Has anyone installed these on a TSPP yet? If so, what colors did you use?
I've been very disappointed with a lot of the white rubber I've bought the last couple years. It just isn't made like it used to be.
The Titan silicone flipper bands play similarly to black flipper bands. The Titan silicone rings, on the other hand, seem to be a bit bouncier than black rubber rings.
Quoted from TZBen:
I like the post rubber bounce that the Titans offer vs. The dead bounce I was getting with the superbands posts. It gives me a fighting chance to save the ball when used in an outline situation
My experience is the exact opposite. I find the Super-Band mini post rubbers to be much bouncier than the Titans.
I've seen the silicone ones turn white as I squeeze them over a post, but then they quickly return to their normal color.
Quoted from Number41:
CoinTaker sells Super Bands which are polyurethane, not silicone. The difference is noticeable - Super Bands have great durability but play a bit dead with less bounce compared to silicone (I have tried both). Titan Silicone behaves more like standard red rubber ...
This is only partially true. Super-Band flipper rubbers are indeed less bouncy than Titan's silicone flipper bands. Super-Band mini post rubbers, on the other hand, are much bouncier than their silicone counterparts.
Quoted from Number41:
Good point, Gweem! I was only referring to the flipper rubbers since that's all I've come across. Good to know that about the post sleeves!
Just to be clear, it's the Super-Band mini post rubbers that are super bouncy ...
I don't think I've ever used one of their post sleeves, so I can't vouch for those one way or the other. For post sleeves, I generally go with Cliffys.
Quoted from Nokoro:
I just placed an order for new flipper rings and couldn't find where to enter the promo code to get 10% off. I ended up just putting it in the comments section. Am I just missing it?
When you view your shopping cart, there is a section right below it that says "What would you like to do next?" One of the options is to use a coupon code.
Here's some pics of mine. I used blue, red and purple Titans for all the rings. The post sleeves are Cliffys ...
Quoted from Pinbutt2000:
Apologies if this has been talked about. But what product does the manufacturer suggest to clean these bands?
I use this stuff from Pinball Life. It smells nice too ...
