I don't know about anyone else but I have thrown more pins back out on to the deck with this ball. I would have made the 7-10 a bunch of times had the 7 actually been up. Also, I made the Big 4 at Nationals with this ball.  So not only does it look COOL it performs awesome to.  If you don't have one you should pick one of these clear baby's up.

Thank you,

By far the best looking spare ball around at this point.  Definitely has been a nice compliment, coming from a target zone and CA rio.  Ball looks amazing going down the lane and I find myself trying to throw at other pins because of how good it looks going down the lane.

Specs:  15lb bowling ball 3.5 top weight pin in

Drilling:  Made it so it has 5/8ths on side and 5/8ths on bottom

Review:  Only the best looking,best reacting,best hitting spare ball ever made!
Sadly on the really dry outers this ball out hooks my mercury and hits like a mack truck only use it when it is popcorn fart dry.  I have shot a 290 with this ball in league.They were really dry obviously but I am definately not affraid to pull this monster out when it dry to use it as a main ball.  Best looking spare ball out there get so many compliments on it like wow that is so cool.  I just say they have one in the proshop only downside to this ball isthe price t ag but that didnt stop me.  Go get chu one..

Boy do I love bowling, stone 8,stone 9, ringer 7,fly by 10,fast six got to love this game.  Short look at what most of my games look like with a few strikes peppered in between.  Isn't it wonderful.

I just recieved my Spare Tire from Utah today. I cant wait to see what others have loved so much with this ball.

Its almost hard to believe that a Plastic ball can cause so much attention. I remember when plastic balls were Black Beauty, Blue Dots and White Dots of old. Keep in mind im only 25 so these are the only ones that I grew up with.

Awww.....I'm real late with this review. Been wanting one of forever. Local shop had to special order one, and I didn't feel like waiting.
Saw one for sale.....used, on Ball Reviews. Guy let me have it for forty bucks!
Best forty bucks I've spent in awhile. Didn't even redrill it.

Not only have I not missed a ten-pin in quite awhile, but now I (the ball) look good doing it!

A young toddler thought it looked so cool, he tried to actually steal it off my rack during league play!

Signature look with signature performance. I can't wait till I see some toast so I can try it out as the #1 ball out the bag.
Duct tape is like 'The Force'. It has a light side and a dark side, but it still holds the universe together.

Some days you're the bug; some days you're the windshield.
Some days you're the bug....some days you're the windshield...that's bowling!

This is by far the best ball in my bag. It looks great and it attracts a lot of attention, especially if little kids are bowling near me. It's a spare ball, but it's so good that I can use it as a strike ball too, and on any lane condition. My average went from about 195 to over 210 since getting this ball. Making all my spares really helps...

I just got this for christmas,as a present.I throw storm balls,with a decent amount of hook,from the left I stand 10 with my right foot,then throw over 16 to about 8.I am averaging, 208 to 212 in 3 different leagues.I got this as a 10 pin ball and for other spares on the right corner.It works,great.I don't know abot it being a first ball.I used it in practice,tried going right up 10-12 hit the pocket,and kept leaving 10 pins.But it works for what I wanted it for.If you want a good 10 pin ball that gets a lot of looks,especially from the kids,this is your ball.
