The new Honey Badger Urethane is designed for shorter oil patterns, short sport patterns and can also be used on house conditions where over/under is the tendency.  The Honey Badger Urethane will allow you to move inside compared to previous offerings in urethane lines.  Traditionally, straight up the boards may have been the only option available and ball shape was limited to maximize pin carry potential.  What has impressed me the most is that I was able to play straight up the boards and as the lanes transitioned a bit, I was able to move inside and see some shape down lane with the core design the HBU uses.  The HBU definitely has a space in the bag for shorter patterns.  If you haven't jumped into urethane or are looking for a urethane "look and feel" with some extra features you'll be happy with this one.  Be sure to try out a Honey Badger Urethane today!

Great Ball, I can't get over this Urethane ball.
Wow...for a Urethane, this should be in your bag! I was VERY happy when I had it drilled and got a chance to throw it. I had a couple "other" urethane balls from a couple other companies, this one is the best in my hand and on the lanes. It flares maybe 3-4". I'm really happy with it!
