13197 - Miscellaneous / Re: PBR Series Bowling Ball Racks
« Last post by MI 2 AZ on Today at 11:01:10 PM »
Have two of these my wife got me as gifts and built herself no problems (she's pretty handy, but assembling these racks a breeze) and they really uncluttered our walk in closet  so I don't hesitate to recommend at least the 12 ball rack to anyone (sure others good as well).  Very sturdy and its so nice to have your arsenal right at your fingertips and not have to go through totes or even worse ball boxes in the garage to grab what you want.  Have had zero problems with balls cracking but also rotate regularly.

As someone else who lives in AZ, I would make sure to put them in plastic bags before putting them on the rack.  Additional insurance.

What’s your axis? That layout and skid/flip aren’t really in the same zip code.
Agreed. That is something usually on the smoother side of the spectrum. But if you had a Son!Q drilled to be skid/flip, a Phaze with some surface and possibly a layout change would be a different shape altogether. Don't know if it would be my preferred complimentary piece, but it is an option.

52909 - Storm / soniq vs phaze
« Last post by sneaky PETE on Today at 07:55:20 PM »
i have a soniq right now with a skid/snap layout (sorry don't know the numbers) and was thinking of getting a phaze and putting a layout on it for a smoother reaction. saw that these balls were kinda close on BTM comparison chart with the main difference being the back end and length and was wondering is it worth getting a phaze if i already have a soniq.
here is the layout on the soniq

Storm Match Up Black Pearl
Layout: Pin 4.5 inches and below the ring finger, with a weight hole below mid-line
Rev Rate: 300 rpm
Testing information: 41 foot THS (medium to light volume)
Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center
Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane

Ready.Aim.Fire – the Match Up Black Pearl is here.  This ball is ready to make an impact.  The combination of the Reactor Pearl Coverstock, the Stinger 2.0 core, and the 2000 Matte finish is a good match. I know there are a lot of bowlers just like me that like to see a solid color ball going down the lane so the Match Up Black Pearl will fit your eye.
I drilled this ball with a pin down layout with a low weight hole.  The rings on the track flare were relatively tight and the bow-tie was at the top left edge of my middle finger.   The total flare was about 4 inches.
We compared the Match Up Black Pearl to the Match Up Hybrid (a very under rated ball in its own right) and my all time favorite, the Hy-Road.   I could stand and play very similar lines with both Match Ups, but the Hybrid was more angular.  The difference in layouts could have been part of the reason.  The Match Up Black Pearl definitely had a different motion though, which was expected and a good thing.  The pearl coverstock of the Match Up Black Pearl created some hold area to the left and the matte finish helped blend out the motion at the end of the pattern without losing a strong motion on my misses to the right.   My Hy-Road was one and one right of the Match Up Black Pearl and more angular also.
In my opinion, a THS is not when the Match Up Black Pearl is going to shine.  I can see myself using this ball when I need a ball to roll up a little sooner to create a better angle to the pocket.  The Match Up Black Pearl will also be useful when the back-end of the pattern is critical. 
This is another great value ball by Storm.  The Match Up Black Pearl provides a good amount of hook and hitting power for the price.  #Stormnation

Anyone ever consider it's not the equipment…. It's the bowler?.

Typically whoever has the most bowlers under their brand usually ends up "dominating" said event. If Belmo or Liz Johnson win tournaments X, Y, and Z using A, B, or C what does that do for me?  Considering I throw it nothing like either,  and don't bowl either tour… I'm guessing nothing different then any other brand.

I loved Brunswick for years and switched to EBI and noticed zero difference. The only reason I switched was for a little more variety across 4 brands.  If I went back to Brunswick brands there would be no issue.  If a company makes bad equipment they will be out of business quickly these days.

+1 also. Have good balls from all the major families I enjoy.  As Dylan said

Advertising signs that con you
Into thinking you're the one
That can do what's never been done
That can win what's never been won
Meantime life outside goes on all around you

Did anyone notice that Liz Johnson missed her first PWBA cut?

As you would expect, Liz is always a factor and didn't miss the cut by much. The shot was inside, which doesn't favor her game. Still, she didn't miss the cut by very much.

I'm just fortunate that the tournament was only about 15 minutes from my house and I got to watch the extremely talented ladies bowl for two days  ;D
