Scored some NIB Gargoyles!
« on: February 09, 2011, 09:44:11 AM »
Was able to buy a NIB 1st Q 15# Granite Gargoyle a few weeks ago from Videoballreviews. Great specs, shorter 3-4 with 2.7 top. Thought that was great until I went into a bowling alley I had never been in tonight while traveling for work and found a NIB 1st Q 15# Violet Gargoyle with a 3 inch pin and 3 ounces of top. Couldn't believe my eyes, snatched it up for $100.

 

Not bragging, just really happy to find some NIB Gargoyles.

 

Anyone else have any NIB Gargoyles you are saving for a rainy day? Can't decide to drill these right away or stash them for another day...

Great find!!! If you like rolling honor scores put your favorite drilling on the balls and hit the lanes.


You will not see me on the PBA Tour, but I love the game!!!

I have a few sitting around.  A Clear, Granite, Green and Slate Blue.  Guess I missed getting a Violet.

I sold a Violet Gargoyle NIB 15lbs on here a few months ago for $85 shipped.

 

Bought it for $60 shipped because it was listed as 14lbs and they sent me 15lbs.

 

There are a decent amount that pop up on ebay as well. Especially the Green one. So keep an eye out there as well.


Be good, or be good at it.

you can't  add a physics term to a bowling term and expect it to mean something.

You dont want that Violet Gargolye. You should ship it to me for $free.99 

I'm in the process of trying to find out where I fit in the bowling world. I do not know my tech specs of my game, but it's all a learning process.

Thats a good one. However, the shop did not have the original box, so I would hate to ship something to you, even for free, without the appropriate box. Guess I will have to keep it.

If that was a Burgundy Particle Gryphon NIB 15#...I would have to take you up on the offer.....

 

What is the right price for your 15# Violet WITH the box????

If anyone has a NIB 15# Violet Gargoyle they are willing to sell me I will gladly take it.  That currently is my favorite ball of all time and I'd love to have another one.

 

Later,

G,

 

You make me jealous with the Gargoyles and Excutioners! How long have you had them?

Dropped my new toys off at my local shop yesterday to get punched out. Can't wait to get them back to add to the arsenal.
