Introducing.........The Backdraft (and possibly Zenith)
« on: January 24, 2005, 11:30:12 AM »
How many of you would like to try out a fire quantum core, wrapped in the original activator cover?  WOuldn't that be sweet?  Bob7 and i think so, and we need 998 other orders to make it happen.  Brunswick will remake any core with any cover for an order of 1000.  We think this would be an awesome ball to try, but we have to place an order of 1000 balls, so it's obvious we'll need help.  Ask people you bowl with if they'd be interested, i think this could be the best ball ever.

We were thinking of calling it the Backdraft.

EDIT:  Bobmatt and i have come up with a second ball to compliment it, the Zenith.  It will have the core of an ultimate inferno, but a solid pk18 coverstock.  Specs right now are:

Backdraft
Fire quantum core- low rg, .032 differential (low)
Original activator pearl coverstock
Black, with bright green pearl

Zenith
Ultimate inferno core- 2.513 RG, .05 differential
Solid Powerkoil 18 coverstock
Black and old hammer pink seems to be the choice

WE will make the backdraft first and if it works out, we'll make the zenith.

I will take couple of them if we can come up with a good name and color combo.

Black and royal or black and navy blue pearl will be good for me.  Hot pink pearl is also a good choice.

I like the idea of the ball, but I personally feel there aren't enough green balls.  Maybe its just me, but my bag has an overabundance of red and its many derivatives.  Black works, but green is nice.

Wow how could I have missed that yes a bright green pearl would be awesome.  I will buy a case of them.  Green is my fav color and your right aren't enough green balls.  The green in the Xception is awesome looking.

Green and black is good always liked the monster that was green/black.  All green is way better though.

Scratch that yes they all have the same basic core shape but I think it has been tweaked in each ball.

And don't the Ultimate and Original have the same core? So the only difference between the Backdraft and Zenith would be the coverstock. I believe the Absolute also has the same core.

Backdraft is using the Fire quantum core with normal activator pearl.  Zenith would be inferno core with solid pk18.

We are making the backdraft first.  If this whole thing works, we'll make the zenith.  I updated the main post so you can see.

Ah yes now I see, how about solid orange for the pk18 ball or solid pink.  Or royal blue and white kinda like the nemesis only diff colors.

I like that.  Royal blue and white, and then black and green.  These balls would definitely stick out.

WEll if that's true, even if they didn't make it for us, they'd notice the demand and put them in production anyways.
