Haven't seen a good one yet, fyi.

Very unpredictable motion. 

I have seen about 12 roll now.

On beat up wood, beat up old synthetics, and newer synthetics.

No one, absolutely no one, will admit it's not "that good."

I mean most of the proshops have charged top dollar for em, and many Preordered them, many got it just cause of belmo (except their short 500 revs)...Yet no one will say it sucks. 

Very weird. Most people will say yeah I hate it.

One poor guy went from the original batch phaze--his worn out VG nano hooks and carries circles around it btw-- to the timeless...I feel so bad!

Anywho...I threw one with my favorite layout very close to my span...All I can say is that it was so-so with my hyroad rolling much better.  Very marvel pearl like

I run a code black and it bites way too hard come second game. But comes back around 3rd game. I'm thinking the timeless would fit nicely once my code black is done. I'm still fairly newb but I am learning quickly to keep my hand behind the ball. I have become a down and in player so hoping it'll fit well.

I don't think the timeless is a ball down from r2s. The ball is a bit rolly.  I'd be thinking hyroad as the ball under the CB...

Thanks billdozer that's the input I'm looking for. How do you feel a wreckem would work in the step down area?

The Wreck-Em would fit perfectly in a major step down slot.

The wreckem "should" be the ball underneath a hyroad BUT my best experience with the neutron core is to no cross too many board with it, for me, it desires the track area/straight up. 

Personally I couldn't recommend it.

I could see balling down and moving left...

CB
Hyroad
Match pearl/hustle
Pitch black

You could slot solids in there as well where needed.

Surelock/phaze II
CB
DDtrick/torrent/!Q Tour solid
Hyroad
Wreck-it/match solid
Pitch Black

I'd rather see that sanded wreck-it in there than the wreck em!

I threw one and fill the same way. The motion is unpredictable, and frustrating.
SO I am trying to say I didn't like it.lol

The Wreck-it is one HELLUVA strong ball, I can barely use it, except on conditions with more volume, slightly longer patterns. I wouldn't recommend it personally, too much ball, imo.

The few I've seen it was very tame. Thanks for the heads up!

The early Wreck-it's that I seen when they first came out looked like they were finished at 300 grit. The latest ones I've seen haven't looked like that

Anytime bill;  there is something to this 1st/2nd batch pouring of balls that these  companies manufacture balls, every single Wreck-it seen as Luke posted months' ago was dead on the money, just way too early and too strong.

Different batches for different types of bowlers obviously. Mine is only gonna be used on heavier/long patterns only.

A few guys in my sport league have been killing it with the Timeless.  It seems to work well in the bigger handed bowlers.

I saw a young lady bowler throwing a Timeless next to me, in a league I sub in. The condition was light oil......I noticed her bowling in the second game. She literally got four completely different reactions out of this ball, in four consecutive frames!

One time a strong arc; another time, an angular hook-set look; another time, a late-breaking skid snap, and one other time, a long, very predictable arc.

WHoa!! I honestly don't think she knew what she was doing, or for that matter what the ball was going to do either!

This is not condemning it.....just an observation! She was a low-rev bowler for sure.
Some days you're the bug....some days you're the windshield...that's bowling!

I almost got my hands on one for cheaper to give it a try as a low risk high reward option. Couldn't convince the wife to let me get another ball. Already got 2 in a 2 month span. I really wanna try it to see what the fuss is about

Just to chime in, I've watched quite a few bowlers use this ball and I've seen practically everything already posted thus far, from the good (300 out of box) to the bad (can't miss left, can't miss right even on THS). Overall, much more so seeing the bad stuff than seeing the good stuff. I can't see myself ever getting one, especially at a premium price point.

This ball was a total exploitative money grab by Storm.
