NEW Avalanche Urethane
« on: May 17, 2010, 11:43:53 AM »
Decided to pick one of these up.. Ive heard a few different dates for release, so can anyone tell me an exact date?   Decided this over the slingshot.. I dont know why, but it just seems it would be more predictable in both roll and pocket entry..  Anyone else thinking about this one?

Rico pattern doesn't make the ball hook earlier. It depends partially on your PAP. It puts the pin at the same distance as being above your ring finger in most cases.

My equipment that is drilled on the Rico pattern still gets plenty of length with a more controlled back end.

If you watch towards the end of this vid with both being shinned up the Rico is more controlled on the backend. I think it would be a good pattern to try if you've used it before.

It makes it hook MUCH earlier than if it were above your ring finger. That''s 90% of the premise behind the Rico drilling!!! Making the ball smoother and more controlled and that''s done because it IS earlier.
C''mon, the pin is almost 3" lower. It''s more controlled because it is so much lower. Additional flare helps it be more continuous, but not on a low flaring ball like the Avalanche.

Additionally for the majority, you''re changing the VAL angle to a drastic degree, and putting the MB almost out on the VAL itself.

Incorrect, on drilled symmetric cored balls the PSA migrates toward the thumbhole.

Thank you for your response, and the reason I ask is because I don't know.  Hence, I ask.  As you can see, opinions differ, and I appreciate all opinions.  It was just something I was thinking about, and I read about it a few times about guys Rico drilling their urethane balls and really liking them.  I just had my old SD-73 done, and it just really woke the ball up, but not a ball for light oil.  Thanks!

You're buying a ball because the lanes are too dry and you basically want length. Then why in heaven's name would you put a drilling on it that makes it hook it earlier than normal???????????

Define "MUCH earlier"??? Then watch the video and see if that matches your definition. That is the similar reaction I've seen from balls drilled on the rico pattern. They don't hook out of your hand and the pin from your PAP is still on average over 4.5" for most bowlers or more.

With a pearl urethane ball you can drill it to roll early but that will still be relative to the balls capability. Pearl reactive or pearl urethane isn't going to start hooking out of you hand because the ball is drill pin down. It will start to hook sooner but early still not likely.
