My Arsenal:
Rogue Cell (5.5 x 4 OOB used)
Bounty(4.5 x 4.75 Fresh 1000 Abralon)

parklanes.co."jp" = Japan. Overseas for sure. There will probably be a new, stronger, C-System showing up within the next month, but this isn't it.

I bowl league with Johnny Petraglia and Parker Bohn, and they were both throwing it last week.  The Alpha-Max is unreal.  It has a great flip in the back, especially for a sanded solid ball.  I really look forward to seeing what this ball can do.

They also had a new pearl Revolver drilled up...this ball looks like it needed a lot of dry boards to work well, but on our somewhat heavy oil THS this new Revolver didn't work well.

The first Revolver was already a pearl...

Looks like it would require some oil.

Pretty sure this is going to be an American release also.

Both Johnny Petraglia and Parker Bohn III were testing this ball last week down at Howell lanes, here in NJ.

The original Revolver might have had pearl in it but there is a difference in densities of pearl additive. Some have more influence than others.

As someone who has had great success with the C-System line this is great news. It is hard to imagine that there COULD be an even better ball in this line coming !

It really seems like some people really love the C-System balls and others hate them. I see more resurfaced (traded in) C-System balls at my local pro-shop than any other ball. It could be because they simply sold more of them but I don't think so after reading the message forums. I wanted to buy a 3.5 some time ago and I got 50-50 results from people saying that they loved it and hated it. I ended up getting one anyway and I am really indiffernt about the ball. Some days it seems to be good and others the reaction on the ball is just funny. I can then switch to my Storm ball and it is consistant shot after shot. Maybe the 3.5 is just a bad match up for me, and would be great for another bowler?

I see too many bowlers not matching up to the lanes they are bowling on. The surface they have on their equipment is incorrect for the type of oil pattern they are bowling on. I also see many bowlers with lower than average ball speeds try and use highly aggressive equipment when they'd be better off using something weaker. Yes, the C-System 3.5 is a great ball. But it also has it's place. Just like a highly polished Slingshot has it's place.

Yeah I recently bought a ball spinner and have been playing with the surface's on my balls, it has really made a difference in my game.
