Question Looking for a unicorn (Original Ebonite Black Turbo-15lbs)

Anybody have one, or know of one in decent shape?
Preferably one with white lettering, but will consider any and all.

I know a NIB is impossible, cause I wouldn't be able to afford one, even if found, but a nice condition single drill would be good to find.

Don't have much to trade, unless you want 14lb stuff. Got some of those around here.

Please, lmk if you have one or can get one you'd let go of reasonably.

Thanks.

Says it's a 13 lb'er.
I need a 15 lb'er.
Thanks.

That was my first fingertip drilled ball. I kept it for a long time but ended up selling it about 5 years ago. Good luck, I kind of wish I would have kept mine...

There was also a purple one called the Nitro Purple Haze which was designed for use on drier conditions.


Right now, just looking for the black Turbo model. Thanks.

If so, I didn't know they made them until the core logos came out.

Question: What does the logo on the side say? If it says ANYTHING other than TURBO, then probably not.

They made a "Black Panther" model that I am not interested in at all.

That's too bad, I don't do Facebook.

I do, however, appreciate you finding it and remembering me.

I am trying to get a hold of the person but he proves elusive thus far. If he has it I will make sure you get it.

Thank you. I sincerely appreciate your efforts.

It doesn't surprise me that it sold quickly. Ball looked to be a pin out in excellent condition.

Guess I'll have to console myself with the old blue hammer I got.

Yea, the one on eBay is a little chewed up too. I'll keep an eye out.

At this point, I think I am just going to move on. I really was hoping to find one before winter league started, and probably would've bought that one you found, but we start next week, and I'm going to get my equipment ready to go this week.

I have an original Nitro, Black Hammer, Red Pearl Hammer, and a fully plugged Blue Hammer I need to get drilled back out.

If I found one at an incredible deal, I might bite now, but I'm on the verge of deciding between a Tank Rampage, a Fanatic BTU, or a Hot Cell. Been waiting on more feedback about the Hot Cell before pulling the trigger. Once I make that purchase, that'll be it for a while.

Re: Looking for a unicorn (Original Ebonite Black Turbo-15lbs)

Is there a difference between orange and white writing? I think my home lanes has one of each on the rack. I have to bowl mixed league tomorrow night and could take pics if still interested.

White labels were the first ones, the orange labels came later.

Other than the labels, I do not think there is any difference.
