No run Jason do not do it Pour for them but do not become another victim to the buyout, pour for them and Legends.

The other rumor is Legends is seeking a company to pour 3 piece balls for them, since they only can make 200-300 balls a day currently.

If you pour for them you win anyway just think about all the extra profit you guys can make, it would be a win-win deal.

For the sake of us all...DO NOT LET IT HAPPEN!!!  Make them pay you to pour, if that.

I wouldn't worry to much, I wouldn't trust a word out of RayRays mouth... LOL

But I can't say I would mind to much, I actually just finished u a deal to get my first Visionary ball, the Ogre, and have been thinking of trying out their stuff for some time...

I too was looking to try something new since I pretty much only throw ebonite and hammer. I ordered an ogre the other day and should be here today. And I just picked up a lane 1 G Force Nebula. So I will have to see how they do.

Hi all,

Just to lay some of the rumors to rest, we are not currently in negotiations to be bought by Lane 1.  If they are interested in buying, and trying to raise funds to do so, it is not something that we are aware of.

Over the past few years, we have grown significantly and have a very positive outlook on the future.  We don't have any intentions of going anywhere, and hopefully we will continue to grow over time.

That being said, we are business men, and if someone were to blow us away with an offer, you never know what could happen.  So, if any of you are billionaires, and want to send us to a happy early retirement, I'm here to talk  I don't see our corporation changing hands anytime soon though.

Thanks again,
Jason Wonders

There is a god thank you Jason why ruin a good thing you have going on, playing golf everyday in early retirement would just get old anyway.

Look even your arch rival Mr. cardinale is still in business even after making a ton of dough from Ebonite, he could have retired but loves being the bowling ball guru that he is.

Notice Jason said "some" of the rumors.  He did not touch on Visionary pouring covers for Lane1.  Maybe that's the case.

As long as it is just pouring lane1 and not lane1 buying I am cool, and Visionary is to cool to be bought IMO
