Ball: Beast (2019)
Finish: 500/2000 Abralon Polished
PAP: 5", 1/8" Up
Layout: Pin under ring, CG stacked (2" Pin)

The Beast has a lot of pop for a lower-mid performance entry. With a light bulb weight block and using a basic layout the Beast gives me a very smooth and predictable ball motion. What impresses me most about the remake of this ball is how well it goes through the pins and providing more mistake room than I would expect from a LMP bowling ball.

The Beast was designed for lighter oil conditions and reacts well when it sees friction. It is ideal for those lighter conditions, however when I used it on medium volumes the Beast was still playable going straighter down lane while only sacrificing some hitting power.

COMMENTS

The Beast is a great ball to have when all else fails! Depending on the lane condition, you can certainly go back to basics with this type of ball and play an up and in shot due to the Skid-Flip reaction and Bend-It coverstock! This is a great ball to have in your arsenal for a THS! The reaction for this ball is really continiuous and will not overreact when it responds to friction (dry part of the lane).

Likes: Continuous / Does not overreact
