Bowler Information:
Track diameter is 10.25.
PAP is measured at 5.5 over and 0 up/down.
Average ball speed (foul line to head pin) is 17 mph.
Axis rotation is typically 45 degrees
Initial rev rate is typically 350 rpm


I've drilled two Awesome Flips for myself; after drilling and rolling the first I knew there was no way I could stop at only one. The layout on my first Awesome Flip is 4.5"x4.0", 3.25"up with a 13/16" weight hole 2.5" deep 3.75" straight over on the centerline. This layout was used because I have a Shock & Awe with the same layout and I wanted to get a valid comparison between the two balls. The second AF layout is 5.375"x2.375", 1.5" up with no x-hole (and again after laying out and rolling the second AF I can already see another in my future, yes I like the ball that much).

I've had the opportunity to roll both balls on wood and synthetic lanes conditioned with both typical house and sport compliant conditions.

First, I have to admit I was completely amazed when I compared the first AF to my Shock & Awe with the same layout. While that Shock & Awe is not the flippiest that I have it is indeed very strong on the back-end, the Awesome Flip made it look a little lazy. But, what was really amazing is that even though the Awesome Flip is very strong on the back-end it is still very predictable and controllable. When I rolled both balls with the covers prepped the same I saw extra length with similar total hook from the Awesome Flip but more of that hook was on the back-end of the lane. On the house pattern I needed to make sure I was playing in and giving the first Awesome Flip alot of room to turn the corner. On the sport conditions the ball also played better in simply because the entry angle was too strong from out. The second Awesome Flip has a layout which provides me with a very smooth rolling pattern and excellent energy conservation without a sharp move at the breakpoint. This ball revs very fast and has a very smooth move to the pocket with amazing continuation through the pins. I also have this layout on other balls and feel I can attack the lanes from many different angles with success. The second Awesome Flip worked well from both inside and further out on both the typical house and sport compliant patterns.

Now, the only thing I have to do is decide how I'll drill a third Awesome Flip.....

Do you think I'll be able to stop at three???

For the last 3 or 4 weeks, I have encountered some highly mushy backends on the left side from the very start of league.  Nothing I had was able to cut through it until the 3rd game.  1st two games I was averaging 190 or so and the 3rd game I have been averaging 248 just to salvage decent sets.  Well, I got my AF drilled a few hours before league this past week.  Slight variation of Super Sym drilling.  All I could say was HOLY S*!T.  This ball chewed through the mush like it was a joke.  240-256-267 = 763.  Ball never exhibited ANY signs of jumping early the whole night.  Cleared the heads fantastic and charged off the spot like a homeless bum diving after the last biscuit.  I use MoRich exclusively and I was truly impressed with a ball that actually DOES WHAT IT SAYS IT DOES!!!!  Mo is light years ahead of the pack.  Great job on this one guys.

Awesome is exactly what it is. Got three high sets of 631/643/693 already with this gem. This is the best MoRich ball so far ever made, high track break point drilling (www.morichbowling.com) with this drilling the flip gets down the lane dang good before well it FLIPS OUT and hits and carries very well. Iv'e played in 3 different house and the ball performs very well even in the mush conditions and is AWESOME on the medieum conditions, never tried it on heavy oil but thats what the Total Shock and Awe is for and the two make a murderous combo. The recovery is sick.....ball recovered from the one board on the right side while standing five on the left....Yea it flipped alright Holy Ginobli it flipped. However like with any ball you must keep is clean and beware of the hitting power because it can plow through the hole so strongly that you can leave stone pins and even splits so be mindful of where it flips, cause when it does.........Holy Ginobli

In short if you wanna FLIP off the competition....get an Awesome Flip its an awesome ball

Box specs: 15.3lbs
                     2-3" pin
                     2.2 oz. top

Drilled: Pin approx. 1" up and 1" right of ring, cg stacked below, mb at around 45 degrees, box finish.

In a word, this ball is sick! I picked this one up because I've loved my other two Mo offerings (Seek & Destroy and Total Shock & Awe). Well, count this one as 3 for 3. This ball will do just about anything you want it to do, within reason. Do you want to stand inside and swing the lane? As long as you've got some dry to grab onto, sit back and wait for this baby to put the blinker on and come roaring toward the pocket. Do you want to go up the boards? No problem. Get this beauty rolling and watch as the strong backend allows you to snap corner pins out like never before. This ball truly can do it all, and it looks nice doing so.

I compared this one next to the two balls that I figured would go on either side of it in my arsenal, The One (medium-heavy) and the Action (medium-benchmark). It goes longer than both and delivers the sharpest backend of the three. It will handle less oil than both, at least that's the way that the box finish will render things, but that's just fine. If you have dry, this ball will recover from just about anywhere. The only caveat is that the sharp angle can cause some ugly leaves. If you get slow, you're most likely going to pay.

Overall feelings:

Hook: 9.5 out of 10--If you like to hook the ball, you'll love this one

Recovery: 10 out of 10--That's what this ball is all about

Midlane: 6 out of 10--This ball really doesn't read the mids at all; it blows right through and saves its juice for the backend.

Hit: 10 out of 10--Typical Mo; it hits hard and drives straight and true through the deck.

Appearance: 9 out of 10--Are you man enough to throw pinkish purple?

Overall: 9.5 out of 10--Just a very good all around ball from Mo; what a surprise?

PAP. 3 over 0 up
tilt 24 degrees
rotation 40 degrees
speed 18-21 mph
rev rate 425


I drilled this ball for basic condition,I layed this out with 3.5 X 4.25 X 2 above the midline. I am suprise that this ball has only 4 reviews on it so far because this piece is flat out sick. I never had a ball that read the lane this way and still went sideways on the back. the AF is one of the pearlize balls that hit the market in a long time. this ball can handle many types of condition just with changing the surface or the layout. Guys go out and get yourself one of these and make sure you take it to the right "CUT MAN".

4x4 drilling
15#
pin under ring finger

THS stood 15 threw straight up effortlessly with a bit of speed. Ball has a smooth transition down the lane with a smooth arc right to the hole. Just sick. First night with the ball (4 game block) 700/941. Normal avg for me 215 or so.  Have left a few crushing 9 pins and a few 10 pins. If I over rev'd just a bit 4-9. Other than that this ball is sick.

To see the ball in action (http://www.playdromelanes.com/test/) click the first and third movies. Our lane guy loves playing with his digital camera.

I absolutely love this ball. I am a tweener with 15.3 mph ball speed. Ball is drilled 3 3/8 x 4 1/2. Pin right above fingers. Awesome in medium-medium heavy oil. Really great when you move inside and play a line that most struggle with. The guy who drills my balls has the same specs as I do have. I picked up his awesome flip threw 2 practice shots and had to have it. Went out and shot 745 series the 1st time I touched the ball. The ball literally blows the pins away. As long as you don't let the speed drop you don't get in trouble.

When it makes the move to the pocket it really FLIPS!

Pin is a half inch under the ring slightly to the right.....CG is centered at the palm. I have a balance hole as well 5 inches from my CG to the right...pretty much a basic house drill..with some length. First let me say that its a good ball to have, rolls very nice, above average carry. The Awesome Flip is  very shot specific. I would only recommend this ball on shorter patterns. It will give good length no matter what the drill layout is....The coverstock will back me up... In saying that...there will be some situations where you can use this ball and be very affective. Im just saying that in my opinion its not a ball for game one. When the heads are gone this can be the choice to go to. Reads broken down heads as well as any ball ive thrown. A very nice addition to your med. oil ball. I will update this ball in about 2 months into the fall season....Im gonna get a good track on it and really let you know whats going on........Earl

15lb 2oz, 3"pin, 2.7 top
drilling: 4 by 4 resulting in the pin being just above and to the right of the ring finger and mb just to the right of the thumb. Extra hole on val.

Mini Review: I have only thrown this ball for three games so I will update this review after I get more games on it. I tried a handful of shots going down and in which is not my "A" game. The results were pretty good. Then I tried swinging the ball. This is where the ball shines. It glides thru the mids then immediately takes off towards the pocket. If you get close to the pocket the results will be good. I was able to string the first 8 in game two of league play. Lots of pin action with this ball. It also seems to handle carrydown quite well. The ball is also very forgiving. When my shot was slightly off, the hit and carry was still amazing. This is probably the best ball I have matched up with in a while. I foresee some high series this winter. To some the ball up in one word, "Awesome."

THIS IS THE LAW OF THE BACKEND

SPECS: Pin is above my ring finger and and the mass bias is out only 1 inch to 1 and 1/2 inches. for PAP is about 5 inches out.

THS: 38 Feet buff to 40-42 feet, med oil in the middle and not much less everywhere else. the oil gets in volume as you move toward the ditch but not as much of a drop off as I have seen elsewhere.
Flip is as advertised on this pattern goes looonngg, and Flips at the end of the lane. I tried a variety of lines in the session moving left testing the balls ability to recover and it recovers incredibly well, I couldn't get left enough to get the ball to hang up the more oil Flip was in the longer it would go and the harder it would turn at the end of the lane. I started this process trowing 12th at the arrows and the break point was the gutter and it flow back to the pocket CRUNCH! pins gone, I moved left at two board incerments and moved the shot along with my feet finally finishing throwing the ball at about 19th at the arrows and 5 at the break point and it was the same result as the first ball.
 
MASTERS Tournament: I BOWLED LIKE GARBAGE THERE I ADMIT IT ARE YOU HAPPY!! Anyway at the Masters I had alot of room to move the ball gave me good area and freedom to make a mistake. I used Flip on the 2nd shift first day of the Masters I had out of Bounds at 10th board but other than that I could throw the ball anywhere I wanted and it would come back the problem was I didn't figure this out until the last game, I was trying to play to tight the hole day. I will do better next time!


Overall: This ball has alot of power under the hood as long as it has dry it will react for you, it reads the lanes very well and doesn't react to early or to late it is right on time. Ball is forgiving when you miss to the left or right, it makes up the difference it almost looks like you made the mistake on purpose! Ball hits and carries like a dream it doesn't leave many 9 pins at least not with the setup that I am using it just makes a quick change of direction it looks almost effortless. On the Heavy stuff the reaction is late and quick but still very effortless looking and very easy to predict. on med oil it is sooner and smoother but later than anything with a solid cover.

Great ball

MoRich caught my attention with this ball. Had it drilled with the pin below the fingers about an inch or two with the cg kicked way right and a balance hole.  I took the surface down to 320 then polished it.  Ball revs so hard in the midlane and still hits like a truck.  This has become the one ball I dont think that I could live without.  Every house and every pattern that I have seen, there is always a shot for this ball. Whether its the rail or the fifth arrow its so versatile.  MoRich gets my standing O!! Thanks to Burke for a great layout.

Pin above ring, 16-18mph, stroker.  First off, I love mo stuff~ This is definatly everything that the ball title portrays. Its awesome, and there is no question that it flips!  I have my highest game ever with this ball. This ball is very readable in the midlane and then woooww the aggressive moment to the pocket is remarkable!  The pins have no chance with this ball, just flips them right off, literally.  The carry is also great with this ball.  I would recommend this ball as well as any Morich ball to everyone!

Im a stroker, throw around 16-18mph on a THS.
I like the roll that I get much better with the flip.  Its recovers from anywhere and I have thrown it on various conditions with ease.  I dont know why there isnt more hype about the flip but is a great ball.    Another thing that I love about the flip is the carry, just amazing. Great JOB MO!
