Ran into the local Sportsmart this weekend and lo and behold...
I encountered "Re-Makes," of the Orginal Nitro Urethane and CRUSH/R Reactive Resin bowling balls.
Both balls did not come in the Original Colors.
Nitro Urethane = Dark Blue Pearl with Neon Green Lettering (Website has Orange lettering though) (Same Original Logo)http://www.sportmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=1819311&cp=717754.711743.694986&parentPage=family
CRUSH/R = Black/Grey/White Swirl Pearl (Looks pretty much like the BIG TIME and looks nothing like the Original RED W/YEllow Lettering)http://www.sportmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=1819312&cp=717754.711743.694986&parentPage=family
Boxes indicate only weight and Top Weight is left blank. All balls that I saw have 0-1 inch pins.
FYI = Right now the Crush/R is $49.97 and the Nitro is $39.97 I Believe.
Does anyone have any information on these balls? Are they using the same Cores and Coverstocks?
I might pick up a CRUSH/R just to relive my youth. Paul "The Pizz," do you have any info?
