Silver Streak Particle
« on: April 28, 2003, 10:30:53 PM »
From time to time certain pieces of equipment impress me. Guy came in and threw a few games with it and compared to a V2 particle he had also this ball was a ton. He said he picked it up to fit under the V2, wrong. This ball has a good amount of push through the fronts and comes with a hard rolling arc on the backend. The house had a real good amount of juice out there with most everyone throwing particle but this ball gave a different look. It has length of reactive or polished particle but controlled hook of duller particle yet a ton of continuation at the pins.
 Brian LeClair ( local PBA'er) won a recent Foundation games qualifer on a pretty tough condition after switching to this ball the second day and averaging about 250 for the whole day.

P.S.- Guy who brought it in and threw the few games sent it into our shop for trade on a milder ball.Too Funny

Roger nice job on this ball it is a sleeper as far as price but not performance.

Thanks Lefty.  I think the only thing that will ever hurt this ball is the time we released it.  But we have to fit them in some where.  Due to it being the end of leagues people aren't looking to PURCHASE a ton of equipment this time of year.  It will be a good ball in the line for a long time.

Thanks,

Let's break this down.  1.  You think its a good ball.  2.  The ball was MUCH stronger than anticipated/predicted.  

That sounds all too familiar and, actually, its dead on as to what I said in my post yet you get a thank you and all I get is someone making noise by driving around in his waambulance.

" 5. This post was in no way personal to me. I tried to drive a point home but I know that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink. "

Hey Peech, Your horse is dead, quit kicking it.  I think your post in this thread is out of line, it seems you are making it personal.  You made your point, you generated some good feed back, but it is time to drop it.  I appreciate Roger, and New guy answering posts, and don't see how your attitude towards Roger will encourage any other ball companies to post here.
 
Pchee is full of stuff, but the chicks really dig the Stringer's stuff.
Nuff said!

stringy,

Kinda funny how you follow me around from post to post and try to get me to stop.  Has it ever worked?  Yeah I didn't think so.  Keep following in my footsteps and pray that you can keep up.   You don't see a lot of things....its kinda hard with your eyes shut isn't it.  Here's a towel so go wipe that "stuff" off your face.

I did buy one of these Silver Streak Particle ball's. For once I have to agree with pchee2 on the reaction of the ball as stated on the web site. I am NOT slamming the company. I did not get the back end that I hoped to throwing normal speed for me. Slow it down and the ball had a big back-end. I shold not have to slow down that much. Of course pchee2 might slam me for throwing a 14# ball but, I have better control. Could it be the range needs to have a bigger range due to different ball speeds and conditions? I do believe that Roto-Grip is another great company and wish them the best of luck.

Read post and comprehend:

Ball was stronger than anticipated by the guy who bought it. Could this be because he gained greater length ignoring heads so it just read the backends. yes. What impressed me was the controlled arc and continuation through the pins. Pchee you read into something too much. And as long as we are moving around threads. Increased length causing ball to ignore heads will cause greater backend. Long pin drills tend to do that at times as core takes longer to face up to roll status by then a lot of the time you are reading the dryest part of the lane as far as oil volume. Hum? Strength of ball is not measured by amount of boards covered but by amount of oil it can handle. Sorry at least by me!! I do agree a lot of bowling companies tell you that balls are for a certain concentration yet when you buy them they tend to be stronger. That is up to the buyer to do their homework and figure out what is best match for what he or she wants. (ie. why we utilize ball reviews.com)You can decide to further the post by ripping into it further, my statement was intended to compliment the job RG did with this ball and how it gave a different look on the lanes than some other balls. Lots of this years balls impress me but tended to be higher price and are getting their just do in sales and writes ups. (X-Factor and Inferno) Just wanted people maybe to not overlook a ball that is just a mid-pricer that offers something a bit different in my eyes.

Leftyhi-trak you are right about the mid price balls people over look them, but also I think some pro shop owners always tries to talk the customers into buying the high end balls. it happened to me at my local pro shop, I wanted to get something different, and notice he had the sonicx in stock but keep telling me that is a mid price ball with low performance. I aslo asked him about the Top Fuel he could not tell me much about this ball but after e-mailing Roger and gather all my information I  purchased the sonicx and the top fuel this is by far the best equipment I own and really like. So to all those looking for new equipment don't let the word mid price scare you from buying the equipment. Mid price but high performance.
