layout to get a older urethane reaction
« on: December 19, 2013, 06:15:34 AM »
I love my karma urethane, but I'm having a really hard time finding another newer urethane ball or even an old urethane ball in good shape. I was wondering if anybody had an idea what kind of layout would work on something weaker like a strike king or slingshot to make it roll like an older urethane ball?

Depends on your pap. If you do not want a weight hole you need a little longer pin to pap to get the cg closer to your grip line.

You will also need to adjust the surface. I use 2-2.5" pin to paps for a sooner read. They still hook like resin.

No idea. It was a fresh shot. The Blue Ringer was new out the box. After a few games it has since picked up to be quite strong. Urethane typically hooks earlier and flattens out. It is hard to accomplish with resin.

Plastic with surface can.

Compared to your other Big B stuff Strike King & LT-48 how does the Blue Solid stack up?  Would you call it a medium condition 40 to 41 foot or light-medium?

I put the Ringer Solid almost board for board with my Beatdown on the same layout.

The Ringer Solids like the other two Ringers is a lot of ball for the money. Medium to heavy if needed no problem depending on layout and surface. Great ball.
