I have a friend that has a real one, from the day.

It is very weak on today's lane conditions.

I think the original LT48 would be pretty weak on todays conditions as well.

This is like being reunited with an old friend and picking right back up where you left off.

Doesn't this have the fortera exile cover? I would hope it's pretty strong

How does this ball take to surface changes?
Will it roll well if I knock off the polish to create a dull pearl?

I haven't tried to knock the surface down on Goldy, but I have adjusted the Fortera Exile and it works best with 2000 grit. I'm sure once I get on some patterns, I'll do the same.

Interesting in many aspects.

As far as the original LT 48 (rubber)being weak on today's conditions, yes I am sure so.

As to the Reactive LT 48, I had it....no it was a beast!

As to this goldie ball!  Ah, after seeing Nick's video and the specs of the ball and its cover and his drilling I get it!  A hot strong pearl!

I have the LT 48 Vintage pin way up and it is big on the back but not enough flare for my taste!  But still Big!

This one intrigues me because with this pin under middle this goldy ball reminds me of an IQ tour Pearl that is drilled stronger.  Very smooth and hopefully cheaper with more drilling options. 

Looks like a winner!

Just like the LT, I will drill a couple of these and get the most out of them. Love everything about this ball... The cover, the nostalgia, the reaction shape.

Nick did you try the LT at 4000 abralon? I just resurfaced mine to that but haven't got to try it out yet.

I hit my pin up LT with 1000 and my pin down with a light 2000 by hand. Still super clean, easiest ball to read.

the vintage lt-48 is the best ball ive chucked in 2 years, did it 5" pin with 80 val and a small hole 2" down from PAP, 4000 spinner, it reads the midlane early and is ubber smooth and controlled on the backend while covering a bunch of boards, continues forever...super easy shot with known friction the ball will flat kill it ...would have loved to have seen the same core on the rhino for me personally but ill just drill out the addition flare from the increased diff, cant wait for this piece
