15lb ball with 2-3" pin.  I set this one up for oil.  Drilled it over the label with the pin at 3 o'clock, for an early roll.  I have medium speed, high track and above average revs.  As with all my equipment, I end up polishing it.  This one ended up shined, but was still fairly aggressive due to the particle coverstock.  This ball turned out to be one of the best mid-lane read balls I have ever owned.  

Positives:
*Good mid-lane and strong arcing continuous backend
*Always seemed to roll well, no matter how poorly I released it
*Had great luck with carry
*Able to play deep (over 20 to 25 out to 10) with this ball and no problems w/ roll out.

Negatives:
*Needed some head oil to get the ball down the lane
*Hard to adjust the surface (due to brunswick particles)
*Bridge between fingers cracked out after 6 months

Overall I'd rate this ball as a 7 out of 10 due to overall performance and carry
