Mika Koivuniemi' s Smoking Inferno

I'm looking for a smoking inferno like Mika Koivuniemi's. If anyone knows were to find one that would be great.

That's the point of a ball staff, to talk up the equipment.  Shame the PBA doesn't get that.

Actually, Barnes was throwing TWO Different Big Shots. The one on the right lane had the ring about 1.5" above and 1" left of middle finger. The one he used on the left lane had the ring right in the center of the grip.

Cross843,

What Mo Pinel had stated before was the use of titanium dioxide which was used in the original White XS. The pigment tended to make the ball skid much longer than anticipated from what we were told. I use a lot of it as filler for other resin systems and would tend to believe that due to its ability to mask color seperation. Also depends on particle size.

i remember giving my Bone XS to my proshop for an exchange of services on a new ball back in 1997.

I got the better end of the deal, as its still sitting plugged in his shop to this day, $65+ drilling.

kind of an eerie reminder of my bowling past whenever I visit him.

Anyone have a pic of this one? I can wait till Wolf gets it up on YouTube, but I just wanted to see what it looked like.
