AMF - What would you bring back?
« on: November 17, 2015, 10:20:04 AM »
Just curious...  If you could remake/bring back any AMF ball from years past, what would it be?  And why?

I think a Super Scamp wrapped in something close to the S60 on the Dark Matter would be awesome.

I don't know what id bring back, but I think they should update the Xcite series with a solid maybe a hybrid. Since 900global has their whole Boost line which was awesome, Id like to see different Xcites so I can stay within the AMF brand I love. AMF bowling centers not so much...lol.

Firehawk ... most versatile ball I've ever owned. Core was good in multiple balls but whatever combo they did with the Firehawk worked the best. Had multiple 800s on league conditions with that ball and also won a World Team Challenge sweeper with it. One of few balls I've had that crossed over between wall beater and good tournament ball. Could play straight with it, could curve it.

Angle Evolution Exxtra ... ball was strong on back but really predictable. Combination you don't see in a lot of balls on market.

If you're strictly looking for a name or series to bring back ... Ninja or Sumo

What was the difference between a Hawk and a Firehawk? Anyone remember?

Thanks. I assume the core dynamics were very close to the same, also.

Yeah, its the Super Scamp style weight block. My Fire Hawk was money on everything.

I was going to say a Michael Jordan Reactive but isn't that the same core as the Firehawk?

I was also a lover of the Angle Evolution Exxtra!  Why did I sell that?

I still think a new Clutch solid would be very sweet!  But I've said that on another post!

Regards,

PS I have a Track Spell which I think is equivalent to the Super Scamp.  It has been my go to flat heavy oil ball for about 10 years!  (no belly)....

LL,

You're correct about the Spell. Stronger cover, but same weight block. I'd buy 3 Clutches, along with 2 more Pearls. I have a NIB sitting here!

I had a Triumph TNT and I loved the way it rolled. The whole Triumph series looked like it was pretty good. The new 900 Global Dark Matter has the same shaped core as the Triumph balls but with a different density.

To all of you asking for so-and-so ball to be remade: If you loved this or that ball, then why did you stop using it?

I have loved the Shred-It since it came out. I am now on my 3rd Shred-it. This one being 15 pounds since I moved down in weight last year. I will never remove the Shred-It from my bag. I clean it up all the time and reaction has not wavered. It is my GO TO ball.

So, I would love to see the Shred-It remade just so I can stock pile a few.
Balls: Motiv Forza GT, Motiv Primal Rage Remix, Motiv Ascent Pearl and Motiv (On The Ball) spare ball.. All made in the USA.
