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.

i can feel everyone's heart slump into their stomachs as they see a 7" pin with enough top weight to make Kirstie Alley fall over.

I bought some wrist braces from them on an ebay auction that basically fell apart and I wanted a refund and they just banned me from bidding and never replied to any of my emails requesting a refund. Very poor customer service in my eyes. That whole thing was a couple of years ago so maybe things have improved, but since I can't bid on their auctions. I have no idea..

Can't hardly wait!!

Also Jim. I'll send Keith a note as well. If I can't bid on their stuff, so be it.

Shoot,

I was just about to order.  I will wait and see what others get as far as pin placement and top weight.

Whoever orders, make sure you give us an update when you receive the ball.

By the way, there are only TWO shipping options:

Next day - $85 (shipping to Hawaii)
2 Day - $52 (shipping to Hawaii)

I'm sure this ball probably made in China not Mexico. Good luck guys! Got to many bowling balls hard to resist but I'm skipping this time. Thanks for the sharing.

Well, I agree that x-outs are always a gamble. I have a few in my collection and they were all o.k. except one Storm Tfifecta that had the cg and mb on the axis within an inch of each other resulting in 3 3/4 onces of bottom weight. We angled an x-hole and got her down within legal limits and the ball is one heavy fricken roller....LOL

I'm hoping these Scorchins are useable even if the specs are "exotic".

As long as the ball ain't square, i'll be fine with it. Damn White Dot cost about the same. How can you go wrong?

Ordered a couple of smokin' white pins 2 weeks ago. didn't specify any specs due to a goof on the order page. rec'vd a 2.5t.w 3 1/4 pin and a 2.9t.w.
3 5/16 pin. the colors are off slightly on the second one and pretty much blotched on the first one. but not bad, might help picking up the roll,haven't drilled them yet

Warning.  My shop got one of these "2nd scorchin" balls from a customer with the pin way up in the B logo.  When we weighed out the real c.g. the ball had a 6 1/2" pin.  So much for Brunswick not producing 2nds huh?  It had 4.75oz topweight too.  The best we could do was lay the C.G. dead in the palm and put the pin high up 1" from his VAL and it ended up being a 4 3/4" pin to PAP placement, but almost 5" above the midline.  The customer seems to like the reaction though so I guess that's all that matters huh?

Haha..Inverted.. normally it seems that when you don't want to purcahse something on ebay (or change your mind), you are a dead lock to win the auction, regardless of time remaining...  I take it that the winning bidder wasn't on their mailing list...

These Scorchin bowling balls only have a slight color issue. We have 2-3 and 3-4 inch pins. No long pins and no top weights that are not within range. Plus you may request your pin and top when checking out.

Order from our website and simply pay by Google Checkout and Google will take $10 off of EVERY placed over $30. Just click on the link at the check out page. No limit to the number of orders. Our codes work only on non newsletter items. Still a great buy.

All Brunswick Seconds have:
Same core
Same coverstock
Same reaction
Same WARRANTY

And yes they are USBC approved.
