I don't even know where to start with the latest Ebonite creation from Ronald Hickland. The idea that originally had with this ball would be something that complimented the Challenge that I have drilled identically. Well I was in for a big WoW factor out of the box; this is the cleanest, most angular ball I have ever thrown. On the fresh 39 ft house condition I am easily 5 boards with my feet, 3 boards with my eyes and spotting further down the lane compared to the Challenge. After throwing about 15 in a row with the box surface, I changed the cover with a little application of factory finish to compare with the Champion.
The Champion also has the same Pin and CG distance and MB locations. I really like my look with the Champion on this particular house pattern, clean enough through the front but a strong motion through the back part of the lane without burning out of energy. When the Pivot cover is shined up it allowed me to open up the lane more and create more angle. The Pivot was even had more room to miss and get back to carry some of the half ten pocket hits I sometimes would leave with the Champion.
This new product from Ebonite is going to be the move that we have once seen from balls like the One, Matrix and Vortex lines, a power move on the market. This ball is a must have in any players bag. I can't wait to drill another one! ToolBox Out!!!
