I dont want to jump on anyones threads anymore, so im just gonna go out on my own.. Last ball i had was a danger zone black ice and an AMF XS, yea lol, its been a while//

Well In reading through these threads Im beginning to think I dont need as aggressive of a ball as I might have earlier.. Due to making threads like this ( below ) where I was looking at 3.5s missions, evil sieges, jigsaw hammers etc

http://www.bowlingcommunity.com/b/ubbthr...html#Post119986



But now Im thinking I might just want to get a cheaper mid level ball save some $$ for now, And use this new ball to use as a comparison, instead of a 12 + yr old ball.. Who knows maybe a mid level is all I need.?

But for the mid levels ive been checking out the Hammer black widow venom, wild thing, Bedlem, reign, reign of fire, Hyroad etc..

What do you guys think im pretty stumped right now

Hyroad if you want a storm. What is your style of play? If you like playing more of an outside shot I would say the Nomad or Reign of Fire, but you may need to polish up the Reign of Fire.
Nomad is a good bench mark ball, Im talking the Nomad solid.

If you want something a bit lower priced, but a steal of a ball. The COlumbia300 freeze is a great ball. Extremely easy to handle. Great core, and coverstock. Amazing bang for your buck.

Man I keep hearing ppl rave about the freeze.. everywhere !!1

I have a ball speed of 16-16.5, around 330-340 rev , usually stand around the 25 board and throw out to the 12 or so.. Mostly our lanes just have a standard house pattern, 35' i believe .. So what are you guys saying would happen if i got a wild thing, or a 3.5 in comparison to the cheaper ones? I know its really based on oil , and If I had to go to my back up ball ( which is going to be my black ice re polished ) for the 3rd game that would be fine.. I just want something for heavy oil for the first 2 games.. I already have a weaker ball ( the black ice ) so thats the only reason i was looking for something with a heavier arc

If your mainly bowling on a house shot, a mid level ball is more than enough. If you want a ball that can work on most shots you see, a Hyroad will be a great ball. I've heard it's the best benchmark ball out now. I've heard the Freeze is a good bang for the buck ball. I've never thrown one. The Reign of Fire is a great ball, but it's a strong ball. Not a ball you will use every day unless you bowl on a flood. With your ball speed and rev rate, I would go with the Hyroad or the Nomad solid. Since you have a weaker ball I wouldn't get the Freeze. Go Hyroad and you can still get the Reign of Fire as a step up to a heavy oil ball.

My benchmark ball is the Red Zone. In talking to Brunswick they told me the best match now is the Python, so it may be worth looking into.

thanks alot man for the heads up .. SO the Strongest ones like the 3.5, invasion etc are for just heavy heavy oil? I dont know why I want the top of the line highest hooking ball out there I really dont, I really think its because I want to try something different lol

That hard urethane power groove I use is great for spares, it doesn't hook on anything. Label drilled neutral with that pin at 12 o clock.
