    Hello,
    I know this comes up occasionally and the answer seems to change over time.
    Who has decent Black and White rubber in Bulk currently? Needed for about a dozen machines.
    Few years ago got some that was like it was made of clay. Flipper rubbers would fall off after a few days to stretched out. Rubbers would break just putting them on. Have not bought any in a while and need to.
    Thank You

    I've had good luck with the traditional rubbers that PBResource supplies.

    I've heard good things about the silicone rubber that Titan Pinball sells: https://www.titanpinball.com/

    Are you looking for traditional rubber or silicone? For traditional, Pinball Life is a good place. For silicone, Titan pinball definitely has the best. They have a very good feel to them and seem to last a long time.

    Not sure those guys sell "in bulk" like he asked.

    Titan offers 100 ring kits for a discount over standard list.

    Pinball life offers 10%, 15% and 20% discount for quantity.

    I did not know they did that. That's a good deal. Thx.

    Marco's are the best quality I've found, PBResource are good too..

    I wouldn't buy that crap the other guys sell.

    I haven't bought rubber in a while. Last time I wound up with a bunch of too-soft stuff that was also too fat to work correctly on my EMs. Right size, but the ball couldn't even make it through the gap in some instances.

    Wish I remembered where I got it... but has that issue worked itself out with suppliers yet, or do I still need to be wary? Need to buy a bunch soon!

    Whoops, o-din's new post while I was typing seems to indicate the latter. Any further input is appreciated!

    I'll put it this way. I have been using Marco's for the last few years an the quality is always there and consistent. And have done quite a few games and they are all holding up well. I have thrown out whatever was left of what I got from the other highly touted pinside vendor.

    I live by the rule do it right once and you don't have to redo it because of crappy parts.
