What are your duplicate pieces?
« on: March 06, 2018, 09:43:50 PM »
Finally broke down and bought me a second Hy-Road which I haven't decided if I am going to drill different than my current one (which with a balance hole may need plugging anyway eventually) or keep NIB to someday replace it.  Its the first ball so awesome (GOAT for THS is the truth) I had to re-buy it of the 30 or so I have bought so far.  Just curious what balls other people have re-bought and also if anyone has multiple different drillings of Hy-Roads and whether glad they did it?

I have never liked 2 of the same ball. I always end up loving one reaction and hating the other. Tried it many times and just can never keep 2 of the same in the bag

Boy oh boy! Good topic:

I have 2 AMF Ninjas
I have 3 Roto Grip Saturns
I have 2 MoRich Ravages
I have 3 Roto Grip Ultra Sonics
I have 2 Roto Grip Sonic X's
I have 2 Brunswick Infernos
I have 2 Brunswick LT-48's
I have 2 Brunswick Shockzones
I have 2 Storm VG's and I have a couple dupes in the Track line as well.

When I really match up with a piece, I immediately duplicate it if possible. I drill one pin-up and one pin down. If I have three of the same ball the third drilling is Rico. I too have learned through much experimentation, that the idea of pin location NOT mattering is bullshit.

I honestly think how much pin location matters is somewhat style dependent as well as skill dependent.  If you are really consistent then fine tuning ball motion and carry is important.  If you are spraying the ball all over the place you can drill the thing for a full roller and it will hardly matter.  I am fairly consistent but for my style I have found layouts to not matter as much as it does for others.  Never did a 1" pin 2 pap on a reactive so with-in reason.

I've got 2 Super Beast Ti's, 2 Track Sensors, 2 Fire Quantums and 2 Roto Grip Saturns. For me, some of the titanium and ceramicore balls are just impossible to replicate with today's balls as far as hitting power.

I have
2- 900 Global Black Eagles, one drilled and one NIB
2- Motiv Venom Shocks, one pin up and one pin down
2- Motiv Forza GT's, one drilled and one NIB
Also had 2 Motiv Chronic Paranoia's, but both completely cracked.  Really liked the ball, but could not muster the courage to buy a third one. (Note: only Motiv ball that ever cracked on me.)

I am with you on that! I had a Cuda-C that I absolutely LOVED! Nothing hit like that ball ever!!
