Where was this? Storm or USBC website?

It's still on Storms website

USBC still has it listed as approved.

Perhaps it has only been stripped of approval for left-handers?

Oh I know it is. When I was told that’s where I went first (USBC approved list) and then Storms site.

I kinda hope it is. I will trade mine in for a Hy-Road or IQ Tour.

At this point I don’t know what the issue is. Maybe some were poured with the wrong cover? Some with the wrong core? I’m completely guessing at this point what it could be.

Ace Mitchell has pulled the ball from its website.

I still don’t know the issue behind it though

BowlerX is now showing it out of stock in all weights too

I'm really curious now

Supposedly the story is the ball is not spinning the same numbers now as when it was tested and approved by the USBC. It’s symmetrical so this is not a mass bias issue.

The RG is 254/255 for 15#/14# - so for there to be an illegal issue that’s a huge jump to below 246

The diff is 050/051 for 15#/14# so once again that’s a huge jump to get above 060 to make it illegal

Maybe it’s not illegal - maybe it’s just spinning substantially differently?

I'm not trying to be a dick, but did you heard this from some idiot in league?
