Visionary Arsenals! Post up what ya got
« on: March 09, 2017, 09:31:27 AM »
Trying to get some traffic back to the VBP forum. If you have some Visionary stuff, post up what ya got, pics, etc.

I know I am drooling over some of the gems some of you have NIB...

Attached are pics of my VBP stuff...VBP is all I use. The rack is my spare stuff and the other pic is what I take to league with me.

Waiting on a new Crow to arrive. I went from using grips to no grips late last year and just had not replaced it yet.

A hard urethane ball was the Glowing Amulet.  Also very difficult to find.  I don't think I have seen one on ebay.  Visionary did not make it for very long due to pouring difficulties, I believe.

https://www.visionarybowling.com/ball/amulet-glowing

For reference: the Amulet was a semi-clear plastic with a real core (warlock?) while the Glowing Amulet was urethane.

I absolutely love my two Ravens. I have different layouts and surfaces on them to cover pretty much all house conditions apart from extreme dry or extreme oil. These balls only leave my bag when I get bored and want to throw some of my problem children.  ;)

It's really tough to find a nib Ogre urethane, people have been looking for awhile. I wouldn't mind finding a B/G Centaur as many people said it was a great dry lane ball.

bowlerscellar is currently selling a NIB B/G Centaur on ebay, 16 pounds though.

Thanks came to the party late so plugs in a lot of them but perfectly fine with that.  They won't crack just after the limited 1 year warranty being up like some other brands.  Probably out live me some of them.  Ended up having to get a fair number of them in 16#, but for whatever reason the 16# Visionary don't roll all that different for me like some other balls do.  Company may be gone but will live in my arsenal for many years to come.

I am currently trying to get down to a 4 ball arsenal for the fast-approaching league season. Have been taking several different balls out during summer practice and going with what I’ve been having good success with. Right now looks like what’s gonna be in my bag is-

Charcoal Executioner- This ball still amazes me.
Glad Solid- If I had to pick a “one-ball arsenal”..,
Samurai- An underrated ball imo.
Glad Pearl- Great light/medium option.

VBP fans, thought/comments? What are you guys throwing this year?

Sad to say since VBP is no more....I have moved on.  I kept the best of the old school VBP, got rid of the modern last few years of VBP as they did nothing for me and using mainly Motiv but a few others.  Venom Shock is my go to medium bench mark, T10LE for medium-heavy and going to add a Hammer Orange Vibe this year.   

I notice Spike you listed all older VBP that also worked well for me.  The new stuff was poor performance for the most part.

Scott,

I had success with Raven and Raven Pearl, plus been liking what I’m seeing with the Samurai, but yes, do like the older VBP stuff. Especially satisfying when you trounce someone with a ball >10 years old! Have a NIB Violet Gargoyle that’ll be next to hit lanes this year ( thanks G)!

I use to have a Centaur AMB. I have a Banger Hole Pounder. Visionary poured their covers for them.

Best Visionary collection in the free world lol (Mi 2 that is).  As for the Banger balls can't wait to punch up Hole Finder pearl I picked up because gave up trying to find a Warlock XV pearl instead.  So far really dig the Banger roller bag I got.
