StringPin lets you redeploy your mechanic to focus on other priorities. StringPin uses three-phase power and smart technology that only runs motors when needed, so it uses less energy (and costs less to run). Having fewer parts to inventory further reduces your cost of ownership.

Approved for Tournament Play

Brunswick StringPin meets International Bowling Federation (IBF) specifications. This includes specifications related to kickback, kickback plates, pin deck, pins, gutter, and installation. The IBF announced in November 2021 that it has approved string pin technology for sport leagues and competitive tournament play worldwide. After careful study, the IBF concluded that string machines help proprietors address multiple business challenges, including keeping experienced maintenance technicians on staff, high equipment costs, and machine reliability concerns. The IBF also reported that bowling averages on string machines are very close to those bowled on freefall machines and that string machines do not give the bowler any significant scoring advantage.
