Hammerheads -
Don't miss out on this one - they are very hard to find.

I was fortunate to find a used one about a year ago. I use it at a house that has very dry lanes and it's been perfect. I'd love to get a hold of a new one.

I have a single drill 16lb blue Nail Urethane in perfect condition if anyone wants to buy it.  I'd be surprised if it has more than 8 or 9 games on it...I just don't use 16lbs so it was never used...

Yes, that was a cheap plug, but oh well.

I probably have around 30 games on this ball. I used to always carry it with me in case the lanes were on the "drier" side. Over the last year or so, just about everywhere I've been has been using heavier volume oils that don't wear down as quickly. The closest I've come to needing a dry lane ball has been the original Danger Zone!! My how things have changed over time. Anyway, I did shoot 780 with this Pearl Nail about a 1-1/2 years ago. The Neoflex cover is one fine reactive, and the light bulb core makes it very predictable. I'm throwing exclusively Brunswick, and I have a Rhino Pro Teal (similar), so I just don't need this ball anymore.
OH - It is MUCH stronger than the urethane Nail. Remember - this has the same coverstock as the 3-D Offset Blazing Violet / Pearl and the pearl Spike. Both of those were AWESOME balls. I still have a N.I.B. 14# Spike tucked away for when I get REALLY old.

Your answer...

This one has a picture of the core and a description.  Sorry to burst your bubble but Faball used the word wafer where most companies used pancake.

ok will give you that, but the principle behind it is the same as a pancake with a flip block, they have just incorportated the heavier "flip block" in the full size core, it is still a three peice ball, and not a two peice standard pancake block

no... you don't get it, 3 piece is non-flaring basic nothingness. Only enough stuff so that you have something to drill into. 2 piece is what is normally referred to as flaring. Most balls were 3 piece even up into the late 80's/early 90's.
