According to Barry Engler, pinball industry veteran and relatively new manager at American Pinball, all New In Box machines sold by AP will come with silicone Titan bands installed. This is a huge plus in my book. I always end up changing all of the rubbers in all of the machines in my home collection to Titans. I still need to order Titans for my new Mandalorian and Deadpool.
This move will save future AP buyers the expense and perhaps even more importantly the trouble of pulling all sorts of parts off of their machines to swap better rubbers in those hard to reach spots on their pin. Kudos to American Pinball for making the switch!
