Whenever Tommy Jones is asked about his favorite ball of all time, he always points to the Big Time. Tommy throwing the Big Time on TV was memorable for many bowlers, and we thought it was time to finally put the Big Time back in Tommy’s bag. The Big Time Special Edition has the same core shape and colors as the original and will be a favorite benchmark type of ball. While the colors are the same, the cover has been updated with HK22 and the GB 13.7 additives. This throwback perfectly fits the current Ebonite line, adding a symmetric pearl with a dull finish that can be used on medium to heavy oil conditions, and it will work great when bowlers need earlier and stronger mid-lane motion than the Emerge or GB4 Hybrid.

    Big Time Hook

    Posted by Mark Hanken on Jan 31st 2024

    The Big Time has a very strong cover and flat-out hooks. I have only put 3 games on mine to date, but I have tried playing multiple angles. If I square up the oil line and bump the friction, it looks amazing. When moving in and circling the pattern it is very responsive off the friction. This wasn’t the best look for me on our particular house shot. I am looking forward to throwing it on some higher volume sport or challenge patterns. I think this is when it will shine.

    The big time se is a symmetrical pearl ball that comes sanded at 1500. Even though this ball takes surface adjustments really well and a lot of people are polishing it like the original I’ve been happy with the benchmark motion it gives me out of box. The addition of hk22 allows this ball to read the midlane without getting lost in the oil with your misses inside. If you need a benchmark ball option out of the ebonite line this is the one to grab.

    I'm telling you, it's a good ball !

    Big Time SE is Ebonite's latest release. It's a symmetrical pearl with a dull finish with HK22 coverstock base material, finished at 500/1000/1500 siaair micro pad. What I see out of the ball is a benchmark type ball, it's versatile, and it takes surface adjustments really good. For me, I like it at 1000.It picks up a little sooner without loosing energy, keeping that continuation exiting the pins. I'll leave you with this quote from Bob Newman, "I'm telling you, this is a good ball". Go check out Bob's video on the Big Time Se. He shares his insight on the Big Time SE.

    Ebonite Big Time SE

    Posted by Bob Newman on Dec 5th 2023

    I like that Ebonite did something different and put out a pearl cover ball without shining it up. How many times do we get a pearl ball and end up taking off the polish or compound anyway? I've seen several reviews where people were making them shiny, but I think this ball rolls well just the way it is. It picks up earlier than most Pearls and has a smoother motion but isn't that what you want to control the back ends on most patterns? Joey Tribiani once said, “I like it. What’s not to like? Custard? Good. Jam? Good. Meat? Good.” Well I say, "Smooth? Good. Surface? Good. Strikes? Good. I like it."

    Med- Heavy oil ball , has HK22 and the GB 13.7 additives, and DynamiCore whick changes what the ball does when it hits the pins. I saw a Strong overall hook. For a Symmetrical ball it has a strong movement down lane.

    Big Time SE

    Posted by Brian DeLuisa-Anderson on Nov 12th 2023

    I drilled mine 45 X 4 X 50. The new Ebonite Big Time Special Edition is outstanding. The Big-Time core is paired with the HK-22 cover. With a 1500-grit factory finish, the Big Time SE is a versatile pearl capable of handling heavier volume patterns. It is a very early and continuous piece. The Big Time SE is a great symmetrical option offering much control. The release date is 11/16/23! Pre-order yours today!
