The Ordnance Pearl mid performance bowling ball is a great compliment to the 900Global Ordnance. The pearl version contains the medium RG and high differential Projectile Symmetric core which is wrapped in the S70 Pearl coverstock. This ball is a good option when you need to maximize the backend reaction once the lane oil starts to break down.

Color: Magenta/Silver Pearl
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Core: Projectile Symmetric
Coverstock: S70 Pearl
Finish: 1,500 Grit Polished
RG: 2.54 (15# ball)

Drilling pattern: 78 x 4.5 x 44
Pin placement: Above bridge

One of the first balls I drilled, along with the Ordnance Solid, once I made the switch to 15 lb equipment. A pretty standard pin up drilling, on a symmetrical pearl, was always a core piece in my arsenal. Something that got through the heads, made a angular, yet controllable, motion off the end of the pattern, and complemented my benchmark ball. All of those things are accomplished by the Ordnance Pearl. I drilled this similarly to my old Truth Pearl (one of my all time favorite pearl balls) and have gotten a relatively similar reaction. The only difference I've noticed is that that Ordnance Pearl wants to rev up a little earlier than some other pearls, but it retains its energy very well for a strong roll through the pins.

The perfect compliment to the Ordnance, A new Symmetric Pearl for Medium to Medium/Heavy oil patterns. The Projectile weight block and well known S70 coverstock combination give this Pearl plenty of length, store plenty of energy but provide a more drastic move at the breakpoint as the pattern breaks down.

For me when I have thrown this ball and it is a perfect compliment to the Ordnance, and definitely when the lanes break down a little.  Having a similar core to the Drift, one of my favorite balls ever it is always a ball in my bag.

The Ordnance Pearl

The perfect compliment to the Ordnance solid.
When the lanes start to breakdown and the Ordnance solid is over reacting
the Ordnance Pearl will do the job. You can go deep inside with this one and it will still get back to the pocket with a lot of entry angle. It=s also a great down and in ball as well. If you don=t have a lot of revs for the big hook, straight down the line or a small belly out will work. My comfort zone when the lanes break down is around 18 15 out to 7 or 8 sometimes 10. The VLS gave me this layout for my 16mph speed and other factors. Pin to Pap 3. 0.875, Psa to Pap 4.0.625 and Pin Buffer 2.5 . The Ordnance Pearl and the Ordnance solid are the perfect benchmark ball combination, takes out all of the guess work.
