« on: May 13, 2006, 11:58:18 AM »
Can anyone elaborate on this:

Yes, there is enough oil and no, the ball is not rolling-out.
Is that your answer to everything in life?

Read my profile and you'll see why I can honestly say this.

I think they're just collectables. I've seen some in my local pro shop but never inquired about.

Thought maybe they could be duckpin balls.

Just a collectable, mini-balls have been sold by Brunswick at the ABC/USBC booth at Nationals for several years now.  Also, I think bowlingball.com carries some.

My teammate brought one back for me from Corpus Christi and it says Corpus Christi 2006 on it.  It's cute.  I have 5 of them now from previous national tournaments.  I just need a basement bar to display 'em.

Just collectibles, but I think the print quality is poor, seems to be the same as on normal size Viz-A-Balls... very grainy for the size. Saw an Elvis Mini, and it looked horrible. Lighter versions (It's a... baby balls) look better.

Funny thing is, that in my club house's pro shop an old Mini is on display: a 5" Fire Quantum ball. Looks like the "real" one, just smaller. Must be from the mid 90ies?

isnt that what happens when you leave the ball in the polish machine too long?
