1st off the Bullet Train is a monster on the lanes! But also VERY playable on the lanes. I like the versatile hybrid cover. Drilled this very basic pin up 6" from PAP right over the label. I'm a slower tweener and didn't want this one to burn up too fast. Put some compound polish on it as the ball looks really dull even though it's Global's A pad finish. OOB 760/290. The ball was aggressive but I was able to stay with it for 3 games without much trouble. Moved 5 and 3 total for the night. Has some skid up front, a strong midlane read and a stronger hard arc on the backend. Carry was super. What was impressive is that the last game when everyone was having carrydown issues I had none to speak of! 290 finish! Other bowlers on the pair using IQ's, Aura's were having issues with getting the ball to finish. I'm extremely impressed with the ball's hitting power and cover that's very tweakable. Bullet Train's a winner on medium to heavy for any style in my book!
