What's your must have ball for 2013?
on: December 01, 2013, 07:36:32 AM
What's your must have ball for 2013? What ball gets the most use in your bag? What ball would you buy and save for when your current ball dies?

For me it's the Reax V2. I have only been throwing it for a few weeks now but the V2 is so clean through the front part of the lane with great backend. Carry is excellent.

Must have Eagle Pearl!  Double Clutch Pearl gets the most use.  Would like to replace with a Solar Flare.

Id say Lordfield Judgement. Ball is smooth, controllable, great benchmark ball. Nice looking and particle pearl cover with a very versatile core.

Roto Grip Disturbed. Most impressive ball I've thrown this whole year and I've thrown a lot this past 12 months. My only regret is not buying it when it first came out
Surface at 500/1000/2000/3000 and I can use ball all night on my ths. Just chase oil in and no over reaction. Great ball

I don't have a must have ball for 2013.  I think a 'must have' anything for me is seeking out a coach that can help me with my game.  I need more knowledge as to what I need to take out a 10 pin.  Not a flat ten.  I am consistently averaging 190 since I can make my spares but my strike percentage is way down which is hindering me with losing matches in league play.  I average about 2 strikes per game and they are far part.  I don't feel like I need a 'ball' to make me bowl better.  For me it's execution and learning what part of the lane to play in order to score better.  I must admit though, I am a ball whore.

Hy-Road is by far my most impressive ball of 2013. I am late to the whole "Storm's arguably best ball ever" thing, but I can see why everyone likes this ball. Smooth with enough backend to kick out the ten, hard hitting, even flaring, consistent ball reaction.

HyRoad. If I could only own one ball for the rest of my life, it would be this ball.

I was late to getting a Critical Theory but it was the most impressive ball for me in 2013.  I found it to be versatile on medium to heavy patterns and it gave me a different look that I was missing.  My Nomad Dagger and Frantic have been killers on THS this year.

As for the next ball that I'm looking at, it would be a Disturbed to replace my Outlaw.  I would also look at an IQ Tour Fusion, assuming it gets released in the states.  Absolutely love the hybrids out of Utah.

my Crossroad has been huge on ths and my Bounty has killed sport shots. Just got on the Defiant Soul train and that ball will be doing a lot of work for me on ths and sport.

I'd take an Arson Low Flare
Harley's Simi Bowl (Simi Valley, CA)
Sunset West (St George, UT)

Must have ball is the Totally Defiant. Motiv Primal Rage gets the most use for me.

Of all the bowling balls drilled its been the Strike King and the Ringer Platinum. They just work well.
you can't  add a physics term to a bowling term and expect it to mean something.

I still can't find that one ball that impressed me so much that I have to get another one. What works like a charm one week, turns into a dud the next.  Not the balls fault btw.
