I used the dual angle layout of 50deg X 3" X 40deg with a weight hole on the P2 location. This ball is a lot stronger down lane than I expected with about 3-4" of flare and 1/4" flare ring separation. I drilled this similar to my Profit and it's a great compliment to each other. This ball is fun to roll as you can send it to the drier part of the lane and it just looks to float back to the pocket. The hit is what sets this ball apart from a lot of lower priced balls on the market. If you don't want or have a lot of money to spend on a ball and you need something for medium to medium heavy this is a great choice! Another excellent ball out of San Antonio! Just my $.02, Bruce

COMMENTS



Likes: See attached picture for the ball layout.  The 2 houses I bowl in are notorious for putting little to no oil down.  My goal with this ball was to set it up to use what little oil was there and get it down the lane and not turn left.
 

Mission accompolished.  I emailed Global900 requestsing some help with a layout, and after a couple emails back and forth I had a good idea what to expect with this ball.  The suggestion of a pin to pap of over 5" seemed to do the trick

as i started the night 12 boards right of where I usually start and finished the night back where i would normaly start.

 

Ball glides down the lane, makes a nice arc to the pocket and finishes quit well.  Good continuation through the pins

 

For a low price point ball, global has a winner with this one.

Dislikes: none yet... well see
