Radical Bowling - Phil Cardinales New Company
« on: February 09, 2011, 11:38:50 AM »
Blurb from BJI:

 

• Phil Cardinale has founded Radical Bowling LLC, a new bowling ball company specializing in the creation and distribution of high-performance bowling balls. Cardinale, who spent the last three years in charge of sales and marketing for 900 Global, left that company at the end of 2010 to start Radical Bowling. “After decades of accumulating knowledge on the development and manufacturing of bowling balls, I felt it was time to use that experience out on my own,” Cardinale said. “I wish to create the best bowling balls for bowlers of any skill level, particularly mid- to high-average bowlers looking to improve their score and level of play.” Info: www.radicalbowling.com

Anyone have any other information?

I thought Phil owned Global 900?  Was he just partnering with someone else?

Where else did he work/own? Was it Dynothane? Did he ever work for Track?

Phil was with Track back in the Enforcer/T-Shark days, late 80's/early 90's

I thought he was with Track at one point or another.

 

I just drilled up a 15lb Track Synergy ETS to start the season. The ball is every bit as good as the one I had back in 97. Hate that I sold the NIB Synergy Pearl last year, but decided to only keep one.

Could be, but it also could be the same relationship as Lane 1 has with Global. Completely different company, but Global pours for Lane 1. I would not consider Lane 1 another brand of Global, unlike Ebonite with Hammer/Track/Columbia.

 

Same can be said when Banger was poured by Visionary. Completely different company, but someone had to pour Banger's stuff.

Interesting.  I wonder if there was a fall out or something between Phil and the other guys?

 

http://www.manta.com/c/mm3cffq/dynothane - says that Phil is/was the owner of 900global.

 

Original press release said "Mike Sellers and Phil Cardinale, former VPs of Columbia Industries, have joined forces to form 900 Global LLC.........Joining Mike Sellers (Operations) and Phil Cardinale (Sales and Marketing) will be Eric Thomas (Sales), Dale Garner (Sales / Customer Service), Dan Speranza (Operations) and George Brooks (Operations). "

 

Another article about the remote control bowling ball had him listed at the "co-CEO."

 

Also seen him labeled at the "President" of 900global.

 

I remember back after C300 was bought out that Phil alluded to starting up 900global.  Don't have the exact words or anything, but something along the lines that Ebonite didn't really want the factory and couldn't use all the equipment, so if somebody had money saved up they could theoretically buy the stuff and start making their own balls.........a little while later we had 900global.

 

Either way, if it is true then good for him.  If the balls are good they will find a place in the market.  The first "original" 900g ball was great (Break S70).

Good luck Phil.

 

Phil was one of the original employee's of Star Traxx which later became Track. He's one's of the pioneer's of the modern bowling ball. I'm sure whatever Phil and Radical Bowling decide to put on the market will be a hit.


3 holes of fun!!

Phil WAS NOT an employee of Star Traxx! Never!  Dick Haas owned Star Trak, and he purchased urethane from Phil Cardinale and Paul Seegot. When Dick fell behind in his payments, Phil started Track, Inc. using the materials he sold Dick Haas. Track, Inc. was made in the Star Trak plant. Phil sold Dick Haas the cheap urethane. They ended up in a lawsuit. When Dick Haas paid off his debt, (Phil actually sued Dick is why I hate him), Phil sold Track Inc. and all the machines to make bowling balls to  Columbia 300 and he then started Dynothane. Dick Haas regrouped with investors George Pappas and Tom Kouros and he started Star Traxx in 1990 and was gone again by 1992.
 
Dick Hass: Star Trak 1975-1989
Dick Hass: Star Traxx 1990-1992
Phil Cardinale: Track, Inc. 1989-1991
Phil Cardinale: Columbia- Dynothane 1992-2007
Phil Cardinale: 900 Global 2007-2010
