    I am getting ready to replace all my rubber rings on my Williams Indiana Jones. Originally I was going to just stick with all white. But I am intrigued by the translucent rings. Can anyone give any feedback on the translucent rings, whether specifically to IJ or other similar machines?
    BTW, i have mostly incandescent bulbs in the game, so not sure if that makes a difference as well. Thank you

    Don’t know about IJ but I put translucent rings on the slings of my WOZ. They look great, and the light from under the slingshot plastics really shines through. Of course, WOZ is a total light show so it may be different with a traditional game with incandescents.

    Quoted from djoverpour:

    Anyone else have any problems with the Titan sleeves not holding up? I just bought a bunch of color combos on the Black Friday sale, and after 100 plays on GotG, most of the post sleeves on the bottoms of the ramps are shredded. Maybe the purple ones are softer or somethin?

    I have blue ones on my GOTG and they are shredded to and need to be changed already.

    #2354 1 year ago

    I'll have to keep an eye on my blue post sleeves. So far so good.....*touch wood*

    Translucent rings are all I use. Love them.

    Seems like the superbands are best for super high wear posts that get pounded. Not sure I’ve ever heard one of those breaking. Haha

    #2357 1 year ago

    Has anything ever happened w 2 1/4" translucents? Maybe they came and went without me seeing them? Heard they had been on order, but never saw them (TRON wants them badly).

    Also ordered some 1 3/4" for my BM66LE last order. Labeling was "2" and they looked a bit dull, but fit, so I used one (there's only 1 under the turntable. Ideas?

    Merry Christmas everyone, and Titan Rocks!!!!

    #2358 1 year ago

    I don’t think any color of 2 1/4 are available yet. I’m patiently waiting. I want a ton of them.

    Titan kicks ass! Hobbit in orange.

    IMG_1050 (resized).JPG

    #2361 1 year ago

    That Hobbit looks great! That GOTG looks amazing as well. We are finding out that stern slim post it failing early in areas that take a pounding. I'm afraid that there is just not enough thickness to take all that abuse. Hit me up at contact@titanpinball.com if anyone wants some extras. Just let me know what your order number was. If there is room where the post goes, I recommend switching to a standard post. Obviously this wouldn't work in all situations, but the extra thickness of the silicone helps wear tremendously.

    2-1/4" is on order, correctly this time . ETA is early February.

    The current 1-3/4" is marked 2-1/4" incorrectly. I mis-communicated the size to the shop when they were made. Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

    #2362 1 year ago

    I've noticed the newer batches of translucents seem to be slightly thicker than previous batches. Particularly the 2 1/2" ones I use on the slings. Hope this is intentional. Merry Christmas Titan!!

    Thanks Eric...new they were 2 "something", but smaller than my 2" I already had......I guessed right, and it fit fine.

    Have a great Christmas!!!!!....mark

    My older batch of the above are slightly thicker as well.

    Just put in my order yesterday. I'm also looking for the 2 1/4 in!

    Merry xmas Titan and everybody

    #2365 1 year ago

    I just noticed today that my post sleeve behind the crane on my BM66 is getting demolished. Does Titan make stronger ones that don't bounce the balls like crazy off them?

    Have you considered Cliffy post sleeves? Less bounce and last forever.

    #2368 1 year ago

    He INVENTED them. Well maybe. But he's the man, buy his.

    Thanks guys for the quick help.

    Do you think the standard post sleeves would fit on GOTG at the bottom of the ramps?

    #2371 1 year ago

    Only one way to find out! Unfortunately, I don’t have access to a GOTG.

    Quoted from chuckwurt:

    Same here. All I use on the slings of all of my machines. Some are almost two years old and still look new. I clean them once a month lol

    They will fit, but it going to make the gap shot even tighter. I am going to put some on mine, until i can get my hands on some superband slim sleeves ill try to remember to grab a picture when i do.

    titan_pinball just placed my second order, not sure when your web site was modified but it seemed to flow really well today!
    Selection was quick and easy, checkout via Paypal worked great. Bump of thread for a great vendor!

    Just a heads up for anyone coming to TPF this year that we will not be able to build game-specific kits for machines at the show. The simple explanation is with over 500 sku#s in silicone rings, it's just not practical to bring every size in every color. We'll have bulk kits, common sizes, flipper rings, pinmats, shirts, tools... Safecracker loaded with TPF tokens

    I can bring ANY preorder to the show all the way up until the 14th of March and you will save the shipping! So if you want a kit, please preorder! TPF2018 or TITAN10 gets you 10% off silicone!

    Any specific games that use 2-1/4 rings?

    #2381 1 year ago

    I’m going to put these on all my sling shots.

    #2382 1 year ago
    Quoted from PinRob:

    Plenty. Most notably the slingshots on modern Stern pins.

    I've been using the 2 1/2" slings since the 2 1/4" ones weren't available. I haven't had any issues. Should I switch?

    Quoted from thundergod76:

    Depends. In some situations the ball can get caught behind the sling because they are too loose. Some games the ball can have trouble running down the inlane. Just depends. If you’re experiencing no issues, stay the course. I like my slings tight, but 2” were too tight and caused breaks.

    #2385 1 year ago

    Yes, most notably. If they seem a little tight when you put them on. They will break in a few months.

    #2386 1 year ago

    Once you get the correct sizes. These rubbers look and play great.

    #2387 1 year ago

    2-1/2” works for me on most modern games. I think I use 2-3/4” rings on Sega slingshots as it seems these are slightly bigger.

    #2388 1 year ago

    I've been using 2-3/4" on some classic bally's too...

    #2389 1 year ago

    Are you guys coming to MGC?

    #2390 1 year ago

    Not this year. I'm working towards stepping away from my full time gig mid 2020. After that we may start hitting more shows than just TPF and Houston.

    #2395 1 year ago

    Ill get the complete kit uploaded to the site as soon as its updated with Iron Maiden as a select able game to make a kit for.

    #2396 1 year ago

    Amazing! Let me know how those slim posts hold up. We've been messing with the hardness.

    Have you been trying to make them softer?

    #2398 1 year ago

    Harder. They are too soft and they shred when the post takes a lot of hard, direct hits. The original stern slim posts are just plastic like polyethylene or polypropylene.

    Oh cool. I would be interested in trying them on my X Files. The old hardness (which I got in blue) shredded right away from the constant abuse, and you were very kind to replace with standard post sleeves. But those are thicker, and it would be nice to go back to something a bit thinner. I’ll get some with my next order.

    I had put some slims on my guardians and they didn't last more then a couple of weeks at the location. As i was putting all of these on i was wondering if i would have the same issue as i bought them all at around the sametime. Are the current ones in stock the harder ones? If so i will probably place an order to have some on hand.
