EXECUTIONER
« on: December 31, 1969, 06:00:00 PM »
Visionary Bowling Products, LLC. announces the introduction of the
EXECUTIONER. The ball is available immediately and cleared for PBA regional
competition beginning January 12 and national competition January 15. This
new ball is equipped with a tweaked version of the Green Pearl Gargoyle
cover stock, but encasing a totally new - low RG core. When the oil is a
little too long for the Green Gargoyle, the Executioner will rev easier and
recover sooner than the Green Gargoyle due to the low RG and medium
differential. Color: Red Pearl; Hardness: 75-78; Low RG = 2.49" RG
Differential = 0.045"

This is a hard hitting ball.  It has good lengh and awesome backend.  The covestock is reactive and can be altered to whatever you need.  On mediun to dry oil you can hook or swing it.  On a more oily lane you can throw it straight up the boards.  Good for anyones arsenal, can combat all kinds of lanes with the right adjustments.

I am very pleased to announce, THIS IS THE FIRST BALL I HAVE LIKED FROM VISIONARY!! I got this ball awhile back with a Midnight Scorcher and the specs are the same( Look at Scorcher review). One of the best rolling balls on the market. The ball revs up at the last second and cruches the pins like they were paper. When I was in my second year of bowling I averaged 166 with this ball! Very good on dry to medium lanes. Oil will take this ball down alot. If you are looking for a ball that rolls nice right off your hand...LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THE CRIMSON EXECUTIONER!!

I got one of these recently in a 14lbs. 3 inch pin 2.5 ounces
of top weight.

After using this ball for a couple of weeks I have to say I was really
impressed with the physical beauty of this ball. Though it not really a
big hook ball it has mucho power and pocket hits carry quite well.

In my hand this is definately no hook in a box ball at all. It has a slow arc to the pocket at the very end. I have been using it on medium oil in practice since I got it, I'd say i used on THS. In my experience it was basically a straight up the 3rd arrow kind of ball with a slight turn at the end. I don't throw swing shots so I am not sure if it is capable of that but in someone elses hand it might work.

This ball reminds me of using a urethane ball with little turn and great hit and carry. Not sure yet if I will try this in a league condition or not I need to use it more and get comfortable with the way it has to be thrown to strike.

Still a great ball, probably turns more in a drier lane and I think it would help defeat carry down conditions because it turns so little for me.

this is one of the strongest balls i have ever put in my hand (for starts)

Layout 5" pin from axis in middle of fingers for me cg kicked out 25 degree

PIN - cg 3"

Top Weight 3.5

house shot 36' ball rolls clean through heads and skates right and then at once left it goes and smash pocket the good thing about this ball is when you get a little carry down this ball is versatile you can move right and still get it to work the way it should

Well,
I had one of these drilled by Frankie May at the ABC Nationals and all I can say is WOW! This is by far the most powerful pearl ball I have ever had in my hand. It is drilled stacked with the pin and CG 1" right and this ball goes down the lane and turns hard for the pocket! I was averaging 197 at a house with a rough inconsistent shot and the last three weeks with this ball I have shot 685, 717 and 661 series. What a ball!

I also got this ball from Frankie May at the ABC Nationals in Reno, NV.  I got it with a stack drilling to complement my Charcoal Executioner.  This is a very strong reactive ball (especially for a pearl!)  I didnt score well at nationals, but that was due to bowler error (LOL).  When I did throw the ball well, I couldn't believe the reaction I was getting, it was fabulous!  I can't wait to use this ball on the fresh house shot this fall.  Will post further results in a future post.

Take care and good bowling,

i got this ball about 5 months ago, and its great, it came at 13#, pin was 2", and top weight is 2.05, i threw it on a typical house shot, with 38 ft of oil, and it made a strong, but predictable arc to the pocket, and ive scored my highest game witht his ball, although i dont use it anymore because i upgraded to 14# balls, but it is a great ball, especially for a pearl.

Bought this ball used off eBay CHEAP, and I couldn't be more pleased. For the first time in my life, I found a used ball whose previous owner had almost my exact same short span and mammoth thumb! Fit like it was drilled for me!

This is a great ball. It slides down the lane, stores up energy, and then "sets up" about 8 feet out and crushes the pocket. I'm averaging about 220 with this baby. Great for medium conditions.

If you can still find one BUY IT!

Great ball. I use it when nothing else seems to be working. It has never not once failed to deliver.It is drilled stacked and I can use it on dry lanes as well as semi oily. Very careful with this ball as I do not want to over work it.They are hard to get and very costly when you can.Ball hits hard and stays on the line, has great color and looks good going down the lane. It does leave corner pins if you get the angle wrong as it enters the pocket. I bowl in three houses and this ball delivers the high flush better then any thing I throw.Go get one if you can find it.

I got this ball when I was a staff member for Visionary. This ball worked great on medium to dry conditions. I had my second highest score with this beauty! This ball had a nice arc into the pocket and hit hard. The ball seemed to store energy as it rolled to its target. I used this ball when the lanes were getting burnt. I could always rely on this powerful ball until I sold it to my brother! I will try to find another and try more Visionary products.
