A little help from the Visionaries please...
« on: March 27, 2007, 07:42:36 AM »
I am looking into getting some Visionary equipment, where I am at no one has them and no one is using them.  About me, 18 to 19 MPH at the pindeck per Quibca, revs are over 400 for sure, I can take hand out and go up the boards but the bread butter is 22-12 for me.  For oil normally I get a heavy oil ball, Big Bully, Action Attack, Xxcell, drill it strong, take the cover to 1000 grit and use Finesse-it II on it to get a light polish.  About the balls in question, I was looking at the Frankie May and the Red AMB, what's the difference between the two with identical surface preps?  

Let me know what you think?

AKA,

The difference between the two is that with the same drilling and surface prep, the AMB is a touch longer with more backend whereas the FMG tends to be a little earlier with strong continuation.  For you, I would suggest the FM simply because with your ball speed, it gets started sooner and OOB is around 500 abralon.  If you do get some VBPs, you wont be disappointed.

I have a lot of tilt so the FMG starting a touch early would probably be the best.  I have had the 2 Charcoal Ex's, Midnight Scorcher and a Green Gargoyle.  I loved the Charcoal's, the Midnight Scorcher was way to much, I even spent half a day on a spinner putting a polich on it, and the Greenie was nice.

I was looking at doing the test staff, getting the Immortal Pearl, the FMG, the G-3, and the Blue green Centaur.  I thought flip drilling on the Immortal pearl, play to it's strength, drill the FMG 4 x 3 with polish, rico the G-3, and a weak drill with polish on the blue green.  Maybe pick up a Violet Gargoyle or an Ogre to fill in later on?


Thanks for the input
