Equipment from yesteryear

Does anyone know where I can find balls from the late 90s and early 2000s. There are a few available on ebay but im tring to locate some good balls from my youth days so I can teach these kids a thing or two.

Re: Equipment from yesteryear

Because many of the older balls will have cracked, it might be difficult to find many balls from that era in one piece. Also, they're like tires, what do you do with them when they are no longer in use? Maybe check the bowling centers in your area.

What are you going to teach them, when the balls in the late 90's were reactive, maybe not the strength of today's but they were still reactive.

Re: Equipment from yesteryear

Back then most guys were throwing 16lb. Will that work? I have a Matrix TPS III in 16lb that today many would ignore due to weight.

Irwin Atkinson still has NIB Nuggets for sale. This ball was made in 1995. He can be found at Roll-X pro shop in Buffaloe Lanes North Raleigh NC.
