Well, despite all the companies that failed, we do have Motiv as the only one totally outside of what would we a Storm and Brunswick monopoly. So it was possible to make it as a new bowling company, if not incredibly difficult.

Don't know the story very well.  Did Motiv grab resources (people, machines, suppliers, etc) from Brunswick after their plant closed?  If so then not real outside either.
Here today.  Gone tomorrow.

In all honesty, I will probably give them a try. I have bought balls from most of the new companies coming to market, especially the ones poured in the U.S.

But I still don't see long term success for them with where bowling seems to be heading currently.

No, Motiv was already in the business in a major way on their own. They poured a lot of the Brunswick cores before Brunswick moved to Mexico. Motiv is also the company called Tech-Line and your pro shop probably has a lot of their products in use that aren't bowling balls. There was an established distribution network, good reputation and income stream when Motiv started pouring their own balls. And in addition, they had a new idea with the NeoMark labeling.

I heard they couldnt keep some of their prototypes on the right side of the head pin the first time they tested them.  Balls are being poured in Spokane.  Small facility,  definitely not set up for mass production

That is interesting and unexpected.

Well it may be true that they may or may not have had issues with prototypes but, that is why they call them prototypes. I have heard with great confidence that the idea is very solid(no pun intended.) As far as the facility. It doesnt have to be huge to make great bowling balls. From what I understand these will be high end balls and as long as people give them a shot then they will be just fine however if everybody is going to pretty much say they are done before they even get going then that is unfortunate. I for one am excited to have a new option to test out. Just remember these are real people working very hard to get us some new great stuff. less then 20 days till nationals. cant wait

Seems like you are surviving okay while waiting. It's been like three weeks since you started saying that.

Last thing I would do is go to the USBC Open with unproven equipment.

I hope they make it big time.   I have always liked Victor, and maybe he has some cutting edge technology.  I only mentioned what I heard about the prototypes, and agree that is what they are for

Is it just me or you sound like you are a part of Big Bowling? All your posts about it seems to be kind of partial to them... Looks like you are on their payroll lol  ;D

No, but I do have skin in the game so to speak. Its their story to tell so I wont say who they are but I am not on the payroll or monetarily invested. I have known a couple of those involved for years and am family of one of them. Bottom line is what they are doing up there is going to be a tough road but I have broke bread with them and I can tell you they are all in on this. They believe in not only the product but also the future products. All they need is a shot and I am sure  they will make it.

Isn’t this eerily similar sounding to the old company CHAMPION BOWLING?

 Quality products, backed by big names and industry “insiders”.

 They didn’t make it long either.
And Champions had some really good equipment, and yes, marketing as well.
