Never. I still have my original New Standard gotten directly from them in 2004 and it's still one of the strongest and best pieces I own. They'll live in our hearts forever.

And I still have an Ultimate Power yet to drill, along with 3 other pieces I'll never sell (a Buzz, a Buzz Attack, a Counter Strike and an XS Power).

My driller has been ordering from them so the doors must still be open.

Totally agreed about being in our hearts forever, I just didn't want the last posting to be the final one. Currently in my loft to, as I have a Black Pearl, BPR, Blue Diamond, Buzz Attack, Buzz Premium, T Rebellion, T Resurrection and an Xtreme Damage still sitting in their boxes ready to be drilled up (& no, they are not for sale) Along with my Black Diamond, Ultimate Power, Dynamic Power, Big Bang, WCPP, Masterpiece and Big Kahuna already drilled I estimate I will still be bowling with L / LM until at least 2020 by which time I will probably drop dead. 

What's the concensus on the XS Power? It has a high diff for a power core doesn't it? I can still get one of these NIB at a very low price if I act fast.

I am not certain what the XS Power will be for me.
I originally drilled it pin under center of bridge and CG slightly kicked out, no weight hole. While I always loved its reaction, I never saw enough oil to use it. I recently redrilled it pin over the ring finger. My PAP is 5x0. This way it would save more energy for the small amount of oil I see regularly.

It was, as near as I can tell, a ball for medium to medium-heavy oil with a strong overall reaction, for the average revs, average ball speed bowler.

Agree with Charlest on the New Standard. Had my first 800 series with this ball this year. It will always be in my bag.

Also have the BuzzPE, HS2.0, and Terminator Resurrection.

Oily wan kenobi, your sitting on pot of gold. There is a NIB NS2, Yeah Baby, and Absolute Power on ebay for 199.00 each. Don't know if they will bring that price but that is the asking price.

Back to the RIP, not to me. L/M is what I bowl with.

I also use Lanemasters to this date. I have two Stings one high pin and one low pin, both 6-7 years old and still rolling like the day I bought them. Also use the Buzz, Buzz Attack, Widow Maker, The Buzz PE and Xtreme Damage and three others NIB.
Looks like I'm set for life. Would be interested in picking up the NS2 if someone had that in 14lbs.
Good luck bowling

Still use a dynamic power, and love the ball, its my go to oil ball, or when the right side of the lane is "squirty" on THS's, I just move deep inside with it. I get people asking me what ball it is all the time. Easily the BEST used ball I have ever picked up online. If I could find another one NIB I would buy it.

I think they are selling lane conditioner, lane cleaner and ball cleaner only! Teresa called several months ago and they were running a special on ball cleaner and she said they weren't making balls at the time and had some problems internally. If a pro shop is buying or bought from them it had to be left over stock!

Batbowler is correct. Delt with Teresa for years , always got great service from her. Now the company is down to oil and cleaner, it does not look good. Thanks for all the years of service.
