Black Widow Pink
« on: March 05, 2019, 12:09:15 PM »

Man, I really need to stop trolling those international shops and channels.

This looks nice, and has the continuation I was looking for that seemed to be lacking along with having that squirlyness/over-under in the BWG and not as long as the Platinum. I really hope it makes it stateside, but I seriously doubt it.

If it did, the only question I would have would be why I would get it instead of the Peppermint or Onyx Vibe, let alone a Statement Pearl. Those are the only places I would see overlap, leaving the only reason to get it being "Black Widow" and Gas Mask core.

Thoughts?

I would like to know how it compares to my BW Gold? Same cover, new color? New stronger cover? New cover weaker???


Black Widow Pink uses Aggression CFI Pearl (same cover as Statement Pearl)

Black Widow B/G uses Aggression Hybrid

From what I'm reading, and yes, it's from Japan, so it may have some changes should it make it here, it's going to come close to the Statement Pearl.

Cover: Aggression Pearl CFI (same as on the Statement Pearl)
Core: Gas Mask (duh! I think they learned not to go the BW Nasty route again)
Finish: 2000 Abralon Polished

Mostly everything else is what you'd expect. Compare that to the specs of the BW Gold, which was using the Semtex Pearl cover (Scandal Pearl), and there should be the differences.

I think it's going to come down to shape on this; the performance you know you get from a BW compared to how the Statement Pearl rolls.

I included the video for the BW Pink in the OP; here's a video of the same guy throwing the Statement Pearl. Same layout on both balls.


If anything, this should be the apples to apples comparison we're looking for.

They're making this ball look crazy stoopid now.

Bill O'Neill just strung 21 in a row with this ball on the Scorpion pattern.

I saw Bill O’Neill and Kyle Sherman throw this ball on FloBowling. I believe O’Neill shot 300 with it as well!
