Replacing Scandal
on: March 20, 2017, 12:23:03 PM
Need help on replacing my Scandal. I was looking at the Pitbull and Mako. Not going with the Gauntlet as it need some type of friction.The Cash I have thrown and not impressed with it. I also came to the conclusion that since Hammer is not paying me that I need to venture out.
I am looking for a ball for Heavy oil only. Close to the Scandal or stronger.

You may want to rethink the Gauntlet.  I loved my Scandal and the Gauntlet is very similar but with a stronger backend reaction.

It may help to know WHY you want to replace the Scandal? Only asking because if you want something close to the Scandal why not go with another Scandal with a new surface or layout? You know what you are getting that way.

I have a Mako and a Gauntlet.  both are good replacements for a Scandal because I had one of those also.  THe Mako is a little stronger than the Scandal but about the same shot shape.  THe gauntlet is much stronger and much more on the back end.

And that is the difference between the asymmetric core the Mako has, versus the symmetric core of the Scandal.
