When Randolph Bowling Supply of Copley, Ohio, released their Technika II ball, they were sure it would be a hit. The company claimed the ball represented a great technological breakthrough with a softer outer shell and new placement of weighted cores called the Compensators. The Professional Bowlers Association (PBA), however, was not so keen on the ball. The PBA rejected three requests to include the ball in tournaments. The PBA asserted that the ball was not widely available and that the ball had failed hardness compliance tests. The ball remained in production but did not see the success of other balls.
