Its back and you never even saw it coming!

The Ninja SE is back with a vengeance, and ready to inflict damage on whatever stands in its way. The second introduction into the AMF Vintage line the Ninja SE is going to provide a stronger motion at the breakpoint with more continuation when compared to the Night Hawk SE. The Ninja SE F70 coverstock finished with the NEAT T 4,000 grit finish will handle higher volumes of oil than the Night Hawk SE. The Ninja SE fits into the AMF lineup between Night Hawk SE and Escape, by providing more entry angle, with more overall hook than the Night Hawk SE and less than the Escape.

Covestock: F70
Color: Purple Solid
Finish: NEAT "T" Pad 4000
Core Type: Symmetric
RG (15lbs) 2.48
RG Dif (15lbs) .054

AMF Ninja SE
#15.2
3" pin
3 oz top

Rt. hand
14-15 mph
PAP 4 9/16 1/4 over

Drilling: 5 x 4 x 3, pin up
Volume 38-41ft
THS, Kegel Challenge Series

The AMF Ninja is back as the Ninja SE!  For all you AMF Ninja RPM lovers this is a must drill. Layout on mine is 5 x 4 x 3, left right out of the box at 4000 or T pad.  Ball looks duller than it is.  This ball is a throw back - smooth, continuous hook.  Extremely predictable, keeps me in play and carries like a beast!  About 4 more boards than my Nighthawk SE overall.  Able to play track area in a house I normally am deep from game 1.  Just reads the lane throughout and gives me a super hard arc to the pocket.  I've had 3 straight small 700's with the ball.  Its predictability is quite impressive.  If you loved how the old AMF Ninja series rolled this ball will give you that and more. Great job 900 Global bringing back a ball and a look we all crave for on today's conditions!

COMMENTS
A blast from the past! Now with an updated cover (F70) and core design. You will get the same great reaction that you have come to know with the S70 cover from 900 Global. This time we see it on a symmetric on the AMF Vintage line. Overall, you will not find more bang for your buck in this ball. I find it and easy step down from either the Truth or Inception when you want to smooth out the lane. The Ninja SE provides great midlane traction and superior continuation through the pins. Best suited for medium to medium-heavy lanes.

Ninja SE
Coverstock F70

 Color Purple Soild
 Finish 4,000 Grit
 Differential 2.48 0.054
 Core Symmetrical

   The Ninja SE which features an aggressive core with a perfect  Solid cover to match, is its latest release.  The Ninja SE has a great look too with its nice purple color and a nice sharp ball motion.  I drilled my escape with a 4 X 4 X 4 layout which produces enough length to even out the angular ball motion you can have with this F70 cover.  The Ninja name is famous from the past but its new ball design is based for the future! (Maybe they can bring back the Gold Angle too.....I sure hope so)  The Ninja SE will not disappoint and it's a must ball to have in your arsenal!  IMHO it's the most versatile ball in the AMF 300 line.  So don't get left out in the cold by letting this one go by!

Yo! How in the hell did I miss this??

I did not know AMF came out with a vintage Ninja! I still have two of the OG Ninjas that I loved back in the day, sitting on my rack!

Imagine my surprise when I saw a used one for sale in the window of a pro shop! I jumped on it with both feet!

This ball is frigging amazing! I love it better than the old originals. It is everything that the ball details describes. Smooth, angular, and continuous!!

I have mine drilled 30 x 5.25 x 0 and it is a monster!! I can turn the corner on patterns where everyone else is searching for stronger options in their bags.

I LOVE this ball! Where was I in 2016 to have missed this?? Anyway its the best $15 "used" investment I ever made...LOL

Great ball AMF! AMF/Global is always known for having them sleepers!
Some days you're the bug....some days you're the windshield...that's bowling!
