I have thrown the Ebonite Matrix, Ebonite's newest UMP bowling ball. I missed out on the original, and could not miss it again. I have thrown it on a few THS, and 2 patterns. I liked the color combo of black/red when I first seen it. After using it, the motion became more of a like. It is so clean in the fronts, with strong motion down the lane, but not snappy either. I have my layout pin up between my fingers, CG slightly left, drilled into the mass bias. This bowling ball is not one you should skip, especially if you missed the first time like me...

  In a continuation on the retro front, last year Mission Unk, Ebonite brings out the Matrix. A great rolling ball that lasted numerous years has made a return, and it rolls great too. Drilled one pin up, 60x4x30, and was impressed from the word go. I threw this out in Vegas at a few tournys during the summer, and modified the cover along the way, which impressed at the shape modification with/out the polish.

  Moving forward this is a great league play ball. It has just enough to bite on the fresh, and as lanes break down this ball should be in play for quite sometime without massive moves. The colors are good in the black with orange highlights and makes it easy to read through the pindeck. If you are a fan of any of the GB coverstock's this is an asymmetric shape with that proven cover.

Used my standard pin up drilling on my new Matrix.
For me this ball isn't super angular off the spot
which is one of the things I like the most about it.
This ball is a good compliemnt to my Maverick Pearl.
When the Maverick is too much on the backend, the Matrix
smooths that look out considerably.  This ball will replace
my Mission Uknown, plus the ball is black, has there ever been
a bad black ball ever made?
