Anybody ever throw the EMB XF?
« on: July 06, 2003, 08:50:08 AM »
I remember when this ball came out, but never really heard much about it, nor have I seen many people throw it.  Thought it was odd that it didn't have the original EMB weight block that was in the first two.  I thought maybe Track might have been better off putting a solid or pearl reactive cover on the original EMB weight block if they wanted a third ball to fill out that line.  Anyway, just wondering if anyone had any luck with this ball.

I throw one and it's easily one of the best balls I've ever thrown.  Very predictable and forgiving, smooth through the heads and good pop on the backend.  I usually use it if the lanes are changing and I get a good read, no matter the condition.  Like the guy said before, if you can pick one up, do it, as it's a very good ball.

NIB EMB's (all types) are going cheap here in ozzieland, if i can get some junk out the door i might have to snap one up myself.
