Re: Used Bowling Ball Values

The best you can do is search ebay and the for sale forums. Bottom line is how bad does someone want it, and that someone may not be out there when your ball is for sale...so how bad do you want to get rid of it.

Re: Used Bowling Ball Values

Proshop friend of mine was wanting to start a trade in service for people that want to upgrade to new gear. He thought it would be a good way for people to move up in gear and get his sales moving a little better. He planned to just resell the trade ins for as close as he could get to what he gave for them. I am not sure on the specifics of how he was going to do this but he asked me if I knew of such a thing and I told him I did not. For example he has a client that has a Blue Urethane Hammer and he wondered if he could get $20 for it. Stuff like that. It is his cash for clunkers sale! LOL!

Re: Used Bowling Ball Values

Someone should come up with a website similar to the PGA and golf club values.

http://valueguide.pga.com/index.php

It just uses ebay sales and averages it out I believe.

Re: Used Bowling Ball Values

Yeah that would be a good thing. He is gonna start this soon and wants me to help get "Rid of those old junkers", as he puts it. So I might just cherry pick over the buried treasures he finds. I will keep you guys posted when I find them and I will put them in my forum. I will start a thread in my forum where you guys can request used balls and I can look at it and see what I come across.

Re: Used Bowling Ball Values

Used ball value is dependant on 3 things:


Ball rarity, ball condition, and market value.

Re: Used Bowling Ball Values

This I know and that is the hard part. Like I said I might just cherry pick the good stuff. He doesnt want it. He just wants it to be gone. We will see.

Re: Used Bowling Ball Values

There is a place in Vegas that sells alot of used balls on FeeBay. They generally start the bidding at around $19 or so for a decent ball + shipping ( $9 for an unpopular or worse condition) and then in the ad they offer pro shop services for the ball you buy.

Re: Used Bowling Ball Values

i wouldnt do the whole cash for clunkers thing it will hurt the business more than help it. beucase some people will think their ball is worth more than they want. and if somebody brings in a gold rhino and somebody else brings in a track temper and the gold rhino bring more becuase of rarity, then you have to explain that to the customer, and he will say who cares how rare a bowling ball is its old its not as good as the newer stuff.

Re: Used Bowling Ball Values

Like I said I dont know the specifics and keep in mind this is aimed more at newer bowlers that want to move up from a low level ball to a mid or high performance piece. He probably will just say $20 cash for your clunker sale is what I would suspect, but then again I dont know.
