Asian market elite balls
« on: May 14, 2021, 07:53:32 PM »
Has anyone tried any of the newer Alien Flex/Steel flex balls?
There's a new limited edition alien being released in june 2021 but the core looks similar to the alien flex

Thats the same core used in a bunch of Pyramid balls also. Just a reused core. Don't know how they roll, but im sure its decent.

A family member had a Pyramid Chosen Path.  It used the same core as the Alien Flex.

It was very rolly with an arcing motion.  Carry was typical for a rolly reactive, nothing extraordinary.  On the right condition it was a beast.  On the wrong condition, well...not so much.  It eventually was migrated out of their bag and ultimately ended up at the dump.

Thanks for the input.
I'll see if i can pick one up for testing. No clue where i can get one though.
I like the old elite balls but it'd be interesting to see if these ones are as good as the old ones.

Supposedly a "new" limited ball is coming in june https://www.bowlersparadise.com/collections/bowling-balls/products/elite-alien-limited-edition-bowling-ball?variant=39274994794594
