  • tri-plates

    the tri-plates that protect the ball wheel. What product do you prefer? Metal or urethane? And what manufacture?

    Re: tri-plates

    I like the urethane ones on the lift rod side and the steel ones on the other side. I just feel that if one comes loose on the lift rod side the urethane won't tear the ball up.

      Re: tri-plates

      I like putting the Urethane type on both sides reason being on lift rod side it helps cut down on Balls getting big gouch circles on them when caught on top of cushion and these guards help protect the Bowling pins from scratching up also because they do rise and fall alot and hit the metal guards when they are there and I feel that helps save pinlife somewhat.And from past expeirences it seems the Quality brand are best made over the gray Brunswick style.Part # 12-4036 I think

I HAVE TRIED ALL KINDS AND HAVE HAD THESE ON FOR A FEW YEARS NOW AND HAVNT HAD TO REPLACE ONE YET.DONT USE THE METAL ONES OR THE GREY ONES FROM BRUNSWICK THEY SUCK.

            I did a test on a plastic about 10 years ago and made my own out of this plastic. The originals are still on the same machine. I beleive the cost back then was $10-$15 to make both sides for one lane. Since then I havn't made my own, but then I havn't needed to!
