I know I'm gonna start a war here but in your opinion which company do you think makes the best equipment in the business and why?

Right now i would say storm/roto grip, but for an upcoming company would be motive, some people might not agree but that is my opinion.

I have had good success with Storm/Roto in the past but would have to say that 900G/AMF is putting out better equipment today that matches up with my game.  JMO.

As you can tell I really like the 900G and Storm made stuff.

I'll say Visionary for me,why?
cores are simple for the most part and work very good for my game.
covers hold up better then most IME.
price,best bang for the buck!

so far I have found every Visionary ball I've owned does what it's advertised to do.

only down side is they are not registered with the PBA but that's not a problem for me.

I will second what Six Pack said and for the same reasons, plus the customer service is excellent.

Hammer

For some reason the amount of traction I get in oil with hammer's equipment is sick. Must just match up to my game because before I was throwing storm and roto for the most part and they just hit weak for me.

was I able to score with both yes, but there were a lot of times where I just couldnt get my stuff to hook much at all. I just go with what matches my game and so far I have found that Hammer is the way to go for me.
