  • Getting better with age :) up next is the PBA50
 The respect remake is not close to the org 1 like Ive been saying for a couple weeks now    ( told you so )     just another new older ball released that was a big hit and the 2nd run is not as good as the 1st :(     
If you want it, go after it and make it happen.  If you don't, you have no one to blame but yourself....or maybe your just not throwing the right equipment 900 Global:) looking forward to the PBA50  tour after april throwing 900 global again, the wait was well worth it!!!!

The real question becomes, is it still a good ball? From what I've seen, it still looks like a good release for 900G

 I think most of us have the understanding that even stashing extras of a ball has the possibility of it not being quite the same as the first one

I can't speak to this because I was the only person on the planet that didn't like his original Respect. I'm still putting holes in one, though!

Still super excited about the Claw. I'm calling it, you're gonna see some amazing stuff out of that ball.

After throwing the remake it seems very close to the original imo..  I get good length and strong back end much the same as I had with OG.  I only have about 6 games on remake now but I have no complaints.

I didn't like my original Respect OOB so I took it to 2000 and liked it a lot more. Used 1000 whenever I could though because it shaped enough in oil and rolled perfectly when bumping the dry.
Main Rotation: Verdict, Torrent, Mission, Teal Rhino
Up next: HC Fused, Match Up Black#2, Torrent#2, Respect#2, Eon

Yes despite what impending doom says, my respect rolled best tracked up with minimal polish!

Would the boost slot nicely under a hyroad for when the lanes break down?

Iím looking at getting my 9 year old the Christmas boost and he wants to bowl adult juniors with me in the summer so I thought itíd be cool to have a matching ball since we both like the look....

But if it doesnít slot nicely under the hyroad Iím not gonna spend the money to get it

Any layout suggestions?  Iím looking for length but not an aggressive backend snap

Well, S43 is going to give you length, so that's not a worry. Personally, I'd go 5*65 and break the surface to get it to not read the friction as hard. 3000 maybe? Your use case will vary.

100% agree with Doom. That's why he's the best!

alright Mr. Doom, you may be getting your wish.  A few things have to work in my favor but I kinda have my sights set on the claw.  I know I said i was leaning turmoil but my need is for a high end solid, and the turmoil is symmetrical.  i already have a bigger symmetrical piece in the dare devil trick.

So in doing some research, the Claw is actually the best priced assym solid out there.

Im really factoring in price in this purchase because i'm in the navy so i definitely aint rich, and it'd be for heavy oil sport shot conditions.  It'd never see the light of day in league unless i just flat out got bored of the after dark pearl but that doesn't seem to be happening.  So i'd love to not go over 200 on a ball that would be very condition specific for me.

So if these few things go the way i need them to, i may need some suggestions on layout, and i was kinda thinking i wanted to sand it down from 2000, but figured id ask you about that first.

On the Claw, I like 45*4.5*65 for oil. Adjust surface as needed.
