Marco Specialties introduces Super-Bands™ high-reliability pinball flipper bands

Lexington, SC — Marco Specialties, a leading pinball parts e-retailer, today announced the new line of Super-Bands™ high-reliability pinball flipper bands. Super-Bands™ are advanced, custom-formulated, polyurethane rings (a.k.a. urethane flipper rings) designed for pinball machine flippers and bumpers. Super-Bands™ are superior to traditional flipper rubber with better durability and better ball control, translating to increased reliability, reduced operating costs, and better player satisfaction for pinball machines in both commercial and collector environments. Super-Bands are available in a wide variety of original equipment and unique colors.
