Scorchin X-blem $49 @ Bowling Ball. Com
« on: November 16, 2006, 04:42:55 AM »
I just received an e-mail for some specials @ Bowling Ball. Com. They have 15 pound x-out Scorchins for $69 minus $10 newsletter discount plus $10 Google checkout discount. Final price = $49.99 shipped.

I figured at this price it was worth taking a chance.

Sweet.  I just bought one as well...  Now comes the fun part... the waiting game to see what I actually get.  Hopefully its not something with an 11" pin and 5 oz top top weight.. LOL.  But for that price, its pretty hard to beat regardless...

X-Blem, X-Out, & Seconds:
Manufacturers release their high performance bowling balls under the X-Blem, X-Out or Second label when small non-performance issues occur. The core and coverstock combinations on these bowling balls are identical to the first line bowling balls.
 
A bowling ball is labeled an X-Blem, X-Out, or Second for any one of the following reasons:
Color pigmentation.

Small pitting caused by air bubbles.

Unique pin placement, top weight, or mass bias marking location.

Labels are engraved in unusual places or may have the wrong logos engraved on ball.

Swirl patterns of the ball are not consistent, which may effect the color (look) of the ball greatly.

Engravings such as the serial numbers, cg location markers or logos may be stamped on the ball more than once.
 
 
These differences do not effect the performance of the bowling ball or the ability to drill the bowling ball. Therefore allowing bowlers to purchase top of the line bowling equipment at a fraction of the cost.
 
NOTE: Due to the limited availability of X-Comps, X-Blems, X-Outs, and Seconds pin placement and top weight are not guaranteed.

Don't be surprised if the specs are horrible on these balls. Why else would they sell them for $49 shipped?

I hope I am wrong, but I see no reason why they would sell these balls for that low of a price, if the problem was just a color issue..

I know someone that ordered an infinite one second or blem from bowlingball.com and the ball was basically undrillable with the location of the pin cg and bomb.. I personally will never buy a blem or second again as I have had nothing but bad luck with these types of balls.. Good luck to all that bought the scorchin 2nd's and hope they all have usable specs..

As far as the user that bid on the ball and sent them an email. They will not let you out of the auction if you win it. Everything for them is automated because they sell so much on ebay. They will expect you to follow thru with the winning bid and if you don't pay they will also put you on their list of non-paying bidders and they will not allow you to bid on anymore of their auctions. I know this for a fact as I am not able to bid on any  of bowlingball.com ebay auctions because of an issue I had with them awhile back.
--------------------
One day when I grow up I hope to be able to throw the ball AND carry as good as g_thing!!
