I have the purple/silver one. I bought this ball to go between my BVP Punisher and Power Groove Dry/R, something that would turn up sooner than the Dry/R but be smoother than the Punisher. I definitely got what I wanted.
The ball was drilled label, except with a shorter pin and swung out closer to my pap, so it's my only arsenal ball where the pin is under the ring and a couple inches to the right. I left it box finish. My Punisher has a 5+ inch pin and is also label, putting it a couple inches above ring. My Dry/R is more normal with the pin a little above and to the right of ring. I also have a Lane #1 XXXL that's drilled stacked leverage.
I bowled a few games on a house shot, Saturday night @ 9pm, maybe 5-6 games on the lanes but they play drier than a lot of other places. Well maintained wood that nevertheless should be replaced, with guardian. The way the lanes were playing, I could swing anything out to 3 or 4 and have it come charging back. Using the PGR this way resulted in a satisfactory reaction of course, but that's not why I got it (that's the Punisher's realm). I squared up more, throwing right down 11 and it made a smooth and continuous move to the pocket. Where the Punisher and Dry/R rev up right off my hand and go a long way before snapping, this ball seems to hold off on revving up until the later part of the lane, but the milder coverstock prevents overreaction.
In short, I got exactly what I wanted. I saw this ball in the hands of a high speed high rev cranker and marveled at how smooth it looked. I had a gaping hole in my tournament arsenal between my Punisher (one of the most underrated balls out there right now) and my Dry/R (ditto), and this is admirably filled by the Power Groove Reactive, though honestly I would have preferred the now discontinued solid version (and I would have shined the heck out of it).
