Comments:

The Protocol is clean through the front and reads the end of the pattern very well.  The ball needs a higher volume of oil to stay right.  I was able to move left later in the set once the oil had migrated in and send it right.  It made the corner with ease and crushed the pins.

Dislikes:  The ball out of the box was a little snappy the last 5 feet before the head pin.  I took the polish off with a 2000 abralon pad.  This calmed it down. 

Great ball!

I was surprised on how strong this ball really is. For a Higher RG ball the Protocol still reads the midlane well and shines on the back end. You will definitely need some oil for this ball, but tells you when to put it away. If you are looking for a strong solid piece with a booming backend and continuation through the pin deck then look no further.

Length: 41 ft USBC/39 ft House

Volume: medium/heavy

Drill:  5 pin to PAP x 4 CG to PAP, Pin below the fingers

BOWLER STYLE:  Rev rate:  440; Ball Speed:  18

I really liked this ball on the house shot.  It is very similar to the War Eagle.  I polished my War Eagle and got a few more boards out of it.  The Protocol comes polished and is a few boards weaker for me.  I really like the area on the house pattern and the forgiveness with great carry.  I would like to try to change the surface w/o polish but the out of box surface makes this the benchmark ball for my arsenal.

The Protocol looks great on the lane and off! As advertised, No More Guess Work. This ball is sure to please every style of bowler. One of the most versatile balls released by 900 Global. If you want a ball that you can play any line with, this is it. I found the Protocol to be a great ball on multiple shots and lines to the pocket. Strong throughout the lane. I do not have a huge hand in the ball and I was able to get the ball back from areas I have never been able to. Easily gives you more mistake room and makes shots seem bigger than they are. The ball is surface change friendly. Overall, it has a skid/snap type reaction. Another great ball with the ever popular S70 cover!

COMMENTS
I drilled a Network and really loved what I was seeing with it. I wanted something similar to it so I decided on the Protocol, because of the same shaped core with slightly higher RG and lower Diff. I drilled the Protocol the same as the Network and it's slightly under the Network with it's polished solid cover and similar core. I was able to play more right than the Network, but as I had to move deeper the Protocol was leaving corner pins. I moved deeper and switched to the Network, which took the corner pins out.

Likes:Very clean and smooth rolling ball that corners with a strong arc move. Great compliment to the Network!

Dislikes:None so far!
