This ball works very well.The house that I use it in oils down 40 to 42 feet. It reads the mid lanes very well. I roll the ball from 15 out to about 8 and get great reaction .

Really like the way this ball gets thru the heads and charges hard on the backend.  Doesn't knife, just comes hard and continuous.....the MoRich signature motion.  Same with my Awesome Hook.  Overall, I think this ball fills several gaps depending on layout/surface prep.  9 out of 10

had mine drilled with the Standard Asymmetrical Strong Arc drilling. used it in my league and the lanes were unusually oily, a lot of people could not get stuff to react like normal until the second game when they broke down. i throw medium speed with a good amount of revs, the ball is very strong and really picks up on the back end. it seems like the ball is going to skid to far but then it picks up about 30ft down lane and just takes out everything in its path. i was thinking about going with the Asymmetrical Flip drilling for more snap on the back end but i am glad that i didnt casue it really takes off in the back end. my father who is on my team said to me "wow u have never had a ball that hits as hard as this one, it sounds like you broke pins". so far i only used it for 3 games; 235, 275, 214 = 724 and i like what i see with this ball.

Cons:

you definitely need oil for this ball, i was constantly moving to stay in the oil because of how strong the ball is.
the ball is extremely ugly, it is a good thing i dont buy stuff just on looks cause i would not own this one if i did

Drilled Asymmetrical flip.  OOB cover.

This ball is great on fresh house shots.  despite the length drilling the ball revs early and makes a  strong, but controllable move to the pocket.  

I really like the early and continuous roll this ball delivers.  Mine is very versatile.  It rolls and hits hard in the oil, from a direct line or inside angle and on drier conditions the ball reacts very strongly and covers more boards without burning up.

This is my first MoRich ball and I'm very happy with the results.

I had the ball drilled for oil carry down.  My pin is above my ring finger and my mass bias is 4 to 5 inches away from my thumb.  I bowl in two different houses one being synthetic (average 218) and the other being wood (average 223).  My first night on the synthetic lanes I bowled 255, 265, 264 for a 784.  The next night I bowled league on the wood lanes and bowled 279, 247, 235 for a 761. I normally have no problem getting a ball to roll-out, but with the MoRich equipment it stays strong on the back-ends. This is my second MoRich ball and I am equally impressed with both.

I purchased my AR about 3 months ago and primarily used my Awesome Flip for my house shot. This past month the shot changed and started using my AR for all three games. My AR specs are: 16 lb, 3 inch pin, 2.8 tw, stacked. I have it drilled for high track-sharp break point. The cg is slightly kicked in about 7 o clock, the fingers are drilled left of pin, next to the pin, with a balance hole. I shot games of 265, 266, 265, for a 796 series. Missed my 800 because I let the ball get away from me in the 6th frame of the second game. The following my scores were 256,267, 222, for a 745 series. I saved the best for last. On 3/23/07 I shot a perfect 300 in the third game. I shot 269, 192, 300, for a series total 761. This ball is truly AWESOME and easy to read.

Ball: PIN 5 1/4 from PAP under the bridge 2 inches above midline, MB 4 3/4 from PAP 2.5 inches right of thumb. I left the surface at OOB.

Lane Conditions: various. Used on my house pattern, on the VIPER pattern and at the Ohio State Bowling Tournament.

HOOK:
Heavy: Even with the OOB compound finish the Revs hooks....ALOT. It easily fills the bill as an oiler.....adjusting the surface some would make this ball a beast on oil.

Medium: As long as there is enough oil to carry the ball down the lane the REVS takes over in the midlane and doesn't stop until all 10 pins are down.

Light: FORGET IT!

TOTAL HOOK:
I have not thrown an Awesome HOOK....I have seen it thrown and the REVS is not too far behind it. I see it playable on most med/heavy-heavy patterns, but OOB it is going to need some friction to turn over.

CONTROL:
FOR ME...the only thing I can control with this ball is placing it in my hand. When it comes to the lanes...get it close to your target and have fun watching it work.

EXPECTED REACTION:
I have had a few balls drilled like this one in the past....the RULE GP2, the XCEPTION 5.0 to name a couple. The REVS is stronger off of the break than either of them were. I was suprised at how quickly it got into a roll even on a fresh pattern...but I was even more suprised at how much energy it retained down the lane.

Strengths:
THE ENGINE BABY!!! The Vanguard core...in any of its "mutations" is pretty sweet. An employee of mine stated how it REVS through the midlane and then looks like it stops doing anything then it just REVS again making its turn into the pocket. The coverstock is strong even with the compound....so med/heavy- heavy patterns shouldn't be an issue.

Weaknesses:
The REVS looks bad when there is lack of sufficient oil to carry it down the lane. I think a good coat of polish would do the trick to ease that issue....but it is so good OOB why change it!?

COMMENTS:
I have not thrown a MoRich ball since the Hercules. The Vanguard Core is so much stronger than the old stuff was. The HIT is a step up from anything I have seen from Mo's older equipment. The overall movment of the REVS makes me wonder what the FLIP does.......because I see alot of FLIP out of the REVS. HEAVY ROLL....STRONG BACKEND reaction. The Awesome REVS is a winner!

Pin next to and above ring, CG in grip center, MB approx 50 degrees below and right of thumb.

House #1: Old but well maintained wood w/guardian in the front, Shark pattern in sanctioned PBA league, 4 games moving 1 pair to the right each time.

I liked my Awesome Hook so much at 1000 abralon as a ball for longer mediums that I needed a true oiler, so I drilled this up the same way and took it to 500 abralon (essentially reversing their box cover preps, but the Revs is inherently stronger). Even with the coarser cover, the Revs was still much more snappy in the back than the Hook. This ball rolled very heavy and strong the whole way. My scores weren't great but that was because I didn't throw good shots, not because the ball is bad or didn't match up.

**update** House #2: AMF synthetics, non-sanctioned sport shot, 4 different lengths, I shot on the longest (51') and the two shortest (unknown length). I chewed up the 51' like it wasn't even there, pretty much straight up 7 and carry was fine. Put it away on the shortest shot in favor of my Vapor Zone, and then brought it back out on the other one where I was going roughly 18 - 12 for most of the game. This ball has a devastating midlane and backend read on these lanes, I mean it was just INSANE the reaction I was getting. This is easily my favorite piece for heavy oil since the Slate Blue Quantum (and it's been a LONG time since that one came out).

If you're looking for a ball for heavy oil that still has some movement in the back, this would be a very good choice. If you want a smooth, urethane-type reaction, the Awesome Hook would be a better choice. I'm sure at it's box finish  that it makes a very fine ball on heavier mediums too.

Got the Awesome Revs a couple months ago, and decided to put a review up.  Haven't had any fantastic scores with it, but in all fairness, I've used this ball on tough or less than ideal conditions for what it's designed for.  Used it on the Cheetah pattern at a PBA regional and had decent success with it, probably the best ball I used playing the outside and bumping it off the dry near the gutter.  Other than that just used it on a THS and it's a little strong for that as it takes off on the excessive dry on the outside.  Hits very hard, and has a nice smooth roll, no jerk at the breakpoint.  Probably a little stronger than the Total Annihilation I had, and a great MoRich release.  I'm basically a Storm guy, but if I had to pick a second company to go with would be Roto Grip or MoRich.

I got this ball about a month ago and I am very impressed. I am a Tweener (15-16mph off my hand and good rev rate) and my PAP is 4 7/8 over 1 up. Ball is layed out with the pin 4" from the PAP well above the ring finger. Not sure how far the mass bias is but it is between the track and VAL.

My first experience with it I was impressed with the powerful backend move, but the carry was a little bit spotty. Then I got the box finish sanded to 4000 grit. What a difference! This ball cuts through oil beautifully, then when it hits the dry still makes a powerful, angular move toward the pocket. It isn't a true heavy oil ball (with this surface) but still grips enough in the oil to jump off the dry. It also takes carrydown very well. I did lose a little bit of backend with the surface change, but it became more controllable and more tolerant of oil. Also, the carry improved astronomically. I am by no means a power player but this thing has me flinging messengers across the deck at least once a game. Get this ball for Medium-Heavy oil and if you have trouble, play with the surface. It will be well worth it.

Ive had this ball for about a month now....didnt like the OOB finish. I gave it a 2000 grit shine. This thing came to life with much length, angularity, and carry. Rolls very nice as well. It doesnt read the mids as well with the surface change, but reads the backends extremely well. Drilling layout: Pin is above the rf placed slightly to the right, CG is in the palm area kicked a little to the right. Overall in my opinion it`s not a benchmark ball, but can be very affective on certain patterns. Of course the THS is included, Cheetah and maybe Scorpion...Very controllable, tweeners should love this ball.

I got this ball about 2 months ago to combat some heavier oil conditions and to replace my angular one which I was disappointed with.  The ball is set up for an overall roll with the pin below my ring finger and the CG at a 45 degree angle down and to the right.  It also has a fairly large balance hole to bring it back to legality.

I first threw this ball on the shark pattern in my PBA experience league in which the ball read the lane pretty well and allowed me to play up 8 and have a nice, consistent backend reaction. I was impressed with the way the ball read the lane without giving me a spotty reaction when it hit the soup.  

On a THS, this ball gives me about 10 boards to hit when playing deep and finishes very hard. I have left very few 10 pins and only a couple 7's.  

Overall, I am glad I made the $100 investment and I am planning on using this as my first ball out the bag for my fall league and my regional PBA tournaments.

I purchased my AR this past summer before my trip to Reno for the National tournament.  I was looking for a ball that would be able to handle the higher volumes of oil and slicker lane surfaces, while still having a controllable backend reaction.  After consulting with Fred at MoRich, I decided on a 4.5" pin to PAP distance, a 4.25" MB to PAP distance with the pin 1.75" above my midline.  This put the pin just under my ring finger and the mass bias about 2/3 the distance from my thumb towards my VAL.  A small weight hole was placed on my VAL, 1.5" above my PAP to make the ball statically legal.  A photo of the ball and my stats are in my profile.

I took the ball out with the box surface and found that on the scorpion pattern (closest we had locally to the Nationals pattern), it just didn't have enough surface to start up in the midlane.  I had sort of expected this (as the ball comes with a compound finish) and had been advised about this from Fred at MoRich.  I took the ball back to the shop and hit it with a 1000 grit Abralon pad.  WOW did it make all the difference in the world!  The ball came alive and was almost too much ball on the pattern.  You could see the ball starting to rev up in the midlane and once it hit the end of the pattern, it hit fully stride.  Tons of revs (appears to actually increase in revs as it goes down the lane), but not a real "jerky" move off the end of the pattern.  More on a strong arc completely through the deck with lots of power at the pins.  

I had a decent look with the Revs during the fresh oil team event at Reno.  Plenty of ball and great hit when I was able to direct it towards the pocket.  Since then, I have thrown the Revs for all of the longer oil patterns during my PBA Experience league (both this summer and now our fall league).  This is simply my go-to ball for oil.  I just can't say enough good things about this ball.  

The the proper layout and surface, I think this ball can fit anywhere from mediums all the way up to the floods.  Very strong, fast revving core in this one.  Strong on the backend, but still easy to control.  It has replaced my Fury as my favorite oil ball.

Got this ball at Capri Lanes in Dayton. Put the pin about 3 5/8 from PAP and MB to the right of the thumb. I had trouble with this ball originally, unable to get it to roll the way I wanted. Now its the first ball to come out of my bag. A very versatile ball. Have used on heavy and on dry by getting extreme inside (30th board) and swinging over 23. Hits like a truck. One of my best purchases.
