    Quoted from heni1977:

    some Titans for JJP POTC!

    Did you take it apart yet? I’m curious what it came with. There should be some titans on it from the factory...

    #2502 1 year ago

    I did not know this! I wonder what titans they used and where? I know the slings and posts are all clear, but was not sure of manufacturer. The flippers look like standard rubbers. I thought the titans were more of a shiny silicon?
    I know my star trek already had the titans on it when I got it.

    #2503 1 year ago

    JJP only bought 3/8" OD (mini post), 1-1/2" ID and 2-1/2" ID clear silicone from Titan for the pirates build. The rest of the rubber on the game is someone else's and possibly a mix of more than 2 brands. I did hear that they used regular flipper rubber, most likely Happ-Suzo. I'm sure the 2-1/2" are the slings and the 3/8" OD are in the rocking ship and probably other areas... Not sure where the 1-1/2" goes.

    #2504 1 year ago

    On the JJP Pirates. Flipper rubber has already been replaced with Titan blue on mine. Created two kits, one stock with red flippers and one with blue flippers. Love the blue on mine. Stayed with black on the Black Pearl and clear everywhere else for now.

    #2505 1 year ago

    I posted that info on the POTC thread so others know! Great info! I got the red flippers for the PF and the black for the BP. I love Titan rings great product!

    #2506 1 year ago

    Titan silicone on 1976 Fireball home edition. Game took a few days to repair, clean, polish, and LED. Still have to put on new pop bumper skirt.

    What ever happened with that Pinsider who thought his yellow Titans faded to white?

    #2509 1 year ago
    Quoted from Atari_Daze:

    What ever happened with that Pinsider who thought his yellow Titans faded to white?

    Quoted from Coyote:

    Sorry guys; I thought I posted here.
    I never heard back from the ex. (No surprise.) I cut one open, and it's white inside as well. So, either I just had ordered the wrong type back in '16, or, someone at York show decided to play a trick on me. The shooter rubber was still colorized (it didn't fade), but was also ordered at a different time.
    So, no alarm, no issues; everything's peachy!

    #2510 1 year ago

    double post

    #2511 1 year ago

    Has anybody ever considered making or made a flipper rubber with vertical registration lines? Not even sure it is possible, but if say you had alternating color sections you’d be able to control shot timing/angle better. Think pool table geometry...
    Maybe some shapes molded into the top edge?

    #2512 1 year ago

    Flipper power, pin level and pitch at the very least would make that unreliable I think.

    #2513 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinbutt2000:

    Has anybody ever considered making or made a flipper rubber with vertical registration lines? ...

    Not sure you could control angle, but it might help with honing instincts. It would have to be a contrasting color, though, so grab a ruler and a Sharpie and see if a few marks on the top edge improves your game...

    #2514 1 year ago

    Anyone care to comment on the new Stern tapered post sleeves ?

    Does it make a difference ?

    Is it worthwhile for Titan or someone else to make these ?

    With the flipper power of new games being higher

    I don't get why these tapered rubbers are so hard ?

    Is there a patent ?

    #2515 1 year ago

    Anyone have a pic? I haven't even seen one.

    #2516 1 year ago
    Quoted from Durzel:

    Flipper power, pin level and pitch at the very least would make that unreliable I think.

    Missing my point I think. It would be an indicator of the time to shoot the ball on that machine. Example, most players know where on their flipper to hit the most common ramp shot. But it gets a bit tricky on some outlane shots or really tight needle thread shots.
    It’s not like it would be a gauge set up for say all STTNG pins or other. Just a set of marks to gauge shot timing.

    The marker idea is not a bad one actually.

    #2517 1 year ago

    I too am curious about these tapered sleeves....pics?

    #2518 1 year ago

    Here is the glow in the dark rings with a UV under apron mod for AFMr. Looks amazing.

    Apologies if this has been talked about. But what product does the manufacturer suggest to clean these bands?

    #2520 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinbutt2000:

    Apologies if this has been talked about. But what product does the manufacturer suggest to clean these bands?

    I use Novus 1 on mine and they come out great. MUCH easier to clean these vs. traditional rubber rings.

    #2521 1 year ago

    I use Simple Green, but maybe theres something better out there. However, they come out pretty clean.

    #2522 1 year ago
    Quoted from Only_Pinball:

    I use Novus 1 on mine and they come out great. MUCH easier to clean these vs. traditional rubber rings.

    Agreed...I do the same. Much easier and no nasty smell like Wildcat rubber cleaner

    #2523 1 year ago

    Even your finger works just fine.

    #2524 1 year ago

    I use isopropyl alcohol to clean the rings. I have been known to use Honda cleaner polish as well. They sell it at the Honda cycle shops...

    #2525 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinbutt2000:

    I use this stuff from Pinball Life. It smells nice too ...

    Does anyone know if Titan will be doing a new years sale? A friend is going to the USA for work and it is much cheaper and easier to get a bulk load for us both, but hoping there may be a new years sale (we do that in the UK as opposed to Black Friday etc.) not sure if it happens in the USA too?!?

    #2527 1 year ago

    They had a Black Friday sale recently

    #2528 1 year ago
    Quoted from Durzel:

    Another sale? Count my TZ in!

    #2529 1 year ago

    Ordered some for my JJP POTC. Backups plus I want to replace stock flippers. Now if only usps would find my order soon lol.

    I used code TITAN10 for the 10% off listed in the OP... I imagine you might could swing a bulk deal if it’s really bulky.

    #2531 1 year ago
    Quoted from Titan_Pinball:

    I use isopropyl alcohol to clean the rings. I have been known to use Honda cleaner polish as well. They sell it at the Honda cycle shops...

    So none of the above are known to damage the silicone bands? I generally use Novus, Plexis, and Or Mills Wax.

    Thanks for the suggestion - I don't know what you class as bulky, but it'll probably hit $200 - $250. Which for me, is a lot to spend on rubber.

    #2533 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinbutt2000:

    So none of the above are known to damage the silicone bands?

    I probably would not use anything abrasive like Novus. It could abrade the skin off the silicone. It would probably take years though.

    #2534 1 year ago

    I use an anti static foaming cleaner on everything and it works brilliantly. Not abrasive at all but it gets dirt off rubbers and everything else with no problems.

    This is the stuff:
    Genuine Amberclens Anti Static Foaming Cleaner 400ml https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003FTR0IS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_M49kCbMNPNV0X

    Apologies for the UK Amazon link, I imagine it must be available over the pond.

    I believe these are the "tapered" Stern post sleeves that were referred to earlier. The taper is slight and at the bottom of the sleeve. These sleeves are very hard, almost like rigid plastic. I'm posting a side, top, and bottom view. The blue sleeve is a Titan Stern slim sleeve for comparison. The black sleeves came off of my GOTG pro. Hope this helps Eric

    #2536 1 year ago

    Huh, weird. The Stern one almost just looks like a cheap poorly formed post sleeve rather than being intentional. Maybe more quality cost cutting again

    #2537 1 year ago

    I have always used eucalyptus oil to clean rubbers
    and adds a nice smell in the end too

    #2538 1 year ago

    Thanks scribbles! I think we can make that. I'll sure look into it.

    For anyone looking for mini flipper for munsters premium/LE:

    According to Stern, the mini playfield flipper rubber is the same part number 545-6187-00 as Shrek and Family Guy mini playfield flipper rubber. Can anyone confirm this? If this is the case, it would finally be time to tool up and have these made. We won't be able to carry all colors, but we can start with 3 or 4 choices like maybe black, glow, purple, red? Or maybe Green or dark blue instead of red? I must keep FG and Shrek in mind too...

    What's recommended for replacing thin rubber sleeves on thick posts, such as the goalposts on WCS?

    #2541 1 year ago

    Those would be our Post Sleeve - Standard
