Retro Line - What's Next?
« on: March 07, 2008, 08:01:17 AM »
Avalanches have already been a smash hit, offering premium coverstocks at lower pricepoints. So the obvious question... whats next? What would YOU like to see made in the retro line?

Personally, I'd like to see a comback of the PowrSurge coverstock, found primarily on the Combat Zones and WRW MVP. Pair it up with a Monster Red/Black core and you have a winner.

Monster Bruiser, Monster Bruiser, Monster Bruiser!
Have not thrown the Avalanche solid yet, but I am looking at it. Is it similar at all?


Also liked my Monster Frenzy. Wouldn't mind seeing some N'Control around...

Also, I bought a hat, so, I'm pretty stoked about that.

Got your order, and thank you!

Nothing is up with my post... nothing fishy. Just kind of trying to push my own agenda here. I am a huge supporter of PowrSurge coverstock, I think it reads PBA patterns just as well as the Activator series.

Although it's only been gone a short time, I'm ready for a re-release of the Strike Zone.

I will second that.  The Tracer, IMHO, is one of the best balls EVER made
