« on: June 13, 2012, 01:08:11 PM »
In your opinion, which Top 10 bowling balls would you pick from the 2011-2012 bowling season? This could be what you personally think or maybe what was used or won with on the PBA as well. So many to pick and choose from :o! What is your choice?

Since the houses I bowl at have long and/or heavy oil patterns, my personal favorite of 2011-2012 is the Roto Grip Defiant.  That ball handles oil really well and yet keeps energy to carry in the backend. 

Here is my list of the 10 favorite from this year that I have either thrown or seen:

1. Defiant
2. Critical Theory
3. Nomad Dagger
4. Rising Star
5. Sigma Hybrid
6. C-System Versa-Max
7. Vital Energy
8. Outlaw
9. Bandit
10. 919C

In my neck of the woods, the top 10 bowling balls rolled like this:
1.Frantic
2.Tropical Heat
3.Defiant
4.300C
5.Misfit
6.Epidemic
7.718A
8.Game Breaker
9.Jet Black
10.Cyclone pearl(gold/brownish)

Honorable mention to the Nano, Marvel, Nomad pearl, Bandit, Freeze, and Arson. There were just too many balls released at one time for any ball to get a firm hold of most bowlers' attention, though.

Pricing and health kept me out of the bowling ball market during the 2011-2012 season .. I did go for one ball that I think belongs in the best .. that is the Primal Impulse. I have also seen some of the Jet balls in action and I am impressed!

I probably sold 3 Ebonite Cyclones for every 1 of all the other reactive resin balls.  --  JohnP
