So to begin this review, I have to say that I was not a huge fan of the first Adrenaline.  I tried different surfaces and layouts but just couldn't find a spot in my bag for it.  The Overload on the other hand does not have this problem.  First game out of the box I knew I would like this ball.  It has more pop than the original Adrenaline and just a tad more angle than I could get from the GB2 Gold.  This will be my go to ball when I need some push through the front of the lane, but not as much angle as the Warrior gave me.  The GB12.0 Pearl coverstock is all it's cracked up to be.

Layout:
5 x 5  PIN over bridge. No extra hole.
BOX Specs: 2-3" pin, 2.75oz

Review:
This layout and new pearl cover provides more length and more back end than the Adrenaline Shot. The move off the breakpoint is not jerky but strong. I have the Shot drilled similar and this one is isn't as early. I would say it to be about 4 and 2 right compared to the Adrenaline Shot. Even though the surface is finished with Clean-n-Sheen polish, trust that it will recover. When the track area gets toasty from everyone using their dull equipment, I found this ball to excel. It does not read early unless you're completely on top of the dry. It's been an easy decision to switch to this ball and watch it do it's work. Ebonite is making great bowling balls and if you're not drilling any of them, you're missing out. This is another fantastic piece here. If you're looking for a ball in the later stages of an event or something to get down-lane, this is it.
