They should re-release the fusion with different color scheme instead. Just picked up a used fusion when might have bought new instead.

It wasn't as well received as the solid and pearl were.

Never thrown the Ink, but have heard nothing but good about it.  I have had the original blue vibe and the blue from the new.  Also both great balls.  Let me add the After Dark solid to that list.  All 3 are great pieces for the money.   After Dark is unique in that it allows me to play the dirt like the vibes,  but has given me some carry from deep angles that I couldnt always get with the vibes.

I can't imagine a ball with only 30 games needing to be baked.

For what it's worth, I put my Phaze II with 50 games into a Detox and got nada. No real change in reaction either. Love that ball.

Different color same tech = higher price point
I noticed they jacked the iq tour up as well... It was down to $142 and it's up to $154 as well

Solids have had and still have the lower price point at $139 even.

The master line new releases are all at $155.

Oh, Iím only recently interested in surface preps. I do the other way around of what you do 😝.
Meaning : I bake my ball often to pull out oil & still apprehensive to alter the surface of relatively new balls and avoid to do it if unnecessary.
I do use wet abralon pads for my older balls though.

Do you think the additive fragrance Storm put in their balls may cause it?

Another guess : ball with higher grit will bleed less oil than lesser grit for the pores size are smaller?

Does oil need to really soak up Phaze II before it can sweat?

Thank you for your replies.
Itís just that Iím from France and need to have a look at DIY centers to find any scotch brites. We do have MIRKA abralons though.

I donít have a ball turner either. Used to watch some fellows on youtube wet sanding it..
Itís tricky to do manually.. The local proshop takes 10Ä to resurface.
Itís not pricey but when youíve got 10 dull bowls.. with those of my partnerís .. combined altogether..

Anyway.. itís very insightful. Thanks again guys.

Abralons work great too just prefer scotch brites cause cheaper and less blisters when hand sanding. As for resurfacing if anything my urethane tends to develop a track slower than my reactives so can probably resurface a bit less frequently.  Especially if hand sand frequently.  Good luck.

12615 - Hammer / Re: BW Pink - how good is this ball?

There are a lot of Black Widow Pinks being used in leagues and tournaments in the Phoenix area. Practically everyone I've seen rolling the BWP is doing so successfully and with personal high games and series to show for it. Strokers, tweeners, crankers, moderate speed and revs, higher speed and revs. Out of the box, the BWP just seems to match up well with typical conditions. The BWP seems to be one of those transcendent pieces that moves an entire market from time to time. Virtual Gravity, Black Widow Pearl, IQ Tour Pearl, Paradox, Mastermind, Conspiracy, Mission, etc. come to mind.
