What I bought was:

3 purple flipper rubbers- 2 for Metallica and 1 for the upper flipper on Star Trek
2 blue flipper rubbers- for the bottom flippers on Star Trek
2 purple 2 inch rings for the slingshots on Metallica
2 blue 2 inch rings for the slingshots on Star Trek

I hope the 2 inch slingshots rings are correct size or I'll have to get some 2 1/2 inch ones. let me know if I'am correct on the size?
Anyways, anyone using these yet? If so how they holding up? Prices were great, all that I bought for $9 shipped. Thanks

so, no one have these rings on there games?

#3 6 years ago

I have for about 7 weeks now, and made a post...So far..Awesome! I love the look, and slowly when needed, I am changing every game from either black or White, to Clear or colored...With new molds and a clean resin...I am finding alot less dust, and cleaning needed!

Can someone follow up on how well these are performing? Has anyone used them in route games?

#7 6 years ago

do they play like white rubber or do they act like those shitty superbands?

#8 6 years ago

Shitty superbands? Mine, while not in a routed game, have held up great and seem like regular rubber. Only had two break in over six months.

Just for clarification, I think the rings in this thread are the original Titan Colored Rings, not the newly released silicone ones.

#10 6 years ago

Yea those are the kind I have in my IM. I'll be putting the new silicon into my Avengers

#11 6 years ago

Yeah at first I thought the first run was silicone, but it's not.

#12 6 years ago

they do not play like normal rubber. Not at all.

#13 6 years ago

The new silicon rings from Titan do play very much like a soft duro flipper rubber. I've been testing them for a while on CV and Metallica. They are quite different from super bands. The bounce is back, baby!

To clarify, are you talking about Titan's rubber rings, Titan's new silicon "competition" rings, or Superbands?

He was talking about Superbands.

#17 6 years ago

no, i know superbands. They feel like garbage. Nothing like normal black or colored rubber. I'm talking about titans rings. that's what I'm asking about.

So I installed Titan silicone rings on my TAVLE almost 150 games ago and my slingshot rubber is about to split. I am hoping that this is not the norm because the translucent add a awesome visual effect with the light show. Just trying to gauge how many I need to order.

#19 4 years ago

I've seen them snap on slingshots a few times. had one snap behind the drop targets on my mustang too.... that being said normal rubber rings snap here too just not as quickly I find.

#20 4 years ago

The translucent bands have split on me more than other colors. I'm hoping they correct the formula to make them last longer. I use them and really like them.

#21 4 years ago

Haven't had any problems with my clear rings, been about a year now

#22 4 years ago

I ordered more they look and play awesome, just didn't know if it was a freak incident.

I just put a translucent ring kit from Titan Pinball, in my popeye pinball machine.
First I will say they look great.
Truthfully, the quality isn't there. They are not tough enough for a machines that have multi-ball action.
Less than 20 games played since installed. I have had 2 different ones break in different areas of playfield.
Lot of work to swap broken ones out.
Their customer service seems good.

Save your self headaches pass on these!

I agree. They look great. But anything bigger than an inch will not hold up. Ive had one break on my GOT and both slingers are very close to snapping as well. Its too bad cause the red looks bad ass in GOT.

Received email about the problem at 10AM, replacement rings are already shipped!

Did you use 2 1/2" rings? ALL Stern games need 2 1/2" for the slings regardless of what the manual says.

I have been using the rings for quite some time, well before my wife and I bought the company back in June. I have them on 5 machines that get played every day and have not had a single ring break. That is not to say that they don't break. I am always available on pinside, or by email at contact@titanpinball.com. Let me know if you ever have a question, problem or need a broken ring replaced!

#26 4 years ago

I have had a few slings snap (rare) and just go up a 1/4 or 1/2 inch and no issues since.

Manual calls for 2 1/2". im pretty positive thats what i ordered. I'll double check. The one that did snap is the 1-1/2" behind the drops. I think i replaced it with a 1 3/4" and seems to be holding up well so far.

Got it. Just let me know if you need anything. I'm always here to help!

Right on! I'll probably go for one more order in the near future. like i said, they look really bitchin in red on GOT. But if they snap every couple months, i may stop. But will let you know, thanks!

The Titan Pinball rubbers, sure look nice. I now know that the manual is not correct on my Popeye machine for a few of the rubber sizes. I see the one that keeps breaking calls for 2.5" might be 1/2" inch to short, they are sending me some bigger ones. One of the same rubbers I had trouble with when regular white rubbers were installed in my machine. I have learned that if you have to stretch them more than a little, they are too small and will break. They have good customer service. So they haven't given up, nor have I. Enjoy my updated pics.

I use them on route games and I love their play and they break once in a while but I'm hoping that they work on that. They perform better than Super bands but super bands are more durable. Still going with Titan. Thanks Titan pinball. Service is impeccable, and I'm a fan for life. Follow BrioklynPinball on social media and you will see games wearing Titan.

#32 4 years ago

Stunning Popeye, Tony, and well balanced!

#33 4 years ago

Thanks guys! I bet that popeye would turn some coin on route! You don't see them very often and Tony's is shiny!

#34 4 years ago

I really like the look of the translucent. Ordering soon. I'm hoping the sizes match up to my manuals.

I went with 2 3/4". I think the ones towards the back were 2.5" we went with 3". All good now. No problem since. A plus on customer service. Was a big job to change them 3 times though.

You said this over 2 years ago yet you're still shipping stern kits with 2" rubbers for the slingshots. UGH! RCT manual says 2" but it's supposed to be 2.5 inch.

To be fair, for the most part the kits are created by users and not by Titan. People create kits and upload them to the database so you may find errors.

Perhaps but Titan has said they all take 2.5” so they know. They just made a mistake, it happens. They will fix it promptly and I am sure they are happy this is brought to their attention.

Tried Titan White on my TZ and they are horrible. Too tight and won't stretch out.
Almost ripped out a couple posts on my NEW Micro playfield
Why are these popular??

Tried them where? If slings then I usually order a size up

Same. If the ring is really hard to put on and very stretched size up. Some of sizes in manuals are wrong as well. Best to order a few extra sizes if there is any doubt. Pay attention to the sizes of the rings when you take them off so you can make sure you have the same size.

Those were Superbands on his machine, not Titans.

I’ve had that issue with Superbands in the past, never with Titan rubbers. And I’ve installed Titans on about 35 or 40 pins.

On some pins that used odd sizes, like 2 1/4” etc, I also stepped up to 2 1/2”.

#45 18 days ago

Even if the rubber you pull off says 3", if the new 3" seems tight, use common sense and go up a size. Don't set yourself up for failure.

Be super careful not to nick the new rubber while pulling it over the post screw. If you nick it, it will break in no time.

I've used Titans on route games for years, they absolutely last longer than standard PRB rubber (the gold standard in real rubber).

#46 18 days ago

I like the Titan rubbers I got for #Monopoly, but the 5/16 ID rings had an exterior diameter that is larger than white rubber rings. We're not talking a lot of difference, but enough that it causes problems on the game. I had to pull a few and put white rubbers in their place.

According to my callipers, we are talking 0.705" for Titan (blue) and 0.680" for white rubbers.

Lol. You are too kind.

BTW I was able to confirm with the customer directly that the rings were not Titans.
