Next Stateside Code
on: January 08, 2017, 12:05:01 AM
Ready for a Code Red to come stateside. Want that R2S Hybrid on this amazing core in my hands! Makes me wonder which cover will be on the next stateside code release. I'll be buying it.

There was a PDW a bunch of years ago and I think it was overseas.  I know I had one, I don't remember much about it though. 

This Signature line I think is going to be a big seller for them and will last a while.  It is a good way to market their staff.

If it was long enough ago, was that PDW ball an AMF product?

It was Storm....  http://123bowl.com/bowling-balls/overseas-balls/pdw/

Code Platinum?   I happened to find this by accident.... it's on the Storm web site under "Private Label" balls:

Looks like a Code Black with R2X coverstock...

The Code Black was the first of the Code series in 2013, there have been a total of 14.

Most recent on the approved list Code Platinum (3/16), Code Black Limited (11/16), and Code Perfect (1/17)

The majority of the Code series has used R2S pearl or R2X pearl. There is 1 with R3S pearl and 1 with R3S solid, 1 with R2S hybrid, and I think 2 with NRG solid

Well with the Sure Lock recently dropping. I still wonder if a hybrid Code is next to replace the og Lock.

Does Storm maintain a 45 day release schedule? Master line is down to two balls so I'm guessing it'll get something, then the next Code.

A hyrbid non polished would be nice!

Jason Belmonte has used the Hy-Road quite often in competition, so it made sense the Timeless is a stronger ball with hybrid coverstock on it.

Pete Weber has used many different balls in the last few years (Marvel S, Optimus, IQ balls, Alpha Crux, Wreck-em, etc.) Perhaps a PDW ball in the signature line will feature the RAD4 weight block as in the Code Black with a new and updated, or most recent version of, the Hybrid coverstock. I can't see another strong reactive solid coming out so soon after the release of the Sure Lock.

Maybe the PDW ball will be a totally new weight block paired with a Hybrid or R3S Pearl coverstock.

Being that they discontinued the lock (right?) It for sure will be coming in either a code, rules or Crux (hopefully not)

They will, I bet, try to keep a sanded pearl/hybrid around being they have so many HP lines.

I'll ask this here instead of creating a new topic since we're already talking about international market.

Is there anything illegal about using international balls here?  I'm in the navy and a few ports we sometimes hit are likely to have some kind of bowling center. I'm curious if I were to ever buy a ball out there on deployment and bring it home and get it drilled if it were to be legal for USBC here

As long as its on the approved ball list.

Code Red Limited on the approved list. Maybe we'll be getting the Code Red?? Storm made the Code Black Limited for overseas when they gave us the Code Black

That would be awesome. Really want to try this core in another cover.
