I was watching a video for surfer, and noticed the flipper rubbers were significantly thinner. I have noticed these on games of other earlier eras as well. Where do you find these?

I have ball hop on the Eight Ball Deluxe I am cleaning up when it comes down the guide and hits the thick flipper rubber I have on there. Anyone else try thinner rubbers for games from this era?

I have tried moving the guides by loosening them, The rubbers see really thick on this game. The flipper barely wanted to move at first the rubber rubbed against the plastic so badly.

Thanks Willie, I see that it has the regular thicker flipper rubbers, but the ball return guides on this on are a little worn and I cant find replacements, so I thought thinner rubber would help.

Mailed your package yesterday by the way!
