  • SBI Ball Strips

    Hi Gang
    Has anyone tried the ball strips from SBI. We started using them here and are really happy with them. They are made of carpet but have a rubber back on them to help them hold together and prevent fraying. Would like to know if anyone else has tried them and what they thought. If anyone would like to know about them just write a reply or email me at

        Hi gang
        SBI stands for Schemm Bowling Inc. They make some new stuff for pinsetters like the ball strips and sell all of the parts for brunswick machines. Their number is 1-888-SBI-Bowl.
        Later all!

Dont care for them to much.After time they WILL slip and move(no matter how you install them)and they tend to shread a little,and its carpet....carpet absorbs oil.I prefer quality's,you know...the ribbed style and the tigers are great too! Never had a quality ever try to slip off or slowly shread.Just my 2 cents worth.Oh and yes...i know how to properly apply the
