Lou, your so right! They have so many ppl ordering the flare and venom they have push forward from dec4th to the 9th or 11th I believe. Can not wait for these two to be in my bag. Flare/Venom. Great video. Oh my original forge in pin down, forge fire is pin up, over ring fing,CG KICKED out 3/4” to the left 55x5x45. Cannot wait for these two. Great bowling you did. Oh crap the shirts are Awesome brother man’
I am LOVING this Flare!! Thanks for the kind words!!
I think the forge is better than the nemesis, The new jackal kicks the nemesis out of the bag.I had it (nemesis)but didn’t really carry it much but carried the forge more often for short patterns & the forge fire, is always in my bag, Alpha, venom, VIP, desert tank, tank blitz .
For me the Flare is way better than the nemesis!
MotivLou / I agree, did not like the nemesis or it’s other brother before the nemesis?
MotivLou / I agree with the rest of the ppl about the Alpha up against the flare?
Wat your option on the forge flare to the forge fire
Flare is way earlier and more ball than the Fire
Johanna Brown / forge Flare has a different shell so it has a strong mid lane Read, and continue strong Roll to the pocket.. if this helps you
I throw primarily forge fire and jackle alpha
Both great balls!!
Ways your option on the hackle flash
I LOVE the jackal Flash!
I’m hoping to see the Alpha Jackal comparison and the surface video. I’m really curious about both.
Both of those videos will 100% happen!!
Really want to see the surface video before anymore comparison video you do with the forge flare
That video is coming forsure!!
Alpha Jackal would be a good comparison
Yea I agree!! That’ll 100% happen
Wassup MotivLou. Really nice video ball comparison.
OG Forge for me. This video convinced me to buy ANOTHER OG Forge, but
this one will have a pin up layout; my current OG Forge is pin down. I like
the way the Flare shapes and how strong it seems, but the colors… ugh…
just as ugly as the Fire.
Keep up the good work. THX FOR SHARING
I don’t love the colors either LOL but it strikes a ton! I appreciate the kind words!!
Great video again man
Thanks so much Jeff!!
Only thing I’d do different, is I’d use the True Cut sanding pads from Creating The Difference. Ive seen so much better motion out of my stuff instead of Abralon, and they even last WAY longer than Abralon
That’s what I use the true cut pads. I just call then Abralon lol any pads I use that’s what I call them.
@MotivLou Ah gotcha. I swear by them now. They’re so much better than actual abralon pads
I bounce back and fourth between the two. I LOVE the p5000d pad
We definitely need to see this compared to an Alpha. Great work Luis, keep the vids coming!
That’ll def happen!! Thanks for the feedback!!
And I ask my self, how did I get here
What do you mean??
Hi Lou,would you suggest the Flare for someone who is a lower rev rate and ball speed(14mph) to help open up angles? BTW love the videos.
YES! Absolutely! This is a great option for when you want to open up the lanes !!
@MotivLou Thanks, gonna pre-order.
Would like to see the video done using the same layout
I wish I had a OG forge with this layout on the flare. Not ideal I admit but the pin up flare with small Val angle is still earlier than the forge 😂
Thanks Luis! Great video. Hope you can share a video on how different surfaces affect the Forge Flare soon.
I’m going to be working on that eventually just been so busy! But that video will 100% happen
Pin down does not roll earlier
Every pin down ball I’ve drilled seems to respond earlier to the friction than pin up. The pin up makes that response take a little longer
@MotivLou Its all about the mass removed from drilling. More mass from the weight block top is removed with pin down, thus reducing flare. Pin up removes mass from the lower portion of the core (thumb hole) thus increasing flare. This assumes same pin distance length from the pap. Not a 5″ vs a 4″. Does this clarify things some? Great videos I might add.
@Joe Cerar oh no I totally understand what you’re saying. I do appreciate your kind words! 🙂
@MotivLou its all about spherical geometry-mass removal
MotivLou, I have recently purchased a slighly used Forge, as well as put in my order for the Forge Flare. I am anxious to get my hands on these. Now I am rolling my Alpha Jackal and Trident Abyss, and I am hoping these two new additions, will give me some more options. Thanks for rhe video.
You’re gonna love that Flare!! But it looks like you need some weaker balls in your bag as well
@MotivLou I have weaker balls, Tank Rampage, Tank Covert, Tank Blitz, Venom Shock, 2 Venom Shock Pearls, Venom Recoil, and Venom Fatal as of Sunday, among others
I will be drilling my Flare tomorrow for league Thursday at Southpoint… Super stoked about this ball as I believe it will support me with a variety of options. As a 185 book average or so, I’m really looking for this ball to get me over the hump!
Fingers crossed! What league do you bowl?? I bowl the trios on Thursdays in the plaza
@MotivLou No Kidding!? Some of my closest friends bowl in that league (Matt Frieberg and Johnny Petraglia Jr) I’m with the FunSeekers downstairs but always come up after. I’ll look for ya this week
@justin truelove oh yea!! I’ve seen you around the plaza!!
