Title: Hook Juice Home Edition $50!!!!! Seems abit pricey
Post by: Aloarjr810 on November 29, 2017, 09:34:13 AM
Has anybody ponied up $50 and tried Hook Juice Home Edition yet

https://ctdbowling.com/products/hook-juice-home-edition?variant=1042845401115 (https://ctdbowling.com/products/hook-juice-home-edition?variant=1042845401115)

$50 for one treatment and you do it every 50 games. That bucket you mix up better do a bunch of balls.

Please don't tell me anyone is actually considering this.  This is tragic from start to end, all it does is capitalize on a bunch of misconceptions and misinformation that are/is prevailing in the industry.  It's just taking advantage of the ignorance that has been created by some in the industry because ignorance is profitable.  This WAS however the funniest video I've seen today, so thanks for the laugh . . I mean, did no one notice that the first couple shots were being thrown on a completely different line and MUCH faster than the last shot after the "magic juice?"  Yeah if I take an Outcry and throw it right through the middle of the lane at 22 mph it's probably going to blow the breakpoint, but if all the sudden I slow it down and catch the friction a whole arrow and a half further right, it might do something.  I specifically like how the camera is set up to hide everything about the ball reaction.  Stuff like this pisses me off because it's just a gimmick, if you want the ball tackier, buy an 8 dollar bottle of any one of the dozens of cleaners out there that make the ball tacky.

Not to mention that you can accomplish the same thing with just a bucket of warm water and a little bit of degreasing dish soap.

"We have a coupon you can use for $10 off. Just send a email to help@ctdbowling.com It's recommended to do one ball so that you don't have the oil/chemicals removed from one ball mixed in with another ball."

Then what exactly is it doing? Altering the surface as well? Come on man... $50 (or even $40) for one use is a rip off no matter what it is doing. You can accomplish the same for much cheaper. De-oil using whatever method and alter the surface using various products. All that can be done for much cheaper per ball. This crap is a rip off.

My product is better and cheaper. For 39.99 I have simply green. I mean Hook Green Juice and it will give you a 299 every game. But wait! If you buy now, I have Dawn, I mean Max hook which will give you 300 every game.
So you get Simply green, I mean Hook Green and Dwan, I mean Max Hook for 39.99.
Who needs hook juice when you can average 300. The best part is the solution works for all your bowling balls.

Post by: Aloarjr810 on December 01, 2017, 02:25:03 PM
The posts about this stuff really are confusing. Someone needs to coordinate the marketing materials.
 
Rons FB post says:
"Improve the backend performance of your bowling ball for 50 plus games."

But the very next day they say:
"Need more backend hook permanently? Try This"

So the backend lasts how long? 50 games or is it a permanent increase?

Then you got this:
"Hook Juice is a permanent enhancement in backend reaction and is only done every 50 games"

It's contradicting itself.

If it's a permanent enhancement, why do you have to do it again 50 games later? .

Then theres these ads

the first one says 2-8oz bottles is one treatment, (Thats 16oz for one shot)
(plus it looks like it says something about 24hours cant make it out)

but a few days later its one 32oz bottle does one treatment.

So you ponied up $50 for it?

It may well work, But let's face it. It's $50 for just a de-oiling bath that only does one ball and you have to do every 50 games.

$50 depending on where your at, can get a detox and a resurface, with change left over.

The marketing seems suspect too.

The org. HJ Home Ed. product starts out, being sold as 2 -8oz. bottles saying 16oz. will just do one ball.

Then a short time later it changes to 1- 32oz. bottle that says 32oz. will just do one ball.

I'm guessing what happen here was someone in marketing looked said well $50 for 16oz. will sound like too much for too little, so they upped the bottle size and changed the instructions to still get you to use it all so you had to come back and buy more.

The 32oz bottle probably actually will do at least two balls if you used the org. instructions. (And most likely more than that)

Here's the Original demo video for Hook Juice(Non home version) from a year ago.

You got to wonder though, which had more influence on cleaning the ball the Juice or that Jayhawk Detox machine it was cooking in?




All kidding aside, The Hook Juice may well work just fine.

But it does seem very over priced for what it does and how few balls it's good for. I mean a quart per ball?

If that quart bottle had been a concentrate for $50 and you used only a ounce per ball, that would get the price per ball cleaning down to $1.56. That would be a bit more reasonable.

or

If they had come up with say a Kool-aid size package of chemicals for $1.99, that you could mix in a bucket of hot water that did the same thing for one ball (Removed oil and made it feel tacky) and it worked.

They probably couldn't make it fast enough to keep it on the shelf.

But $50 bottles are not going to be moving that fast

Been using remedy X and clean and dull for many years.. I have balls with over 50 games.. (currently itís my rave) they still hook.. and when the house does things to the pattern and/or lane surface..I get too much hook on my 4 to 6 year old balls..

This is the reason I donít buy the purple rain and gin and juice...

As someone that probably has 200 games or more on a ball that I brought at the start of summer, this stuff would break me. Why would I spend more than the cost of the ball to keep rejuvenating it when I can hand a friend a $10 bill to put it in his homemade ball over when it starts to stop feeling tacky when I clean it?

Its not just a cleaner or de oiler. It changes the properties of the ball to make it perform better. Im not a chemist, Ive detoxed balls before and see the differences. It will improve a new ball also, not just one thats oiled up. Seems like everyone likes to bash a new idea or concept without trying it. I'm not saying to go out and spend money on it, but to knock it down without trying it seems very amateurish. I used it, I like it, thats all I can say.

If it really does change the properties, then wouldn't it be illegal to use?  Aren't the bowling balls approved by USBC as is, and any changes to those properties would mean it was a different ball and would have to be approved?

You are not chemist? Are you are materials engineer? A scientist of any discipline? It is mixed with water and it magically changes the properties of the ball? How? What is it changing? What is the need for the warm water? Please tell me what is in this magical HOOK JUICE?  ::) If it indeed does change the properties of the ball say like how Acetone does it would be illegal. My guess is you work with or are the snake oil salesmen in the video but that is a guess I can't prove it... Sort of like how you can't prove the HOOK JUICE does anything. :P

Post by: RonaldHickland on December 04, 2017, 09:22:44 AM
I really appreciate the comments and wanted to help clarify a few things.  Hook Juice is legal as it doesn't soften the ball. This product has been in use by consumers for more than a year.  Our first beta home version was 2- 8 ounce bottles. The final product is 1- 32 oz bottle.  We did this because the truth is people don't read the label. We wanted to make sure the product worked even if they were slightly off with the ratio. Unlike hot water / whatever else you want to add to it. This product improves the performance, by increasing the backend hook. That's important, because most products that increase hook do it mechanically,like sanding, that make the ball hook earlier not later.  This product even works on a brand new ball.  It's a chemical change to the cover more than a cleaning of the cover. That is what makes it different than other products that exist.  The Pro Shop Version uses a Detox, and speeds up the process to 30 min. Since you mentioned the cost, I wanted to say thank you for sharing the product with the ball reviews community and offer you a 50% off coupon to try it for yourself. So you can try it for $25 available for 1 week.

I always have appreciated this group, even when I was at EBI. Love us or hate us we appreciate the promotion. If you want more information or have more questions send a email to help@ctdbowling.com

Just type in HJ50 when you check out for 50% off of Hook Juice

It's a chemical change to the cover more than a cleaning of the cover. That is what makes it different than other products that exist. 

 Then, BY THE STRICTEST DEFINITION, it IS illegal.

 When you chemically change the ball, you alter it from the configuration that was approved by the U.S.B.C., and circumvent the approval process altogether. You are skirting the rules by offering a product that chemically alters the surface of the ball, and you damn well know it. You worked in the industry long enough to know better, yet youíre still doing it.

SHAME ON YOU.

 I.M.H.O., you are either a liar out to make a buck off the innocence of peopleís ignorance, or an outright idiot that doesnít understand the English language.

It's a chemical change to the cover more than a cleaning of the cover. That is what makes it different than other products that exist. 

 Then, BY THE STRICTEST DEFINITION, it IS illegal.

 When you chemically change the ball, you alter it from the configuration that was approved by the U.S.B.C., and circumvent the approval process altogether. You are skirting the rules by offering a product that chemically alters the surface of the ball, and you damn well know it. You worked in the industry long enough to know better, yet youíre still doing it.

SHAME ON YOU.

 I.M.H.O., you are either a liar out to make a buck off the innocence of peopleís ignorance, or an outright idiot that doesnít understand the English language.

 Either way, I will never use your junk.

So, you won't be taking advantage of that one week only 50% offer then?  ;D

Like I said..I paid for it, I used it and it worked. Im not a chemist, scientist or engineer. I bowl, I know what works and what doesnt. I'm not pimping the product here and never posted about it until I saw this thread. If you want to take my word for it, fine, if you think its snake oil, fine. Do what you want. Criticizing a ball or a product without using it or seeing it used is foolish. Just my opinion.

As long as I'm making money I'll spend it on whatever I want. I can buy 50 new balls if I wanted but I wanted to try the product. I have a snap lock didnt want to get rid of it so I saved it. I have a successful business selling on Amazon....hence the name. But I'm not dollar foolish, I can buy any ball but why throw away another 200 bucks? I "risked" a big 50...and it paid off. And before anyone asks, I dont sell bowling products on Amazon or anywhere else. I sell products and if anyone had something negative to say about it without trying it they would be pretty stupid. My suggestion would be for any of you negative types that are against Hook Juice.....Dont buy it, but to sit there and be a keyboard warrior talking bad about something you know nothing about...makes you look like an idiot. I never used used Turbo tape, it sucks, its snake oil, not worth the 15 bucks a roll, it comes off easy...BUT I never used it...lol

The CTD products are all pretty high priced, But that's to be expected from a boutique company that produces a limited range & quantity of very specialized goods.

While I haven't used it I'm pretty sure Ron Hicklands Hook Juice H.E. product probably works as claimed, I've used That Purple Stuff and it works well.

But IMO $50 for a one ball at home treatment is pretty steep regardless of the results. When there are comparable, lower cost alternatives that could produce similar results.

$50 is a fairly decent used ball (hell new during Black Friday).  His product may make more sense at that price point if bowling balls cost a grand or something.

I am not for or against Hook Juice - however, show me where in the USBC Equipment Specifications and Certifications Manual where it says you cannot chemically alter a ball at all?  The manual specifically states the following in regards to chemicals:

The use of chemicals, or other methods, to change the hardness of the surface of the ball after it is manufactured is prohibited.

All that says to me is do not use chemicals to change hardness, it does not say do not use chemicals.  Cleaners are chemicals.  The only ones they ban during competition are the ones that change hardness.  I am assuming that Hook Juice is not changing the surface hardness via chemicals (like acetone).  The question really is then, if it's not changing surface hardness and if it's not snake oil, what is it doing and should it be legal?

I really appreciate the comments and wanted to help clarify a few things.  Hook Juice is legal as it doesn't soften the ball. This product has been in use by consumers for more than a year...

According to Hickland, it has been used for over a year.

 What I am saying is that nobody is trying to sell me acetone and telling me it is fine to use it on my bowling ball when they know it isnít legal to use.

 Mr. Hickland IS trying to sell this stuff, and telling everyone it is fine, it is great, come get you some right now cause you need it.

 Let him produce USBC certification that it is, in fact, legal to use, and I will get off of him and his hook juice, and get on USBCís ass for certifying a product that chemically alters a balls composition from it initial configuration.

Let's talk about this shall we?  In the first video, the ball before hook juice struck, albeit not impressively.  Then we "improve" the reaction with hook juice, and the ball goes through the face and gets 5.  So 5 pins are better than 10? 

Anyone who thinks extra hook or extra backend automatically makes the ball better is absolutely incorrect.  It is entirely conditional, this is such an antiquated way of thinking when I used to have all kinds of people come in asking for the biggest hooking ball on the wall.  It would be like playing a round of golf using your driver for every shot.  "Well it hits the ball the furthest so it has to be the bestest!!" 

Step 1: Buy the ball you need or want, make the appropriate cover adjustments to dial it in for you and the condition.

Step 2: Use a shammy, it prevents the vast majority of oil absorption, which is the factor that will make it lazy on the backend.

Step 3: Regularly clean your ball.

Step 4: If it loses reaction, give it an oil extraction, preferably a Detox, return surface to where you had it. 

That is all.  That is all that needs done if the ball loses reaction, it's not $200 for a new ball instead of $50 for hook juice like you claim, it's $50 or less for a Detox, a resurface, or both to get the ball back to where it was and where you need it via treatments that actually work and are completely transparent and understandable rather than $50 for some hocus pocus.  Never in my life have I seen a concentrate solution that you need the whole 32 ounce bottle for.  Simple Green you need like an ounce per gallon of water. 

Furthermore, Ron claiming "well people don't read the label and we wanted to make sure people got the ratio right."  Really?  There are a lot of times people don't read the instructions, but you give somebody a bottle of something and tell them mix some of this with water and soak it, the VERY FIRST QUESTION THEY WILL ASK WILL BE, "oh, ok, well how much do I use?"  With cleaner, it's always, "how much or how often?" 

Hook Juice and the idea is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS, all it does is take advantage of the vast and myriad misconceptions in the bowling world to make a buck, that's all this is.  There is no data provided, there is no measure of how much it "improves" performance, it's likely just a generic cleaner or a mixture of them with some food coloring with an extremely poor quality infomercial. 

As long as I'm making money I'll spend it on whatever I want. I can buy 50 new balls if I wanted but I wanted to try the product. I have a snap lock didnt want to get rid of it so I saved it. I have a successful business selling on Amazon....hence the name. But I'm not dollar foolish, I can buy any ball but why throw away another 200 bucks? I "risked" a big 50...and it paid off. And before anyone asks, I dont sell bowling products on Amazon or anywhere else. I sell products and if anyone had something negative to say about it without trying it they would be pretty stupid. My suggestion would be for any of you negative types that are against Hook Juice.....Dont buy it, but to sit there and be a keyboard warrior talking bad about something you know nothing about...makes you look like an idiot. I never used used Turbo tape, it sucks, its snake oil, not worth the 15 bucks a roll, it comes off easy...BUT I never used it...lol

Your retort?

You know everything Luke said is true and you are selling shit in a bottle. I still love the name though......Wish it was a legit product.....

But C'mon Man it's HOOK JUICE :o :o :o
Lets All say it again HOOK JUICE  :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

Let's talk about this shall we?  In the first video, the ball before hook juice struck, albeit not impressively.  Then we "improve" the reaction with hook juice, and the ball goes through the face and gets 5.  So 5 pins are better than 10? 

Anyone who thinks extra hook or extra backend automatically makes the ball better is absolutely incorrect.  It is entirely conditional, this is such an antiquated way of thinking when I used to have all kinds of people come in asking for the biggest hooking ball on the wall.  It would be like playing a round of golf using your driver for every shot.  "Well it hits the ball the furthest so it has to be the bestest!!" 

Step 1: Buy the ball you need or want, make the appropriate cover adjustments to dial it in for you and the condition.

Step 2: Use a shammy, it prevents the vast majority of oil absorption, which is the factor that will make it lazy on the backend.

Step 3: Regularly clean your ball.

Step 4: If it loses reaction, give it an oil extraction, preferably a Detox, return surface to where you had it.
