Quick update- We drilled this for my girlfriend last week and she has thrown it 6 games total now and so far this ball just does not quit! Very surprised so far with the way the ball gives her some more room to play and really reads the lane quite well.
She doesn't throw the most hand in the world but this ball really has some get up and go for this price point. The house we bowl on on Wed. has a pretty good shot which I would consider a beefier and longer house shot (about 39 feet), I usually get my Defiant back every shot with a full flare of oil back on it from the first ball of the night to the last. I'm hoping next week I can go in and actually get tape measures and have some video of her bowing with it.
Overall, is this going to take over the world? No, but for the situation I was in wanting to get my girl a good ball with some crazy colors she would want (she has a pink panther, pink shoes and now a pink bag, so this fits in)this ball being a performance ball is a huge bonus. At 2k surface, this ball reads, reacts and hits like a truck for her, last night on a good higher volume oil pattern she shot 626 with it, her first 6 of the year with a 171 average.
