Got this ball a couple of days ago, and drilled it up.
Drilled this one stacked, but the pin about 1 inch right of ring finger and "cg" out there as well ended needing and a weight hole.
Fresh house shot it was easy to control, got down the lane pretty easy, and made a big move down the lane. Had too slow down the speed a little, but, was able to get a good read on the ball. 15 games in and only had to move a little, no big adjustments needed as the day went on.
This is a good ball so you don't have to cross a lot of boards more length and goodback ends.
This ball just bumped  it's way into my bag replacing the " U-Turn Particle Pearl"

OK folks I drilled this ball exactly like my Wrath XP

3-4 inch Pin top weight 3 1/4 OZ

Drilled for Righty

I drilled this ball pin beneath ring finger, CG swung towards Axis points. CG is about 1" inch away from thumb with a Low extra hole.

This ball gets down the lane similar to the Wrath XP, but it makes a hard flip. It does need medium oil to maximize ball potential, If you play with on dry it may roll to early and with a higher pin it could flip to much (that's on Drier conditions). But a control drill is certainly great for your house conditions. The Wrath and Wrath XP definately compliment each other.

If I could only bowl my weight, I still would not average 200.   But hey I still damm sexy!

My Wrath was laid out 5" x 3 1/4" from my PAP. On the fresh, this ball was great. It went down the lane and when it got to the break point, it looked like it hit a rock and went left (I am right-handed). I was really impressed with the power this ball had for a mid-price release, mainly because it utilizes a core design from a previous Columbia high performance release (Ti Boss, sorry, no Ti nugget). As the oil started to carry down to the backend, the Wrath started to wiggle and give me over/under. I hit the flare bowties with a 1000 Abralon and this helped tremendously. Out of the box, I compared it side-by-side to my Hyjinx and Wrath XP. The Hyjinx was about 5 or 6 boards less hook and the Wrath XP was about 3 boards more with a smoother ball motion. The formerly questionable Columbia 300 ball lineup/arsenal is finally starting to fall together nicely for the first time since when the Rock/Messenger series or balls were out.

SPECS: Pin is above and between the fingers and the mass bias is out one inch and the PAP is about 4 1/2 inches. OOB finish on ball

SABRE LANES THS: 38 Feet buff to about 45 feet and very dry on the outside no real hang if you throw it there. I release throw the ball 13th or the general area and the ball pretty much does the rest for me, break point at 7-5 with alot of give right and not alot to the left ball comes back when it is past the arrows and makes a hard controllable turn and smashes the pocket. great hit and carry keeps pins low and throw messengers around pretty good ball has alot of range as long as it gets enough dry lane to hook on. No real complaints here if I pull it though I will guarantee myself a ten pin.

MOUNTAIN BAY MASTERS: Heavy juice oil gutter to gutter and a low ratio alot like a sport pattern down to about 41-43 feet. Buff is unknown but it might be a reversed buff. OOB finish on ball.
Backend here is jaw dropping. Move a little right of the former pattern but play a similar line on the lane outside 5 you are in trouble pull it and you pick up the 7 pin. 13 at the arrows and 7 at the break very similar line as SABRE's shot just difference is the backend the first game at Mountain bay the backend in uncontrollable it gets down to the buff and just peels left leaves scorch marks on the lane I leave alot 4-9s with it and thus do not use it the first game very often. Games two and three the carry down helps cool the ball down but it is still pretty wild, I migrate left and play in more oil as the shot tightens ball still plays very clean through the front and a hard turn on the back gets past the heads real well a great ball for the carry down in this setting. Revs up quick and gives swing zone were there isn't albeit not much.

Overall: A good league ball hits hard carries well I haven't tried it in a tournament yet covers alot of boards. A great ball for fresh or broken down oil

The wrath is best used on a medium-oily shot. It doesn't really have a very strong backend reaction, but it still gets the job done if thrown correctly. i have my Wrath sanded with the pin above the ring finger with a 2 inch pin out. I use it when nothing else in my bag is working. Nothing too special. Just a bowing ball.
