The orange is the weight block in this ball. I sold one on Ebay last year for $225.00 shipped.  It was my understanding that there were about 1000 made and that only about 300 were first quality

Rumor is they are supposed to be re-releasing these things. Not sure when though. Picked one up last year for $115. I think I got lucky.....

yes sir that is the real thing. got one my self when the blems came out and every time i pull it out the bag people ask me what it is. and kids they love to see it rollin down the lanes.

as for the blems, these balls did not come out as clear as they had wanted. some orange specs where visible in the ball, making it look like it had things floating around. but it is my opinion that they are blems because this ball hooks. got mine close to 16 lbs with a like 1 inch pin, well i throws it straight by breaking my wrist but if i throw it regular, the ball becomes a med light oil ball.

it always fun to throw a strike with the ball and have people ask you if your using a spare ball. i tell them, well i gotta let the monster have some fun to.
