I DRILLED THIS BALL WITH THE PIN UNDER THE MIDDLE FINGER(BRUNSWICK LAYOUT 4E). I POLISHED IT TO A HIGH GLOSS WITH BLACK MAGIC ON THE THE SPINNER. IT GETS PERFECT DISTANCE WITH TONS OF BACKEND REACTION. THE BALL CARRIES GREAT. A GREAT BALL FOR THE PRICE. I RECOMEND THIS BALL FOR A AGGRESIVE DRY LANE BALL.

Getting this ball is a lot more difficult than throwing it well.

The comedy club opened by me ordering a 15lb 2 to 3 pin and 2 to 3 top weight.
Easy! right? The ball comes in 16lbs.  Now reordering the first ball 0 to 1 pin out the second one 1 to 2 but only 1 inch pin out.  The third one is a charm.

I walk in and drill ball number one the 16pounder!!!!!

Pin under bridge and cg kicked out to 3/4 side weight.  A 5 1/2 X 4 1/2.
My righty buddy takes one of the 15 pound 1 inch pin balls.

Both us found that this beautiful little fellow gets down the lane real nice and turns on shorter oil patterns with a very predictable and strong smashing arc.

Both had ear splitting carry!  Both light and flush.  As for comparison to our benchmark balls mine a demolition zone his a nighthawk m2.  Both of us had to mover about 8 boards with our feet.  Whereas I was standing 28 throwing 15 to 8 with my demo I would stand 19 and throw straight up the boards up 10.

These balls are real sleepers and I think fantastic on the lighter oil patterns
I'm seeing in Florida.  Mine with more sideweight and more pin out went a slight bit straigter in the fronts than my righty friends drilled the same with less pin out and less side weight.  His had a slightly earlier startup and a two board swing on the right.  HE LOVED IT.

My eyes like this ball movement a little better than I like the looks of the scout in this class.  The coverstocks of brunswick look just a little slower out the box for a little less of the skid snap extreme I see out of the scouts.
This could be just the rubbing compound(brunswick) vs reactive polish (columbia).  That's why I got the ball.  I loved the look of the standard groove but not the hit.

I think these pancake designs with the flip block as originated by the scout are the cats meow!  Everyone should get one and drill it weak.  It will almost have the small move of the pancakes(gyro's etc ) with all the hit of the standard two piece.  Look out light oil or short patterns! I think this brunswick piece along with the ebonite tornado blue sparkle are the best in this class.  Real good looking too!

Yes I have a great 16 for sale, want to drill the 15!

In comparison with my blue hot(good hit too) much less over under!

Good ball for specific conditions but please, let me digress.  
The Groove NOT SO "Dynamic" Reactive is a better name.  In oil it will give you no area if you send it wide it will not recover, check please and I'll have my entree to go thank you.

On dry though is when it feels at home, honey I'm home please make me a 10 in the pit mash martini thank you.

It hits well on oil too, not a mushy ball by any means and the best three piece reactive I've ever had and I've had a few.  

Great arsenal ball but will grab hard on dry and skate like Dorothy Hamill with grace and ease on oil.  

Bowl a turkey get a turkey, turkey; happy turkey day!

They call my house sloppy.  Night after night in league a 43 foot shot with supposedly stripped backends. Yeah right!

Balls I use every week in league, AMF Evolution Extra(a silly strong ball on carrydown this thing really rips), Deadly Virus, Voodoo Too Weak, once in a while I've been able to play straight up with an Eraser.

This week I don't know what happened supposedly someone finally mixed the stripper right!  The Eraser strikes in game 1 on a 14 to 1 trajectory, we have some backends here!

I now take out the Dynamic which in my experience is just like Tonygee describes in review below.  Drilling 4 X 4 1/2.

Never even in practice have I been able to swing this thing more than 12 to 10 and get enough angle to rip.

But tonight throwing 15 to 10 this thing is ripping the rack, light, flush and high.  After a little mental adjustment that I can really swing this thing this deep.  I rip out out a nice little 246 with an open in the last game of league.

Straight straight straight thru the heads and then "Honey I'm home, RIP!" Big sweeping board coverage!  Almost too much!

But the energy retention and carry every one of the few times I've been able to use it is the best of all balls I have!

IF you've seen it think the battle zone bullet but straighter thru the heads and mids.

Breakpoint control always the problem with this ball, if your pattern matches up use this.  It's obvious when this is not right, you will get over under that is crazy! If not, something stronger in the heads and mids.

Imagine me using this on a 43 foot shot, when two weeks ago the AMF Evolution Xtra(the silly strong ball) couldn't move 3 inches!

REGards,

PS looks great on the rack, on the lane, and ripping the rack!  
PPS I still believe the class of these pancake with puck balls! Weaker coverstock than current Powergroove, I like!
