    when i put new rubbers on my flippers or turn them around to get more out of them i get worry that perhaps i should have somthing under the flipper when i push down to get the rubber on. can u bend the flipper down when you put new rubbers on and f*ck them up or what.

    .. I don't know what you mean.

    im not sure exactly what you mean either, but i do know that if you use the rubbers inside out, you get a lot of jump shots because the inside of the rubber is a bit concave.
    i clean the rubbers often with a bit of alcohol, rotate them a centimeter or so. they tend to get worn at the tip.

    Believe he's asking if the downward pressure on the flipper shaft will some effect on the mechanics below the playfield. I believe the answer is no as the shaft is bolted in place.. if it does, the bolt holding it in place was too probably too loose anyway.

    I recall reading somewhere (probably on RGP) that there is some product that is specifically designed to clean rubber. Does anyone know what this is?

    Cp100 is great for cleaning the rubber.

    Yep, I'm pretty sure that's the stuff I was thinking of. Does it in any way affect how the rubber plays?
