My Terminator is 7 y/o, and keeps rolling. Don't know how many thousands of games it has on it. But, like Who's, it is too strong for any House Shot, but comes out in any Tournament with heavier oil.

I have rid myself of all older equipment that is not used. 3 are under metalic paint in the wife's garden. And, I don't remember what ther are.

My oldest is a Faball Black Hammer that I picked up used about 18 years ago. Only good for 10-pins and 6-10s these days. Given my rev rate, I only end up using it for those spares when the lanes are pretty dry.

Still, it's served me pretty well.

My Columbia 300 Scout Reactive. Old faithful that I learned with and still crush with. 13 board? No problem. 1 board? No problem. Spares? No problem. All around badassery ensues when we team up. So suck on that all you peeps that maintain that ball needs a weight block to be great.

Only downside, I need med-dry or dry conditions. Good thing I live in San Diego and see that A LOT! thumbsup

"Spirit of 76"....... Not using but I still have this ball. It was the 1st ball that I ever bought back in the mid 70s. My wife still has hers too a mustard, yellow, and white Brunswick Crown Royal. Choosing my 1st ball back then was for the looks not by performance.

I have... let's see... *looks over shoulder to corner of room...

A Slate U Dot
A Cuda2000
Banger Hole Pounder Solid
Track Critical Mass

There are a few more, but their all over Reno at this time. Either on racks at other houses, in the arms of friends, or just in the house somewhere and not accounted for.
Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but throwing strikes excites me.

Faball Blue Hammer that I find myself using often on house shots. The ball was purchased at the first release so I want to say 1993, but could be a touch earlier (but I am almost certain it is early 90's)
