Red Zone mini review
« on: August 03, 2006, 03:06:35 PM »
All right, I drilled a Red Zone a couple of weeks ago (after Scott got back from the Mini/HIgh roller with one and I kinda "stole" it from him) and so far I love it.

3" pin
Drilled 4 1/2 x 3 3/4 pin 1 1/2" above center grip

Same layout as my Classic Zone #1 (2 and 3 yet to be drilled), except my Classic has the pin 2 1/2" from center grip. Ball in OOB condition gets downlane very nice, picks up aout 2 feet sooner than the Classic and delivers the same backend reaction. Bowled on a fairly fresh house condition today, was able to get play around 3rd arrow, out to about 7 and "the spot" and ball made a solid move to the pocket. Threw the same line as my Classic (again similar drilling and the same OOB surface) and Classic went about 2 feet longer before making the move. So far awesome 1-2 combo for a medium oiled 40 foot THS.

Got to also use the ball on a semi-burnout condition (yes there are lefties in the world) and was able to play a tighter line, ball reacted very well through carrydown where my Classic seemed to skid along with my Smokin (drilled 5 x 2 1/2) Red Zone moved was continuous through the backend.

Overall in an OOB surface, ball is definately a bit stronger than a Classic Zone and a wonderful addition to the Zone line. I am debating on wether to drill another one and take the surface down to 800 grit (similar to a Strike Zone for more oil or not). Awesome compliment to the Classic with the polish. Thank you again to Brunswick and please continue to make the best quality products on the market.

Thanks for reading,
