If you could use only one ball what would it be?

I guess I'm one of the few people not overly impressed with the Hy-Road. I know it fits a lot people's games, but the one I threw.....I immediately wanted to change the surface.

If I were planning a one ball arsenal, the ball I'd be using would be a Gamebreaker.

What about the ball motion made you want to change the surface?

On the condition that I threw it on, it skidded further than I would have liked, and got into the roll phase later than I liked. I guess it's just a matter of preference.

My teammate in another league uses his, regularly and scores well with it. He is a medium speed stroker.

Mine did that too until I re drilled it with a double thumb (65x4"x30 is my friend).  Wouldn't surprise me if next the USBC takes away motion holes as they really hate low revers.
