What to chose ???
on: December 31, 2017, 10:34:41 AM
New league starting soon. I get my choice of one of two balls. Sure Lock or No Rules. I currently have a Alpha Crux with some miles on her and a Hy Road. Both these have been excellent for me. What ball to chose Sure Lock or No Rules?. My thoughts retire the Alpha and keep the Hy Road. Maybe a a 3rd ball later to fill in the gap. Any advise as far as that goes would be helpful as well. Thanks for advise. Happy New Year.

If it's the OG No Rules and not the Exist or Pearl, then I think the Sure Lock is the better of the two balls.

No Rules Pearl

Haven't thrown either but seen a lot on here say they liked the Alpha Crux more than the Sure Lock so might be some disappointment.  Might be able to still get a Alpha Crux NIB which might be worth it.

Probably should go with the Sure Lock. Don't be afraid to change the cover to fine tune it.
Main Rotation: Lit, GB2, Torrent, Mission, Hy-Road Pearl, Purple Pearl Urethane.
Soon: Rocketship, Dare Devil

Depends on what's the most important factor you're looking for.  No Rules will be more similar to the Alpha in terms of ball motion.  The Sure Lock is a little more hook and a little more on the back end than both of them.

I have had both balls.  I prefer the Sure Lock.

One of my buddies, who is a ball driller swears by the Sure Lock!
