Hey, wake up!
« on: June 01, 2018, 08:26:19 AM »
What's going on in here? Did you all think I was gonna let this subforum die??

If you thought yes, then you're wrong!

Peeps, Bowl Expo is right around the corner. We know about the Global pieces. Now what do you want to see from AMF come late June?

I still have the Angle Evolution Tour! It vaguely resembles the Jackal Rising in hook shape. Lots of angularity for a high load particle and relatively clean through the heads as long as you have good oil coverage!

You know, just for this, I'm going to do an AMF video. I'm ordering a Sumo, and have a Green Mamba, Mamba Hybrid, Clutch Pearl, NightHawk Stealth, a plugged Ninja SE, and a Bull Whip SE (that I'm actually gifting to someone, so no holes for me in that one)

What should I put holes in, friends?

Alright Doom, you said you wouldn't let this die. SO, what going on with AMF? Come on spill it!

They may have something coming down the pipe, but as far as I know, Sumo SE is the only release we get so far.

Boo this man!! Just kidding Doom, looks like they are in no hurry at all. Would be nice to see somemore retro for sure..

Do you currently have a YouTube channel?

I'm sure I do because I have a Gmail account, but nothing posted... Ever. Gonna focus on getting a decent camera and doing it right because that's the kind of person I am. Maybe do layout and drilling videos too.

Alright, but they're not getting laid out the same! Even with the new weight rules, I don't think I could pull off a 3-3/4*20 on the SE. Maybe if they still have some.in the warehouse I could pull something off.

Itís sad that AMF never really released the Heist Pearl. Best ball I ever owned.  I cleaned up in league with that ball. The low RG core revved up really strong but the weaker cover meant smoothness on the back end. I always wonder what the equivalent cover stock would be today because this is before AMF/900G used numerical ratings.

I agree, that ball was definitely a hidden gem! I can't give you an equivelent on cover for what i currently in the line. I might suggest an After Dark Pearl. The core really revs up midlane and the weaker cover gives it a very similar shape of the Heist Pearl and just jump off the dry. I don't think you could go wrong with the comparison on these 2 balls.

You know Iíve been drooling over that ball but I suspect it overlaps with something else in my bag.

The unique thing about the Heist Pearl IMO was the low RG/high diff core (2.46/0.049) wrapped under that mild cover. I know uSBC studies showing the influence of surface prep on a ball, but that particular combination OOB was very unique. Certainly a much stronger core than the ADP. For a lower revs/speed bowler like myself it was money!
