Ball Tested Drill Specs
in to PAP:5 1/4"x 4 1/4",Pin above ring finger.
Lanes Tested On:All types of synthetics & wood.
The GT1-The cover and core combination creates more friction than the SX1
and the TX1 but less than the TR2.
The cover along with the low RG Gear Drive core gives the GT1 more hook
throughout the entire lane than the SX1 & TX1 but less than the TR2.
I saw a very smooth rolling reaction from start to finish from the GT1.
The ball starts up earlier than the SX1 & TX1 with better mid-lane bite.
The GT1 clears the heads easy but turns up the revs at the mids but,makes
a very strong move off the back end,almost a skid snap.I found very minimal
over-under on most house shots.Also the GT1 plays great when there is some
On the THS:The GT1 allowed me to open up and play the lane with a larger
swing area.On the oilier house shots the GT1 allowed me to square up a little
more to the right.Playing this area gave me great reaction off the breakpoint,
and a very nice roll to the pocket with good pin carry.
On very dry house shots:The GT1 is way too strong for me on this shot,
I would use the SX1 on this shot.
On PBA Experience patterns and other sport patterns.
The GT1 worked best for me on the Cheetah pattern it allowed me to play the
oil line without a over reaction on the back of the pattern.
On the Scorpion pattern the GT1 worked well I could move inside a little
and use the core/cover combo to create the area I needed.
On the other PBA-X pattrens,Shark Chameleon,Viper.The GT1 worked for me but
the cover needed to be adjusted for me to play the patterns as I needed.
The only pattern that I had trouble with was the Shark pattern.Way too long
for me to get a good reaction.
Overall:This ball is a great first out of the bag ball on most house shots.
In my opinion the key for the GT1 is find the right drilling and cover
adjustment.The GT1 is a very versatile and should fit most styles.
