Length - 8/10
Back End - 4/10
Overall Hook - 3/10
Midlane Read - 4/10
Breakpoint Shape - Lots of flare, but not a ton of hook. Smooth turn to the pocket
Carry - The ball may be made out of plastic, but the core produces a lot of flare, and it helps the ball to drive through the pins when it hits.
Likes - Great for dry lanes, it gives another option below urathane
Dislikes - Ball is still made out of plastic, so transition can cause the ball to skid out
Other - Ball is designed for a specific purpose. Dry lanes. This is my go to ball game 6 of men's travel league at the driest houses in Houston. If you bowl a condition with dry lanes, give this ball a try. Plastic that hooks is a great concept in my opinion.
