If you are good friends with the people in your local pro shop. You can just ask them to inquire about the packs and then they can order them for you.

I know it would be much easier if you were able to just order it yourself.


$20 below msrp is what my proshop offer, NO DEAL!!. They are getting almost 1 ball free. So when you talk to your prosho owner asked him how much he is paying for the ball, very little compare to what MSRP is. So, for now, I will continue to wait for new releases and wait for the proshop owner to struggle selling old balls, so I can make a deal with him and take the balls out of his hand for less that wholesale.

Good customer service goes a long way!

Sorry, Efrain.

Your logic makes no sense whatsoever.

"No Deal"

Really?

How dare someone offer a special price that isn't to your liking.

What rubbish.

The lower the price of the ball, typically the lower the markup (margin) on the ball. So, $20 off a $200 isn't the same as a $100 ball. i'd say $20 off a low end plastic ball is pretty fair, especially on a newly released one. If a discount is all you want then buy it online and pay full price to drill it. The shops I know almost always beat the online prices when you consider ball/drill/grips total price. The shops make a little on each and you have the convenience of having it now, instead of waiting for it, usually. Plus supporting your local pro shop is SOOO much better than supporting a who-knows-where-located online store. IMHO...

My guy treats me right. $180 drilled, out the door, for the Raptor Attack right at release date... He had bought the 2 ball pack and shared some of the savings with me. I don't drill a million balls a year, but he still wants me to stick with him, so I'm hooked up! Works for me.

it'd be cool to drill this ball in such a way that the logo stares back at you on the way down the lane

Than you will want to drill it with the logo on ta PAP but having a weigh block im not so sure thats a great idea.

I want this ball bad! Drilling it so it will hook in very light to dry oil and sanding it down to 500 grit dry!

I was pulling for the Recon weight block.

But talking to my pro shop they said they know nothing about a package deal for them or for the consumer.

Disappointing.

The last ball I bought that wasnt through them was my Orange recon. Only reason was it was back ordered and I needed it/wanted it quicker. So I ordered online and had it at my house in a few days.

Price Wise I would save maybe 5 dollars to losing up to 20 dollars buying a ball online vs the pro-shop. So I always go to the pro shop unless I steal something online.
