Starting over
« on: July 31, 2022, 03:10:24 PM »
Start my first league in years shortly.  Need some new equipment, don't really know where to start.  Currently have an old Motive Tribal I can use until I can get back in the swing of things.  If any of you old timers recognize me, drop me a message.

First and foremost, welcome back.  I'm glad to hear you're doing a lot better after going through all of the health issues. 

All of the brands are making good equipment these days.  I would also add in a vote for the new Ocean Vibe.  The Vibe series of balls has been great for many years and it's certainly something I would consider. 

Within the Storm brands, the Roto Grip Hustle or Storm Hyped Hybrid gives you a lot of ball for the price, just like the Vibe. 

Motiv has rounded out their line pretty nicely as well and something like the Blue Coral Venom or Fatal Venom could also fit the bill.  Those are similar to the Tribal that you mentioned in a previous post.  In fact, I still keep a Tribal Fusion in the bag for lighter oil as it's a ball that still matches up to my game several years after I bought it.

There are a lot of good choices out there now.  It'll just depend on what you feel most comfortable with and reaction that you prefer to see.
