amf burn
« on: April 15, 2014, 04:29:03 PM »
I am wondering if anyone has drilled one of these balls, am looking for something very mild when lanes break down really bad?

Well, it has F28, which is a weak resin shell, and a pancake weight block. If you use some extender polish, it may work. Not knowing your stats, I can't say for sure.

Never heard of the Burn. It's not on the AMF web site.
Please show some references.

I never heard of it either.  However, a search on bowlingball.com brings this up:
http://www.bowlingball.com/products/bowling-balls/AMF300/11250/Burn-Green-Black.html

On a sidenote, whoever paid $29 with free shipping for the Incinerate Pearl got one hell of a deal on eBay.

It does say 2 other things:
1. "Currently not available".
2. "3 piece Pancake core"

Those went fast. Last time I looked, they had them in stock (earlier in the week). I remember seeing these on the AMF website before they did the makeover. They also had a pretty extensive archive prior to that as well. Now they have only the equipment that has been discontinued after the new website went up.

A Desert Hook would be the next closest ball to a Burn.
