I routinely re-dip ours in liquid neoprene, available at any hardware store. This is an item that is often overlooked when maintaining your GMV, and is one that is pretty important in preventing target breakage, especially when throwing doubles off these traps....

That spring loaded bar that rides against the rear elevator is the worst POS design I have ever seen. The older Super stars did not have them at all and the newer ones routinely bounce out over the elevator locking both elevators down and causing broken birds when they drop all the way to the plate. What was this POS addition supposed to cure anybody know. My best guess is that they are supposed to stop the flex in the lift assembly and keep the wheel on the front of the assembly on the cam but I would think a flanged wheel would do as well without the added problems caused by the spring bar assembly.
