Some f you would be thinking that this ball is gonna be real jerky from reading the spec... Well its not at all, this ball is very predictable. I have alot of hand in it so it is perfect for my release. I drilld mine and put the pin just above my 2 middle fingers and kicked it off of the cg about 2 inches or so. It has close to a 1\4oz finger and a 1\4 side in this ball. I went in thinking this could possible have to much snap without a weight hole in it. Well I brought all my elite balls out and tested them for the first time... Compared to the black ball, this ball goes a couple feet longer before it hooks and and is a nice predictable hook at that. I feel like the spec could lead you on into thinking that this is just going to be a skid snap bowling ball.. Dont let it fool you because it is so not true.I think this is due to the smooth solid coverstock on it. If it was more of a pearl then it might be snappy but the predictable roll with have everyone watching!
I would recommend this ball to all bowlers simply because this ball will work on the toughest conditions providing you predictable hook along with great hitting power. I cant however say th ball hits hard. That doesnt mean however it doesnt carry! This mixes the pins up so so well. If you hit light with this ball then you are striking no matter what. I cant explain exactly what I am trying to say but you get the idea. This ball just carries everything without all the flush hits!!!
I would rate this ball at least a 9.5 because this is such a compliment to all the other balls in this line! The only reason I wouldnt rate this a 10 is because some bowlers wont be able to use this ball on a slick condition but then again, I didnt change the surface and it came polished... I could be very wrong after you change the surface. I havent got to use this ball on a flat condition but I feel it will be perfect in every way.
Guys if you have never tried an elite ball then it is time. If you want you can look me up and I will be glad to let you try mine...:smile) I would also guarantee this ball to ever who buys it because hey if I know they dont like it I will throw it myself... Elite is the best company in bowling, and just give them a little time and you will see. Perfomance it what sells and Elite bowling balls major in that catagory!!!!! Go ELITE! John Davis
