What balls do you already have?

Where is the obvious gap in your arsenal that you want to fill?

And finally what color do you like best?
I ask this because it could easily come down to the ball you like the looks of best.

Color / look can and does have an effect in my belief. There have been a few balls that I just could not stand to look at going down the lane and I think it affected my attitude towards the ball.

Hammer Deadly Aim comes to mind. Just flat hated that ball, more based on looks than anthing.

I've got the Guru Limited and Supreme. Personally, prefer Mighty and Master.

Three of my teammates have the Hammer Black Widow Red Legend (pearl) and I threw one last night and thought it was fantastic in our new house. Clean, smooth, fantastic shape (basic pin up).

I always wanted an Inferno, finally found a clean 15 lb (original) but gave it to my Dad. So, that is a ball I've always wanted to throw but for me the Hammer would win with our current conditions.
