You have got to be kidding.
« on: June 12, 2003, 09:28:45 AM »
Just back from a seminar with Bowling Journal's Mike Riggans. Very informative and educational. If you can attend a drilling/ball seminar he holds do it!

But one thing that I saw, asked him about and recieved the same opinion from him on was that the new TIME ZONE looked very familiar. After a slight look into the situation we came up with the new TIME ZONE actually having the same core AND coverstock as the (I know I am going to get this wrong) Rebel ECX. This is par------atleast as far as my feelings go towards companies releasing balls that are essentially the same.

This is sickening. Not that it is a bad ball----but they have nothing new.

I have not seen anyone bowl well with any of the Fuze line. PBA national bowlers do, but those guys would bowl well with a marble.

I do great with my fuze detonator when the conditions are right.  I have seen plenty of other people be successful with the fuze as well.  Some balls work for some people, and don't for others.  Also, why would Brunswick stop using old cores and coverstocks, when they are successful?  I think their goal is to make money, not to make one person such as yourself happy by spending a massive amount of money to make some new stuff.

Speaking of which, don't the new Columbia Throttles have a strikingly similar core to a few balls Brunswick have made at long time ago . . .

Low end and lighter oil.

FOr that low volume shot I don't know if there was a better one than the dynamic groove.  Lots of length plus a big backend.  Think Columbia scout but better.  Big backend!  Lots of power way down lane.

What was missing was something like the beast or track magic.  Very low differential core.  But maybe a strong weighthole inside the pap on a scream/r.

Probably could produce at least a pearl pulse if not a pearl beast.

I asked on of the Bruns. guys at the Vegas Expo , about that Throttle core, and told him it looked like they stole it.

He said yeah, closely resembles the Igniter core which he said did not sell well, so he was glad they came out with a core like that.

Kinda funny he would say that but its true.
