    Default Supplemental Bumpers for Bumper Boys????

    Since Bumper Boy is out of business I can't find replacement BB bumpers anywhere(if someone reads this and has some they want to sell pm me
    So I was wondering can I use the canvas launching bumpers made for Retriever-R trainer, Lucky Launcher II and DT Launcher? Will they fit and work with my derby doubles or is the hole on the bottom a different size? Thanks to all who reply!!!!!

    Check with Retriever Trainer. I know they're the same size and someone on here posted that they were going to make a longer bumper specifically for the Bumper Boys.

    I actually posted a video of me testing the Ret-R-Trainer bumpers on the BB launchers. They work fine.

    I believe the weight difference will require a less power load ....The removal of the O rings will relieve some of the pressure too....Steve S

    You can also use different length spacers made from 3/4" PVC pipe slid over the BB barrel.
