There are been a variety of balls that have been working. Need a little more information on you to give you a better idea on what will work. Speed, PAP, revs....

If anyone out there is worried about the scores being too high, try duckpin!!

You will need something with some surface.  I would take something with a 4 to 4.5 pin to PAP and have the surface around 500-1000.  You seem to be speed dominate so go with a big hooker to start on the fresh and migrate downward in ball strength as it breaks down.If you are really accurate, start playing right up second arrow.  Right of that is o.b and inside will not hold.  But if you are pretty accurate, up the track to start and then migrate left with weaker stuff once they start hooking.

I used a darkstar drilled 4 1\2 by 5 at 2000...... shot 1866 with a 555 team event. I had a lot of room if I didn't pull it. Had trouble with timing all weekend

Words of advise. Limiting your self to just one company is never smart. Get proven balls out on the market. Global, Storm inc, Ebonite international, er what ever it may be.

I have a slow speed at 11-12 mph don't know what my revs is but i'm a stroker. i currently have the SIEGE pin down no weight hole, 3.5 pin down with weight hole, 2.5 pin above fingers. they are pretty much stacked. here's my video if anyone cares to see.

Not sure if you can recommend or not this year. I just got back and did not light it up. I tried to use surface in team event and the back ends were so strong I ended up with pearls and my stronger pearl would not stay on the right side of the head pin. Then I talk to some other Dallas area bowlers today before we left and they complained they could not get the ball to hook. Not sure if it is what lanes you are on or how much hand, but I am not a cranker and in all three events had no trouble getting the ball to hook. I did have an out of bounds, but that is a flat pattern and no surprise. I think I carried more brooklyn strikes than pocket or sure seemed that way. All I can say is be open minded and good luck.
