Length: 42FT

Volume: Medium

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS so far

COMMENTS: I was looking for a ball that I could use as a good step down from my Edge Solid or Grudge Pearl and be a little smoother than my Vandal Destroy, this fits the spot perfectly. I drilled this ball with my usual Pin-up above ring finger drilling, I was hoping for a ball that would get down the lane a little further than the Edge Solid and have a smooth but still strong backend and that is what I got. The Edge Pearl has decent length but not to long and really reads the lane perfectly and controls the breakpoint perfectly. I had been using a Vandal Destroy as my step down after these two but at times it was a little to jumpy of the spot and I would leave some 4 pins or even a stone 9pin due to the strong angle.
 Sometimes when the lanes are really crisp on the backend or they start to breakdown a little I like to still use a ball with a smoother backend so it wont be extremely snappy and hard to control. If you are looking for a ball that will make THS look easy this will be that ball on medium oiled lanes. I'm looking forward to using this ball at the USBC National Tournament this year also, this and the Edge Solid will be getting a lot of play I think.

This ball is amazing. Starting from the price point, to the versatility, to the hitting power. It provides nice easy length, midlane read, and backend continuation. The layoutI put on the ball is 70x5x30. This ball for me has the same length as the freakshow pearl but is smoother off the breakpoint, not as flippy, with more continuation. Definitely a benchmark ball for me.
