COMMENTS

The Attitude really has some attitude with it.  The Attitude Pearl with the Hero core in it is a great benchmark symmetrical every bowler needs in their bag.  The Attitude is a little cleaner than the Hero Pearl but is about a arrow stronger on the backend.  If you wanna give the pins a problem, be sure to add a attitude to your arsenal.

I really can't say enough good things about this ball.  It's controllable, strong through the pins, and seems to smooth out over/under reactions better than other balls in my arsenal. It's best used on medium to lower volume patterns but retains it's energy very nicely.

I would not expect a big skid/flip reaction with this ball like a Melee Jab Carbon or a DV8 Collision, but just a nice rolling symmetric that will give you confidence with its hitting power.

Mine is drilled pin just under ring finger to give it a smooth, even rolling reaction.  I'd recommend a similar layout or whatever is your favorite, you won't be disappointed.  Great performance for a mid-priced bowling ball!

COMMENTS


The Attitude has a very similar core and cover combination to the very successful Hero.  I find this ball to be a little longer and a bit more angular when comparing the two balls.  The Attitude is one of the best pearl benchmark balls on the market.  This one is frequently one of the first balls out of my bag currently in league.  I have it right between my 3D Offset and Melee Jab Carbon.  If it is not enough ball I switch to the Offset, if it is too much ball and I need more length I throw the Carbon.  This is ball is a fantastic value and is playable from all parts of the lane.  I also see this one working for most bowler styles.  This is truly one of the can't miss balls on the shelf for both its color combo and its reaction.

My love for the Hero solid made this a natural choice.  Great looking ball, which never hurts. What a nice, user-friendly reaction!

It reads the friction without over-reading the friction.  This translates into confidence.  When your eye sees what it anticipates seeing then the bowler can pry it off his hand and trust it.  I think this is more versatile than most pearls that want to go too long, then snap too hard. 

This is one that you can have in your bag every night and not regret it.
