Lane Masters, Legends, Lord Field & Swag
on: June 07, 2018, 10:34:17 AM
In today's world everyone wants in on the latest & greatest trends. It's no different in the sport of bowling. Everyone flocks to the big name brands without ever giving the little guy a chance. To those people, let me ask these few questions.
1. Wasn't every company at one time a new and unproven product until tested by the bowlers?
2. Aren't all balls tested by the same standards and regulations?
3. Doesn't everyone wanna be at the forefront of change and evolution, especially for the betterment of what they love?
If you answered Yes to all these questions I only ask what is holding you and others back from trying these 4 great brands from a relatively unknown company in
California Bowling LLC. Most will say they've never heard of them before. Well now you have. A revitalization in the ball industry needs to happen now, especially with the changes coming in the next few years, and this is where it starts.
Please comment on why you or others won't give these smaller brands the opportunity and attention to impress you that they deserve. Thank you.

Our 2 piece balls (which hardly anyone produces nowadays) are mainly from our Legends line and are designed to last longer, keep pins low and elevate your carry percentage. We use high quality resins like any other company and have developed some exotic cores to give a wide range of ball motions to help enhance anyones game. I'm not a chemist nor do I try to sound like one, but the science that gets put into our equipment is on par with everyone else. We have an awesome range of equipment (Solids, Pearls and Hybrids) for any bowler starting at entry level and going all the way up to high performance pieces.

Oh I know about your equipment, I have thrown it. That's why I said what I did. Correct me if I am wrong but I don't think the California plant pores there own cores, is this correct?

If anybody wants to try these brands go to the Website.Several balls in 15# for 35$ to 65$.Older stuff but can maybe give you a feel for what the brands are like.https://www.californiabowlingllc.com/index.php/closeout

Great. I just bought 8 more balls for no freaking reason.

Those yeah baby balls would be tempting if didn't already go on Visionary buying spree.  Interesting core in those pieces lol.  Do like 2 piece balls but pushy reps not so much.

The original Yeah Baby was a fantastic ball, one of the better balls of that time. I've tried the current one and wouldn't pay to drill it even if I got the ball for free.

Ah good to know and from what I understand the original Yeah Baby is not the one on that website as its long out of production and that is what many would say is an inferior remake.  Sorry deleted original post.  Just trying to keep a low profile and avoid controversy and not throw poop.
Less is more especially with forum posts.

My question is why do they have 4 different brands to begin with? I just recently bought a Mighty Kong from someone off FB and it does actually roll pretty good. Tell me, what sets the 4 brands apart from each other to warrant them all being out there??

The new Swag brand has all new and exotic cores never before used. They are also equipped with an upgrade in coverstocks. They've all been recieved very well.
Legends by Lane Masters are most of our 2 piece balls that have had more time and cost put into their production.
Lane Masters in general and Lord Field are your typical companies line of equipment. Various different Solids, Pearl's and Hybrids coming in varying surfaces.

How come there are no test drives scheduled?
That would be a good way to let folks try out the equipment and see for themselves ball reaction, etc.

Oh, "SWAG" is a brand not a ball name??

when I hear the word "Swag" I think of many things. Someone or people who think someone is cool, got game. I honestly think that the word swag is kind of a ghetto persona attitude, pants dropped, and just not classy..... lol I remember someone telling me this.. S.W.A.G. "secretly we are gay"

Anyway, I wish every small business the best. I have tried their old stuff and they were good. But I got bored with them. I don't know what caused this, but just wasn't too appealing anymore - could be the bowlers who throw them locally and the ones I see on social media, just turned me off.

BTW, I'm not from a silver spoon. I'm just a regular dude who used to low ride and cruise the streets with the ladies, surfed with stoners, have ghetto friends, lived behind the DJ booth, and etc.. so the brand name SWAG isn't a catchy name IMHO.

While i have tried these balls a couple years ago when they first came out, one thing i did notice is they all did the same thing, for me and that was just 'roll'. I think that if they really want to get their brands out there and sell the stuff, they do need more test drives so people can try the stuff and make the decisions that way. Instead of blindly throwing 130+ shipping on a ball that nobody knows hardly anything about. Plus, their lineup has too many balls to quickly confuse potential bowlers. And they seem to come out with something new every 2-3 weeks.

Joe: Sometimes markets do not favor the "little guys." IMO this is one of those times, because currently all of the major players are offering outstanding equipment. It doesn't mean it will stay that way, but for the time being a smaller company would need to demonstrate extraordinary value in performance or price to compete. Sorry, but that is difficult to do currently.

There is absolutely no need for a 4th brand when you're not even on tour and sales are less than when lanemasters was decently big, ie...when the first Terminator came out, the balls came with cleaners etc.

It's not to hate on the swag brand but c'mon.

I've seen those Buzz series balls kill house shots. My total score was a Buzz Envy, 2 Buzz Drones, 2 Exodus Pearls (another good ball), Higgs Force and 2 Big Kahuna Tribals. I may never get around to throwing them all but I'm hoping to find a good look locally as I just moved and the house 5 minutes away HOOKS! And it has some great big money leagues. Long and smooth gets it done but a ball like my Badger is as aggressive as I can throw on their "fresh" league pattern, followed by a Track Logix.

Everyone wants what the pros are throwing ! to give 40-50,000 dollars to the PBA yearly is a lot of wasted money. the ball pricing is all about the same across the board. Most of the companies out there equipment only last about a year. Need resurfacing, oil removal, or cracking. L/M holds up !!! I thrown all of their equipment . It performs quite well ! You don't like it do throw it ! Its your loss !

Was looking at trying a Judgement Devastation but $27.50 just to ship the ball is ridiculous. All the other companies even on close outs offer free shipping. I have throw some of the older lane masters and legend balls and liked them. Just not willing to shell out $27.50 just for shipping.

I've thrown a lot of the original Legends/Lane Masters and think they were really good. The covers are very durable and had a thicker shell. Go to bowlerx.com and buy one on the closeout with free shipping, if you want to try one! Just my $.02, Bruce
