Just tried a complete set of these on my Williams Comet. I like them so far. Can't tell a big difference between these and rubber.
Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:
Off the top of my head with my limited experience . . .
- Last longer
- Keep shape better
- Won't deteriorate/decompose
- Stay cleaner / easier to clean
- Vibrant colors with consistent play
- All of the above while playing similar to rubber
Now, you always will have originalists who prefer rubber, and that's okay. Otherwise, Titan set the bar for bands!
I can tell by the texture, they will be easier to clean, which is a huge plus. Hopefully they'll keep some of the crud/dust on the playfield to a minimum as well.
