Honey Badger Teal
« on: February 05, 2020, 08:48:14 PM »
Got this ball for Christmas, my wife let our 3 year old pick it out from buddies clearance section. She chose it because it has a "Puppy Paw" on it  ;D

Drilled it up 5.25 inch pin to pap, which puts the pin above and to the right a touch of my ring finger.

I am a slightly rev dominant tweener who went back to thumb in after dabbling in no thumb on and off the passed few years.

This ball has been absolutly incredible. Gives me room both inside and out and I can keep it in play nearly all day. Finished 5th in a tournament and it had paid for itself and then some. Few weeks later me and the guys were in a 3 man baker Sweeper and took first place. Kicks out more 10 pins and trip 4s for me than anything I've ever thrown.

Everyone is going gaga over the Phaze 3, but I'm glad that they don't know what they are missing in the Honey Badger.

The only thing left to decide is which one to get next.

Buddies also has the White hot and Infused on great prices as well. How strong is the Tour?

Kinda upset I won one on eBay right before they dropped the price on the Infused. Nevertheless, really excited to throw it. Kinda wish they stil had the HB Teal. Might grab a White Hot soon.
League: Match Up Black(MUBP) up, MUBP down, Scream
Testing: Badger Infused,
Interests: Beast, Messenger, Afterburner
Note: I have a fully plugged Saber and Choice for sale if anyone is interested.

Money Badger Tour is earlier and has less back end but is not a  skid flip reaction, it has great continuation and carry. The White hot is a skid flip piece but for me it is not as violent a backend as Teal. Of course it depends on your style how much a difference there will be.

Squirreled away a Teal but grabbed it like a dummy when it was $150 because first shipment went so fast and then watched it sit there at Buddies for months dropping eventually down to like $100 IIRC.  Oh well HB and TB both great balls to have along with a Black Ops grabbed as well.
Here today.  Gone tomorrow.

900 Global's 2-piece balls hit harder than most every other ball I've ever thrown. The Flux and HB Teal carry EVERYTHING, especially when they're clean off my thumb.

I'd say if you dig the HB Teal, check out the Flux. For me, they are the ultimate 1-2 punch.

Have a Gravity Evolve sitting at home to be drilled, but maybe I'll sell it and get a Flux.
