I've owned this ball for about a month and I wanted to get it right before I reviewed it.
My goal in buying this ball was to replace a now deceased sledgehammer that had been very very good to me! The sledge was drilled max flare control. Pin 3 3/8 from PAP, Mass Bias on the VAL, weighthole on the pap. The sledgehammer covered a lot of boards smoothly and was a great medium condition tournament ball. Thanks Mo Pinel for the mucho dinero$$$$!
I drilled the Reactive 4D the same except I wanted a little more hit, therefore I drilled a weighthole 6 3/4 from my pap initially. This resulted in more top and 3/2 ratio of top weight to side weight. This setup covered a lot more boards and had a very hard angular move to the pocket. Great, but I have other balls for this already.
I plugged the balance hole, and reput on the PAP. Ending side now 1/2, bottom weight 1/2 oz, and 0 finger.
This ball is now so smooooottttthhhhhh!
and predictable at the breakpoint with maybe a couple of more boards of backend due to the neoflex coverstock!
I find this ball very clean thru the fronts!! Sir Revs a lot, remember there are three 4D's. A heavy load particle called the 4D HPT( renowned for starting too early in the heads), a 4D tour a lighter load particle, and this clean shiny blue reactive! are you sure you have the reactive??.
Remember Hammerheads, these balls can be tweaked for high testorone bowling and carrydown by having a 3/2 top to side ratio( see drilling section in forum) or it can be toned down for control just by lowering your top!
PS This control drilling I think is
just as nice as a light load particle for midlane hook without all the cover maintenance!
I feel another win coming on!
