Informal Visionary ball reviews and notes
« on: November 21, 2018, 01:24:46 PM »
Now that Visionary is no more (semi official I guess) I wanted to make a thread where people can post about their experiences with different Visionary pieces without having to go do a formal review.  Really have fallen in love with their stuff and sad to see them go but their stuff lasts forever and will be viable for many years to come so don't mind turning new people to Visionary or talking with old Visionary die hards.  Been trying to keep my post count down with this account but its been pretty dead on here lately and now I have a bit of a Visionary arsenal don't mind talking about what I see from their balls on modern lanes with modern oil (only corporate synthetics in my area for most part).

Finally got around to punching up the NIB Gladiator SE Pearl I picked up for the dry house I am bowling in.  Decided to go with a nearly 6" pin to pap, pin up drilling.  All I can say is wow is this ball mild for a reactive and perfect for short oil and burn.  I bowled like hammered dog shit today (mental game not there) but ball was trying its darnest to help me.  Unlike my Avalanche Pearl this ball has no surprises on the back end.  Overall its even a little weaker than my Purple Hammer but much later and a bit more off the spot (though not a whole lot to be honest).  I think it might even be weaker than my Scout but I drilled it with maximum side weight (also 16 vs 15) so not apples to apples.  Great ball to use when can't use many other reactives.  A true dry lane control ball reactive.
