    It does?! Then the one with a meter speed of 9.0 will actually be "only" 8.0 when equipped?

    Somewhere within these fine forums I believe Champion commented on the issues with the new Bridgestone balls.

    WGT is aware and are working on it.  Per WGTChampion in another thread.

     

     

    LOL again Don you and I replying to threads around the same time.  I usually open a few threads at a time to read read and when I posted my reply your reply wasn't there when I opened the thread.

    Thanks for the info, KnightMetal, Don and hpurey.

    What will be the fix, I mean, just changing the meter speed number displayed or actually slowing down the meter as it says? Will be interesting to see.

    Please let us know when you do.

    BTW TG/WGT is seemingly going to the exact opposite direction. I mean many including myself have been asking balls with high distance & spin attributes but faster meter speed (0.0-2.0) in a reasonable price range of 300-400 credits for instance, and they've come up with these Bridgestone stuff.

    Maybe what they misunderstand is the cheaper the balls are, the less their sales volume will be. No, most people will spend the same amount of credits to purchase their favourites, the only difference is players will get more balls for the money they spend. If you're still not convinced, then reduce the durability of such "cheaper fast-metered high attribute balls". I'll still keep on buying them a whole bunch over and over.

    Bridgestone stuff is simply... ridiculous!

    For the L52 Bridgestone ball, they could take .5 from the distance and add it to the durability and create a slow metered L33 Callaway ball.  I'd probably jump on it just for the meter speed.  ;-)

    Ball meter speed of 7 and a 45sec shot clock in mobile just don't make sense.  I hate the slow meters as I like to hit in 15secs or less.
