As with Dennis I left bowling in 1982 and did not get back into bowling until around 2008. In 1982 I was using a D.I.C.K Weber Five Star. It seem to be a very popular ball back then and would be a candidate for the HOF. The big marketing gimmick was that it was a bigger ball. It was the only ball I used an averaged around 190. So I missed out on a lot of ball development. But from the period after 2009 I would say the Hy-Road should be in the HOF. I like mine but it has tamed down from out of box and is relegated to lighter conditions playing down and in around the 5 board. I find all the Storm balls tame down quite a bit. When I did got back into bowling it was more experimentation with balls and with my overall game. On this site and other forums I kept hearing about Lane Masters ball and got a NIB The New Standard off the WEB for $65. Comparing all balls I purchased since 2009 this is still my best ball. Although it will never make a HOF it forced USBC to change its ball specs due to its Diamond particle cover. The Scratch Test. Unlike Storm balls the L/M balls do not loose their reaction.

Balls come and go but what what is very interesting is the recycling of cores. Some of the cores seem to have been around for a long time. As with L/M the Dynasty core, Hammer the GASMASK core, Ebonite the Centrex core in The One series, and Storm even the Hy-Road inverted FE2 core. So if you think you missed out on a ball that should be in HOF wait a little bit some version of it with the same core may come back into production.
