It didn't do much at all the first 5-6 frames.  Then it came to life....

I was only able to get 2 games in before the had cosmic bowling.  I played in the oil and it didn't have much pop at all.  I moved right into the dry and it was really making a hard arc then.  

I haven't decide whether to polish it for Monday and see if I like or leave it.

The Impluse Zone did it's best for me sanded at 4000 Grit with a 4000 grit Abralon Pad. I have found with another ball that I have, it also works best at 4000 grit sanding. this 4000 grit sanding with an Abralon Pad makes the ball to appear to be "Highly Polished."

I've got about 10 games on it now.  I hit it with 600 grit sandpaper and 2000 grit Ebonite polish.  

This ball doesn't flare much for me, which was rather surprising.  This drilling gives an old urethane look.  It comes off the end of our THS rolling, then makes a nice even controllable arc to the pins.  The strength of the arc is rather surprising on fresh oil and clean backends.  

Carrydown?  It seems to hate it.  I started 11-7 today hitting dead flush.  As I carried the oil down, the reaction got weaker and weaker until I was barely hitting the headpin.  I moved 2 right with my feet and played up 9-10 and was back in the hole.  

I am still very impressed with the reaction and ball itself.  I haven't had a ball this controllable and arcy in quite some time.
