I have thrown a handful of games with this ball so far and am impressed. Not blown away, but very impressed.
My ball came 16.1 lbs, 3.6 oz, 2 1/4" pin. I am a tweener with med speed and med revs. My preferred line (A game) would be close to 15 at the arrows to around 8 or so.
After taking the rest of my arsenal into consideration, my driller and I concluded that we should drill this ball strong. I don't have anything that can successfully handle the "slop" that my bowling center places in the middle of the lane. I have been forced outside all year, which is not my "A" game.
The result of the drilling was a pin x PAP of about 3 1/2 and a cg x PAP slightly further. Pin just right of ring finger. It is close to stacked. Required a weight hole as it was almost 1/2 oz illegal.
We angled the weight hole to help get the ball down the lane better. Unfortunately the place I get my equipment drilled has wood lanes while I regularly bowl on synthetics. This ball reacts completely differently for me on the two. I had trouble getting the ball to skid on the wood lanes, even though there was some head oil. Because of this, we decided to Rough Buff it. It reacted much better at the time. VERY strong off the break, not snappy, but strong.
I then proceeded to bowl a few games at my home center the next day. I found that the ball went a little too long for me and reminded me too much of my Vapor. So I went back and had him take it back to 800. That did the trick. I will say that the number of boards it covers is close to that of my Vapor on house conditions, but with a different shape. However, in heavier oil this ball starts revving up and will make the turn whereas my Vapor has a little hesitation. I will also say that for me, the ball is not a hook monster. What makes it great is the hit and carry. I have never had a ball in my hands that carries like this one. It seems to have a deep hatred for the AMFlite II's that my center uses.
I do not typically post scores, but I threw 266 first league game on a line that I have not been able to play all year (in the first game anyhow) before putting it away late-second game after trying to force it for a few frames. My one big gaffe was a 2-8-10, that I ended up converting, not sure if it was from the awesome power of this ball or just a sign from God. Of course the lanes broke down much quicker this week than they normally do, so I went to my Vapor and was able to carry better as the track broke down.
This ball will not change your life or help you score better with the opposite sex, but it may help your confidence and possibly make those around you green with "NV" (ha).
