I went through this last month. My Columbia Eruption Pro Blue was suddenly out of production, but I found 2 on close out before they completely disappeared. Highly Versatile lower differential solids are hard to come by. Iím set for a while.  :)

Already squirreled away a NIB Hy-Road.  Pretty good at finding discontinued stuff as that is now the majority of my balls so something these days getting discontinued isn't usually a big deal.

Choice. I can break down our ugly lanes with it and help eliminate over under, while still being that special ball I can move left throughout the night and still carry.

Gb3. Great ball to help me control the lanes and keep me out of trouble. I know what it is going to do from the time it leaves my hand.

Gb3 pearl. Can carry from inside while still being controllable. This ball just feels like magic on the lanes when I can throw it

Between these three balls, I feel like I can bowl on anything.

Honorable mention to the blue vibe, but I never see clean enough backends to be able to throw this, because life sucks.

Scandal S. Every time I find a NIB 15# Scandal or Scandal Pearl I buy it. The 3 have been very good to me on about anything I bowl on including Sport.

If can throw 15# or 16# still available from below.  Good merchant as have bought several balls from them.  Tend to have some closeout stuff later than anyone else.  I would be all over that Black Widow Legend also if I didn't already have one.  Picked up their last Track Heat remake as well last month.

(edit:  Has Scandal/S for $110 too)

Since Storm seems to change the chemical composition of the R2S coverstock monthly, what you have is not equivalent to the original Hy-Road. In fact, unless you bought your HR within about 3 months of when the original came onto the market, who knows what you have - literally.

Charlest, what you say is 100% correct. My new hyroad I drilled with same layout this year rolls nothing like my old one. Way to skid flippy. Old one was nice and smooth. I mean the newer one is not even close.  >:(

Hyroad, if itís not a 2008 or 2011 pour, Iím not interested.

Post by: BowlingForDonuts on April 14, 2019, 01:57:52 PM
Well I love the one I got drilled from 2017 or so.  Crazy to think if was even better.  My luck I wouldn't match up with the ones in the past.  Need a little more skid flip than most.  For the price risk pretty low.  Thought about doing same with the Venom Shock but decided to pick up a recoil instead.

Why do those two specific years stand out?

R2S is like the Red Hawaiian Punch. It used to be great years ago, now something about it just ain't quite right.
