on: August 09, 2017, 04:33:36 PM
I have several older nib bowling balls from different manufacturers and want to know if they still have any value. All 16lbs

Raging red fuse
Purple fuse
Neotac chameleon
Visionary Pearl gargoyle
Seemsic aftershock
Storm X factor

If you have an interest, let me know..

Is that the Slate Blue Gargoyle?  If so darn one day too late just got a Fab Black Hammer for my dry lane hard urethane ball but that thing will get down the lane better and would be better for completely fried lanes.

There are people who will pay good prices for a NIB X Factor

I loved the khameleon!  At one point, I had four in the bag!  I'd need a big-a@@ weight hole to get it down to 14lb 😀

Raging red was the best of the Fuze line by far.  It kind if got overshadowed when the Inferno with Activator came out.

Yeah that gargoyle immediately caught my attention as well but alas just got done adding a handful of Faball to arsenal so no more 16lb gems for awhile.

Pearl Gargoyle could be any one of two pearls that were in the Gargoyle line.

Slate Blue was the urethane and the reactive pearl was the Green (skid-snap).


Edited to remove Violet as a pearl when it was a 1500 polished solid.

The Violet Gargoyle is a solid. I am still throwing one, and have another NIB-along with 2 Green Gargoyles NIB, and a Granite NIB.

I love Visionary!!!

Darn not the slate blue still no such thing as a bad gargoyle.  As you can probably tell fair number of people on here like the gems.

Oops, you're right.  The Violet was a solid.  I was going from memory and thought it was a polished pearl.  Just checked and it was a polished solid. 

Well, at least now I know why I remembered it as more controllable.  :)
