I'm selling my prized bowling ball as i can hardly bowl anymore due to knee problems. from what i understand and have seen, this is a VERY rare ball made by roto grip. i've been bowling for 20 years and been in the bowling industry for 13 years, and never seen another ball like this. i'll let the pictures speak for themselfs. there is only one mark and some small scratches on this ball from normal play. i'm going to ask 100 shipped OBO. some trades might be welcome, just ask.



ON WITH PIC'S :D

duck tape FTW?


What size hand does it fit?

it's drilled for a lefty. but since there isn't any fancy drill pattern to it all that would need to be done is plug the thumb and move it where ever it needs to go to make the span and pitch correct.

its drilled finger tipped. It fits his hand, unless you have the same size hand/fingers/thumb your gonna need a new slug and tips at the least.

really? a lefty? the finger placement actually look righty. I guess depends on shape of your hand.

***** about the ball getting cracked
did you have it stored in a place that gets real hot, that could of done it

rollerdj
08-04-2008, 07:40 PM
fit's me pretty good. but hell, i only throw it 3 to 4 times a game at the most.

nope. i work at the bowling ally, all my bowling balls sit next to my tool box in the back. i've heard once or twice of this happening.

Ya by the way the crack goes all the way around it does look like it got warm for a long period of time and cracked it.

bhsdriller
08-04-2008, 07:45 PM
Yeah it happened to a friend of mine
He kept it in his truck and here it's 95-100 degrees outside in the summer and it cracked all the way around like yours

rollerdj
08-04-2008, 07:48 PM
thats the odd thing. it wasn't in my car, just sitting in the bag with all the others in the back of the house. (bowling center) and there is some pretty good A/C back there. oh well. maybe i should start a poll on what to do.


A- shoot the hell out of it.
B- drop if from the roof of my house to the concrete below.
C-???


anyway, no one wants to buy a ball? (the RG that is)

what trades you looking for?

i had my battle resurfaced 4 times and it took off almost 3/4th of a pound lol.

is this plastic?

bhsdriller
08-04-2008, 07:50 PM
I vote option B
I did the same thing but we just threw it up in the air as high as we could onto the asphalt
It was surprisingly pretty tough to break it up

rollerdj
08-04-2008, 07:50 PM
yes, plastic. trades would be anything new from track plus money on my part.



<-- Track fanboy.

i just picked up a black widow venom.
i need a sick ball to go with it.i dont know if i should retire my widow pearly or my track crunch time.

silvercookie
08-04-2008, 07:51 PM
i have an artillery arsenal i dont use.
seen about 5 games if that.
but it is too nice to traed away lol.

rollerdj
08-04-2008, 07:53 PM
that crunch time is a oldy but goodie. how u like the venom? we've had 3 drilled up in our center. none of them really did well. :(

This thread is gonna make me go buy new bowling balls. I was already on the bowling kick today this is gonna put me ova the edge.

that crunch time is a oldy but goodie. how u like the venom? we've had 3 drilled up in our center. none of them really did well. :(

the way i throw. like 2000rpm lol.

crunch time=venom on reaction
on length the venom gets down father than the crunch but that could just be because it is a pearl as the crunch is a dull.

i am also a track fanboy.

whenever i see a track ball at the alley that is not cracked i take it, get it resurfaced, drilled. and store it for emergency.
i have 5 sitting in my closet and i bought 3 of them.

i found the crunch on the rack lol.

but the venom is beastly.

it is probably the same. i forget. sorry.

well i just noticed the blue heat has acquired a 2" or so long scratch but it is very light.
it also has 2 small belt burn patches from a tournament.

was on the 3rd game and was going for a 700 series.
belt burn was right one my roll. friggin guttered practically 2 in a row on 6 strikes.:verymad::verymad::verymad::verymad::verym ad::verymad::verymad:

i only had it resurfaced once so it could use another.

was just looking over the blue heart again and it seems i missed a scratch.
it is kind of deep but if you resurface it will be fine.

love the grenade weight block!!!
I had my Combat Zone's weight block start rattling around, something broke off and when you put your thumb in the ball it would wiggle :laugh:
I have never seen anything like that though! I've taken my bowling bag from a -5 degree trunk and put it in a 70 degree house and all it did was make some odd pearlized swirls in the ball lol (combat zone solid). I'm surprised that didnt crack it like yours got cracked!

this is what i've seen over the years is some brands and lines will work well for once person and not another. i thing me being a ''full roller'' with my ball speed and rev rate track balls seem to line up very well with me. on the other hand, every ball i've had from ebonite (7 in total) has all hit the pocket like a marshmelow.
