Just curious to the Visionary pieces people swear by perhaps even to this very day?  My top three are Warlock XV, Immortal Pearl and The Crow/Ogre Urethane (tie).  When I punch up my Centaurs list may change though.  Was also curious what people thought of the New and Mixed Breed cross overs (Z spin controversy aside).

BowlingForDonuts you might be right about the Centaurs in 2030 lol. I didn't even mention my Ogre SS pearls or Immortal Pearls which I also love.

BTW, had my 2nd Bronze Centaur drilled last week (no balance hole this time) and used it in a senior's tournament on the 4th of July. At times it looked and sounded like I was tearing the back wall out and my ball speed is usually only 14-15mph. Yeah, I'm also stashing but have not seen any nib SS pearls lately and going to have to quickly order a 3rd Bronze Pearl to stash.

Yeah Visionary pearls are really worth stocking up on though did see a 15lb BLEM Violet Gargoyle go for $170 on ebay so imagine that is a good piece as well.  Didn't realize the B/G Centaur was an asym until went and got drilled today (Visionary doesn't give int diff from what I have seen).  Asym yet with only .015 diff is definitely not your average ball so can't wait to try out.

Tough call for many reasons!!  Personally, I've always loved bowling better than people throwing a nice pink ball....hence the Violet Gargoyle stands out for that.  But really, for what the ball did taking into consideration the price....hands down for me the Ogre Pearl.  One of the most versatile balls I've ever thrown.  Also helps that it was my first 300 game shot.

Close second is the Gladiator Pearl.  I still throw that in leagues and I don't think I've cleaned it in maybe 5 years now.

Agree with G, very tough call! Have had so many VBP over the years, but if I had to rank my top 3 it would be as follows-

1. Crimson Executioner.
2. Raven
3. Gladiator
