Zone Classic-Red Pin
« on: April 03, 2006, 03:58:38 PM »
I am kind of new to this board, lots of reading, not a member until today.  I just ordered a Zone Classic Red Pin, and was wondering, for those who throw one, what there favorite drilling for this is, and what reaction works best for everyone.  This probably won't affect the way I will get mine drilled, I am just learning about drilling and find it interesting.

Well it depends what kind of a bowler you are i understand that that ball dosent hook a whole lot so i think you would benefit from a stronger drilling perhaps putting the pin next to the ring finger. Talk to your ball driller and maybe let him watch you bowl and then he will know what to do with the ball

It is a very weak ball, looking at the coverstock, great for dry to medium-dry lanes. You can even use it for corner spares!

You can either drill it really strong if you want it to move at all with some backend snap, or, alternatively for a smoother reaction when you want to use it for spares or truly toasted lanes, e. g. with a label drilling (CG in palm). Also depends on the pin distance you got to keep the ball legal.

You should just watch out, since this ball has a asymmetrical core and if you have a high track, that you do not put the PSA marker on the track half of your ball (e. g. when drilling label leverage), because this might cause negative flare and uncontrollable ball reactions.
