Received mine through the PBA offering over a month ago, but did not drill it cause I wanted to see what the rest of my new equipment did before I decided how to drill the Warrior. Ball is 15#, 2-3 inch pin, 3 ounces of top. With the huge diff on this ball, I decided I wanted more control, so I put the pin at 1:30 tucked under my ring finger stacked with the PSA on a 45 degree angle from the CG. Finally drilled it and used it Saturday, after a women's league on Friday, where most of them use either plastic or early urethane balls, then a pee-wee junior league Saturday morning, where all the little kids, including mine, were using plastic balls. CAN YOU SAY CARRYDOWN? Well, I tried my Aggression first, had to move outside and alost play up the gutter, but still didn't have much kick on the backend. Tried my Adrenaline, which is drilled almost identical to the Warrior, and it did less than the Aggression. Original Apex next, still no backend, followed by the V2 Reactive, Predator Sparkle, Intensity still no luck. Had mild success with the V2 Particle, but was drilled too weak and kicked too late, many wrap tens. Then pulled out the Warrior. Absolutely kicked everything else in the rear! Ball acted as if there was no carrydown, was able to move in 5 boards from where I was with the Aggression and 7 from the V2 Particle, and turned the corner everytime. Still hung a couple of tens, but not like I was with the Aggression and V2 Particle. I was very surprised with this ball. I have never been a fan of Pearl balls( I dislike the Predator Sparkle and have only thrown about 4 shots with it in 2 months)but this ball is a definite winner. Tried it again yesterday, this time on 38' fresh 10-10 house pattern, and the ball performed just had it did the day before. Very consistent ball, hard hitting, pretty forgiving.
