This ball just changed my life... so this is what it feels like to be in love.

Decided to try it out while I had some free time, but I just went out on the lanes in street shoes...

...proceeded to shoot 269.

IMMEDIATELY went back and got my shoes. Ended up shooting 300 and 221, and I didn't move a SINGLE board the 3rd game. I wanted to see exactly how much forgiveness and room I had with this ball. If anything, the only thing I did was project the ball down the lane just a little bit more.

790 in street shoes the first game and not moving a single board the 3rd game. The ball was absolutely magical. It hit harder than anything I've thrown in a long time. I honestly felt like Tommy Jones out there.

I haven't felt this way since I first got my Spit Fire...

Ah... :mrgreen:

Thats pretty cool. You know, when they first released this, and the original one again, i thought that line may have a chance and they might start making new ones. Maybe thats one thing that ebonites doing since they are stopping half of their entire line. Ive always thought that the one series was great, every ball i had in that series was awsome. And even tommy jones said in that 10 questions thing on pba.com that his favorite ball of all time is the one, just because he won so many events with it and just dominated with it. Thats great on recent success though. From what ive seen, it looks like its a great ball.

I just used my new Strom Gravity Shift today and that thing just puneshes the pins. I carryed 2 4 pins, a 2-8 and a 2-4-8. It goes very long and backends like carzy if you have lots of revs. I really dries up the lanes a lot more then my Mystic. As high as my rev rate is, all my Mystic does is push oil down the lane. I never use to burn up the lane. My teamate Frank bowled with his plastic spare ball the entire 3rd game because there was so much friction built up from the Garvity Shift. I was shocked with the results. I shot 229 263 and 234 today. The only problems ran into when hitting the pocket were a couple of stone 9's. Other then that they all go down cause the thing hits so hard. I can't remember the last time i bowled this consistant. I know exactly how you feel Korean2908.

I have checked lots and lots of sites. They all have the spit fire, sadly though none of them have a 15lber....

The One Pearl would not work at my house. The manager said the backends are soft right now. The One Pearl would want to go too long and not recover to the pocket especially if you like hooking the ball. However it helps with holding pocket.
