#15 Bullwhip SE
axis point 3 5/8"
tweener, 15mph
Lane Conditions - THS, Sport & Kegel Challenge
Lane Surface - Synthetic, AMF, Brunswick
Surface of bowling ball: Factory/Box
What grit was the surface of the ball? Polished
Likes: Skid & CONTROL
Dislikes: None so far.


Drilled up the Bullwhip SE 5 1/2" from PAP.  Left it OOB.  Really smooth reaction for a pearl.  It's really old school reaction that will fit nicely on today's tougher conditions.  GREAT broken down THS ball, 3rd game gem!  Lots of skid up front an a solid reactive arc for backend reaction.  Saw no reason to fool with cover yet.  Carry was good, I did have to make sure I didn't miss too wide of target.  This ball does NOT overreact to the dry which is a nice feature.  Nice arsenal ball will fit a niche.

The AMF Bull Whip utilizes the original weight block with an up dated coverstock. This ball really clears the front of the lanes and is very smooth at the break angle, which is hard to find in today's balls. I found the ball to be at its best on medium to broken down patterns. This is a ball that anyone can use no matter what your rev rate is or ball speed.

The Bull Whip..When i first received mine I just thought of this ball as a rehash of a old ball..Well I was dead WRONG..first I drilled mine with the pin below my ring finger with the cg cocked in a 45 degree angle-then I drilled a weight hold 3 inches to the reight of the midline leaving thumb weight and side weight in the ball-I used a 1 inch bit and drilled it over 2 inches deep. The reason i am spelling out the drilling is I have drilled a dozen of these and this drilling makes this ball turn and turn hard even on some oil-it carrys every hit. Some of the other drill patterns I used on this ball does not compare-the other drill patterns i used really does not give the ball the right motion and the ball also seems to squirt when hitting oil. I do not say this much on a scale of 1-20 and 20 being the highest rating I give this ball a 20 it has impressed me this much.

Likes:This ball definitely whips it on the back end. I really like what AMF has done with this new/old version of the bullwhip. I like how clean the f73 coverstock glides through the front part of the lane and makes a strong pronounced move coming off the back of the pattern. This ball is awesome on the late league pattern after the lanes have started to dry out and you have to make a move deep inside, you can just get in and let it rip! I also like using this ball on some sport patterns such as chameleon after the lanes have gotten about 15 or so games on them. This is not a ball to use on the fresh, you should have other choices in your bag for that. So if you need a ball for the examples I have just stated, then the Bullwhip is for you!! I layed this ball out with a 5x4 with no hole. Well done AMF!

I drilled my Bull Whip with the pin 5" from my axis and over the bridge.  Its layed out at 75 degrees.  Besides using it on a house shot I had the opportunity to throw it on one of the shorter Kegel patterns.  Being a pearl it is very clean through the front but I found it to be smoother.  Overall hook is slightly less than the Green Mamba.  Pin carry is good.  Overall it excels on medium conditions and will be good for when it gets later into the night.

LANE CONDITIONMostly our typical house shot, with a couple local Senior All Star tournaments

Length: 36-38 feet

Volume: med to med-heavy to start

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS and a couple of tougher heavy oil with OB.


COMMENTS

Likes: First off I love the look, first thing everyone says is that they love the ball color. But the proof is in the box. I'm a pearl lover so me and this ball are a perfect match. The ball gets down the lane smooth and easy, retains plenty of energy, and has a great roll through the pocket. The ball is easy to read, not jerky, and lets me move slowing with the pattern without having to jump 5 boards at a time. Great ball for bowlers with a slower ball speed, as the Pearl lets the ball float through the heads. Fastly becoming one of my favorites...jime 8)

Dislikes: So far I don't see any dislikes, looks like a great THS league ball I can use for 3 games, je

I remember the original and watching bowlers play deeper angles than anything I had seen at that time. So, when AMF (900) brought this back out just had to have one. I have not been disappointed. With the original core wrapped by a more aggressive pearl cover this thing is what skid - flip is all about or as I have described it the original on steroids. Once the lanes open up to the right this ball becomes a monster. Mine came with a 3" pin and 2 3/4 oz. of top weight. Set it up with at 5.25 x 4 with weight hole located above my PAP an inch. Easily clears the heads and mid lane as a pearl should and then left hand turn. Recent outing at a SASBA sweeper the lanes fried fast and had to make a big jump left. Grabbed the Bullwhip and opened it up for back 8 and some $$ in the pocket. Had incredible room but a slight tug would catch some oil and hold pocket. I use this as a step down from my Look and makes a nice 1 -2 punch when I need this type reaction.

LANE CONDITION


Type : THS


COMMENTS

Likes:Skid/flip ball for all the hockey stick motion lovers. First use of the SE was on the fresh playing up the boards. Just as advertised clears heads, stores energy until accounting friction then the fun begins. Drilled mine pin in ring finger http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a238/9orbetter/AMF-900Global/BullWhip2.jpg left in OOB condition until recently changed to 4000 abralon. Must better reaction from deeper angles with cover change. Know when to use and scores will show.

Dislikes: OOB condition

The Bull Whip Special Edition

Layout: 50x 5 1/4x50

On house patterns the Bull Whip SE is phenominal. It has built in recovery from almost anywhere. I was relieved to see this core used again, it was in one of my favorite balls a few years back. With a slightly softer release the Bull Whip SE allows me to stay closer to the friction and play where many of the strokers are. In those times when deeper angles aren't carrying that move to the right makes a huge difference keeping my head above water.

On Sport the Bull Whip SE excels when the heads are choppy and length is needed. Through carrydown this ball can be a weakness.....however there is enough energy stored for down lane that it will cut through it if you can get the balll around it. I have hit a few heavier patterns that had screaming backends and this ball skated but made a move to the pocket all day.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
