We have never run into that here. But I do know that Lanemasters "rush" to fill the overseas orders. But their quality control is pretty high. So Its really unknown what the problem is.


Erin, actually it was my Conquerer instead of my Sure Strike that had the problem. The Conquerer supposedly has a tri-density cover, however the filler, from what I have been able to gather, is supposed to be of a very high density, even higher than the outer coverstock material. Only my Lane Masters Black Pearl has the coverstock material through to the core with no filler material.

If the filler had not fully cured, would it remain in this state or would it eventually cure over time? Also, should this failure to initially cure have a detrimental effect on ball performance? Could it possibly not fully bond and hold the weight block in place?

It's probably too late to contact Lane Masters concerning the problem since I bought the ball February 2008 and even if they concluded that there was a problem with the ball and accepted fault, it would most likely result in a logistical nightmare trying ot get it replaced.
