Bank Pearl
« on: December 31, 1969, 06:00:00 PM »
Coverstock: S74 Reactive Pearl 
Color: Purple/Gold Pearl 
Finish: Polished 
Core Type: Asymmetric 
RG: 16#-2.465, 15#-2.481, 14#-2.506 
RG: Diff 16#-0.055, 15#-0.054, 14#-0.051 
Description: Bank Pearl will add a strong skid flip motion to our 900 Global performance line for this season. The S74 pearl formula on this ball has never been used in the Global line up. It’s wrapped around our now famous SRC (self righting core) with a strong RG and high flare making this pearl strong in oil. This combo allows for maximum continuation down lane.

 ball does as advertised

i drilled up 2  bank pearls, one with pin over ring and mb kicked out about an inch, left in oob, ball goes long and makes a hard strong continious backend,

second ball i decided to experiment a bit, decided to try a rico drill with this ball, not sure what i would get with the SRC core, all i can say is WOW, this ball is tottaly different then the first ball, comes of the hand in a heavy roll just reads the lane, with great carry and is the most forgiving ball ive ever thrown,you can tug it or send it wide it just finds the pocket,

id reckomend a must try for anybody try rico on this ball and se for yourself what the SRC core can do,

ball was great drilled pin over, but is off the charts good drilled rico

as you can tell im no expert at writeing a review, just i felt the need to get the word out about this ball and the chg it made going rico with it

Likes: Control and predictability. I drilled this ball 4.5x60x30 with a p3 weight hole. At out of box i loved the roll and continuation of this ball through the pin deck. However it did not allow me much miss room. After trying it on two different synthetic surfaces and one wood center i decided to tweak the cover a little bit. I hit the ball with a 2k pad and followed it up with a 4k pad. Boy did it wake this bad boy up!! It still had the great control,predictability and continuation as before but now allows me some "wiggle room" Comparing it to my  Profit it is a couple boards more hook overall and not as angular off the spot. Compared to my Raw Profit it is a few boards less and again less angular. What else can i say but another great piece from the boys in San Antonio.

This is the best pearl ball i have thrown. this ball should be in top 5 sales if only everyone knew how good it was. I laid out my ball with a 45 x 4 x 70 layout and i kept it at its oob surface at 2000 polished. I bowl in a scratch league which switches kegel patterns evry six weeks. we are currently bowling on kegels route 66. this ball stores energy and has a great reaction on the back end. i bowl 16mph, 270 revs, 14 tils and 60 axis rotation and with my below ave speed and revs, this ball give me the back end i need or oilier conditoins.

i posted 2 videos on youtube. one is on kegels dead mans curve 43ft, and a 40ft house shot, the second video in on route 66. tip and avice are welcome i am always looking to learn. thanks.

COMMENTS
 This ball was a very suprising ball to me. I expected a ball that would pick up earlier and hook a ton. Most high end balls pearl balls usually pick up way to early and overreact. The ball was clean in the front and hooked very strong and did it every time. The bad shots I did where all me. I shot 667 out of the box with a ton of spares I missed. The carry and hit of this ball was excellent. Kept pins low and sent messangers everywhere.

COMMENTS

 

What I was looking for with  my Bank Pearl, was a ball with good length an a lot of backend on longer and heavier patterns to compliment my original Bank. What I got was just that! The ball clears the heads with ease, starts revving up in the middlane quite a lot and breaks with a strong but controlled arc to the pocket. Continuation through the pins is phenomenal due to the SRC core. None of my other balls hit as hard as my Banks! 



Likes:Good midlane read with a lot of Backend, overal very strong, shelf appeal




Dislikes: Carrydown (This is wehre my original Bank comes into play!)
