Waiting for a new AMF ball....
« on: January 19, 2016, 11:07:01 AM »
Here I sit waiting for AMF to announce new balls for 2016. In the meantime, all of my bowling buddies are looking at the new balls their company of choice has announced. My patience is growing thin with 900 Global's handling of AMF and Motiv is looking better everyday. I even talked to a Motiv staffer at my tournament this past weekend. People that know me had a heart attack.
Balls: Motiv Forza GT, Motiv Primal Rage Remix, Motiv Ascent Pearl and Motiv (On The Ball) spare ball.. All made in the USA.

Given history, you should see something in the next month and a half.
Go Global or Go Home!

In my opinion there isnt a big difference between the technology each company uses right now. Why limit yourself if you really need/want another ball

Is there a hole in your arsenal that AMF or 900G can't fill?  Or are you just pining for the newest ball?

+1 Billdozer. Pretty much Nirvana on down is less than $140/shipped anywhere online. Cant beat that value. Mastermind's are like $110 at Buddies.

Since Bowlmor now owns the AMF name, this delay makes me wonder if Bowlmor wants to continue to pay for having bowling balls made under the AMF name?
I'm guessing that they (Bowlmor) are the ones who are actually contracting with 900G to market, distribute, design and make AMF300 brand balls.

Unless things have changed Global pays a royalty to use the AMF name.

Charlest and Itsallaboutme,

Bowl-Mor has NOTHING to do with AMF bowling balls produced by 900 Global. 900 Global has a license from Qubica-AMF to make bowling balls under the AMF name. Qubica-AMF is the owner of the AMF name when it comes to bowling balls.

Unfortunately, there is no way that Qubica-AMF is getting any real return from 900 Global with such a limited release of AMF branded bowling balls. Qubica-AMF should consider moving the license to another company.

have you ever thought, maybe AMF only wants to release a limited amount of balls a year? We complain about most companies releasing too many and now this one only releasing 4...

I wish other companies would follow suit, it is way beyond ridiculous how many so called new balls come out each year. I must say I like Rotos schedule, twice a year. Gives me a chance to get excited about their new releases.

I do have one question. AMF bowler how come you didn't buy a Pure, Encore or Unreal? You want AMF to come out with new balls, yet they did last year but I don't see any of them in your signature. I really am also shocked that you are looking at Motiv to switch brands from AMF, yet you won't drill a 900 Global ball which is the maker of AMF equipment. That truly makes zero sense.

I do have a Pure. It's not in the bag at the moment. I don't need an Encore or an Unreal. The Encore has almost matching specs to the Pure Adrenaline which I already have so that is pointless. I don't even see the need for that ball. The Unreal would be a step backwards for me and my style.

I'm not going to reward 900 Global for killing the AMF brand. Plus, Motiv is a Michigan company which is where I live. Plus, I like their bowling balls and Motiv is a complete bowling ball company.
