    Who has used glow in the dark rubber rings? I’m thinking about using the glow rings from Titan on an upcoming project but would like some feedback based on first hand experience.

    Is the glow effect noticeable if you are not in a darkened room?

    Do they play the same / last as long as the regular Titan silicone?

    Any feedback, especially with a picture or two would be great!

    Looking through the filtered thread linked by Atari_Daze the look I’m going for seems like a combination of glow rings and UV or blue general illumination. I wonder if I went with glow rings plus UV leds behind the rings if the overall light would be too dim and purple? Maybe I could offset that while retaining the cool bluish ring glow with some diy stadium lighting set to a warm white but dimmed slightly?

    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    horrible idea. You never want to use anything but white in the GI sockets, or you will not be able to see anything. Using UV, would be the equivalent to using IR for Gi's. the game will be unplayable due to lack of visibility, and your art package will be destroyed. Only thing you could see would be the rubber rings.

    Interesting. Have there been reports of UV bulbs destroying artwork on playfields or plastics?

    This photo from Atari_Daze (from the thread linked above) is basically what I’m going for only with more warm white light on the playfield.

    Atari_Daze do you still have the game shown above? If so, how is the art holding up to the UV exposure?
