BRINGING THE CUDA BACK!!!!
« on: August 24, 2022, 11:09:17 AM »
Apparently they were listening as quite a few were lobbying for the Cuda to make a return.  Here it is with the Powercor technology.  This may be a must have.

I normally don't buy new releases, but I may make an exception for this one. Haven't bought a new ball in a few years and need a solid.

If it's anything like the original, I'd pull the trigger and buy at least 1.  I loved throwing that ball back in the day.

Ordered mine as soon as I heard. Got my dad's used original back in 97 and enjoyed it. Then in 2000, I drilled the re-release Cuda 2000. To this day the most angular ball I've ever thrown. I have been one of those hoping against hope it would be one of the nostalgia releases.

On a side note.......Hey Ebonite, RED WOLF!!!!!

Ebonite is busy working on the series that never stopped outside the USA: The One. they are dropping The One Remix.

That said, I'd love to see the Optyx or the TPC series come back.. If they really wanted to, they could pull urethane back into their lineup and restart the Thunderbolt.

The One series should have stopped after the first. I loved Hopkinsville stuff, but all things being fair and honest, there were numerous sketchy releases after about the original Vortex, Apex, and Cat series. Heck, they've done 3 versions of the Puma which wasn't that great to begin with.

I've been hoping for Wolf series, Apex series ( at least the Reflex), Omega series. Granted most of those cores are no good based on current rules.

Columbia could have also gone with Piranha, Quake, or Boss series and would have made a lot of people happy.

Best ball I've ever owned was the Cuda C Pearl.  If that comes back I'll be a happy camper.

Piranha C and gold quake along with Cuda C were some of Columbia's best releases
