Violet Gargoyle
« on: December 31, 1969, 06:00:00 PM »
The Violet Gargoyle is the newest in Visionary's line of highly successful Gargoyles. This Gargoyle utilizes a new solid reactive coverstock to start up sooner on the lane than the Green Pearl, yet maintain the highly aggressive snap on the backends. When the Green Pearl is going too long, pull this ball out of the bag and strike at will.

Hardness: 74-77
RG: Medium (2.56")
Flare: Medium (.039" differential)
Length (1-100): 67
Back end (1-100): 87
Hook (1-100): 59 (oil) - 84 (dry)
Avail. Wts: 13-16# (Gargoyle core)
10-12# (on request - light wt. core)
Lane Conditions: Medium

Volume: Medium

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS



Likes: Drilled this ball on the advice of my local Pro Shop Operator and Regional PRO. It is drilled 60 x 5 x 45.  Very strong roll, easy revs. On heavier oil I can play 15 to 10 and have a great move to the pocket. Down and in on the shot in our house ball is too much(hooking at 40 feet). I would recommend this older ball to anyone that can find one. It is a great ball. Visionary has Great equipment!!!!

Dislikes: none! The Ball does exactly what i had it drilled to do. Visionary keep up creating what you do! Great Equipment!

Length: Better for longer patterns


Volume: Best in Medium to Medium Heavy Oil

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): Have only used on a THS



Likes: The best thing about this ball is how hard it turns on dry boards.  I have been able to play deep inside or in the track area with this ball and still have the same hitting power, whether it starts it is coming from the 12 board or the 2 board.

Dislikes: I have noticed that sometimes will leave alot of 9 pins because the ball does not dissapate much energy at the breakpoint.
