COMMENTS

The super high performance skid/flip pearls are typically not the best types of balls for my style and what I like to see on the lanes, but the Command is a brand of skid/flip that I can actually use. I am somewhat rev dominant, so the big skid/flip balls are typically hard to manage in the back, but the Command actually does a really good job of blending the lanes while maintaining a sharp entry angle. It still does what it is intended to do, like get through the front and create angle down-lane, but it doesn't sacrifice control to do so.

I also think this would be a good ball for speed dominant players looking for a strong pearl. Because it won't blast through the front and never enter a good roll. The ball has some teeth, so I consider it to be a lot more useful than your typical skid/flip ball.
