to life, but would someone tell me what it is!

          Never liked Vantage cups. AMF's only for me
          All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

              Vantage cups are set at a different angle than the OEM cups. I took them all out and sent them to recycle.
