New Vintage ball PLEASE
« on: May 09, 2019, 01:35:10 PM »
With the redo of the Vapor Zone, which I find to be one of the best balls in my arsenal (comprised of 90% Storm/Roto) - any chance we could see the new vintage Inferno core wrapped in the new Vapor Zone cover?

Vintage Absolute Inferno --- I'M A BUYER ... NOW.

My vote is for Sapphire Zone Pearl, but that is far too much of a niche piece to ever make the list.
Anything but that!  ;D

Hated mine. Just seemed to skid, flip, look all pretty, then hit like a marshmallow. Probably my fault for just saying "I want this, drill it leverage" not even knowing what that meant or if the ball was right for the lanes.    :P

Dammit the teased the Helix before they said it was the vapor zone..... re-release the helix!!!!!!!!!

I thought I heard they couldn't make the helix the same way with the USBC manufacturing rules today.  It would be more like some Shadow Ops urethane/reactive hybrid more than likely instead.

ive heard stuff like that too... but nothing official.  and i'm pretty sure you can still use the helix so.... maybe its grandfathered in... who knows

Yeah its definitely grandfathered in which is why you see people paying $250 for a single drill old one (double helix often even more).  But think they changed it so they can't put balls together frankenstein style like the Helixes any more.
Less is more especially with forum posts.

Cool keep me posted lol.  Would be neat to see them again even if my track is so low to not be able to make much use of it regardless.  Unique balls for sure.  Then again also heard Brunswick financially took a bit of bath on them the first time so who knows.

They can remake the Black Gold Helix as a Viz-A-Ball and it would sell a ton.

Helix Spare or whatever you wanna call it.

The subject of the Helix remakes came up here and other places a long time ago and you are correct USBC would not allow a new one.

I'd doubt that. The Twisted Fury series wasnt real well liked. I liked my Twisted Fury and I think I'd actually get more use out of one now. It was definitely on the weaker side

Last I heard and I thought it was also posted on here was production cost to do the Helix would be $175ish a ball. That was 5 plus years ago.
