The new Decimate is the new High Performance Ball from AMF. The F75 Coverstock with 4000 neat finish is a really strong Ball. This ball Starts a little earlier than expected but does have a strong arc to the pocket. Guys with higher ball speeds will love this ball because of how it reads the midlane. I haven`t got to use mine that much since most of the summer leagues hook,so I hit it with some compound a it really helped. I had a great look with it a little shine to it. But can`t wait to bowl on some longer patterns at box finish. Thanks 900/global/AMF

The New AMF DECIMATE has a Hybrid cover and these covers tend to be very versatile. The DECIMATE core/cover combo creates a smooth earlier roll with a strong mid-lane motion that seems to work best on medium and medium heavy oil patterns. I drilled the ball with a 4 X 3 lay-out and the break point shape was arcing in nature on both the medium and the heavier patterns. The ball never displayed any over-under reaction when leaving the pattern, so if you’re looking for a go to ball this is the one.

COMMENTS

Clean through the heads and predictable ball motion. Back end is smoother than expected. The cover takes well to surface changes. I tried this at the OOB, "E" Pad, and "E" Pad with polish. Ultimately, I found that I needed a little more surface with this one to get a little earlier read. I found the ball to do well on fresh and did not like transition very well. With polish, I was able to get a bit more snap on the back end motion as one would anticipate. At the OOB or with a bit more surface, this is an easy step down from the Moxie. Overall, this is a great benchmark type ball and will suit many styles.
