After drilling a Clash, and assessing the price-point Ebonite has placed the ball in, all I have to say is WOW!
The Clash combines all the success of balls like the Cross Fire and Whirl Wind with extreme continuation through the back end and great hitting power! Bowlers will get the reaction and look of a Platinum Series ball through one of the lower-price points Ebonite has to offer.
The Clash is extremely clean through the front and middle part of the lane, but when this ball sees friction on the back end it takes control. It provides bowlers with a more-traditional “skid / flip” reaction despite the strong coverstock. I have found this ball to be great on house patterns or when the front part of the lane is a little dryer and with a modification to my speed or hand position. Comparing the Clash to the Bash, they are very similar in the fronts and middle, however, the Clash “tips” much harder then the Bash when friction is met down the lane. Despite how strong this ball is, it is still not a huge fan of heavy units of oil. I would suggest using this ball on medium to lower oil patterns.
