  • SO, THIS IS BOWLING?
 Well, after some strange plot twists this year, things have finally gotten back to "normal".

 The new Kegel machine got here, and suddenly the oil has returned, and now I can throw something besides plastic and polished pearl urethane.

 Enter the ECHO. AGAIN.

 Frankly speaking, this ball has been nothing short of amazing. Drilled with a simple pin-up "5 X 4" drilling, I have been able to, with surface changes, use this ball on everything except the extreme dry we have had here, and the extreme oil I found at first shift at one tournament this year.

 I've left it at box finish for the first half of the year, but decided to change that, so I went with a 1000ab, 2000ab finish on it, and man, did that ever make a difference. It is a bit earlier now, and is much "rollier", while still retaining a great continuation characteristic it seems to have had ever since I first drilled it up.


 We have all had those balls in our bag. You know, the ones that just seem to work, the ones that "get us out of trouble" and the ones that "just seem to work every time" type balls. This, for me, is one of those type balls. Just solid and dependable, every time I use it.

 Honestly, I can't remember shooting a sub 600 set with this ball when I've been able to throw reactives, and shot 662 with it last set. I'll take a 220 average anytime, and it is quite easily possible with this piece.

Yep, this ball is really good: versatile with various surfaces and good hitting and carry power with all of them.

Right now there's a 3 day sale June 1 - 3, for this ball at $89.99 delivered, an excellent bargain.

(FYI I am not a staffer; I don't get any free balls or anything else for posting such. I just think this is a great deal on a great ball.)
