COMMENTS
I was very impressed with the reaction of the Alien Abduction! The ease through the front and picked up nice in the midlane without overreacting when it read the friction. A very strong control ball that won't get you in trouble with misreading the lanes. I could keep the ball inside and still finish through the pins or open up the angle and get it to the friction for a very nice strong arc at the breakpoint! This is a really nice ball from Elite and I understand it's made at the 900 Global plant! It has a similar reaction to the AMF Clutch line, which I really loved!! Just my $.02, Bruce

Likes: Great looking ball, very clean through the fronts with a great read of the midlane and nice strong arc breakpoint shape! Very controllable and easy to read this ball and it's smooth reaction!

Dislikes: None so far!

Being the first asymmetrical core in Elite's lineup, I was excited to drill the new Alien Abduction. With the dark blue cover and neon engraving, I was hoping this ball would roll as good as it looked.

I got exactly what I wished for. For an asymmetric core, this ball is extremely controllable. Oh, and did I mention it HOOKS? A few days after I drilled it I had a 14 bagger alternating between the pin up and pin down, all while playing in front of the ball return. These balls read the midlane insanely well, probably more than any ball I've ever thrown. The Abduction has phenomenal carry as well. It always keeps the pins low to the deck, allowing for those snapper tens and light mixers that everyone loves.

If you're looking for a strong, asymmetric ball that gives you a predictable reaction this is your piece. Elite has done nothing but impress me so far. This ball is just as good, if not better than any high performance ball you can find on the market today.
