COMMENTS


Likes:  This ball is fantastic on the THS, is a power players dream as you can really stand on this ball and not get the overall over under you would see out of most pearls.  ball makes a deceptively smooth move and just digs and drives thru the pin deck, back to back to back 8 pins show this balls drive.  Ball is easy to throw is very receptive to hand position changes as well as speed changes.  Features that great lane 1 hit, people take notice when it hits the pocket  of the last 4 releases, Time bomb, pink panther, Blackfire and now the Boom R'ang  of those the blackfire and the this one stand out as my favorites, the BoomR'ang fits right in the mix, overall weaker then the 3 mentioned balls but firmly above the curve, I am sure a strong drilling would result in a very strong ball, my Blackfire which is similar drilled is indeed stronger overall, the BoomR'ang is longer and drives harder on the back  A cant miss combo


Dislikes: ball is a pearl and as such it doesnt like carry down

Likes: It's round and carries the corners very well.


Dislikes:  That some unknown BR person is going to PM me and judge this review just like he decided to do with a review I posted back in 2005 without being asked to.
