Power Groove Dry/R is IMO the best option for almost dry conditiosn in the Brunswick line-up. Punisher is already pretty strong, needs some light oil, the Power Grooves are also quite strong, almost like the Punisher, but more arcing. But for dry: too strong. Even the Urethane Groove is not a true dry lane ball. It is very arcy, but reads the lane early and can lead to severe dry lane problems. The Dry/R has good length and is a smooth/weak pearl reactive. You won't need a so-called "performance ball" on the dry, unless you play very speed dominant - and then it does not really matter.

Monster slayer with a weak drilling. Also would recommend to learn various hand positions and try to throw a spinner technique!

Straght up the back of the ball creating an end over end roll is a better choice I think.Easier to master and better control of the back end.

It seems that few people dont know that its really hard to throw a spinner release without a light ball. In asian, 12-13lbs is the weight they use for that release.

If you're talking about pretty dry, then I believe the Power Grooves are a great choice. Mine tends to keep the pins low and mixing instead of flying over the top of the 4 and 7 pins.  
It's also a bonus when your opponent sees you striking with an entry level ball and he can't with his aggressive stuff.
When the lanes get really scorched the "performance" balls may or may not perform.

If you're thinking about the Dry/r message me I have one that has less than 4 games on it.

I just got a Zone Classic Red Pin... it's pretty good on dry lanes if you can find one.

You can't go wrong with the SlayR!!!! The best ball for drier conditions i've ever thrown (including Punisher,Groove,and Dry/R)
I drilled mine straight up stacked, pin under the bridge but i honestly don't think it matters, just like it said, the SlayR is for the boneyard dry conditions!

It most definitely is NOT for bone dry. YOu need head oil for the Slay/R to work. Heck, even sanded to 2000 grit and re-polkished to a high gloss, it needs head oil and decent dose of it.

The Dry/R is a much better light oil ball. It needs less head oil and has less backend than the Slay/R.
