So this Tenacity ball

Anyone throwing one? Got one on the way. Debating how I want to drill it still. Looks promising.

Just drilled this ball and used it for first time last night. Rolled great only problem does not carry the corner pins(10 7pins and 2 10 pins. Lefty) so much for Dynamicore hype. Been wanting to try a Brunswick ball for sometime because of the Dynamicore and I didn't see the extra 13% carry. Just glad only have $118 in this ball including drilling.

And how was it compared to your usual set? There's no magic ball out there even though every company tries to tell you they have it.

Sounds more like an issue of not getting the right angle to the pocket

Regardless of whatever hype any ball company produces, the #1 factor in controlling a ball's shape is coverstock prep.  Weak corners on fresh oil are likely from the ball skidding too far down the lane (this was the same reaction I had OOB).  Give it a light scuff with a 3k pad and see how it looks in league this week.

who said anything about weak corners, just tried using it in another house on Tuesday and same thing blows the rack and 7 Pin can't move out because reads friction too early can't move in because reads friction too late. Great motion just can't get corners out.

That would be an over/under reaction. Surface is your friend to get rid of that. Or it's just not the right ball for the condition if you have something else that works better
