2-Piece bowling balls
« on: January 09, 2019, 04:03:11 AM »
Hello all! Been away from the game for a while now, but plan to start playing again soon in the near future. I know that I want to throw some Lane Masters stuff, basically because of the 2-piece construction.

Don't know if that's a big deal anymore, but I always wanted to throw their stuff. That being said, what other companies make 2-piece balls? I saw Brunswick's Quantum BIAS and got excited, but realized that it's the only ball from that line right now.

Many thanks in advance for any and all help.

I own several two piece balls and enjoy them mostly for they're higher rg values but the ball that seems to carry best for me would have to be my swerve. maybe it's just the best match for my game or the green filler inside. I'm leaning towards the ball matching up with my game. my second best performing ball is also not a 2 piece so I'm gonna have to say 2 piece no matta.
The harder I try the harder they fall

Hey all, many thanks for all of the replies and input! Whew, touched a few nerves huh? Listen, I've bowled on and off since was single digits. I've bowled with almost every brand except some of the newer stuff. To me, it boils down to what I want to bowl with...period. In my opinion, all of the companies out there make good and bad stuff. If I don't go with Lane Master's, it'll be Lane 1's stuff. (milorafferty would really have a field day with them!) Why? Because I've always wanted to throw their gear. No more, no less. Again, thanks for the replies, they are greatly appreciated!

I loved some of the Lane #1 stuff. The Pink Panther were fantastic ball as was the C2 balls. I still have a Blueberry C2 and a Bloody Panther that are undrilled.

But they also had some marketing BS times as well. Remember the Difference balls? Marketing crap, nothing more.

ALL companies make some good equipment. But honestly with the USBC restrictions none are c9ming out with any new break throughs as they would have you believe. It's all just marketing.

Understood, and in many ways, I kind of agree with you. Like I said, for me, it's about what I want to throw. It doesn't make a difference any more of who does what better. FYI, just found out that Lane 1 has closed its doors, so it looks like it'll be Lane Master's gear for me! :)

 While I do buy into the two piece thing a bit, I think that matching up and having the “right” ball in your hand is FAR more important.

 My first 300 came with a true two piece ball. My ONLY 800 ever came with a filler type ball, so either type ball can be the right ball at the right time.

Matchup > Construction.

Nothing makes me laugh harder than the staffers(and wanna be staffers) spewing the latest marketing propaganda from their chosen company.
A true "Pyromania" in the making (already made?) here. 
Brunswick EDGE Pearl (1st or 2nd)
Motiv Octane, Carbon (1st or 2nd)
Radical Cyclops Pearl (2nd or ?)(re-drilled from pin down to pin up)
HyRoad (2st or 3rd)
(balls are quite similar but work on the conditions that are presented @ my house)
