you may find it somewhat easier to find a brunswick mvp parker bohn III----this ball is a remake of the great sapphire zone. good luck !

TenPinTony, if you need corroboration, Greg is correct.

the sapphire blue zone and the parker bohn III mvp shared the same weightblock design and powrkoil 17 reactive coverstock---it must be psychological.

Tony, Why Brunswick doesn't re-issue this ball is a mystery to me and others I know who loved the Sapphire Zone. It was better than the Danger Zone and always my first ball on a variety of conditions. The PBIII although said to be the same ball was not. Maybe it was psychological but I would like to have the real deal. Too bad.  Gino


In addition to what Greg Hoppe says,
Try a Red/Black Monster. There's an awful of the Sapphire and the Parker Bohn MVP in that ball. I have a 1:30 type od drilling, 4x5 on it, and I have a high gloss Black Magic shine on it and it still rolls early and strong, especially for a pearl.
