Help me remember an old ball please
« on: December 15, 2023, 09:28:12 AM »
Can anyone help me remember the name of the company/model of ball that used to have a different type/color of material that was used only in the track area? It was probably in the late 90's/early 2000's? IIRC, the end result looked like a 3"-5" wide ring around the ball in a different color.
I'm getting old and my memory isn't what it once was. Thanks in advance!
Dan

Wont happen because of production cost and effectiveness. Plus the issues with separation over time. It was a unique one of a kind thing that will not happen again.
