The Crow
« on: March 26, 2017, 08:52:12 AM »
You guys that have had the crow now for awhile.Tell me your thoughts.To me most urethane balls out do not flare enough.I tried the new blue hammer and 900 global BooYah.They didnt really flare enough to be very useful.I want to try the Crow,but at 139.95 it better be special.What got my attention was this video.Look at 55 seconds in there is some serious flare on The Crow.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qS4lNARcDxw

Usage of Crow is all dependent on your bowling stats. and type of lane condition it's used on plus layout.

For me, I found it to be not for light oil at all.  It flares a ton with a 4.75" pin to PAP pin above and for me is good on medium house shots.  VBP states it's a medium ball on their website. 

A new EBI Hammer produced Blue Hammer would be a better light oil urethane choice IMO.

My stats. are in profile.

Bowled on the older WTBA Stockholm 34 foot pattern last night and The Crow was awesome. It was the first night on a short pattern this season where I was totally confident in my ball reaction. Happy that this ball is now part of my short sport arsenal.

Nice, The Crow is a good urethane. If anyone is looking for a stronger urethane they need to look at Visionary The Crow.

Wonder if Seismic is keeping them that busy.  Seems like because now you can't even get the Warlock Pearl IIRC.  Didn't realize those Warlocks are 2 piece or might have picked one up.  That said yeah their line is due for a refresh.  Love my Crow and Ogre Urethane so much hard to be too hard on them.

Warlock XV Pearl was discontinued quite a while ago.  The Warlock XV and Samurai will be discontinued soon if they haven't already.  If you want one, better get it now.
