The Affinity uses the same cover as the Gb2 Phenom Pearl, but has a higher RG and lower diff core.  Easy length is no problem for the Affinity.  It goes down the lane slightly longer than the Phenom Pearl, and it has a more angular change of direction with excellent hitting power. Bowlers who fight early hook would find this ball to be a good match up. I can pipe this ball up the outside and have a good time watching it destroy the pocket for all 3 games on normal league conditions. I’ve seen some high rev guys make this ball curve quite a bit. Definitely an excellent value in the mid-price range.
